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.

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…

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: The old-school/1960’s futurist vibe of the original model fit perfectly, and is captured surprisingly well even scaled down 25%.

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: I did end…

Airship 1 – Model Errors

I recently backed the RPG Tool Wargaming Printable Items Kickstarter, and received the model files in mid December. 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…
