The girders look great Mike, very convincing. Glad that the printer has worked out so well for you :)

Thank you, having been in awe of others on here, and the Internet, and seeing what is happening, I thought I'd best have a go... The printer officially paid for its self today.
The last set of girders were printed out.. 1 roll (1kilo) of green filament, 1 £225. Printer and a 1.5Mt's long bridge
I've had my money worth IMHO.
Everything else is a bonus.

I have used just under 2kilos (2rolls) of 1.75mm Filament, and 1 length of 20mm electrical conduit, from screwfix, I need to start on the retaining wall and the abutments next, but it's getting there IMG_20200824_144918.jpg IMG_20200824_150944.jpg IMG_20200826_124051.jpg IMG_20200827_134455.jpg IMG_20200827_103650.jpg IMG_20200829_131755.jpg IMG_20200829_131707.jpg
