    Jasper vs the 3D Printer

    So finally, after many years of wanting one, I got a 3D printer for Christmas this year. This has much to do with the ever decreasing cost of them, especially the Creality Ender 3, which is what I got. This isn't so much about set up or using the printer (other than to say that Tom from Fat Dragon Games and his Tomb of 3D Printed Horrors made the whole process so so easy, his instructional videos on the Ender 3 made it all easy, and his Cura setup files for printing minis worked for me straight away) but the minis stuff I'm printing and (hopefully) painting. So, got the printer set up yesterday before going to a friend's for supper. Later got the bed leveled (ish) and printed off one of the free models Fat Dragon gave away this year with their newsletter. I used the stock print bed cover for this and it really stuck on quite hard. I later snapped the head off the halberd trying to get it off. Eventually had to heat the bed up to get it to come off. So this morning I switched the the glass bed I'd ordered with it and got that all leveled. Tested it out with another FDG skelly. Nova Corps colour scheme test guy included for scale (he was the only thing within easy reach). I'm looking forward to cleaning these up, slapping some primer on them and seeing how they paint, but expect that will be a few days. FYI, these skellies print out in a little over an hour. Now on to something a bit more complicated, to see how it comes out. This should make a 65mm talk bipedal "chicken tank". Design by Radek Szczepanczyk, available on MyMiniFactory for free. This will take about 8 hours to print.

    Kristo65's 3d printed ruins

    This is a test piece for some ruins I'm printing and assembling. I may have gone a bit overboard on the vines.
  3. The Skyless Realms was a kickstarter for some .stl-files that funded recently and delivered just a couple weeks ago. The theme was buildings, scatter terrain and miniatures of several kinds that would typically found in the Underdark setting for D&D. Centered around spider-worshipping Dark Elves, there are a bunch of classic cave and dungeon monsters, Deep Gnomes, Gray Dwarves, lizardfolk and the obligatory tentacle-faced horrors that want to suck out your brains. A whole lot of stuff! Now, I have a two year old cheapo flashforge finder FDM-printer that only uses PLA material. It is great for terrain and buildings, but not so great for miniatures because of the unsightly print lines and such. However... the print lines are really not all that bad, especially when seen on the table and not in extreme close-up as in the photos. And I even printed these at the "normal" settings which have a .18mm layer height and not the "hyper" settings which has a .08mm layer height. Each of the smaller myconids took less than an hour to print, and the Behemoth about four hours in a single piece. Lots of pictures below the click me

