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

I've decided to throw caution to the wind and double-down on the as-yet-untested Lego motors. To wit, I've created a stupidly complex gearing system that will allow 4 different motors to remotely control the two whomping arms, radar dish, and left and right drives! To say this design has a high chan...

I spent a good chunk of this evening figuring out how to incorporate the GoBrix motors into the base. Luckily, it's pretty easy to find 3...

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

How about the Hand of Omega casket from "Remembrance of the Daleks?" :) That's a good one. I'll add it to the list. Somebody on here created a really excellent Hand of Omega custom a while ago that looked like it may have been 3D printed. I've also been looking at the Dalek Shuttlecraft f...

http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP025.JPG And so it begins... I've been working from the original blueprints, and while they're a godsend, it's interesting to note several areas where the designers went off in their own direction. Luckily, I've got lots of nice clean photos to go off of as ...

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

I have literally no idea why that Keller Machine even turned out at all. I'm worried about printing a second one in case it was a once in a lifetime fluke. :) I may make a TARDIS Tool Kit, Astral Map, Time Space Visualizer, Castrovalva Zero Room cabinet, and one or two other "larger than a brea...

http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP023.JPG http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP024.JPG Today was paint day for a bunch of my models. Most of these will be going up on eBay in about a month, so I figured I'd better make them look pretty. I'm especially impressed with how good the Servo ...

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

For anyone who downloaded the zip file with the Quark STL and Gcode files, I just made a major fix to make the model more screen accurate. Somehow, I failed to realize that the leg slots on the bottom went all the way through. http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/oops.JPG I've fixed the zip file I...

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

I honestly don't understand what half of it means, but I suppose I could do some googling and find out. :) It sounds like I could send him your ZIP file, and also tell him not to worry about the resolution issues. Yeah, basically, he's saying he has a home machine like mine, and the super-fine deta...

012 - Keller Machine Status: Untested, may need work. 3-D Printer template: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/8HGSQ86S32x I had to take a break from tinkering around with connectors that aren't connecting properly, so I built a Keller Machine from Mind of Evil . I haven't printed this one yet, but I...

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

By the way, the PLA plastic (that is, the cheapest) option also offers translucent green, translucent orange, and translucent yellow. Might be some potential there for, say, a Rutan? There will very likely be a Rutan at some point, but it's essentially just a glowy stringy blob. If I find a really ...
