@marsniper_27 seeing a Majora's Mask and Mario cookie cutter as projects for a 3D printer is an exceptional use of resources.  Well done! :) 

The mask was for someone else. I have not made anything for my self yet. But i have made all my money back on the cost of the printer and material so now investing in some upgrades and then it will be just profit for future commission work.

I work in a place with over 100 nerds when i mentioned the 3d printer they started asking for things so I willing obliged. I am excited to get the stuff i have to do for people done so i can make some of the items i want. Or maybe i will just need to get a second printer....

Worst case, you tune your technique on their stuff so you're an ace when you get to doing things for yourself.

Love his pose. I'm reminded of a few teenagers I teach. I could not help but notice your reflection in the background.

Dang I try to be so careful.

Here are just some other recent prints

Designed and printed bases for 20mm modern soldiers.

Designed and printed simple buildings for the 20mm soldiers (detailed ones to come later these were to check scaling).

Found an awesome minotaur so had to print him.

Printed a drop ship from battletech for a guy at work.

Made more progress on the nearing year long project for someone.

Printed some vase mode terrain for 40k (completely hollow so barely any material). I really like this idea and will try to design some of my own.

Printed a merkava tank. This is just after getting the printer back together so a little rough.

Nice.  What do you use to clean off the fuzzies and smooth out surfaces?

p.s.  Your avatar name makes more sense now that I see what you are printing/painting.

Some heat will get rid of the fine strings I just steal the wife's hairdryer. And then some sandpaper and small files to help with anything else. When I have the printer dialed in better there is little that needs cleaning. 

 

Ya I have been a wargamer since I was like 12 also I have always been a good shot.

I've only gone shooting once.  I had a ball, but didn't dare keep a gun in the house.  Too much temptation to shoot the ex.

Don't have any actual firearms myself but do have paintball and airsoft and pellet guns.

I've always wanted to shoot my sisters with a paintball gun.  Multiple times.

It is quite fun. My wife use to play paintball with us. But we haven't played since we moved (10 years ago). We had a group of friends and played on a private field so it's hard to get the same kind of atmosphere at a commercial place. That's when I switched to airsoft cause there was a better community around it but that got a bit ruined by a few members and I haven't played that in a couple years either. Some day I will get back into it it's good exercise running through the woods for 8 hours.

 

As for 3d printing I ran out of PLA (the standard filament I use) so I haven't been printing anything for gaming but I have some petg so I have been printing parts to make a CNC machine and a t placement butting for an arcade game (stop the clock) and a mount for the kill switch on the dirtbike.

As much as I like doing gaming prints it's satisfying to do some practical stuff as well

Wish I had a 3D printer. The prices have dropped over the years. Maybe in a few more years it will affordable for me. I have brought a few 3D printed miniatures. I have noticed none of them are completely smooth on the sides, but have faint streaks. I was warned about this on the product pages before I brought them. With a good paint job, my 30 tombstones I brought cheap look good.  It would be nice if the streaks could be removed from 3D printing...or perhaps it depends on the printer and material used. I don't know enough about 3D printers yet.
