Hi Joseph,

Many thanks! I was going to pivot the inner track 180 on my next test ! So cheers for confirming that,
Much obliged again for your help, I am pretty much down to the running gear and I am done !
Bloody marvellous it is !

Hi again !
Firstly, thank you for uploading your Maus, and designing it in the first place !
I have printed a fair bit of it now, again, thank you..but it is the tracks which are bugging me..can i ask in what orientation, quality and infill you recommend ?
Many thank

Jeff

Hey Jeff,

I printed the tracks at 0.01" layer height and 100% infill (there's not much material to fill anyway). The outer tracks and big track I printed in the orientation the stl is naturally in. The inner track I flipped 180° around the x-axis so that it would leave the guides pointing into the air. I printed without support and set the printer to go slower than I normally have it.

Remember to have them in the proper scale w/ the rest of the tank.

Hope this helps!
