  1. Just got back my Chaos Marauder sculpt from Shapeways. The primer is showing the print lines that were hidden when it was frosted. To be honest though, i can't really see that much wrong with it with my eyes, only when zoomed in. I've included the original sculpt for comparison

    Golem Print Arrived Today!

    Hello all, i just thought i'd post this up as i was excited to see it arrive in the post today: Mr Stitches the Golem and Cat the Cat at a total of 50mm It's exactly as it arrived out of the box from Shapeways (in the extreme detail material)and cost a total of, i think $35 inc. shipping. I haven't cleaned it or anything and i realise that it's not the easiest to see but i just wanted to pop it up here anyway!
  3. The grand folks at Firaxis games produced a winner for me. They updated the classic XCOM game and produced XCOM 2. I thought it stayed true to the feel of the original game while adding great looks and good game play. The plot is Aliens have invaded Earth and are trying to take over. You have to stop them and save the human race. In the second release you failed and your team are now a rag tag bunch of terrorists trying to bring down the one world government. One of the nice things they did was to throw the game open to modding. If you purchased the game on steam you can also subscribe to the XCOM to developer package free of charge. They make the tools and ALL the assets from the game available. I wanted to see if I could extract game assets and print some mementos for my self. I found out you definitely can extract the assets. The only issue with printing them is they're optimized for visual presentation and not for 3d printing. I started with something simple and edited it for FDM printing. I present the Alien overlord statue! (You show your love for your overlords by blowing it up in the introductory trailing mission) FDM has issues with "overhangs". You can't draw molten plastic with nothing under it. Gravity pulls the molten plastic and it doesn't just hang in mid air. Darn gravity! I split the statue in half so there are minimal overhangs. The arms are built up vertically from the bottom to the top: Each mirrored half was printed: Then a test fitting: Slapped on some one part bondo (for fixing scratches on cars): a bunch of sanding: Then some spray painted gold paint: A 3d printed base: And it's done! I'm happy with the result. The surface texture is still not wonderful. I'm still experimenting with methods to improve that. It's supposed to look like this: Have a great weekend, See you at ReaperCon! Jay
  4. After getting a 3d printer I was thinking about how to organize my painting area a little better. Here's my list of features: A place to put the bottles of reaper paints. I have the colors being used for the figure without hunting for them. A place to put brushes while not actively painting. A well for a little water for brush cleaning. A small wet palette area. My big wet palette collects dirt, flecks of dried paint, cat hair, etc. If the wet palette is small I will have to change it often. It won't have time to grow mold or collect dirt This is the result: The larger well on the left serves as the wet palette. The smaller one of the right is for water. I'll bring it along to Reapercon if anyone wants a close look. Later! Jay

    AMC Robot 3D print

    I finally pulled the trigger on a 3D printer. Although it's not related the Reaper my wife thought I should post it here too. I sculpted, printed, assembled, and painted the robot from one of the AMC movie PSA's. If you're interested you can read more about the project here: http://www.3dprintingforum.org/threads/2352-The-AMC-robot?p=7145#post7145 I've made a base and a paint station for myself as well. Since they're a lot more Reaper/Miniature related I'll definitely be posting those shortly.
