Re: Bluehinter's Free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Hot off the printer! We have our first Wirrn prototype! (minus the base and half the legs). http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP129.JPG http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP130.JPG Good news: the arm sockets work fine and it can stand up on it's own without the butt section (for those who...

Re: Bluehinter's Free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Ah! Good to know! Thanks! I'm getting a quotes at about $50 for a resin print, so I'm trying to decide whether or not to pull the trigger. Oh, and the LED lego brick is the one you reference on your site, right? Yes, either the green one from this set: https://smile.amazon.com/UniBlock-Light-Up-Bri...

Re: BlueHinter's free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Thanks for the insight, BH. I'll check to see if SLA would be prohibitively expensive. And just so I'm clear, you need to print two copies of each of the tentacles, yes? No, everything you need is there in 4 files (print 1 of each): Rutan Body Rutan Key tentacle (this is a long single tentacle that...

Re: BlueHinter's free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

I've got the plug design Wirrn legs printing now. I'm going to try two different versions... one where I let CURA build the supports, and one where I build them myself to see which looks better when they're cut away. (the CURA support versions have a rough waffle pattern to them and jagged scalloped...

Re: BlueHinter's free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Mr Hinter! I have a quick question for you. I was trying to get the Rutan model printed via 3dhubs, but the printer rejected the order because he didn't think FDM would print it properly. He went on to suggest SLS or SLA printing. Do you think those would work all right? How tight are sockets for t...

Re: BlueHinter's free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Thanks to Tony Harrison's awesome vlog about building and painting the TARDIS console , interest in the project has exploded in the last few weeks. I wish I had new stuff to actually show off for the people who are just joining in. The Wirrn continues to be a never-ending headache, as the legs thems...

Re: The Monster Project - FOURTH DOCTOR (part 1)

These are gorgeous. I especially love the Nucleus of the Swarm. One of my all time favorite lamest monsters. If you ever feel like taking 100-200 photos of any of these (besides the Wirrn, which I'm nearly done with my own version of), I'd love to try to convert them into 3D printable versions. The ...

Re: BlueHinter's free 3-D printable 5" scale figures & vehicles (Got a printer? Print your own customs!)

Look at you, you sexy thing! http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP124.JPG The Wirrn head came out gorgeous this time. The only problem is, I made the supports too thick so they broke off the end of the antenna when I tried to snip them off. I should hopefully be able to fix that on the next pri...
