I needed a cool looking scratchbuilt load for my scratchbuilt flatcar. So I drew up a section of oil pipe. It's 16mm I.D. pipe. The flange is 24mm O.D. with 18 1.5mm holes. The unflanged ends were glued together to make a 40mm OAL section. Here's the drawing.








And here's the section of oil pipeline.




Now where did I leave those 1.5mm NBWs?

Nice looking item there Jim. I see you are putting that machine to use making up items. Love to see the finished built-up bracing crate for your flatcar load.

Nice Jim,
You're really getting the hang of 3D modeling!

Thanks Dave, I'm learning.

Here is the pipe carrier hot off the printer. Not glued yet in the final position. As you can see, the 'drop' in the re-purposed (not really) depressed center flatcar created a bit of a problem to get the pipe to lay horizontal. I'm waiting (3 hours) for the second pipe that is now on the printer before finalizing the location.

I think that is a great looking setup on that drop center flatcar.
My only suggestion would be to add interest by making up a scratchbuilt wooden crate and place in under the center section, under the pipe flanges, to look like the other parts (nut, bolt, etc.) of the pipe installation being shipped together on the flatcar.

Yep, the box is in the queue, along with the coupler pockets, brake cylinder, brakewheel, etc. I need a second printer.


Here's the second pipe with the parts boxes. Steel cables next.

Jim, That's a neat looking car and load, now you only need another several hundred of each to get the pipeline completed on schedule :)

Louis's suggestion(and your plan) to have crate(s) with assembly parts will look good there under the pipes.

Thanks Bill I appreciate your comment,

I've actually got 4 of them going concurrently. I'm surprised how well the pipe has come out. I'm really pushing the precision limit of the printer. Printing with a .35mm nozzle @ 215C. That primer/surfacer will look a little ratty until I put a finish coat on the car.

Thanks Tom,

I'm using a delta variation of the REPRAP design 3D printer I built. 280C max temp head and up to 80C heated bed. Using that .35mm nozzle gives this setup good detail, but very slow.

Looks good to me, Jim! Just don't send that pipe under the Great Lakes!

Very cool!

Nice work there Jim'. Those pipes really look quite convincing. Just don't burn out the printer'...sounds like you are really pushing it pretty hard'...

That's a serious looking load. Very nice.
