 I know - I was just teasing.  I WOULD like to find a way to make the biggest T Rex Skull possible.  What's the biggest reasonable 3D printer you can buy?  Reasonable.

Shapeways seems to be the big name in contracting out printing services.

I printed out a windmill today. It went together really nicely, I'll paint it up and then take some pictures. So far I've got 3 houses, some fences and the windmill. I'm going to try printing a church and a different variety of fence next. The church will be interesting because I'll need to modify the model myself to get it to fit on the printer. So far I've just been printing other people's models.

Eventually I'll post pictures of everything.

that is fantastic, any idea what your cost is for each building?

Maybe $1-$5. $20 U.S. for a roll of filament and I'm still on the first one. I think this first roll will pay for the printer in saved $.

That's very cool indeed. How savvy does one need to be to operate one of these units? How much would your level of printer cost?

Mine was $200 U.S. Plus $60 shipping and $20 for a roll of filament. It is very easy to run. Just pick what you want, load it up and hit start.

Ok, so that's the price of 4-5 Battlefront buildings. That's way cheaper than I thought.

I think I'm going to do my homework on one of these.

Made a new terrain square.  Well to be honest, it was an old terrain square but I've updated it with new buildings.



My printer is down and out for a bit, something broke and I'm waiting on a part.  Shouldn't be too long but it's annoying.
