Re: Making Trees

Received the trees I ordered, pretty happy with them. Got them in a tiny bag that made me wonder if they had sent me the wrong item, but lo and behold, it actually contained exactly 100 happy little trees :D trees.jpg Looking pretty good in my opinion, doesn't look like I need to do much reshaping; ...

Re: First layout:Kyushu

Weekly update no.5! Not much going on on the layout, trying to make something out of the large flat area at the front. Caught a cold so there's not much energy left at the end of a working day to actually do something. Spent most time on the tiling tool. And yes, by now I could've tiled a lot of hou...

Re: First layout:Kyushu

Hi Chris! Thanks for the link, that's some nice inspiration! I have a resin printer with a 47 micron resolution (0.047 mm) and a 40 micron layer height, so in theory it _should_ be able to print those details if my math is right. If you look closely you can see the individual layers on this model: p...

Re: First layout:Kyushu

Not much happening on the layout in the last week. Tried out the spray glue I bought for gluing down the XPS, seems to work fine without reacting with the polystyrene. Also tried using the Dremel with a sanding drum (grit 80), that works great but it's incredibly messy, really need to have the vacuu...

Re: Making Trees

Just found an eBay seller offering a hundred 32mm trees for a measly $12 and free shipping. (and 400 for $30 and some change). And since the trunk of the trees is supposedly made of metal wire, they should be somewhat customizable so you don't end up with a hundred identical trees. https://www.ebay....

Re: A new toy!!!

Did a test print last week to see how well it can print thin objects. Increased the exposure time per layer from 8 to 10 seconds and printed a bunch of poles, square pillars, walls and trusses, ranging from 1.0mm thickness to 0.1mm, most 10mm high. torture.jpg I messed up the print in multiple steps...

Re: First layout:Kyushu

Small update: Been hacking away at XPS for a couple of evenings now, the landscape is slowly starting to take shape. It's not going as fast as I thought it would, I'd like to incorporate a river, some bridges and a small village or two, but figuring out where exactly to put those and how large they ...

Re: A new toy!!!

Quick update: did my first print this morning, in a freezing shed. Printed six small 20mm tall figurines with default settings, the two in the center came out good, the other four ended up as an unidentifiable mess. The stench isn't as bad as I expected, nowhere near as bad as IPA, but it'll probabl...

Re: A new toy!!!

Have you tried some of the newer resins yet? They don't require an IPA bath to rinse your prints, normal water will work just fine. I just ordered an Anet N4 Resin printer and a bottle of Photocentric resin to give it a try, this type of printing seems perfect for printing T scaled houses, cars, tra...
