Re: 3D Printing

I just want a few Saab 2000's in an all white livery. That's so I can customize them...

Re: 3D Printing

3d printing is a pretty neat technology. Attached are a few pics of the a320/319 I've worked on. The pictures show the model in the unpolished state, then polished, then with a test decal. I think they look pretty good and close to an a320.

One a319 is painted in a grey primer, with another coat of white.

I will have to look into this, and will post when I find such site.

Or you want to do few different designs, to be sold as sets for designated aiports.

Several things:
1) I am very much in favor of generic jetways. This way they can be customized with some decals to look like glass jetways:

or just paint them to a custom color:


You can also make them with a "ribbed" texture, just like Herpa's generic jetways:


2) I guess if you will make an A380-capable jetway, it would only make sense if you could offer it as a set, so that it will not look too different from the other two:


3) The current problem with Herpa's jetways is that they are of a fixed length and cannot be adjusted. It is quite unrealistic, not to mention hard to position on an airport layout. You have to build around its dimensions. In real life, you see jetways in all sorts of lengths to accommodate to the position of the doors it is servicing, relative to its attachment to the terminal:


The other thing that fixed-length jetways cannot do is to enable "double spot" parking for two small planes where only one jumbo can normally fit. Tokyo's Haneda international terminal has two double-spot parking to its left:



Lastly, the other GSEs that do not exist in the Herpa world, which I think is very important are the following:

1) A380 catering equipment:


2) mobile gates


3) airstairs that are adjustable:

Looking forward to all your projects! And I hope you keep listening to us!

Re: 3D Printing

The beauty of 3D Printing is that we can customise any model to suit everyone so for example if we make an A380 jetway say 50mm long but someone wants one 68mm long we just update the file and print that. Making real world adjustable printed parts is possible but we prefer to make bespoke models of fixed sizes with no moving parts as its quicker for us and cheaper for you.

Re: 3D Printing

Also if some people want one a different height off the ground than our standard model just ask and we can update the original file.

Doing the jetways is very easy to make the adjustable in way of their high and lenght. The jetways suppose to be done from two pieces, one smaller that the other one just of thickness of the walls. The bigger and the thinner empty inside to keep light weight of them and better stability. Also "gears" could be done same way: two parts one tube or two tubes mounted undeneath of the jetway and one rod or frame with two rods with wheels.
Take a closer look what did Herpa and just do it better.

People will use different size of the planes at the gates and ordering new set of jetways, because they just change B737 to B777 at the gate make not sence, or the beg of jetways will have the price of beg of peanuts.

Exactly what I had in mind!

I had been scouting around for plastruct square cylinders but none of them match the dimensions of the current Herpa jetways. You only need to telescope two different sizes and presto, you have adjustable jetways!

What are the size of the square cylinders you need? We could model them and make them available to you in whatever size or length you need.

Re: 3D Printing

I will be away until Monday everyone so don't worry if I don't answer your queries before then. My guys are still working on the models in the meantime and hope to have some great images to show you all on Monday.
