Got some stuff from Ikea to make a full room desk for the printers and PC.
And started a large Vegeta model.

05SRT4 can you print me a dog like you have in your picture?  How long did he take to print?  I like the model.

We had “The Grammys” as the theme at work for our department Halloween costume, so I printed these bad boys.

I used Geetech Gold silk PLA. The stuff has a beautiful sheen/shine to it, as you can see!

A sovol SV01. Supposedly a new offshoot brand from Creality, not much exposure right now, but it is suppose to be like a cr-10 mini with a few key upgrades and a direct drive extruder instead of Bowden.

how big?
at a little over 5" tall it'll be a 24hr print.
I can give it a shot during the week when I don't care if the printer is tied up.
I did a test print with some cheap crappy brittle PLA that breaks during printing.
not too bad.

FYI Tree supports....love them.

So I ended up getting a Resin printer. Anycubic Photon.



If anyone has questions about it let me know. Main things to note:

Smell is terrible, you cannot be in the same room with it. I printed a huge carbon filter which helped tremendously but you can still tell.

Clean up is a bit annoying, but once you have a nice setup its not that bad, basically gloves, 2 bath buckets of Isopropyl alcohol and a Curing station.

Post clean up is so much better, just pull off supports and a very little bit of sanding depending on how the supports came off.

Latest print: Zero sanding, just washed and cured. Detail is amazing

Credit feeding? Or on 1 credit?
I find the game is a lot more fun if you're not credit feeding it, and actually trying to save as many Prisoners as possible.  There are big bonus points to be had when saving those guys at the end of the level.

I was looking at these, but the new ones are totally new and the intertubes is pissed off over it.
new control board, newish design and models of old photon are not compatible.
which, if you never owned one doesn't matter I believe.
I don't need one but i expect i'll get one eventually just because.

but damn.
can't even come close to that detail with a .4mm nozzle and .16 layer height.
might come close with a .2mm nozzle but it will take a whole lot longer to print it i'm guessing.

Man you are really selling me on a resin printer.  I think with tweaking I can achieve that level of detail, but the striation marks would be really pronounced, which kind of ruins it depending upon the model.

They are gettin' affordable! Great option for hobbyists in the tabletop and modeling hobbies, it is pretty much cheaper to go with a resin printer to make figures than buying them to paint.

I know I would have bought one already had my original filament printer not kicked the bucket.

Its about 4” high, I printed it as individual parts and stuck it all together.

Afraid I cant recall the exact print time but I did it over a weekend so about 2 days butbI dont print over night.

sounds about right.
there is a two piece version I may try.
the 5 multi-part wasn't lining up for me and the single piece is looking like support removal hell.

Yeah if I recall the tank base was 2 parts top n bottom, The gun was 2 parts front and back, Then there was wheels left and right and the 2 mini guns.

Titch - thanks for confirming.
I relooked are the 5 or 6 piece stls I printed and figured out why they didn’t fit.

The scaling is off between track and body. Not sure what I did wrong.
So I’ll go back and scale all the parts together.

That’l do it heh.

Yeah I cant remember what I scaled it down by but as long as they all the same it should fit golden.

Just fare warning getting some of the supports out of the thing was a real PITA!!

Slightly larger, different model from what opt2not is asking for. Looking at the one he asked for seems like a post print nightmare.
