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

I'm curious to see that to-do list. As am I. It's the 3rd post on the first page of this thread: http://doctorwhotoys.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=14#p156 As well as on the project website: https://www.3dprintingdoctorwho.com/todolist.html The list is somewhat fluid as technology improves and I h...

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

Nice! Have you considered making a dalek console from The Dead Planet? Maybe at some distant point in the future, but props aren't as much my thing, especially as I've still got well over 50 monsters left on my to-do list. There are a couple of designers in my facebook group though which are starti...

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

I've ended up with almost zero free time over the last several weeks, but my printer has been busy while I've been sidelined with other problems. I finally got around to printing the Toymaker’s Robot, and a slightly revised Servo Robot, but I’m still having trouble fine tuning joints and slot-in par...

Re: Best way to make/buy TARDIS interior walls?

I'm pretty sure a 3D printer is going to be almost universally cheaper than a laser cutter. If you make one wall out of something (have it 3D printed or make it yourself out of material that won't sag or dissolve in liquid, you could use it to create a silicon mould, that could then be used to creat...

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

http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP231.JPG I am now 99.99% done with painting. Unfortunately, I just realized I didn’t print the tiny little brass lamp shade for the banker's light (either that, or I lost it.) Of course, this piece attaches to the single most fiddly part of the console. Sinc...

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

http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP229.JPG The Siraya Tech flexible resin tests were a success, though sadly, the degree of flexibility is inversely proportional to the thickness of the part. A 50/50% mixture seems to be the highest I can go before the part starts becoming see-through, and e...

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

Some successes and several failures printing within the last week. I've got a trio of Capaldi guitars and a gloriously bright and shiny Dalek Transmat to show for my efforts, but not much else that managed to stay in one piece. http://www.strangecult.com/sa/who_toys/WIP225.JPG http://www.strangecult...

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

How big do you anticipate the sonic sunglasses being when it's all over? Is there a danger of them being too small to print? I doubt they will print on anything but a resin printer, but they printed fine for me. I intend to give them another go very shortly once my current print job is done. In oth...

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

Some cool stuff here. Something I wondered was do you have any plans to 3d print a two doctors style sontaran gun, now that there is a styke figure with no gun? Just interested to know if that was something you were going to do. I will very likely end up doing that at some point.... That point bein...

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

Back from a brief vacation, and I've now got black resin in the Anycubic printer. After 48 hours, I've had a mix of successes and failures. First order of business was to reprint the destination cylinders, which look gorgeous , and the white lettering turned out perfect. After a few false starts I l...
