    I use a resin printer for the modelling, and a filament printer for making jigs and tooling etc….. I have a Mars 2 Pro, which is elderly by now, but produces extraordinary work. The body of the 0-14 loco is entirely printed, even with lamp brackets in situ.

    I use Designspark Mechanical from RS for the drawing side, which has a free version – long may that continue…

    I find that home 3D printing can certainly match commercial standards aesthetically,  although not fully in  materials, and is a wonderful ‘extra’ tool in our armoury. I can draw and print stuff to a greater accuracy than I can any other way. I hope it never replaces traditional building, but it certainly complements it.
