Ah thanks OK that is good to knownwgg; (abbreviation for NorthWestGarrattGuy)
Most of the people on this site are in the UK, so asking them to ship to Seattle means shipping will cost more than the track is worth.
You would be better served on MLS or LSC or USA ebay, etc.
hmmm maybe but we are still figuring out how to get it to workUhh, I would be interested to see if you could print it more cheaply than purchase used...
the 3D printer we are still firguring out how to set up the software for itpardon what seems like an interrogation, but get what to work? The deadrail system, or the track?
Lots of experience here on the forum, and many more people that "do it themselves" in my opinion and definitely a different view than what is "common wisdom" stateside, i.e. more options.
yeah just have to aquire funding from my dadGood luck with your printer.. I have resisted the urge, so far..
But a CO2 laser cutter, just might be on my letter to Santa!
I would think a 3D printed 'joining track' to connect the two makes of plastic track should be feasible?
Do pop back, and let us know, how you get on?
hmm does it work with voxelab printer's which i believe use PLAI have just bought an Creality Ender3 V2 and it was virtually plug and play straight out of the box (after a bit of assembly which was easy to do).
The most important thing to do is get the bed "level" and have a good slicer, Cura is a popular one for beginners like myself but I am using Creality Slicer which is based on Cura so they are similar.
There are plenty of videos on youtube about bed levelling.
A couple of place where you can get stl files for track prints.
On public request comes track in 45mm gauge. Straight track for 45mm gauge tracks , common used in Garden railways (16mm and LGB). The length off the tracks are made so they are printable on most 3D-printers. There are track holders for printed sleepers och wooden sleepers.

I am printing LGB style bogies for my wagons at the moment but will be moving on to stone and brick walls for buildings.
The 3D section on this forum has a number of helpful people visiting.
Filament is about £20 per kilo, so I would imagine it costs slightly less to print until you factor in the time element.Uhh, I would be interested to see if you could print it more cheaply than purchase used...
