Hello Leland. It's basically HO 1:87 scale. BUT...I designed it to fit the model cement truck, and from one picture from Google Images. So, I would admit that nothing is to actual scale, and many parts are exaggerated so they will show up when printed. The whole thing is imagineered, just for fun.

can i ask what scale is this? thank you :) nice job by the way

I can honestly say that I have no idea how concrete is made. I designed my factory from a single image on Google and just used my imagination for the rest. Thanks for the nice comment. Here is a link for the truck.

I work in the field of concrete. This model struck and I decided to print it! Of course, not all plants look the way it is displayed by the model, but it’s awesome! :) Could you share a link to the truck, which is presented in the photo?

Very good. compliment.

I'm very new at this and always learning. I understand better the need to fillets to support overhangs. The concrete factory was only my 2nd time at drawing something and printing it from scratch. I learned a lot from it.

Love the design and challenge! So far so good. Only one suggestion to make them more 3D printer friendly is to add some .5-1mm fillets to some of the overhangs so we aren't trying to print on air and less supports are needed.

love ur work nearly finished concrete factory

Thank You! Be sure to post pictures so everyone can see how it turns out.

Amazing job!

I'm sorry, but I don't speak French. Could you have someone help you translate your request? Thanks.

merci pour cette super centrale a béton travail remarquable vous serait il possible de me fournir le plant d assemblage merci d avance
j ai aussi pris le garage super termine la centrale bientôt et malheureusement le Scale Distribution Center trop grosse impression d un seule morceau serait il possible de l avoir en découpe et encore merci pour ce partage DANY

Neat batch plant (I should know, I draw them for a living, all I know is this isn't based on of our current ones though)! I might have to print one for family that likes HO scale.

Thanks. Like I said, I imagineered it as I have no idea how they work except that they mix cement and gravel.

Fun though. I'm finishing up a bungalow house and garage and should be posting them this week.

looks great ! thank you for creating this !

Thanks! Your comment makes it all worthwhile. Kim

keep up the good work, not a train guy but your thing are eye catching
