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.

      Hi Everyone,
      I wanted to share a new campaign that I've just started:

      Featuring a snap-fit modular design, MAV3RICK is a 3D printable kit that can be configured into a number of different vehicle variants:

      Take a look, I'd love to know what you think.
      Thanks for looking!

      I found this model somewhere on the internet, alone and uncredited, so I have no idea who made it or what it is or anything. People have suggested that it's a Kirby, whatever that is, with a human face pasted on.

      I like it, and I'll print about a dozen of them, and make up some stats to use them in my D&D campaign in some way. I'm leaning towards some kind of waddling tar-baby critter, but we shall see.

      The original model was only about 1.5mm tall, so I've rescaled it by 1500% to roughly 20mm.

      Impact Miniatures ran a Kickstarter earlier in the year and this Mocking Beast aka Mimic was one of the offerings.  My wife enjoys playing D&D Online with me (she's good at the puzzles and spotting treasure) and finds the mimics amusing, so I painted this for her birthday.

      Hard to tell it was 3d printed, other than very fine lines on long oblique items like the sides of the tongue.  All in all it was a blast to paint.  Based it on a Litko 3mm plywood 25mm round and painted the stonework on.

      I made these primitive runestones in Blender and printed them on my little 3d printer. I thought the first one was a bit boring, so I added a bunch of skulls around the base of the second for that cannibal-headhunter vibe.

      They're on Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3010064

      The miniature is from Reaper, the figure I use to represent my oldest (surviving) D&D character from back in 1981, Smirnoff the Huge and Ugly. There was one earlier character from my very first roleplaying session, but I don't even remember his name — he was blown to smithereens in that same session by being too close to an overly-curious halfling thief.

      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/
