Why not building the cardboard box and the rubberfoam in 3D too?

Wow
Must say great work, when and if i get that far might just ask for you to build me a C.M.

Sat i will go to get the proper sized brass, some stuff for stand offs
and maybe start work in a day or two ( things are going so slow)

fooled around a wee bit with some scrap wood and the brass i have on hand (need a wee bit better jig to hold the brass) but all in all things are lining up fairly good maybe whem i get the jig built that dad has in mind things will go even better

Hey all, just a quick reply, I'm still here, I've just been so busy with the eagle stuff that I did't had the time to post.

I hope to have some updates soon!

it's so funny, my eagle traveled from Brazil to the Netherlands and now it's in Texas, But more on this later on

Cheers for now, Nico.

I do have a question about the model itself. Are you finished with the detail work on it yet or do you still have more to do? I ask because - at least in that pic - the hallway sections seem to be devoid of much detailing.

Hi Brian,

Thanks!! and yes I do still have a lot of detailing to do, I just didn't had much time the past few months, work comes first

But in the near future you will see some stunning details, and high resolution close ups

Cheers, Nico.

This is slightly off topic, but I have a question for nico (or anyone else who can answer). On average, how much does it cost to get the 3D printing done? For instance, on the Eagle CM, how much would it/did it cost to get the three pieces 'printed'? (Note: I am not looking to make my own Eagle - just trying to get an idea of how much it would cost to get some relatively simple parts manufactured for a completely different project.)

And when one gets the final product, must one then make a casting of it, or can one treat it as a model unto itself (since I don't know what the product is actually made of and I don't know what goes into or is involved with casting etc and have no interest in mass producing the item).

Obviously I haven't a clue as to what I am talking about here, so this is more to get an idea of what sort of costs etc are involved here than anything else.

Hi Brian,

Just as an indication, the printer that printed my parts took about 64 hours to just print one half of the CM, but of course there are much faster (more expensive) machines.
To print that one half costs about 150 U.S. dollar ( But I had a bargain for this one)

Cheers

Wow, that much just for that one half. Scary.

And are you saying the 150 was the bargain? Or that you got a bargain and it didnt actually cost that much for you personally?

So does that mean the total cost for just the three parts of the CM together was about $450 US dollars?
