Hi Robert

  Yes we have made some progress (even though it appears quiet there always something going on) - test fitted the FEA-F buffer beam conversion and found a clash with the coupler arm. Also fitted the coupler and found that too long by 2mm so these have been altered in CAD and await the next shapeways order. Main thing is that's it works. If I can get my layout back up in the garage this week I can try it over some points and see what happens but it works round bends OK both push and pull.
  The coupler has to be fitted before the buffer beam is glued in place due to the wagon design so need to wait for the new bits then well do up a full painted prototype if you're still up for it?

Regards
Russ on nights.

Hi this sounds very good news and certainly up for the model.
Cant find source but at work I was shown pic of a Swiss RHTT on a narrowgauge rack line - 45gall drum on wagon with a manual valve and two delivery pipes!! Will try to find a link at work tomorrow..

Good luck with testing
Thanks for update
Robert

Hi Matt

Thanks for the question - Some progress is being made.

A pair of RHTT's are currently being painted to see what they turn out like and Railtec have been contacted about transfers but no reply as yet.

The buffer beam conversions are due here this week - fingers crossed!!

Regards
Russ

Hi Guys,

Its been a bit quiet on this thread but some progress at last...

Transfer design is in progress!

Ought to be just in time for the RHTT season.

Remember you'll need a dapol FEA-B spine wagon set to mount this on. We've got the handrails and finally the FEA-F conversion buffer beam with extended couplings. And they work!

Russ

Hi Guys

Getting stocks up ready for release and shapeways have rejected the order as its now "outside the guidelines" for FUD.

Its not changed at all and it printed fine the last time - what are they playing at? Unimpressed - any alternatives come to mind for FUD equivalent?

Regards
Russ

They changed wall edge thickness again i think. And thin structures unsupported under .6mm i think.

Give Chris at CWRailways a bell, he has a printer comparable to FUD. Only reason ive not used him is he is cheaper if you buy say five units whereas i am only ordering one at a time at the moment cwrailways@gmail.com ... I would definitely use him if i was buying to sell on..

Hi Paul

Thanks - Yes - hes already on my list of ones to try if we dont get anywhere with shapeways. Ideally want to do a test piece first.

But very good to know someone else is getting positive vibes etc

Shapeways have also booted the weedkiller MPV (so probably the other versions too). Silly people.

Hi Guys

Getting stocks up ready for release and shapeways have rejected the order as its now "outside the guidelines" for FUD.

Worth complaining to service@shapeways. I think they are beginning to get used to hearing the message that "random approval based upon the mood of the operator" isn't cutting it.

Also if its not violating any actual meaningful rule you could re-upload it and try again - chances are that unless its real problem it'll just get accepted. The fact they fail stuff they've already printed really wants fixing. They just need a "this works" flag. It's pretty dumb not to have it.

Hi Guys

Partly good news - RHTT modules are showing as in progress today. The only thing they have rejected (again) is the MPV. David's on the case with customer services. What a fiasco considering its all been printed before and nothing has changed - I really dont like moving goal posts...

Trial items sent to CWR so we'll have some test pieces at some point from an alternative British service. Should also point out that if your happy with WSF then you might as well goto 3DprintUK who do all our prototypes for us - exceptional customer service, good prices not to mention fast service. SLS(WSF) just isn't upto FUD detail but has its uses. http://www.3dprint-uk.co.uk/

Hi Guys,

Following a delivery from shapeways - RHTT sets are now available. If your interested then please PM me.

You will need to acquire your own Dapol spine wagon set OR contact Vonzack for one of his 3Dprinted versions.

Etch handrails are supplied but you will need to get your own decal when they become available from John at precision decals

Regards
Russ
