  1. So this is another support problem I'm having When I printed this guy his hull came out very nice but the legs were encased in supports carbonite style. Should I remove the legs to print separately?
  2. The only downside I see is that the wrist will probably be exposed in the final model. Maybe I could split it into two prints cut at the wrist then glue them together. I guess supports are a bit of mystery to me since sometimes they pull away easily and reveal top notch detail behind them, and other times I end up damaging a model trying to even remove them.
  3. So I'd like to print this hand for a dread claw (tm) conversion I'm doing for a friend, but am unsure how to handle the support issue. When I did a scaled down test print the volume between the base and the palm was full of support that wasn't easy to remove. I fixed that by clipping the hand off the base after which the support structure surprisingly easily. The full sized print is going to take a while so I'd like a bit of advice. Some ideas that occur to me: 1) Just print on the base then clip the hand off as before 2) Remove the base bef
  4. Yeah, it even had the file I was testing under "open recent". So if I'm thinking about getting a second bed should I just look for another glass bed like the CR-6 came with or should I look more into the spring steel magnetic stuff?
  5. Apparently the new version of the Creality Slicer wants me to learn Portuguese and also crashes every time I "eject" the SD card. Guess it's time to check out Cura.
  6. Working on this again though probably will be playing them as IG in 40k. Need advice. Is it wrong to want to build a walker version of the Armadillo Mk III that warlord sells?
  7. After many months, I finally got around to unclogging my printer. I ended up needing to replace the bowden tube and I went ahead and put on a new nozzle. Printing a Benchy just now to make sure I didn't mess anything up.
  8. Just noticed that there is a set of plastic "Wild West" minis for Dead Man's Hand. I would be very interested in knowing how compatible they are with the Stargrave sets.
  9. Some battles last night on Tentinuus Prime. The ork player rode one of his buggies up a ramp Dukes of Hazard style. Inexplicably I didn't get a pic of it. I'd like to say that it I had foreseen such a possibility rather than admit the fact I was too lazy to cut down the walkways to a more reasonable size but ...
  10. It took two surgeries (the first time they cut away some bone), but after my mom's lumbar fusion she has been remarkably free of pain. Even pain that doesn't really come from her back. But that's not always to the case so I hope your surgery gives the same relief as hers.
  11. Yeah, I mostly use it to motive me to get out and walk. I definitely go out in weather that I wouldn't if I had no exterior motivation. Just be careful. Any "free to play" game is a slippery slope once you start putting money in.
  12. With two tiny Anna Russian tomatoes growing! But yeah the two plants I left in that cage are going nuts. I was slightly worried that I had somehow over fertilized and was going to get all vine and no fruit.
  13. Just got my second shot this morning. Feeling OK so far. Not sure if my sore elbow on the other arm has anything to do with it.
  14. Yeah the amount of detail work is quite amazing.
  15. Since this troll in and of itself constitutes a committee I'd say that a -10 to all initiative rolls is in order. Nice work!
  16. You do great work on those cockpits. Very nice forces.
  17. Why are they putting infants into the phantom zone prison? And is fire the way to break them out?
  18. Mel the Terrain Tutor did a whole series on his jungle board on Youtube. He definitely used mixed herbs.
  19. I caught a lot of Gibles today. Perhaps too many.
  20. For barb wire, I found some ribbon wire used for gift boxes that is metallic and has a bit of texture. Maybe more like razer wire than barbed, but might work better than smooth wire.
