Got round to making a cage soldering jig. Very happy with the outcome and the fit of the fish mouthed brass tubes.
Hope the soldering works out; lots to do and some concern the aluminium jigs will conduct heat out of the tubes quicker than I can heat them. We will see.
Some 3d printed game hardware / table scenery. Tried to design Warhammer Eldar styled shield walls. The fantasy Orc is a bit out of context with the 40k idea and the sci-fi alien egg pod.
Designed and printed the ork trash styled game table scenery using Solidworks (my usual mechanical CAD software). They look good but a little small (to fit the B9Creator platform).
Trying to learn Sculptris; a clay modelling software package (free) and designed the Alien egg pod. The software will take some getting used to after years on the mechanical software. The pods are printed at about 15mm tall and did need a bit of carving where my detailing in the software wasn't as sharp as I thought.
