    This article explains a new resin printing method.  They’ve successfully printing a 2cm object at 80 microns in a few seconds.  The method prints the entire object at once rather than layer by layer.  This removes the need for supports.  Not sure how long until this becomes a mass market printer.  I reckon 3-5 years at least but who know!?

    Read all about it here.

    Very cool so in a few years we will be able to buy a 3D printed army pre-painted.  Technology is fantastic, soon I won’t have to paint my armies.  Which is good as I am rapidly approaching mid 60’s, more time for gaming.

    I still enjoy painting but am happy to print out the models to paint, even on my Ender-3.

    Which begs the question.  How’s the 3D printing coming Patrick/JozisTinMan?

    Tea, Earl Grey, hot. Oh, and a Mark II Matilda tank, 1/56 scale, colour Italian campaign 1944.

    With a lot more development that could be pretty cool.  Resolution isn’t all that great at the moment, and it will be pretty expensive at first (as it uses lasers instead of LEDs and the like).  I doubt there will be a whole lot of miniaturization of the equipment for quite a while, so make sure you have plenty of space available when this does come around!

    Hey John!  Sorry for the delay, I am swamped at work and still slogging through graduate school.

    I am still printing away much faster than I can paint, but tonight I am going to try to finish up a platoon of M26 Pershings that I scaled up to 1:150. I have also finished printing all the bits for my 10mm trench system and will start painting tonight too.  I did get my files posted up to Thingieverse, I cannot remember if I posted that fact here or not: https://www.thingiverse.com/JozisTinMan/designs

    And, I have bought Forward March Studios 2mm sets, we shall see where that takes me.

    I have also gotten in to printing pegboard holders for my tools in the garage…  I’ll try to get some stuff posted tonight!

    Trenches came out great!  So is 1:150 scale your chosen scale for 10mm figures?   I was wrestling with what scale to change to specifically for 10mm.  I’d always heard it was 1:144 but others have said that this was more like 12mm.

    @ kyote: Thanks!  I am homesick again today and slowly working through adding sand and priming prints.

     

    @ john: I went with 1:150 frankly because the math was easier when scaling from 1:200.  They seem to look pretty good next to my Pendraken size-wise, or at least close enough.  I am going to try to put decals on my first painted M26 Pershing prototype today, I’ll post pictures of them with my WW1 guys so you can see how they match up.
