Hi All

I have a question:

What would be the best way to turn some old railway carriage plans into an object in TurboCAD Pro v8 i also have the power pack so i can then 3D print them.

i have all views sides ends top etc. scanned

Johnny i have your Vid's showing bringing the scans in but feel i need some more suggestions

i am redrawing them as they are not total accurate using the measurements in the drawings to start with.

 Hi Gang! I just got back from a Solidworks convention,so I'm headed to bed. yes Brian: Continue your redraw,and let's suppose your headed to HO Scale, make the walls at least 2mm thick. you will need the thicknes for (2)shells, 3 shells may close them up as 100% filled,(.4mm nozzleXshells,plus the squish= about.5-.6 width per layer even with a (10%) fill If the roof is steep- over 45 degrees, no support will be needed, a 'standard' roof angle will need support, so that will need to be it's own part ( unless you don;t mind all the fuzzy's inside) ;D
