Bestiary – Jotunkiller

From Dutch Mogul, the Jotunkiller was released on MyMiniFactory as part of a promotion for the Scatterblocks Kickstarter. “Forged from shadowsteel and given life by the embers of a dying god, the Jotunkiller was the the dwarves’ greatest weapon in their war against giant-kind, and still stands as a guardian of the Netherforge.” A test print…

Ships – Judgement Class Capital Ship

Going through the various Kickstarter projects we’ve backed recently, picking some models from each to print and test out. From the SciFi Structures Kickstarter, the Judgement class – capital ship.stl: A quick ship to slice and print, this Capital Ship makes an easy addition to the growing fleets that are collecting in the kids bedrooms. Source: SciFi Structures…

Ships – Pegasus Class Carrier

Going through the various Kickstarter projects we’ve backed recently, picking some models from each to print and test out. From the SciFi Structures Kickstarter, the pegasus_class_carrier argama.stl: This ship was an easy print – although the support structures were fairly solid and tucked into tight places, they were fairly easy to remove. The surface detail of the…

Ships – Battlecruiser

Going through the various Kickstarter projects we’ve backed recently, picking some models from each to print and test out. From the SciFi Structures Kickstarter, the battlecruiser_repaired.stl. This is the first of the Project Mobius series that I’ve printed, and I learned a few things in the process. Transparent materials don’t work well for these small detail…

Bestiary – Pegasus

Testing out a few things on this print: the experimental branching tree supports of Cura 3.2, and 80% infill on a creature to better support delicate features. If this is successful we’re printing two of these: one for our collection,  one for one of the 10 year old’s friends at school. While prepping the model, it…

Wall Mount Paint Rack

One day you have no enamel paints, the next day you’ve got 23 jars. I needed some way of storing all of my enamel paints, getting them out of the way, while not hiding them away in a drawer. Why not print a solution? Each rack holds four jars of Testor enamel or acrylic paint, with the…

Sylph

The 10 year old has a project to come up with a 3D representation of a specific vocabulary word: sylph. Scouring various model sites, and this resampled version of a statue scan from the Stanford 3D Scanning Repository seemed like a good fit. We’re using a modified, and much simplified, version of Lucy that’s been pre-processed…

Doll House Dresser

An original doll-house scale dresser design based on the discontinued 4 drawer Ikea Mandal dresser. After the first test prints, I needed to widen the drawer rails by 0.5mm on each side, otherwise the drawers were just wide enough, with just enough rail, to slip out and drop down when pushed to one side. The final…
