    Too Funny James!!
    Thanks for doing that though! Had totally forgotten it was a BELL
    Wicked nice Bell tone and reverb!!
    Reminds me of our church bell that was connected to a 40+' 1.5" Manila rope...Used to lift my 10yr old body up 4' once it got going, and could be heard for miles.
    WAY too loud to call the kids in for supper though
    Thanks again for the Reality.

    Bell 3D Printed full scale...

    The same data used for 3D printing can be used for CNC routing, in case that isn't obvious to you.

    And that 3d print can be used for 'lost material' casting as well. Well done, that is quite an impressive print. I can only do about 8x8x8 inches and even that takes several hours. Russ

    Default Update!

    Here's an update for those following this thread. I just received pics from the USS NJ Museum showing the original bell that I scanned and the replica that was printed full scale by IC3D in Ohio. The skilled craftsmen at the museum did an outstanding job painting and detailing the replica - even adding some marks/gouges and scratches to make it look authentic.

    Must make you feel good Brady
    Although surprised they had to "add" nicks and dings, as your scan probably had them in there perfectly already.
    Once again...Great Job!!

    Brady, Being a Navy Vet still involved in the history and with my Shipmates I can truely appreciate this on many levels. I have worked on pieces and replicas at the USS Albany exhibit (Visitors Center Albany New York).

    Again thanks !!

    Thanks Scott - yes, the scanner DID pick up the nicks etc, but I sculpted them out to make printing faster and more reliable.

    When you print at this scale, the size of the nozzle and filament being laid down, it can only resolve so much detail. It is just like 3D machining with a 1/2" ball vs an 1/8" one.
