Re: Good STL files for fdm 3d printer

Those minis on that page look quite fuzzy to me. Don't know if it is the original sculpt or just the stl


The original models are smaller than the 4 main characters. smaller bodies, smaller hands/feet, smaller heads. This is probably while I've always prefereed the Barbarian QP figures to the Elf ones.
Plus the scan is not the best, they miss lot of details on the faces.
Which 3D printer you get?

The Photon S has had a special offer.

Now I am fighting model supports. Tried to print the four heroes as they are on the front cover... missed half the model.
Added some supports, now I can't get the model out of the supports.

I am also interested in good quality models for the elf expansion. I have a friend with an Ender 3 that prints minis for me. The springer files are not good scans. Some creators on thingiverse have started to fix older scans of the expansions and added detail to them. What quality you want for your game is up to you though. I've had some thingiverse Ogres printed that aren't super detailed, but they did come out good for me. You could see the small details of the shirt buttons.

I'm envious of the resin printer, Anderas!

I know a guy who claims to have them done but doesn't want to share. *roll eyes*

I am on the search for the furniture skulls and rats. Can't find them easily on thingyverse

I've currently printed the 4 heroes, 12 goblins, and have 11 orcs in print (3 days 12 hrs to print).
As soon as I find a good site to put my images on, I will post them here.

In case anyone is curious, I have a Creality CR-10 and a set of extra nozzles from 0.2mm up to 1.0mm.
I'm using the 0.2mm nozzle with a 0.08mm layer height and a coworker admitted my fdm prints are close enough to his resin prints to make him consider a new fdm printer.

I am using an ender 3 pro at .12 layer height. I have the printer VERY dialed in though. I bought a resin printer and am waiting for it to get here to print the rest. quality should be about on par with the originals. Will try to remember to report back

How so? They look correct to me and these models were created from 3d scans of the originals and then cleaned up.

Those look great, of course a shot next to some original versions would be nice. How is the material? Brittle?
