Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

But that isn't the only thing I've been working on. I also finished painting and assembling the Mk. VII Robotic Cleaner , plus my custom of Turlough (built off the Primeval James Lester figure, as others have done). http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP267.JPG http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_...

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

I finished printing and painting this year's April Fool's Day figure. With two whole days to spare. Go team me. It didn't turn out quite as well as it could have (mainly due to some unfortunately timed printer issues that I'm still waiting on parts to fix), but I suppose I should be grateful I got a...

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

The Brain Machine?! Do you mean the Keller Machine, from Mind of Evil ? Because I already did that one. (Not even as an April Fools prank.) http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP243.JPG The only other brain machines I can think of would be the giant brain from Time And The Rani , the mind wrest...

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

April Fools? Yep. Last time you got the Taran Wood Beast. I promise this year is equally as thrilling. :| Can I try to guess? Um.... Fifi from "The Happiness Patrol?" No. Though I do plan on creating another figure from The Happiness Patrol at a later date, once I've got a few more things off my pl...

Well, I just created figure #31 in one night (#30 isn't actually done yet) but you guys don't get to see it for another 26 days.

That's probably the only hint some of you need.

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

Hot Damn! Less than 24 hours after I posted the file links and somebody's already fully printed one! Good news, it looks like all the moving parts work *and* it can stand upright (well, crouch) without falling over. Something I wasn't 100% sure of. All in all, I'd say that was a pretty big win. I'm ...

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

If I may ask, how did you model and split up the joints? I came up with some designs through trial and error. Surprisingly, there wasn't much out there premade. Everybody else seems to be using ball joints which look awful, unless you split every body part down the middle and glue them together aro...

Re: 3D Printing Doctor Who - Print and paint your own 5.5" scale customs

Looks awesome! What is the copper wire you use for these, again? They're small brass rods used for model airplane making. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Round-Brass-Rod-Diameter-Engineering/dp/B01C6LUO5Q They're easy to find on both sides of the pond, and I like them because they wont break or bend, but ...
