For tabletop a FDM is no problem for most people.

For Display and painting ( what I do) one needs the resin printer for minis.

 

For FDM these are pretty decent prints!

A little sanding perhaps and apaint job and they're good to go!

I'm hogging both right now.

 

Both for Cast & Play stuffs, floors and walls FDM. Minis on the Mini.

That's the best combo.

FDM for terrain and Resin for minis.

 

I don't have a FDM one, too technical for me and no room either.

But I have succesfully printed the Aztec Pyramid for the Giant Croc Mount ( totally not a Dread Saurian ::P:) on my Elegoo Mars.

I did hollow the parts of course!

I'd love to get elegoo's Neptune 2 FDM printer, if they ever get around to stocking more:( Hell, I'd love a saturn too:)

I now have an Ender 3 and a CR10mini for FDM and a Phrozen SM4K for resin. Honestly, it is too many for my needs compared to space available land I should get rid of one of the FDM printers.

I just ordered the Mercury. ::): I'm telling Grump I need it for last minute schoolwork.  Which, I'm afraid is true. Finished proofs for May.

 

Feeding it with denatured alcohol.

I thought it would be years before I bought a 3D printer, but my wife recently became interested in getting one, too. So we agreed to get one as an anniversary gift to ourselves. :B):

 

Our Mars 2 Pro came last week. These were the first minis I printed with it (all from Capritor Miniatures). Done in water washable resin.

Those look great. Can you share your settings? I have a 500 and 1000 gram bottle of washable resin (grey and blue), and I always like to try what works for people:)

If you do want to get rid of one I guess you can easily sell it on the Bay of Evil or something like that.

A few things I've printed lately that weren't miniature related (although I have done a number of miniatures recently LOL).

 

First, Huehuetéotl - Tlaloc from the Templo Major in Mexico City (actually have this one painted fully):

This one is now cured and dry, unlike in the picture LOL A temple Lion Guardian

A triceratops skull. Love this one since it's a 3D scan of an actual fossil! Gotta find me more of these!

That is so cool! Where is the STL from?

 

I know, right?? LOL It's from MyMiniFactory's Scan the World campaign. It's free, too, which is nice. If you look in the customer pictures, one guy at a museum even printed it off on a huge printer and have it as an exhibit!
