Hi - for anyone interested here are a few statistics related to the 3D printer consumables used for wagon #4.
Total part count: 54 parts
Total Resin used: 80.78 ml (build parts only with no supports).
Approx cost for materials: $12.04

Note: the above numbers do not include supports which can vary quite a bit as it depends on specific part and it orientation etc.
A worst case estimate is that supports would add something like 25% to 50% to the materials used (and therefore cost).

Amazing!

Maybe I missed something but could you tell me how you model/design the kit? How does it work from sketch to actual print?

Or is the software available ready for print?

Hi - all my models start with a 3D software model that I design from scratch. Biggest part of any project is finding accurate information and drawings with dimensions to work from. If you look through some of my other posts on the K3 and M1 projects, I explain a little about the process and software tools/programs/printers used to build the models.

Happy Modeling

A 3D software model designed from scratch. That sounds impressive.

:idea: If you'd make a thread about this process i'd be glad to follow it.

Tnx and keep up the great work.
