Scatter Terrain 9
Well my latest batch of prints arrived and they are a mixed bunch.
First off we have the Dragons Tooth. I split this into two parts, the body which was printed in WSF givings the rough concrete like texture and a plate printed in White Detail which dropped into a recess into the top of the toof.
Next up the pallets, overall happy how they turned out.
Top panels look good, treadplate nicely shows up and the skull hole works nicely.
In general the bases turned out well except for the ID plates on the side which were completely messed up.
The ID plates...
So I cut and sanded the ends down and attacked the areas with GS.
Just (literally) given them another coat of grey:
Next up we have the stores themselves. These look to be a write off to be honest. The surface texture on all of them is very rough and on the one barrel I have a 'sunken' area. Same thing happend with the first base pieces which Shapeways replaced. An email has been sent so hopefully a replacement set will turn out better.
You can't see it in the pic below but the crates were so rough they had actually started to split in places.
Gun Turret 6
So, where does this leave me regarding 3D printing and the Gun Turret? Well frankly it means I am not going to get it printed. The quality just isn't good enough unless I spend a small fortune getting it printed at a much better resolution.
This is a shame as the 3D model was shaping up nicely:
It still isn't finished but for now it is being put on hold.
