I use Solidworks, at the moment I have a summer job as a designer at a company, so I have unlimited use to it on my laptop, which is awesome. I already 3D printed a section of inverted track (B and M) from a corkscrew.

Here is the finished loop! I glued it all together, painted it (blue and orange...go Hoos), and attached it to a wooden base. I also painted the footers grey. Hope you like it!

^Quick question, and it might require an obvious response, but how did you get the cross ties to curve around the loop like that? I keep using curve pattern, and it just keeps them all parallel.

There is an "align to seed" option with the curve driven pattern that you might have checked instead of the other option which is right above it (the name of which escapes me right now).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Very nice! The 4th last picture shows quite well the imperfections you were talking about, but it still looks awesome and I totally want one! :p

Finished the model, going to see if I can chop it up enough into enough pieces to print one, probably about a foot and a half tall. I will probably have to adjust all the tolerances, and that will come later.

Looks great! This is really an awesome utilization if the 3-D printer.

Can't wait to see how Goliath turns out!

I just made up a desktop model of MF's hill, and am thinking of putting up if someone wants to buy the 3D model of it. Its about a foot long and 7 in tall.

I found out you can export .stl files from Blender which I believe can be 3D printed. If that's true, since Blender can basically act as a converter for any 3D model file, you can use whatever 3D modelling program you want to 3D print! I can't wait to try this on the 3D Printer at my school, I'll definitely post pictures when I have something done
Sometimes when I am at the park I ask myself "Why is Kingda Ka open?"
