These were pretty tough to print, but, a little effort and modification in Blender did the trick! Great job making these!
can you post your mods of what you fixed?
Could you tell us what paint you used to paint these? Yours in the picture look fantastic. I did print one and it is a beautiful print for sure; now I'm hooked on finishing the set. Thanks
Hello. I just used regular acrylic paint. I printed them with black PLA so the dark areas deep in the model are already shaded.
Just wondering if anyone's printed these using Slic3r? The one I printed looked like the supports melded into the model, what a mess!
No clue. I used Cura and the combine all. These models aren't really super printer friendly, so you'll need some supports left inside to keep it all together
Could you post the modified version so i could print them too?
Hello. I don't see why not. But, honestly to get the same effect all you need to do is in Cura you have the "combine all" option turned on in the expert settings and you should be able to print them fine :-)
did you have any trouble printing these?
Yeah I did. But, when you lay them on their backs and have the combine all option on in Cura they come out fine. Oh and supports. Lots of them :-)
