Dungeon Accessories – Piles of Gold

Small piles of gold and coins seem to be scattered about these dungeons. View this post on Instagram Piles of gold that will be scattered around a dragons hoard. Let’s see if the players remember that you never steal from a dragon… #pathfinder #3dprinting A post shared by Dwyer Devices (@dwyerdevices) on Nov 13, 2017…

Dungeon Accessories – Work Benches

These models are ridiculously complex surfaces, so slicers (at least PrusaControl and Slic3r) will have a hard time processing the model meshes if you attempt to batch print more than one or two full  work benches at the same time. For the smaller benches I printed two tops and bottoms in a single print, while for the…

Dungeon Accessories – Crates and Barrels

What’s a dungeon complex without random crates of material and barrels strewn around for the adventurers to dig through and hide behind? I wanted a small set of various cover items that would work well in different settings; dungeons, alleyways, docks. View this post on Instagram Crates and barrels to accessorize upcoming dungeons. Quick and high detail…

NinjaFlex Test

Picked up a new flexible filament, so I’m running a test print of a small pyramid with NinjaFlex. View this post on Instagram A small test pyramid to evaluate NinjaFlex for an upcoming print. Nice clean lines, a decent amount of flexibility- I think this will work out well. #3dprinting #ninjaflex A post shared by…

Wood Fill Test

Printing a simple test pattern with Hatchbox Wood Fill.

Makies Jack-o-Lantern

It was edging close to Halloween, and I just happened to have some translucent green and translucent orange filament on hand (imagine that), so a Jack-o-lantern seemed appropriate: View this post on Instagram A pumpkin in PETG.

Holiday Ornament – Second Draft

The solution to really messy edging and surface detail from the solid ornament is solvable by breaking the beveled letters apart into individual chunks, with the letter face toward the print bed.  Having the letter surface on the print bed will guarantee a smooth surface, especially with translucent filaments, where even minor layer variations are very noticable….

Holiday Ornament – First Draft

With Christmas fast approaching, I decided to start designing our family ornament for the year. I wanted it to be simple, but interesting, and identifiably us. I settled on a fairly simple shape with each of our first initials beveled into a cube. View this post on Instagram First draft of a holiday ornament for the family-…
