3D Printer

Post  nathanr on Wed Jul 13, 2016 9:39 am

So, a buddy just bought himself a 3D printer. I don't think it's got the resolution to make minis that look good but it could definitely do terrain. I've found a few sites that have 3D-printable buildings and terrain that look pretty good. Here's the best one that I've found:

I'm thinking of getting some of the flames of war buildings once they are available. If anyone else is interested I'll talk to him about how much he wants to charge for prints.

Oh cmon Nathan, Your a big CAD guy, why dont YOU just make the programs Razz Now my question, does it print colors ? I would love terrain, and even more so if I could be lazy and not have to paint it.

No, this is just a single color printer. I think he has clear filament at the moment.

OH MY FUCKING GOD. its been 5 days and i dont have any fucking terrain yet. You are soooo getting a negative yelp review lol. anyways so i got impatient and ordered my OWN 3-d PRINTER! Very Happy:D:D

But seriously i did, prints in Resin and Plastic (grabbed spools of both) only going to print in Black, Grey and Brown to start (easy for stone and wood) and i can make 4"x4"x5" stuff. We will see when it shows up. I understand that 4" isnt that much (thats what she said) but i'm hoping if i want anything larger i can just connect a bunch of the pieces with glue or something. Will keep you gents posted. And Don, Carson, Nathan... Andre... Dom... and any other "non gents" i missed Wink

sure, e-mail me the files and I'll see if he's got it dialed in yet. he was printing some parts for upgrading the printer and he's got a bunch of other upgrades ordered so perhaps we should wait for all that to get here and installed before trying to print tanks. I know he was having issues with really thin parts so hopefully these things will get fixed in the next little bit.

@Sean: That's cool, let me know when you're up and running. My coworker's printable area is 8"x8" so if any bigger things are needed he can probably manage it.

files sent. Its a Hotchkiss H35 so about 1/3 the size of a sherman and the guns short so no thin parts to speak of. He could probably change the oriention of the hull to make printing easier.

Good, i dont think 4x4x5 will be quite big enough. But i've been looking at and reading reviews on this printer for about a year now. Finally went on sale lol.
