  1. Ok, scale. I'm getting tired of sizing figures in the slicer using a scale meter or a figure file & then printing a figure & it's either tiny (or a giant in 15mm) or giant when it suppose to be a human sized figure. What am I doing wrong?? Using the scale meter from thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3649454 I'll load up the figure I wanna slice. Next I'll load the ruler. I then size the figure down (or up, but mostly down as most files come out around 7 feet tall or 30mm (which is what most of the files are scaled at). Now this is where the problem apparently starts to happen. I use Z to drop the figures down to a size I'd like the figure to be (say a 5' 8" human). Support-slice-save to computer-copy to flash drive-print. I get the print out of the printer & it's tiny!! What am I doing wrong here? Should I just leave the figure as is & the print it out even thou the ruler says it'll be way over the size I want it to be. I use a mix of figures from various manfc but I mostly use Reaper & Wizkids figures(pre-p & Unpt lines). A good example of this is the female goblins from Artisan Guild I just got the other day. Loaded her into the slicer & she is over 6 feet tall!!!!! Ummm yah ok. I sized her down (again the Z axis) to 3 feet tall & now I'm afraid she'll come out even tinier then a female ranger that I sized to around 5' 5" & it just printed (or trashed). I've got 5 human bandits, 1 human professor & a elf rogue, along with that ranger that I need to print out before Monday & with so many scale failures, I'm not sure I'll get em done in time. Help!!!!!!
  2. Nice! I can see various weed patches popping out of those ruins + gives it a little life.
  3. A regular goat? "Dinner!!!" I will get my sling out & fire a stone at it. Sling: 14 + 4 = 18 (unless it's a demi-god of goats, then well we're screwed.............) Dmg: 2 + 2 = 4
  4. Strike one from the list. I just needed to go back to the original Photon S setting & then tweak it a bit. It's not as crisp as I'd like it to but hey it's printing minis that I need for next Monday.
  5. Hey! No time like the last few months of the pledge manager to add stuff. At least it's sooner then the last Bones KS (I add most of pledges a weekend before the closing date & right before ReaperCon). Anyways, just added: Power Up: Dragonslayers x1 Power Up: Rocky Brush Holder Option x1 Disapproving Hand Spell Effect x1 Valfuryx the Vile x1 Fire Giant Hellbringer x1 Goroloth x1 Storm Giant x1 Arakoth the Ancient x1 Encounter at Mandupar Pass x1 Encounter: Shadows of Ravenhome x1 Opton: Kaiju Chaos x1 Base Boss 1" Round RPG Bases x3 In addition to my existing pledge: Core Set Pirate Ship I'll add more later this month & next, of course.
  6. Yah, I leave prints in mine, overnight, all the time. Thanks to my job, I usually start a job in the evening & then it's waiting for me when I get home from work in the morning. As long as you don't expose the print to UV, it should be good to go for quite awhile.
  7. I don't know if it's the strangest, but years ago back in HS, I was with friends & we were at a intersection in town. We pull up & next to us was a old woman in a Civic or similar car. She had her arm out the door & her head laying on it, like she was dead or something. Light turned green & away she went.
  8. Decals - Yes It's probably the same size as those prepainted one in @gmvader's post. What they did was take unpainted but primed figures from that line & put them into this line.
  9. Update! After doing a through cleaning of the vat & oddly, I had some dried resin on the LCD (Must have been on the bottom of FEP as it's still in near mint condition. I strained the resin (again) & took a chance with one of the files I did with the default Photon S setting in Chitubox & it printed! I've re-did some files today using a setting I found on reddit (this one was actually had the S involved. Oddly, the spreadsheet is mentioned allot as a good starting point but ignore the high numbers!!). Also these files were also re-scaled using the miniature scaler I found yesterday. Sooooo much easier to do that step now. Hopefully, problems are solved for now.
  10. I totally forgot about that one. The only thing I've gotten from the ST Unpainted line is the original Enterprise. Hmmmm I may have to remedy that someday.
  11. A little bit of college, but I did picked up a job I utterly hated. I worked there 1 day, called the 2nd day told them I was sick & I was canned. Oddly, the next job I got is my current job, that's I've been at for close to 27 years now.