    Terrain4Print - Ulvheim

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/terrain4print/terrain4print-ulvheim? About This project aims to expand the Ulvheim ruin into a full featured ruin city for your home 3D printer. You can already download the first two releases from thingiverse for free. There is also an earlier release with smaller houses, also available for free. Click the image to see them. Previous Ulvheim releases The pledge rewards are STL-file downloads. I will share the files with Dropbox and the download will be available for years. If you have access to a 3D printer you can print as many copies of the models as you like. You can also vary the scale for more variety. Any type of 3D printer works but FDM is the most economical. Most models will fit inside a 120x120mm print bed. Printed parts can then be painted. The separate pieces fit together using a clip, also printed. This way you can build several different configurations with the same printed parts. You can of course glue it together if you need extra stability. Clip system I have been making 3D printable terrain since 2016. I have done one kickstarter before. All files from that kickstarter are available in my store. But read on to the pledges before you buy anything there. I also have a Patreon page and all models done for that is released for free on thingiverse. This includes the previous three Ulvheim releases. As base goal, I will create these expansions that are compatible with earlier Ulvheim ruins (type B). Base goal 1 - Roof set This set gives you the ability to create roofs on your buildings. Not everything has to be ruined. You can with these models build complete buildings, from the smallest shed to the largest castle. The roofs will build up like stairs. There will of course be options for half ruined roofs. The roofs will be made to fit the Ulvheim A buildings. This is the smaller complete buildings. The images below is only very rough sketches showing what is possible. The base goal does not include roofs for L-shaped or T-shaped building. Nor is it possible to put roofs on the hexagonal tower etc. Whole modular roofs Modular roof ruin Base goal 2 - More wall variations Nothing beats variation and more options. Two new basic walls with lots of ruined options. One solid style and one arc style. Below are some sketches of possible layouts. The final layout is not decided yet. Solid wall sketches Arc walls sketches Base goal 3 - Corners for round towers Three new types of corners. With these you can build hexagonal, octagonal and decagonal towers (6, 8 and 10 sides). You will be able to build really high towers. There will be ruined options. The base goals does not include floors or roofs for these. Hexagonal and octagonal towers Base goal 4 - Horizontal ruins The solid walls are made into ruins where the cuts go more horizontal. So you can build a long jagged ruin wall. There will be a couple of variants, from the available solid walls. there will be transitions from whole walls. 3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins These are the pledge levels. Ulvheim supporter If you just want to cheer me on. I will send you a bunch (5) of Terrain4Print stickers. I will also create a unique sticker for this kickstarter and send you a bunch (5). Ulvheim worker If you are on a limited budget and only want a limited selection, this is for you. You will get the base goals and about one third of the unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads. Ulvheim settler This is the complete Ulvheim download at a reduces price for the first backers. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads. There is a limited number of these so be quick. As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers. Ulvheim burgher This is the complete Ulvheim download. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads. Ulvheim necromancer This the complete Ulvheim download plus all my old premium files (from the shop). You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. As soon as the kickstarter payments are processed you will get a download link the the premium files. These are STL-file downloads. Ulvheim architect If you want me to create something custom from your specification, this is for you. Together we will work out the details. It can't be something huge or overly complicated but expect a handful of models. For instance, wall tiles with a special symbols. A couple of special statues or gargoyles. The files must match the general Ulvheim theme. I prefer to make these models available to Settlers, Burghers and Necromancers too. But if it is something special you want exclusively, it can be arranged. If you take this pledge, contact me and describe what you have in mind. This way we can agree on a reasonable level. As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers. Add on: Stickers I will create a unique set of stickers for Ulvheim. Supporters, Settlers and Architects will get them for free. Workers, Burghers and Necromancers have to add $10 to have them. Simply add $10 to your pledge. I will sort it out manually after the project is done. You will get 5 Terrain4Print stickers and 5 Ulvheim kickstarter stickers. There are lots of more stuff to make for this. This project will have stretch goals. The more pledges that come in, the more stuff will be made. The first three stretch goals are decided already. When they are unlocked, there will be more made available if there is enough interest. Since I reside in Sweden and use SEK (Swedish crowns) I present stretch goal as % instead. Stetch goal 1 - Battlements 133% (20k SEK) If you want to make a castle type building, playing siege scenarios. This will make it possible. It is basically a low wall with a strip of floor and battlement fitting around both convex and concave corners. The sketch below shows a corner piece for a convex corner. There will of course also be ruined battlements. Stairs made will fit against the battlements. Battlement sketch Stetch goal 2 - Windows 167% (also for workers) (25k SEK) Two new walls with smaller openings, like windows. This is a sketch of one of them. It will print in two parts, without support. It has a big arc. Inside it a thinner wall with two smaller arcs. The inside of the smaller arcs is open to make windows. Windowed wall Stretch goal 3 - Rubble piles 200% (30k SEK) Eight piles of rubble, big and small. Stones in various format, pieces of wood, broken statues etc. There will be round piles and also piles with one or two flat sides to fit against walls and corners. Two piles of rubble Possible stretch goals If the three stretch goals above are unlocked, we will have a vote on the next. Big set of stairs more elegant Floor set with wooden planks instead of stone Pillars Walls with door openings Relief walls Small balcony (from single wall) Big modular balcony Interior balcony Wall fountain Wall statue Wall with big gate Modular foundation to put everything on Cemetary set with walls, gate, tombstones and mausoleums Risks and challenges I have been creating 3D terrain for quite some time, including a previous successful Kickstarter as well as my many Patreon projects. I feel I have always delivered what I promise (and have often over delivered), however this is not my full-time job and so there exists the possibility that full delivery might take some time if all the stretch goals are unlocked. My aim is that the models will be delivered as soon as they are ready - so base goals should be on time with any of the work-in-progress stretch goals being released piecemeal upon their completion. Personal/work commitments are the only real challenge, but I have a very caring family that fully supports me and understands my passion for producing my 3D creations.
  5. Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left.... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy. I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all. Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun. I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues. £10 Road Builder £30 Asteroid Miner £40 Planet Settler
  6. Hi Everyone, I wanted to share a new campaign that I've just started: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1502793436/mav3rick-modular-3d-printable-tank-kit-in-28mm-sca 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! -Treadhead Rad

    Mr. Blobby

    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.

    Kristof's Elven Catapult

    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

    Impact Miniatures Mocking Beast

    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. Mocking Beast face by Mckenna35, on Flickr Mocking Beast front by Mckenna35, on Flickr Mocking Beast back by Mckenna35, on Flickr 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.

    Paleolithic Graffiti

    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.
  11. 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. Unpainted PLA at 150 microns Printed on a Flashforge Finder/Creator Pro Unpainted PLA at 150 microns The Sets This campaign's featured sets are shown below (these are renderss). Stretch Goals Unlocked So Far We are now working towards these bonus floor tile types, a grate and plate style in I, S and E tiles
  12. got a 3D printer, or access to a friends, or one at a library or university this might be for you About 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.

    Kristof's Car(s)

    Decided I needed some retro futuristic hover cars. The Europa Magnus Station Wagon: I also decided to create a cheesy vintage style advertisement for it. This was a quick sculpt (about 4 hours in Fusion and 3 hours on the printer). The reason behind this car was that I wanted something relatively quick to print and prep that I could practice vehicle painting techniques on. I have no idea why I decided to make my first one in a retro futuristic style - I'm not even really a fan of that style, but I'm probably going to make some more. I've got some ideas for some other hover cars/trucks as well as some with wheels. Since most of them will be simple one or two piece prints that will get knocked out in a few hours/days, I'll keep them all in a single thread.

