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 – Giant Owl

I’ve been getting consistently better prints, with finer quality layers, better supports, and fewer errors, using Cura 3 for slicing, compared to Slic3r. I’ve had a number of prints that failed, or had marginal errors, when slicing and printing creatures at 28mm scale. I decided to try my luck with Cura on a Giant Owl: View this post…

Squishy Owl

The test print of the NinjaFlex went smoothly, so onto the squishy owl. This is a Christmas present for the 5 year old. A few false starts, and some fiddling with live z-tuning, and things were printing well. The first print is nearly perfect, except for the top of the head, where there are too few layers,…

Bestiary – Goblin Dog

I wanted a decent sized pack, so setup a print with six copies of the small hyena: View this post on Instagram Hard to clean, but perfect for gaming.

Shark the Shark

As luck would have it, the friends from Brooklyn had another evening free. There was a cleaner print of a Sorting Hat waiting for the older of the two kids, but we’d never gotten around to printing anything for the younger kid. Four year olds have less than zero patience, which meant browsing through different…
