    So, I finally printed something 10 months after acquiring an Elegoo Mars 3 resin printer. The first thing I printed was a generic span bolster for a 100-ton Micro Trains roller bearing truck to be used on Deluxe Innovations Maxi-III and Twin-Stack well cars. They were painted and installed by Henry Baez. Here are some pics to enjoy!

    Those look great. Any possibility of offering them for purchase? Also how did you get the original pins out without breaking the connectors? And what size screw did you use to replace them with. I would like to do something similar to my sets.

    Hello ntex, I can make as many of these as you need, but as far as how to get the car apart, i. e. removing the coupling pin, I have no experience with. I created these for a friend that wanted/needed to add the to his cars to fill in the gap between each well segment. He did all of the work.
