RSC13 sideframe test print – arrived and is good

DSC00833
I was just home to make a quick coffee and, as luck would have it, I was just getting ready to head back to the office when the Canada Post driver appeared at my door with a parcel from Shapeways. Inside that box was the first test print of the RSC13 sideframes.

I am so excited!

I’ve now had them in my hands for about five minutes so these are literally my first impressions:

  • The look fantastic!
  • The inner and outer equalizer beams printed perfectly. Since this was really the biggest reason to explore the medium, I couldn’t be more happy.
  • The axle spacing matches the Kato RSC2 truck perfectly

Now to upload the latest drawing with the final detail revisions and these will be available for production if anyone needs a set.

  1. Your excitement about this delivery is contagious, Chris. Although I may never model an RSC13, I’m glad you took the initiative and were rewarded with your own product. I hope they do well for you. Cutting out the middleman – an excellent use of modern high technology!

    Congratulations!
    Eric
