Model Train Clears the Way

by • July 17, 2016 • No Comments

We are always thrilled when our Shopowners and and their buyers collaborate. Stonysmith not long ago shared this amazing project by David Wolf in our forums. So, how did this train become so amazing precisely? David inserted a controllable motor into a Z Scale Model Railroad Train engine to let the snowplow spin in a realistic way.

Stony notes “Here is a few amazing modeling. This is the kind of thing where I declare that
I am only manufacturing the canvas, and it takes a real artist to turn it into artwork.”

Check out the video at a lower place for this plow in action, and the original thread, that details the system
David followed to assemble the 3D printed parts.

We are continuously inspired by the way our community collaborates and hope to share additional stories like Stony’s soon. Have you partnered with another maker to turn it into a fewthing phenomenal? We want to understand
of it! Email community@shapeways.com.