    Rottweiler Grav Tank for my IMEF

    As if I didn't already have so many projects in progress I can't count, I kept looking at the case of Bones IMEF figures, and thought "These guys need something that can take out a few NOVA Corp Tycho AFVs." This concept was born: I am shooting for it to be about the size of a GW Land Raider. Going to block it out in Fusion 360 soon.
  15. So I've long wanted a unique hover tank/APC to go with all my NOVA Corp figures, and last night I was suddenly inspired to create one. Here are my results so far: This is just the left half of the lower hull. Once I finish detailing it with the things I want to be symmetrical, I will mirror it, and then add additional detailing, and a turret. I'm creating this in Fusion 360, and from there I'll export it for printing on my 3d printer. I have no idea if I'll ever get around to painting it, as I still don't have my NOVA Corp soldiers painted beyond a base coat, though. We'll have to wait and see.
  16. I'm working on a Christmas gift for a D&D playing friend. It's basically a "banner" of 3d letters spelling out a favorite phrase of hers, but each letter is embedded with D&D themed pictures. I've put a hidden meaning in this letter, but I want to see if it's too obvious, or too subtle. Can you get it?

    3D printed paint racks

    Hi all! I haven't posted here in a while as I had to take a break from painting to do some remodeling on my house. That was two years ago. Finally able to get back to this hobby I love so I wanted to organize my paint desk some. I designed some paint racks to store my mini paints and figured that someone else might benefit from them as well. I posted them on Thingiverse for all to use. Totally free and open source!! I am adding to them as people ask for additional brands of paint and other configurations. If anyone prints them and needs some changes or additional options just let me know and I will be happy to see what I can do. Looking forward to getting involved again in this great community!! Without further blabbing here are the links to the units: Large Straight - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2531450 Small Straight - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2549451 Inside Corner - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2543779 Outside Corner - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2588073 Happy Painting!!!
  18. We are live on our Third kickstarter, this one focuses on fantasy cultures and gives them each unique tiles that are 3d printable and you can make those very specific dungeon encounters or city role playing sessions. We also have some new Beasties that will be 3d print compatible! We hope you will join us, with 2 kickstarters on our belt we are confident that our record will be to your satisfaction if you are a new backer, and if you have already been with us you already know what to expect!

    3D printed minis

    So I took a commission to paint some minis for a tabletop game. I didn't even think to ask what material they were made from. I get them, and they're 3D printed. Have any of you primed and painted this stuff? It's fairly high quality for 3D printing, but there are extremely slight striations. I am hoping that primer will smooth it out, but now I'm concerned with how the primer will react to this material. I have already seen what happens to the GW plastic when someone else applied the spray primer too close, so I'm thinking the safest thing might be brush on. Any advice or help would be great.

  21. Hello! I have a question on the upcoming ReaperCon this year. For the Master series paint open contest rules on the page https://reapercon.com/contestI could not find anything regarding personally designed Models that an artist 3D prints and then paints. for use as an example: That is my first attempt at a model I personally designed in Blender, and then printed, in the style of warhammer 40k, though as a mention I really like the look of the grav-flux bombard from forgeworld so I created a very close facsimile of it for my model. Under the rules I'm seeing I'm assuming that in the Painters Division it would not matter if it is 3D printed given the source of the model is not given consideration, just the prep and painting quality. However I'm curious what, if any, the ruling on 3D designed and printed models are in the Open Division. Given the rules and the scoring system, sculpted models are judged by design originality, creativity, difficulty, etc, would a custom designed 3D printed model enjoy the same criteria for judging, or would it even be welcome in this division? Arguably this could extend to the diorama and vehicle division as well given the criteria in those. I would like to argue that 3D designed and printed models should be welcome in any division; my design time alone for the model I gave as an example was clocked at 60+ hours. And while my tools and medium are different than a clay or greenstuff sculptor, I don't put any less passion or hard work into it.

    I have a new 3d printer

    I finally broke down and bought a 3d printer to play with. After a lot of reviews and investigation, and a long wait time, I finally found myself with a Prusa Mk2 from Prusa's company in Cz republic. the machine came fully assembled and even the very first print was pretty. (a very cute little treefrog) I have since printed a bunch more frogs and Adelaine the dragon (who thinks she's a wolf howling at the moon). and a lot of roadway prints from Fat dragons latest kickstarter As I said the prints are really nice even at the fastest speeds (which are not fast but such is the life of 3d printers.) a 4 inch square road section takes about 2 hours to produce and the machine will handle up to 4 sections at a time on the available bed space. I am including this here so I don't forget and I will put pictures up when I get done with work. My only previous experience with a printer has been a small m3D which was much more finicky and had a real problem with size limitations and I guess I expected the worst, but this has done a great job
