Steel Gate

Another 3D print for use on the slot car layout.

A galvanised steel gate model. Something to add a little bit of variation to the scenery.

The detail I could get on the upper surface was better than I expected. To give it some scale, the hinges on the right of the gate in the above image are about 1mm wide. Now look at the catch on the left, the little slot just visible on the lock plate is only about 0.5mm tall.

The side facing the printing bed, shown above, did not come out very neatly no matter what supports or which way I printed it. I'm filling and sanding that side to make it good.

It's just about ready for painting.
