  • New printer

    Picked up an Ender 3 Pro recently to supplement my Monoprice which is a bit small. Getting to know the printer and have been running some parts for the track. $200 well spent!! I run on Scaley Sport so always need these! So much stronger than original.

    Yep, those clips are helpful..... they hold a retaining wall on my track too.

      The clip as downloaded did not fit the Scalextric track so I simply grafted it to the standard guard rail clip I drew up. Printed up a few and they were way to tall for my liking. I ened up shortening them by 10mm and they are now just a smidge taller than the stock guard rails. I am planning on doing a version that would include ability to add fence post as well.

        Yup, I used the screen cap which is what they were made for....super easy and did the whole carousel turn in one piece....plus great advertising space.
        You might take a look at Mr Flippant's catch fencing too.....it's easy and quite accomodating. They are up on Thingiverse as well.

          I have downloaded his wall and fence files but was not keen on the print time for them so went this route instead. I may be using the fence and post though as a starting point for my own clips.

            Are they printed in PLA?

              I printed them in PLA+ at 20% infill with 3 walls. Solid where they need to be and strong as hell. So far so good!

                I used the blue because it was what was in the printer. Does not bother me at the moment but nothing a quick shot of rustoleum wont cure if it does.
