My 3D prints are in!



Just got to get them home and check the scale and how they match up!

Ooh! Very nice!

Keep us posted on when we can get hold of a set of these! :D

Those look absolutely great.
Hope they scale nicely.

Scale looks good for most! C&C?

Looks great :D Although shapeways "frosted" (objet 30 pro vero clear)  is a pain to make moulds from with it's frosted surface texture. Really reduces mouldlife when casting. You will want to give them a solid coat of primer before mouldmaking to help with this.

Or next time send them this way and will do some higher resolution prints for you, free if you send a few casts :D like we did with Legio Destructor's guns :)

Now this is where my inexperience with 3D printing will show, I did not make these guns, I used shapeways to find an artist who had done all the work already in 28mm and then sweet talked him into up scaling them in 54mm. Discussions are ongoing about how he wants to manage (he is doing some re-sizing so they scale even better!) these but I never expected to get the 3D models as I didn't pay him on commission to make them. I have a few future 54mm things that are on commission that I will own though.

It occurs to me that I actually have a heap of weapon meshes ripped from the various WH40K computer games. While they'd need some refinement for printing (computer game models rely more on texturing and shading than actual mesh detail), I should consider taking a look at those.

Yep, you probably should :)
I like that the 54mm arsenal is increasing all of a sudden

Ditto.
I have a love of plasma, and a sudden and fortuitous looking potential source thereof.

Hey, so I've fallen in love.

What do we need to go about doing to get hold of some of these? I'd be looking to pick up two or three sets at least, maybe putting money down for any future 54mm stuff you do. I have access to a couple of 3d printers (and the requisite nerds to operate them) if that helps?

Fab, thanks! I'm putting in order today, I look forward to seeing how they scale up on some of my projects :)

Do you have plans to do more?

Yep, more are coming! There should be a scout style shotgun (same as the metal one but just more easily available), Armageddon style autogun and hotshot lasgun (stormtrooper style) coming next then a few more bit further down the line

AWESOME! I'll have to grab some of those. Maybe a couple of sets :D

You/he has done a Boltgun/Boltpistol/Laspistol set before. Any plans to re-do that?
