3d printed paint station

Recommended Posts

Nice!  Did you create the file you used for the print?

 

I've been looking into getting a 3D printer myself. Mind if I ask what kind you have? Looks like the results are pretty smooth.

I'm wondering what the limit is to how many paint bottle holders you could have. My collection is larger than five bottles.  :blush:

 

I think its purpose is to organize the desk for when you are actively painting as opposed to a paint bottle rack for all of your paint.

Yes, I used 3d studio max. There are a lot of programs available for 3d modeling.

 

I bought a PowerSpec 3D pro from the local microcenter. It has a good print size and a dual head extruder.

The tech is changing rapidly so mine will be obsolete within months. You do have to start somewhere though.

Mine too! I wanted to keep the ones I used on a single figure together. If I stop for a while and come back I don't have to memorize what colors I was using. I was limited by the size of the print bed too

I'd make that pallet area a wet pallet if I had one of those.  Will that material hold water?

  • A small wet palette area. My big wet palette collects dirt, flecks of dried paint, cat hair, etc.
  • If the wet palette is small I will have to change it often. It won't have time to grow mold or collect dirt

 

 

It should hold water perfectly fine.

That's pretty awesome! If you ever offer these for sale, I would be game to get one.

 

Currently I'm using a Games Workshop paintstation, but it doesn't fit the smaller paint bottles (reaper, vallejo, etc) and is kind of big for where i use it.

It's made of pla plastic. It does hold water

I'll show it to Reaper at ReaperCon. They might be interested in professionally making them.

That'd be very cool. I really like painting stations, especially ones that I can easily move.

Thats very cool. I like the spots for the dropper bottles. Might I suggest making the water area a bit deeper and a bumb or line texture on the bottom for cleaning brushes. I'd buy one!

      Here is another 3D printed mini.
      She's from Artisan Guild from the Death Tide Jurakin Set.
      This is the pin up - Telxia Tidal Beauty.
       
      She's a mermaid so she's partially nude hence the links.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Found the 3d model while browsing Pinterest and reached out to the designer and they sent me the file so I could have it printed

      As an entry to @Glitterwolf’s painting Pandemic challenge I figured I’d try something a little different.  I printed up this scaled-down nurse from Silent Hill.  Plan is to have her with a wall that is flaking away (crackle paint is the intent here) and dirty tile floor.  
       
      a long time ago (I swore I had it bookmarked but alas...) I found a write-up by an individual who painted up some amazing veiny zombie skin using batting as a mask for the airbrush with the dark bruised colours going on first before adding the skin tone overtop.  Since I can’t find the reference, I’m going on trial and error and some fuzzy memory.  
       

       

       
      im going to have to be very careful with the cleaver as it is less than 1mm thick. 
       

      primed white and her dress was then covered with tape to minimize cleanup later. 
       

      A good vibrant purple (mix of warcolours Violet 5 and Vallejo game air alien purple). Never planned on painting a zombie purple before.  
       

       
      Then I hit it, using some batting that I teased and stretched out with Vallejo game air electric blue.  The right, her left, leg turned out better but it’s more splotchy than veiny.  I feel for the skin layer I’ll need a finer mesh (more space between) but thicker strands.  Will have to play with the batting to see what I can come up with.  
       
      Thinking of priming up a couple plastic spoons to try this on to see how things turn out before I attack her.  Hope to start some work on the base tomorrow night. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I have yet to unpack the Elegoo Mars.
      However I installed Chitubox.
       
      I have now loaded files.
      As recommended on Youtube I filled the bed with several minis to print.
      And I laid them flat to speed up the printing process and tilted them a little.
       
      Test subjects:
       
      Snake Warrior Cobra ( with base) Bat Demon Small Foo Dog statues Asian Ghost Oni in three parts.  

       
      Added the automated supports.
