Re: What would you do in this area

No Prison No church.

Maybe water tank tower and brick office (run down) and scrub land.

Re: What would you do in this area

Prison. never seen that before good idea but not for me and did they have razor wire in the 60's. Like the idea of rundown house and scrub land. (I do like this idea). Also friend said Gasometer there is one in Crewe still but never been inflated for decades. Are there any good British (Crewe) style...

What would you do in this area

I just don't think those are right (maybe) any idea's....Not a church. Not Stonehenge. Its basically a triangle 300mm x ...

Re: 3d printers and printing

I have one Hictop (prusa) filament printer its good, useful and I learnt a lot... But if I was buying one now would move to the Resin Printer type.

Re: Speed and acceleration problem

My 08s have a CV5 value of about 40 (from 250 steps) CV6 at 20, CV's 3 and 4 at about 30. That replicates the smooth and steady, never very fast performance of reality. In many yards they never did more than jog along at 7 or 8 mph. I put these numbers in and it does 6 inches in 26.22 seconds that'...
