Talae's Resin Printing Journey

Recommended Posts

I figured now that I have the machine up and running I should start a proper thread to document my progress. Here is what the first weekend had in store (Sir Forscale for scale):

20210221_220827.thumb.jpg.2d3e54cf2ec9cd2df8a9364f8a995342.jpg

 

Here are some solo shots. This first guy I didnt think to resize and came out larger than intended. He will serve as a goliath or half-giant. He came with the only Patreon I have backed so far - Archvillain. Two pieces - mini and base:

My second mini (and the one that made me realize I made the right choice getting into Resin) was this Couatl from Antimatter Games. Five pieces - base, body, torso and wing, other wing, and head. The base gave me some struggles to the point I gave up on the presupported file and opted to learn basics of supports in Lychee:

The third and final mini of the weekend was this guy from Archvillain. He turned out great other than water this white chalky stuff is. Note - he is attached to the base by only the knee, so neat pose:

Not a bad start, if I say so myself.

 

I have already been tempted by many Patreons but am attempting to hold fast and stick with one for now. I have lots of minis sitting in files that I can tap into. (This resolve might not hold until March, lol).

There is something magical about 3-D printing.

 

I keep forgetting to get Artisan Guild's Quetzalcoatl miniature - thing's a beast.

Now attached to the base and also had a failed print that turned out interesting enough I may keep it.

And the failure in action:

It seems the supports couldn't hold it.

Maybe this was a presupport?

Try to use a few heavy supports on the parts that print first.

White Chalky stuff = cured before it was fully dried after washing.

 

Why are your supports so long on that failed one?

 

It was the presupported file.

I guess there's something to be said for the failures still being somewhat usable when you print things head toward the plate instead of back/feet toward the plate....

Printed this guy for my daughter to paint (I let her pick from anything from the Archvillain February release and the Antimatter Games recent Kickstarter and this is what she picked which made me laugh a little).

I also printed this guy a second time on the same settings with no luck. He is now printing again with modified supports and a slight change in exposure time. Guess I am starting a squad of these stealthy guys. Lol

I printed these and assembled them last night. Not sure what happened to the head so that is on the plate for today's attempt at a merrow.
