Printing a railroad wheel

Last article I used a free, online solid modeling program called Onshape to make a wheel like the one discussed by Mike Lafond and published in the Garden Railways Magazine, December 2018.

I am going to print out a wheel using my Robo3D R1+ using PLA (polylactic acid) as the filament.

In this article on 3D or three dimension printing, author Steven A. Berneberg writes, step-by-step, how to load and print a 3D railroad wheel for garden railroads.
