The 21st Century is truly the era of technological advancement. Everyday, 3D printing mesmerizes us with its ability to create all sorts of 3D printed models. 3D printing is able to transform a three-dimensional digital model into a physical object that is present in the real world. A good example of 3D models is miniature trains!

Printing 3D train models is a fun hobby for a lot of people. With resin 3D printing, you can produce a large quantity of train models, parts, and pieces in a single print. You can also use resin 3D printing to create intricate and creative designs that have never been seen before.

As part of a 3D printing project, you can create strong yet lightweight train models. All the models in this blog post have been designed and printed by artists Kaustav Chatterjee and Jerry Bunyan! They explained that the kind of detail that the Sonic Mighty 4K is capable of printing out is “mind-blowing.” “The results are so small and precise that we could've never imagined them to be made, like a 1:160 scale bicycle. You could even see the weaving of the basket on it,” they noted.

What’s Resin 3D Printing All About?

But first, let's find out a bit about resin 3D printing. Did you know that there are multiple resin 3D printing techniques out there? Please click here to find out more.

First, you need the concept of a train model in order to create a 3D printed version of it. Take a look at the train in the photo above. The designers Kaustav Chatterjee and Jerry Bunyan created a 3D printed miniature of an actual train in India.

After the train coaches were created, it was then combined with other 3D printed train parts and the locomotives of the train engines, to complete the entire 3D printed project. With the Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4K, and Aqua-Gray 4K resin, this concept easily came to life! The Sonic Mighty 4K let’s you print out even the tiny details on this train model, making it much more precise than ever before.

Doesn’t it look just incredible?

After creating a 3D printed train, it’s time to build the carriage!

The train carriage is responsible for carrying the passengers to their destination. The realistic texture of the carriage makes it a perfect replica of the original train carriage. With digital drawings, the artists were able to create realistic 3D models that match the original trains exactly. The models were precisely created using the magical combination of Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4K with the Aqua-Gray 4K Resin.

The above picture shows the complete 3D printed models of the train. Doesn’t it look lifelike? We now bring all the different 3D printed train parts together to form an entire railroad card. The texturized details alone make it worth looking at. These beautiful models were created with the help of the Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4K and Aqua-Gray 4K resin.

Creating 3D printed models is the way to go for both businesses and individuals as 3D printing can make the production process much more easy and efficient as you can operate using 3D printers anywhere you like.

You can create prototypes which can then easily be printed out with the help of resin 3D printing.
