Lars,very exciting progress


Lars,

Good progress!

You are certainly "modeling"that with this technology we are all within reach of doing the same.

Hope others in our community will post the same type of process.

Thanks again for the inspiration!

Thanks Dean,

I have been down with the flue for a couple of weeks, but finally I'm starting to feel better. I'm quite excited about the scale 1:14 version of Australia II.
It will be a lot easier to bring to the pond. We are still "enjoying" winter here, and the preparation of the plugs will have to wait several weeks, until I can work outside. Posting a picture of the work I'm doing on the Liberty keel. I have invested in two 4K 32" pro monitors (2 years old, bought used) and a new pro graphics card called Quadro P4000 (also an eBay find). This has transformed my computer into a pro workstation. It is a great platform. Can't wait to 3D model some more 12mR boats.

I hope I don't bore you with my posts. Finished Liberty this afternoon. Keel is finished. I have learned that it is much easier to model the hull first, apply the surfaces to the hull, and then model the keel afterwards. Liberty is in the printer. This week I have pretty much every evening at home. No hotel nights.
I hope to do some more real model building too this week.

12m


I agree above - Not boring at all Lars

I find this very interesting and educational

besides - I'm a lover of 12 meter boats too.

Keep going!

Thanks James,

I can't wait to do some more hands on work on these plugs outside. We are having a very cold March here in Sweden this year.
I had a print go bad on me today. I lost 25 hours worth of printing. Re-started it again tonight. It's the second piece of Liberty.

Courageous is in the shed, waiting for me to finish her too... In time...

Posting some sailing pictures. US 16 Columbia in scale 1:12. and Australia II in scale 1:10.6

I have this weird idea to re create this picture...
Australia II and Azzurra are printed. Challenge 12 and France 3 are left... I have the drawings... Time will tell...
I'm having a bit of an issue with my printer. Bad connection on the heat bed. I hope this section finishes, and then I will have to take it apart and fix it.

Hi Lars

I wonder if you can get the blueprints of the Newport Offshore boat hoist from Chevalier...................

Cheers!

That would be cool Karl.

I will start with the 12mR's. I'm having a bit of an issue with my heatbed right now. A cable is worn off. I hope it will finish printing. I will take it apart and fix it once this piece of the hull is finished.

I will work some more on Kookaburra II tonight.

Thanks,

Yes, both boats are built from scratch by me. For Columbia, I built a mold, and the hull is made of fiberglass and polyester. Australia II is a one off balsa wood boat that was originally going to be a plug. I have now a 3D printed version that will be the plug.

I'm posting here to help inspire people ( I hope) and promote this great hobby.

Thanks for your kind comment. Posting a picture of the Kookaburra II surface model I'm working on.
