Glitterwolf's 3D Printing Adventures

You're a machine!  Great stuff!

 

Thx!

It's addictive...and I already have a lot of nice files.

More is coming, I'm down to the last bit of resin from the 1st bottle.

2nd bottle is ready to step in when it's depleted.

 

Removing the supports and cleaning from that set took me an hour, especially being very very careful with all those snakes.

This time I didn't break anything.

 

Today I painted.

There are a few things in Show Off now, two of them are 3D prints.

I'm going to be printing several of the snake statues, altar, and some Egyptian Style Torches, stairs etc.

There is going to be a "project" it will feature in my Shifting Sands Project.

Lots of popping sounds, 4, 5 hours later this is now curing.

I even hollowed it...but it was still a long ride.

Right!

Today was the day.

 

Last night I printed that stairs, and something kept going on in my head, check the FEP, clean it, filter the resin.

I don't know why..since I just added fresh resin.

 

But still it bugged me somehow and it seemed my inner voice/guardian angel/deceased ancestor/deity that somehow likes me, was right.

I filtered the resin, removed a little bit of cured stuff form the FEP and I noticed a serious dent and it had still cured resin on it.

I removed it and indeed, the FEP got damaged, a tiny hole....

 

So, with the aid of these youtube clips I changed the FEP.

The first one shows it all in perfect steps but when I was almost done I thought, why is the FEP so loose?

And when I watched the second one it was explained that tightening would occur with the second set of screws...

So..thanks for Youtube!

 

Here is my progress.

Not bad for a non tech wolf, it is printing as we speak and in 4,5 hours I will know if it all works fine.

At least it isn't spilling any resin at the moment...

 

So filter the resin/clean the VAT

 

Loosen the large screws

Take the rear off what's holding the FEP

Now loosen the smaller screws

Take it apart

Remove the old FEP

Place a new FEP between the parts and a sponge under that

Screw those back together, you need to puncture the screws through the FEP

Remove sponge

Cut the excess FEP with a hobby knife

It's tightened now and should sound a bit like a drum

Hm... Doesn't anyone make 'pre-holed' FEP film for your printer?   

 

All the films for my old Bean came pre-cut and pre-holed to fit it exactly. No worry of tearing the film as you puncture it.

No idea, these are the official ones.

Works well though

Scaled the snakes down to 30%

Added supports then cloned them.

If you rotated some 180 degrees, so that the head points the other way, you could probably fit a few more...

I only need 6 of the smaller ones.

Just one more big one ( printing almost done as we speak) and I'll have all the statues I need.

 

Then a few more braziers.

Today it's printing time.

A 6,5 hour job and if all goes well I'll have the Artisan Guild Battle Prawn / Zeek monster.

Printing the head on the same build plate as the main body, hoping to get the whole monster that way.

 

There are two rider options, I think I'll go with the wise woman.

Somehow I think I could paint her as a necromancer riding a huge insect monster, or maybe a desert dweller as the scourgeland survivors basically are.

 

Here is a pic from the internet, it should look like this.

Base is not in the printer, I'm thinking of using one of my own, not sure yet.

These are the rider options

      Painted this one for a friend who is obsessed with the Child from the Mandalorian. It’s a 3D print that I got from a shop on Etsy.

      Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one.  I’ve shied away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon.  
       
      In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon...  oops!  
       


       
      I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown).  I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green.  
       
      For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown.  
       

       

       

       

       
      Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base.  I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it.  
       
      in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. 
       
      Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend.  That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      So as hinted in my US Armored Company thread, here's the beginning of @Glitterwolf's Dragoons!
       
      Some work on the Dutch tonight, PTRLs and C&Vs Had a problem with the wash I put on them last night, so had to re do the base coat. Tried a different wash, seen on one of the C&Vs, so need to try something else... Thanks for looking! SGT G   link to my US force
