Finishing Chocobos

With some long prints running, and the house low energy (as everyone is sick, but so be it), I had a chance to finish up a few Chocobos. The three Chocobos at various stages of painting: View this post on Instagram Time to paint some Chocobos! #3dprinting #ffxv #finalfantasy #chocobo A post shared by Dwyer Devices…

Bestiary – Goblins

For the adventure through the sewers we’d been using cardboard tokens for Goblins. Earlier attempts to print goblins (sliced with Slic3r) failed spectacularly, but I wanted to try again slicing with Cura to see if we couldn’t get something that worked. It was a success: View this post on Instagram The glue is curing on the goblin…

Bestiary – Bulette

After a few failed moon prints I finally found a design that would work. View this post on Instagram It took 30 hours, but finally a clean,…
