  1. Some updated shots:

    The completed stormtrooper head, now I need to print the base:(


    Had to cut a channel to make the tool holder fit (Neptune's apparently have a different top rail then ender's) but it works!


    Yoda is now a permeant resident on the extruder knob:


    I guess I should have either printed less at one time, made them bigger or saved them for the resin printer:(


    And now printing my biggest effort yet, a true stress test for the printer (Update, I am getting some lifting on the edges, which honestly doesn't surprise me, I am going to let it run, and see how it goes). This is the dice tower from Mia Kay's scatter terrain kickstarter:

  2. Okay, so the resin printers are still not set up on the garage, but I did manage to acquire a Elegoo Neptune 2 printer, and I am having a blast. I will try and document my adventures here, and give any insight I can as I go along.


    So, first here are some pictures of the neptune 2 after set-up. The manual leaves a lot to bw desired as far as set-up, but elegoo has an excellent video showing how to build the neptune 2, so it was very easy to put together. I was doing the build leisurely, so it probably took an hour and a half:)20210521_012316.thumb.jpg.cc166709108819b5666789d2f81f2400.jpg


    Next is elegoo's test model (honestly, I would have preferred some kind of chess piece):


    I needed a cover for a PSP missing a battery door:


    And of course I needed a Yoda extruder knob:)


    And a tool holder (I need to modify it a bit to get it to go on properly, pictures completed incoming)


    And starting to test print Mia Kay's scatter terrain:


    and finally a belated birthday present for my 12 year old:


    I cannot wait to set up my resin printers, but for now I am having a blast with the Neptune 2!

  3. So I have pruned my list of Patreons down to 4, and will probably stay that way:


    Loot Studios (Not on Patreon but still a monthly subscription. Wish they had a merchant level)

    Clay Cyanide (probably lock in my merchant level this may)

    Epic Miniatures (Will probably lock in merchant level now and again, but I just straight up love their stuff)

    One Gold Piece (hey, it's a buck, and it is always fun stuff)


    If things don't get better, I may not be doing any at all, but that's a story for another time.

    I got in for April because of the busts and other models, but I need to start cutting back and concentrate on ones I can print and sell, I have a boatload of stl's now:)

    Thanks to my goober co-worker being out on disability again, I got another round of Patreon funding overtime this weekend.  I like enough of the figures here to pledge, though the elven eyebrows aren't my favorite style.




    So you are saying they should be called "The elves of the High Brow" :)

  6. I don't like kicking a dead horse...BUT...Yah I am kicking that dead horse:)


    I think everyone has been mentioning the need for a dedicated PR guy (since post Bone THREE???) to handle JUST this, it is too important to be Ron or Jon wearing other hats AND try to be PR guys. Come on, you are a big enough company now, you need a PR guy.  Dragon size ,Frost giant umm size, and UK/Brexit issues could have been resolved better if someone just did PR. Especially now with all their communication streams, PVE and other events, you guys are killing poor Jon.

  7. My focus lately has been trying to find kickstarters/patreons I either:

    1) Like enough to pledge

    2) Like enough to not only pledge but have the rights to resell if they offer a reasonable price.


    Unfortunately this project has neither. I do not like it enough to pledge (In my wife's words "it's too creepy), and I just do not think it would have enough appeal for resale, especially at the commercial tier cost. I got rapunzel from stl sampler creator, that's good enough for me haha.

    I suspect that this will last only as long as it takes for a certain mouse themed company to hear of it and type up the C&D letter.

    Like someone should have with Kimba the white lion:) Honestly, these are all characters from old tales, unless they could show undeniably that it is THEIR take on the figures, it would be hard. Now if it were toy story, that would be different. Plus, this is more along the lines of satire, so it may fall under that:)

    Yeah, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, in particular, are too similar to that company’s IP.

    I thought it would be years before I bought a 3D printer, but my wife recently became interested in getting one, too. So we agreed to get one as an anniversary gift to ourselves. :B):


    Our Mars 2 Pro came last week. These were the first minis I printed with it (all from Capritor Miniatures). Done in water washable resin.




    Those look great. Can you share your settings? I have a 500 and 1000 gram bottle of washable resin (grey and blue), and I always like to try what works for people:)
