What program are you using?  It looks almost like Creo.


Fusion 360.  It's free for hobbyists using it non-commercially and for students.

Still have a lot more detailing work to do on the main hull, but the first pieces are on the printer now! This is the barrel and gun mount.  Next up will be the two turret halves and the hatch.

All of the turret and hatch pieces printed. i see some small changes that need to be made, and I learned some things, but overall, I'm really pleased with this part of it.  

Now I just have to finish the hull.

Haven't had much of a chance to work on this in the last 8 days. Other projects jumped ahead of them, as well as work and kids. Finally getting back to it tonight. 


First up, the tank with the side sponsons.  I'm not even going to bother to print both the side sponsons out at this point, as they're not my intended build. I merely wanted them for the upload to Thingiverse:


Here it is with the gun rails. I'm guessing these are going to be tricky to print, but we'll see how it goes.  Rottweiler_wGunRails_121617.thumb.png.db761d9195316a7816934aecdbfcfd85.png

Closing in on finishing the design.  Just have the rear hatch to design, and other than tweaks, I should be done. Converting a bunch of the parts to stl now so i can begin printing them.

Finally getting back to this, but probably won't get it finished before I have to leave on a week long business trip.


Side sponsons and gun rail options printed. I will be using the rail option.



I'm cutting the sniper gun off the figure and mounting it to the rail:



The front hull is on the printer. I'm just over an hour in to what is supposed to be a 9 hour print.

This has me trying to remember the names of some old, 3d, wireframe games from my Apple II days.   


Elite!, obviously but what was the name of that tank game.  Laser something?


Are you thinking of BattleZone, the 1980's version by chance? 


Also, I love the look of this tank!

after a very busy January, I got the rear hull to a point I could export an stl.  It will go on the printer tomorrow.   It's not 100% finished, but done enough for now.

      Back in December, when I finally had some time and motivation to get back to painting, I decided I'd really quickly do up some IMEF marines.  Just table top, didn't even clean up mold lines or anything.
      Well, do primarily to being easily distracted by......what was I saying?  Oh yes, easily  distracted by other bright shiny objects, it took me over 4 months to get them all done.  Here is a quick group shot.

      I still don't have any real futuristic urban terrain to use to shoot these guys.
      Reggie and Torch still need to be sealed, but looking at the forecast it could be June before it stops raining.
      The rest have already seen combat as some mercs for hire last week in Savage Rifts.
      WIP ( with many individual shots) is here:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78476-jasper-gets-back-to-painting-with-some-imef-marines/

      We currently have a second Kickstarter live at the moment, entitled Starship II - 3D printable OpenLOCK-compatible Deck Plans. The campaign is already over 1300% financed, and we are working on the 8th Stretch Goal.
      If you have a 3D printer, these tiles can really bring your tabletop experience to life, with a strong influences from the designs of Rob Cobb and Kazutaka Miyatake.

      got a 3D printer, or access to a friends, or one at a library or university this might be for you


      With this project I will be bring you a collection of Sci-Fi Vehicles and Artillery to be used in whatever tabletop game you choose. With more vehicles being added as stretch goals are hit. All sculpts will be supplied as 3d printable STL files.

      Why am I doing this project?

      My passions are sculpting, 3d printing and wargames. I wanted to be able to field the sort of armys I wanted without breaking the bank. So I started sculpting the sort of models I needed. After sculpting quite a range I decided to bring it to Kickstarter to enable me to further expand the range.

      I have a Patreon page were I produce sculpts for my backers each month as well as a website where you can see some of my past work. So you can be sure I have the knowledge required to deliver printable files, and can be trusted to deliver them in a time frame.

      Patreon: www.patreon.com/Duncan_shadow

      Website: https://www.duncanshadow.com

      Scale: The default scale of my files is 32mm / 28mm Heroic, but Being 3D Files they can be scaled up or down.

      What do I get?

      As soon as the kickstarter has ended and funds cleared you will receive 3d Printable files in a stl format. You can print as many of the figures on your home printer as you want, or send the files to a external printer to do the printing for you.

      The kickstarter includes 7 vehicles 1 walker and 2 artillery pieces, with extra weapon options, (see below) to start with, more sculpts being unlocked in the near future.

      Main battle tank comes with multiple turret, hull and sponson guns.

      TERMS AND CONDITIONS. When you contribute to This campaign, you will receive STL files for the models as per your selected pledge. The pledge files will be delivered May 2018, with successful stretch goals arriving later. You can print these files for your personal use, but you may not sell the printed items for profit or distribute the digital 3D models/files to other parties.

      So @Zink's thread here...
      ...inspired me to try my hand at creating an Elven catapult with Fusion 360 and my printer.  Rather than hijack his thread anymore, it's time to create its own thread.
      I'm not anywhere near done, but I went ahead and printed out a prototype of my design so I could get a better feel for things and tweak it. Here is Sir ForScale checking over the construction so far:

      I'm glad I decided to print out a prototype now.  I found that my tolerances are too tight for some of the assembly, and that I need to fix how the center piece goes in.
      I could probably merge it all into one piece, and print it as a single piece, or maybe two, but I am trying to keep the pieces fairly flat so that it can be mailed in an envelope.
      Trying to figure out what elven looking wheels without spokes would look like, as I think spoked wheels might be too delicate to print at this size
