Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Got most of the Thunderhawk glued together today, the nose is still separate (hence the elastic bands) so I can get the ladders and flight deck out to paint the interior. There are some gaps that need filling due to some warping in the prints where I didn't support well enough, and a few areas where...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

The parts are printed, so I guess I need to figure out how to glue or all together. Lots of drilling and pinning coming soon.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

That red is just the cheap Elegoo standard red - I've gone through 3 bottles (not just with this), which I'd bought more when it was £17 a bottle from Amazon ... cheapest now is about £24.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

I've neglected to post for a while again. I've printed about 3500pts of Khorne Daemons since my last photo, and a few other bits and pieces. This is all of the Khorne models I printed in red resin - Skarbrand, two Bloodthirsters, Rendmaster Herald on Blood Throne, Skull Cannon, a few Bloodmasters, S...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

And most recently decided to try a bit bigger again. This dragon needed 16 hours for the body and tail, another 16 hours for the 4 wing pieces together, and then another 6 hours for the base and a replacement tail end (I didn't support the tail properly and one spike didn't get printed). Was my firs...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

And so started a run of printing bigger and bigger models.

The first Skarbrand inspired thirster was printed in two plates, one for the body and one for the pair of wings.

The other two were one plate each, with the wings either side of the body, scaled down to 85%.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Decided to see how big I could go printing a single piece model, so scaled this forest dragon to just fit in the print volume. It was also a test of Elegoo abs like smoky gray resin, it has some flex to it so less risk of snapping small details.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Had a run of printing Primarchs, taking large scale statues and scaling them down to 40k scale, and combining all the parts so they were printed as a single figure and separate base.

Still got a few more to do, but got sidetracked printing bigger things.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Haven't updated this for a bit, but I've printed lots. And lots. And lots!

First up is a plasma blastgun to convert a plastic Shadowsword to a Stormblade. It's not an identical copy, but it's close enough. This is the first model I tried hollowing to save on resin.

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Just finished printing this large Konrad Curze statue for my brother in law, at 50% scale (even at this size the knee is as tall as a standard human figure). 20220702_185515.jpg The base, cloak, helmet, and cables were printed on the Mars 2 Pro, and the rest on the Mars 3 Pro. There were only a coup...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Comparing the tracks I realised that the resized Centaur was a little smaller than the original, so resized to 90 percent length and printed again. Also printed a 90 percent length open topped version at the same time, the Mars 3 plate is just large enough to do 2 side by side when angled in one dir...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

Just got the resized model out of the printer. Overall length is pretty close, height and width are good. But realised that the internal placement of the seats is off a lot. 20220630_063237.jpg 20220630_064502.jpg Until it's dry and fully cured I won't be able to check if the crew will fit ok, of no...

Re: 3d printing - damn I'm hooked

:!: Argh! Dug my DKoK out of the attic, put an original Centaur side by side with the printed one, and the printed one is too long! It's the correct height and width, but about 15% too long; and the stubber is 15% too long too. Have rescaled it lengthwise and printing another one overnight to see ho...
