G-Scale building for garden model railway – part 3 – Adding a roof and other features

Monday, December 24th, 2018

In this final part of the design for a 3D printed model railway building I’ve added additional features such as the door, windows and roof as well as adding a smoke generator. These were all designed in TinkerCAD. These are designed in TinkerCAD and then exported for 3D printing. The smoke generator is fitted into […]

G-Scale building for garden model railway – part 2 – TinkerCAD code blocks

Friday, December 21st, 2018

This is an update on my first outdoor model railway building created using a 3D printer. In the first version of the model railway building I created the building in several different parts, in this version I have decided on just 3. The main part is the body of the building, then the roof and […]

3D printed Aquarium – Gift idea for Megaquarium Computer Game

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Megaquarium is a computer game where you get a design your own aquarium tourist attraction. It’s like Roller Coaster Tycoon, based around a Sea Life Centre. My son wants it as a Christmas present, which is great except in the days of digital downloads a bunch of binary digits doesn’t quite feel the same as […]

Raspberry Pi Christmas Project – Christmas House and Neopixel Snowman

Monday, December 17th, 2018

This year I’ve been creating a 3D model of a building for an outdoor model railway. Technically it’s a building for a weigh bridge rather than a house, but I’ve given it a Santa’s Grotto make-over for Christmas and so Christmas House sounds better. The building is designed in TinkerCAD based on a real building […]

TinkerCAD 3D Snowman for 3D printing G-Scale model railway

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

This is a model that I’ve made using TinkerCAD. A snowman designed for 3D printing on a home 3D printer. It’s been created to approximate G-Scale (1:22.5) for outdoor model railways. It’s also hollow so that you can insert an LED inside and have it light-up (assuming it’s printed with a light coloured PLA) so […]
