105ft Motor Minesweeper.
« on: August 30, 2018, 12:00:53 AM »

Evening all. After a spell doing other things It is time to build a boat. I have a bought a plan and hull from Sirmar for the Admiralty 105ft Motor Minesweeper and will be using a 3D printer to make the superstructure rudder skeg and motor/radio tray. I have been experimenting and I am encouraged by the results.

At the request of Chief Buffer NICK , some photo's . . . .



mine detection handling winch.



Various parts for said winch.



Foredeck insert.



Superstructure parts.



Assembly 1.



Assembly 2.



Assembly 3.


From Nick . . .
Most pleased with the results of my 3D printing efforts. The trickiest part is taking off the drawing and copying into Designspark Mechanical  to make the files for printing.Majority of parts printed at 0.075mm, 1mm for larger parts. The Superstructure has turned out really well, sweep winch has ended up with over 20 parts and counting. Decks will now also be printed.'

Thanks Bill. I really must get a decent camera, phone photos leave much to be desired.....

Phone cams are only any good in daylight, in bright sunshine their very good . . .even a 'proper' cam suffers in poor light.
What glues do you need for 3D printed parts ?
Does it depend on the material your printing in .

Cyano for PLA, epoxy works but parts can be peeled apart. Methyl Chloride is also good but prohibitively expensive.  For ABS I use acetone.
