Use PLA not ABS.

you mean it costs more to print them than to buy them from the store?

Instructions

Print, remove support and play!

The model is adjusted to print well on my printer and it´s settings so it might not come out perfect on the first print.

Have fun!

Any idea how many tracks I can print per spool? Or if you have the weight of the track I can calculate it out. I would think this is more cost effective than paying 20 bucks for 20 or 24 tracks.

thanks for the model! Could you please mention in the instructions what material you've printed with? I believe that it might be of interest since ABS shrinks a little bit as compared to PLA.

Done!

Thanks for the heads up! =)

How in the world did you get these things together?! I printed 2 and cannot get them to click into place. I used a Dimension Uprint with great resolution.

Use PLA not ABS.

Hmm, sounds weird. They should fit perfectly especially considering the machine your using. You sure there´s not a scaling problem somewhere along the line? I´ve printed this on several different printers and they all come together just fine. Please let me know how it goes!

Ah - it does appear to be a scaling problem. Printed out as is and laid next to a real Lego track, it is slightly larger. Printed it out at .99% and it fit much better. Will try .98% soon as it still very slightly a little bigger.

Thanks!

20 years too late, but this appeals to my past frustration with never having enough of those damn tracks.

Ha ha.

I would request 2 mods for this item. 1 create or change it to the 4 stud version of this part found here http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=85976http://www.bricklink.com/catal... .

2 create a new curve piece for lego that makes a larger diameter curve, for higher speed trains. That would make the lego train community completely ecstatic.

Excellent use of a home 3D printer for making toys for your kids! :)
