Digital Picture Frame Car 3D Printed
« on: March 01, 2020, 05:52:52 pm »
I noticed that Lionel made a digital billboard car, and it got me thinking. I can make that!

So here it is... My version of a digital billboard.

The car is a regular Lionel flat car. The holder was created in Vectary and printed on a Creality CR10s Pro using Simplify 3D. The material is Overture black PLA. I used the black PLA so it matched the car. The picture frame is an Insignia NS-DPF3G that I got used from ebay.

You can upload whatever images you want to it. Be it advertisements, or personal photos. I myself have my wife and I on it :)

Check the link below if you want to make one yourself :D Enjoy :D

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!

Very Nice! I love seeing folks in the hobby using technology to enhance their experience.
The use of 3-D printers comes at a time when the hobbyist could use the ability to create items for their trains, layouts etc.
l love seeing the locomotives in various guages that are being created.
Being one who enjoys Whimsey in his trains, l could think of many things l could created with that machine.
Thanks for Sharing!
Happy Rails!