  12. Just remembered to download that new 28mm scale ruler thing I found on thingiverse last night. Well, I know I'll never print out Gargantuan based creatures on my Photon S.
  13. Currently, get my resin printer back to actually printing things again, vs having a empty plate after it's done with a print!! Once again, get the Ender 3 going again, so I can make use of that printer as well. Hopefully, I'll throw in a some miniature painting as well. After the 12th of the month, I have 2 of 3 weeks off, so hey, let's do something!!!
  14. Yah I sliced some bandit minis the other day. I was able to get 5 minis on there. I couple were in the wide, weapons out stances too. I just went 2 of those on one side & 3 slimmer stances on the other. All for naught thou, as my print from yesterday - last night is not on the plate! The bandits were set with the same settings as that print was. Oddly, again, @TaleSpinner's settings. My printer must not like em or something. What I need to do is go back to the settings I had before when it running but not getting clear prints & see if that will cure my problems. At this point, I don't mind the minis not being razor sharp, I just need them for the table.
  15. Just get these, next time someone complains.
  16. Having had roof problems & having had a metal roof put on over the existing roof I totally under this one. It was cheaper then re-shingling & well worth it but yah at the time, we were like ughhh. Thank goodness for great parents!! So is Friday, the recognized fed day for "regular" workers? Co-worker & I weren't sure which one it was (Fri or Mon). If Friday that means I won't be getting my orders till Monday....hmmmmm
  17. Ordered! 100% of the proceeds benefit Direct Relief, who are doing important work globally to help the medical community receive the protective equipment they need in order to save lives. You also get the song "Atlas Falls" as a mp3.( I can stream that one on Google Music but I don't mind).
  18. Not anymore. Reaper use to offer their entire catalog that was still available for them (no expired licensed stuff for example). It became too time/$$ consuming for them to keep it going. About the only way you can do it now is when ReaperCon comes around & you make the trip to Denton, Texas.
  19. Woah!!! I stumbled onto this one last night. I will admit, I'm not one to get all motivated by motivation speakers or causes but this one hits me a little. I'm a Shinedown fan, so yah, I need to get the shirt. Shinedown "Atlas Falls" https://youtu.be/YiVkAvm-BVE These lyrics are so powerful: We'll never make it outsideLest we unlock the past and releaseThe future that we've left to die
  20. This is what Sid Scale is from Printable Scenery, but he's 30mm. You can get him in other scales, but for my purposes 30 is the closest number. Granted that fits with most stl minis I've noticed + doesn't look too bad when compared to Reaper minis as well. I do use prepainted & Nolzur's which are closer to 28mm. I found this one the other day (this is the one that chitubox says is too small every time I insert onto the build plate): https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2646818 Oddly, it was the only one that came up last I searched for a 28mm ruler on thingiverse. Tonight I came across this one, I need to download it tomorrow when I get home from work (& on the main computer) & see how it works. I like the base sizes on the bottom of it. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3649454 I think that halfling is cursed. Came downstairs after sleeping for a couple hours & the job was done but no halfling?? I drained the vat & there he was! He was a "Flat"ling!! Scrapped him off & cleaned up the vat & re-poured a new batch of resin & decided to print something else. Hopefully, this mini doesn't end up the same. Also, I think I saved the printoff of the Doc, but I may have tossed it after seeing if he details had turned out better (minus the funky no leg spur of course). I'll take a pic of it if I still have it & post it tomorrow.
  21. Yah, my wife & I went to a Chinese food place over in anther town on Monday. If was soooo good!! I think the last time we were there was probably in March or so. Plus with her having Mondays off & yesterday my last "free" Monday before I go back to gaming (I'll need to sleep before the game), it was a good way for us to spend the afternoon together. Well, the bunny's hole has been covered. Her tunneling was getting a bit much plus is was starting to go the way where hadn't put the wire up. In the end we filled the hole & covered the area in rocks. She'll dig again, I'm sure. I mean, if she didn't, she wouldn't be Thumper the bunny.
  22. NIce! I thought with all the sharp points it was one of those bugs? this month's offering was riding.
  23. & a Peter Jackson cameo too.
