Water tight and ready to print!

Okay, it’s all cleaned up and uploaded to Shapeways. For only $100, I can get this printed, but I’m going to design a couple of small test pieces to try out as well. So, you’ll all have to wait a few more weeks for the print photos. Now that I’ve got the little dance with MeshLab and AccuTrans all figured out, getting a printable model is actually straightforward.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in this drawing, it is that SketchUp! doesn’t like working in HO scale. It is much more comfortable in full size. One of the small pieces is a truck, and I’m designing that full size, so we’ll see how Accutrans does with the conversion to HO scale.
