I’m a Martian

February 2, 2020


I joined a Facebook group called 3D Printing for Model Trains and started to see what inexpensive resin printers were capable of. Blew my mind….

Some of you may remember my past foray into 3D when I printed up some scale beavers.

What really got me was a post by Kurt Bainum where he showed the level of detail he was getting printing in HO scale. Then I stared watching YouTube videos and as they say, the rest was history.

Well I was hooked. So, I finally broke down and bought a 3D printer. I picked up a Elegoo Mars UV Photocuring LCD 3D Printer. There is A LOT to learn but happily a large community of owners called (yup) ‘Martians’ who I hope to learn from.

I’ve already got my eye on some nice models over at thingverse and tinkercad and now all I need is a bit of time to head downstairs and see what I can create.
