Sometimes while reading this forum, I come to think that I'm the only one who doesn't do jewelry with his B9.
But I know there are others. How about showing what you do with your B9.

(The image is 2k pixels wide, click to enlarge)

So I did make a start with an image of the things I created since December last year. Of some I did more prints, but this is just to show some variety. I even used some misprints as shown in that other thread about large models.

Feel free to add images of your prints.
No change that to:
Please add images of your prints,

Regards
Stephan

What happened to the small waggon (second last image) ?
Never seen threads (hairs) like that.

More model rail parts from me, these are all 1/43 scale components. The second picture is composed of three different parts.

They look very detailed - perfect. What are the parts in the top image for ? A clock, a scale ? Do the parts move ?

The gears are for the door gear on a hopper wagon. I'm not sure of the design intent for these, as I did them for a guy I know, but I think they could be made to mesh and move together.

Nice models here and nice Website brumbaer, I read almost every article :). I saw that for the Epic Bastion you have the famous holes, did you try to enable the overlift for the whole print?

I've tried making gears and they can work but the materials tend to wear away pretty quickly. I wound't try it for anything which needs to run for a long time (motor gearbox for example)

Grow them with red or red/cherry mix and get someone to cast them for u if u need something that will last.

Yes, I've been looking at that for a few parts. Unfortunately I've not found anyone nearby who can/will do casting in brass at a low enough cost. I'm sure that they exist, I've just not found them yet.

Thanks Samuel,

I tried over lift, but it never worked for me - because of z-axis trouble, which didn't show otherwise.
But I did the Z-Axis upgrade yesterday and did a print with a small overlift to test the upgrade today.
A fortress wall: 1mm thickness, 84 mm long, 35 mm wide, 45mm high and it showed a hole. I could try a larger over lift value, but somehow I can't find the enthusiasm for another 7 hour test print.
