New Technology Modelling – Silhouette Cameo Cutter

Hi all,

With the recent articles in the Gazette on 3D printing etc. I thought that I would start a new topic on my journey with my silhouette cutter.

My good lady bought it for me for my birthday and although it’s my birthday today, she let me have the cutter a couple of weeks ago when it arrived on the premise that the warranty was running so I might as well be using it.

After reading many of the very useful threads on RMweb and a couple of trials I managed to turn this:

into this

 

Silhouette Cut LNER Ducket

Final trim

For those that wonder, it’s an LNER Ducket, destined to be added to a Kirk 51’6″ LNER luggage brake van. – The Kirk kit as supplied represents the earlier diagram without the ducket and it seemed like a worth while small project to start with.
