Today I started printing my first H0 railroad-related items, with my Anycubic Photon-S printer.
I managed to stick 18 signals onto the build-plate. It did take about 6 hours to print.
Eventually, I will re-arrange the signals in the PWS file, so I can print 24 of them, at the same time. (24 will take the same amount of time !)
I need to take down the layer exposure-time by 2 seconds, because the walking-grids are not fully open. Oh well, taking the exposure time down by 2 seconds, I will gain about 50 minutes in printing time, (about 1500 layers, 2 seconds per layer)
For a test-print, they came out better then expected !

Please take a look at the website of MSC De Pijl VZW at https://de-pijl.be/downloads.html and scroll down to “3D Prints”,
if you are interested in 3D printable files for NMBS signals of the old or new type …

Note to myself ! don’t put such small printed items in warm water after printing, they will not stay “straight” !
Put those small printed pieces directly into the curing machine, after the IPA bath !

*UPDATE*
In the meanwhile, I started designing my German “Flügel-signale”, my first 32 poles are printed, on one print-plate.
It did take about 8 hours of printing time !
Furthermore, I printed 3 different “brick rollers”.
Just add a flat, wet road of plaster or clay, an roll a brick roller over it, to get a brick or cobblestone pattern in the road !
