3D Printing Replacements

Postby Meet The Pyro » Friday September 20th, 2019 9:29am

Hi,
I've been searching the internet for both replacements and models from the expansions.
Issue being a lot of the stuff I find is pretty low quality (especially for the expansions).
Can anyone offer me better files to work with, or has anyone found better variants of what I've found.

I've compiled everything I've found here
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-ts ... sp=sharing

They don't really have to be the originals, alternatives are also fine, but I can't model properly, so it'd have to be ones that fit in and have a matching base :P
Models for the many non-official quests that have extra characters are also welcome.


Here are some photos, keep in mind that both the resin, but especially the FMD (Ender 3) looks way better in real life (and you just wouldn't look this up close when you're just using them on a board either :P)
These are Original - Resin - FDM (Ender 3) Note that I only very recently started resin printing, and thus the defects visible are me that failed to support it properly for the most part, if not every issue you can notice

Since I don't know of a way to show more pictures without it feeling super spammy (spoilers don't work for the IMG tag?), here's a link to a shared album, if anyone wants to see more: https://photos.app.goo.gl/vN8NJU7pcPuyyT6w7

That one was resin printed with the Elegoo Mars, resin is great for details, but I've had pretty good results with my Ender 3 as well

I'm strongly thinking that I will get an Ender 3 for xmas this year. As nice as the results are from a resin printer, I don't want all the hassle that comes with them.

Honestly while the process with resin is a bit more messy, I feel like there's way less work to do after the print, it's way easier to remove supports with resin :P
But the Ender 3 is definitely a good choice.

I'll be posting more photos at a later time :D

Is there a way to add attachments here, I can't seem to see it, guess I can just link to it /shrug

I've updated my opening post, more photos, and some comparisons between original, resin, and FDM (ender 3) prints

Well these guys are primed and ready (I'm a cheapskate and blue was cheaper when I purchased this stuff lol)
Unfortunately, I found all my painting stuff except my pallet thingies to actually put my paint on rip.

this is why I only use my 3d printer for furniture and terrain.
Do you need some form of an out of the house exhaust for the resin printer?
I heard they can emit toxic fumes
