Hello Fabrice and Stephen
The problem is to provide a Video from the Wisent - I do not have it and in the winter - all is hard frozen.
So we must wait until spring. But thank´s for your Kind words.
All the best
Frank

I'm very impressed with the 3D printed parts.

You're getting a very smooth surface finish.

What filament and layer height are you using ?

Adrian.

Hello Adrian
I use a Zortrax M200. So I am working with Zortrax filament. It is ABS and the layer height is 0,14 or 0,19 mm when I print only vertical parts. The minimum layer height is 0,09 mm.

Hello at all
At first: Thank you to Stephen for the helpful pictures.

Well when I start the design I see a gap between my reference models from Taymia and the Centurion. So I visited the Full Museum with a Centurion. The result was that the new gearbox covers are a little bit longer. In the end of all the gap between the last crossbeam to the turret is more realistic (smaller) and all is nearly to my measurement from Full.
So here my pictures.

Beautiful work Frank. I love 3D printed parts as enhancements to these tanks. Those are some very complex grates. Very nice work.
Best regards,
Bob
