|Model Railroad and Traction 3D-Printed Kits|
This range is IHP's attempt at producing usable retail hobby products using 3D printing and rapid prototyping. Using this new specific parts-manufacturing technology, it is now possible to offer a product to the public without benefit of traditional molding tooling or patternmaking methods. Only a knowledge of computer-aided design (CAD) drawing is needed. The parts produced by 3D printing (sometimes called 'rapid prototyping') have reached the point where the quality is nearly as good as parts produced in steel or rubber moulds for traditional parts production. While this process is not ready for mass production of parts like the methods using traditional toolmaking, it is excellent for one or two parts at a time for niche markets or purposes where mass production is not needed.
We have a large range of products available as 3D-printed parts in many different scales. Some are available to supplement our old resin kits, others are available as retrofit or aftermarket parts for other models. Take a look and see if there's anything you can use!
