Very cool. I’m surprised you got away with so little support on the yari.
They look more realistically proportioned than usual 6mm.
Do your supports come out of the print like that or did they bend after curing?20/05/2022 at 10:50 #173339
Mike, I tried them every way up. I was having problems with getting the raft to stay attached to the build plate.
Thomaston. That was the source of my problem. My usual resin made excellent prints of the little lighters, unfortunately because they were so small and brittle they broke too easily.
I switched to Anycubic Flexible and Tough, and I’ve been dicking about with the settings to produce viable prints. Finally I got those three, later reduced to two when I took them off the build plate, dropped them and crushed him to death attempting to catch them.
The lack of supports isn’t a problem, the prints are so small and light.

My comment about the support wasn’t about the size/weight, but warping. I’m surprised by how straight the spears came out despite having almost no support. Looking at how the main supports are bent I was expecting models to shift during printing.
Getting raft to attach to buildplate sounds like burn layer setting?
Also recently I’ve had a series of failed prints when I lowered the lift height after each layer. All other settings were the same and it printed fine when I went back to old lift height setting.20/05/2022 at 14:53 #173351
My reply was to your comment about the spears. They’re great figures, much less blocky than 6mm metal, but you have to use flexible resin and even then they’re fragile. They’ll be better when based though.
The supports from the raft deformed while printing, but the figures were fine.
I was fiddling about with the lift height and layer thickness with the raft, decreasing the former and increasing the latter. Finally got it.

I learned fluent Japanese by reading Commando books.
“Banzai!”, “By Shinto!” and “Aiiieeeeeeee!” will cover any situation you find yourself in.
And with that, I depart from this forum. Live happy, one and all!

They (the ashigaru) look really good,.
Given the nause involved in getting them right however, plus the health issues Darkest Star was outlining, I think I’ll let someone else make ’em and just buy the little beggars!
I admire your perseverance and moral fortitude.20/05/2022 at 17:47 #173376

Printer resin is a different beast than casting resin. Its main hazards are contact dermatitis and chemical asthma. Well ventilated it’s not a major issue, using the cupboard under the stairs as your workspace is going to cause problems.
One day, all 3D printers will come ready set up and with built-in parameters for every sort of resin. Until then faffing about is unavoidable, although some 3D slicers have general settings for some resins that you can tweak.
