I was looking for a toy designers club, and I've been unable to find any (other than ones with like 2 members). So I made my own. I like finding cool little things and printing them out, and designing toy is a really fun hobby for me. I figured there would be some like-minded individuals.
Here is the link to the group. I'd love to have you join us
I'm curious what filament types people are using to print gaming minis! They can be quite challenging prints with a combination of fine details, overhangs needing support, and small breakable bits.
I've mostly used Hatchbox and Makergeeks brand PLA..mostly because those are what I started with and have dialed in. The standard PLA from these brands has been very consistent for me. However I've never been able to get support that removes as cleanly as I'd like.
I also like the woodfill PLA from Hatchbox and the new Raptor PLA from makergeeks. The woodfill has a slightly grainy texture that makes print lines less visible, and support is easy to remove. Downside is it's a bit brittle. The Raptor PLA is advertised as high-strength, and thin parts hold up a lot better. Seems to need more attention to ooze control than regular PLA though.
So...anyone have some secret-sauce filament they'd like to share? :)
(I'm printing on a flashforge creator pro)
Hey Guys and Gals
I am currently working on printing a epic sized dungeon that I am looking to run at a charity event for my local childern's hospital. However, I am in need of some help with printing the parts. if you would like to help out with this you can contact me here and I will get back to you as soon as I can with the details. It is more that it big in the terms of the number of parts that need to be printed not in the size of the parts . You can find the first area of the dungeon @ https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1TgcAWKF6-AoA7-f0XABxHxunww9-FCdP?usp=sharing
