    So which is it now, "ambient temp" or putting things in the freezer?
    Or are you asking if he's a masochist working outside in freezing temps?

    Seems like I've found your favourite toy.

    Just as a point of clarity, Nylon is already below Tg at room temp so sticking it in a consumer freezer is probably not going to change anything. You would need a - 80 C lab freezer or liquid nitrogen to reach the cold induced ductile/brittle transition.

    I had a similar break with one of the models I got from another company. Pretty annoying, especially since I had already started painting, but at least it was a really clean snap and fit back together almost seamlessly.

    Why do you keep going after a mod asking questions to others like it was a personal attack to you?

    His tendency to keep moving the goalposts and general dishonesty amuse me. Especially when he has no idea what he's talking about.

    Also, he's no mod, he barely mods at all here, he throws red text from time to time and that's it. That's assuming he's not drive by shitposting himself.

    That looks painful for me what happened with bear’s leg...
    It doesn’t give me trust in this material. That is sorry.

    It's the perfect occasion to sculpt a bear trap there!

    Tin has increased in cost by 10% so far this year. It’s nearly doubled in the last year. 30% more RRP for a Szalamandra is not an unreasonable amount in this context.
    All this has been explained several times by CB and other posters.
    Stop shitposting and fuck off.

    I bet a user can straight up tell another user to fuck off and still keep posting on this "moderated" Forum.

    Thanks, I had put some test models to the freezer (a regular household freezer nothing close to the range of a lab freezer) and I had the impression the material was for a short time more rigid and easier to scrape, I suppose I tricked myself in believing that.

    Another thing I wanted to ask is, I found that scraping the moldlines in two directly opposite directions has better results than scraping just one direction especially for the small filament that may cling at the end, is this a good advice to give structurally speaking or the extra effort of going both directions gives this result?

    Even if I did (and I didn't, but you can keep hating), this only proves my point.

    Oh my gosh this needs to stop now please, I really dont need to be trawling through another dozen pages of evidence of he said she said... I come to this site to get away from politics and negativity towards others.

    Regarding the snapped leg, ouch, feels bad. Hope the clean break makes it easy to fix for you, all reports on this welcome for future reference please :)

    So far a few intentional breaks I have done, one accidental, and one from "wear and tear" have been glued back with no issue.

    I'm actually not certain on this, but I think it may make sense that two directions is better than one. Nylon is inherently abrasion resistant, so scraping in two opposite directions may have the benefit of creating more localized stress as the mold line is deformed first in one direction than another.

    You may have come to the wrong place, I came back here for much the same reason…

    The break only looks bad but it’s clean and I think @fari said it was repaired quite well. We’d appreciate pics of the repair if possible!
