Open R/C creator Daniel Norée launched OpenRailway project for 3D printed miniature trains:

…Daniel has recently branched out to another field of self-propelling toys for young and old: miniature trains. Aside from working on very cool 3D printable trains and railways, he has also launched an open-source community to accompany this new and exciting project: OpenRailway.

Currently Daniel is already working on a number of designs, the first of which is a 1:32 scale, a American Diesel, EMD SW1500.

…The drive for this surfaced a few months ago, when Daniel was approached by the organizers of Sweden’s largest hobby fair. They asked him to attend and show off the possibilities of 3D printing for hobbyists.
‘While I have 3d printed R/C cars, quads and other things, they were also interested in my model train stuff. And as my dad and I have built a model railway of our own, I naturally wanted to do something that involved trains as well.’ And thus the foundations for OpenRailway were laid.’ Daniel explained.

Working together with his friends at the Swedish 3D printing web store Creative Tools, which specialized in 3D printer parts and accessories, Daniel developed a small 3D printed railway and locomotives. ‘On top of that we got permission from model train manufacturer Jeco to test print one of their locomotives to show at the fair.’ ….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
