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…

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. View this post on Instagram…

Space Ship Tokens

It’s unsurprising that the 10 year old’s open ended school projects often result in building a new board game. This round, the game called for a series of Space Ship tokens: View this post on Instagram Another week, another school project for the 10 year old, which means another board game design. This one called for…

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…

Airship 1 – Model Errors

I’ve started to make my way through the models, printing as many of them as look interesting. Quite a lot of the models are supplied as components that can be combined to create more complex and varied structures. Why not…
