    Fiberglass V Resin V 3Dprint?

    My $0.02: Fiberglass is the most durable materal for a trooping bucket. Both resin and 3D print will look nice, but one drop to the concrete (and we've ALL done it!) and it could crack or shatter like glass! With that said, NOT ALL FIBERGLASS IS EQUAL. Remember, this is going to cover your...

    Need some help modelling a Batman Cowl.

    May I add my $0.02 here? Both Latex and Urethane are wonderful materials and make good cowls. But lets not put cart before horse on the first try. This is the first try, right? For your first try, let's cover the process rather than the finished piece. BTW, if you want to go with 3D...

    War Machine from IM2: a Collaboration Between Thorssoli and Clonesix

    I remember this thread! This has been slow going but almost done with all the parts. I have recently finished the gauntlet molds, and except for the chest/back, we have most of the parts to start assembling this beast.

    ED-209 1/12 Scratch Build WIP

    Sweet, but I read the title as "1/2" and not "1/12", and am sad that it isn't 4' tall. It is beautiful. Did you draw these yourself, and are there any plans to share ?

    Using Wood For Epoxy Resin Mold?

    I don't understand what you tried to say. I am going to guess that you want to cast (polyurethane) resin into the wooden form that is in the picture. You mentioned that you are going to "coating it " with polyurethane. Is that to seal the wood? or for the casting of the part? My...

    Make mold of 600 piece model kit?

    Hi Scratcher, I wanted to tackle the first question and say Yes, it is possible, but not practical. The molding of all those pieces would be a nightmare in time and money. I could answer better if there were a photo of the kit. suggestion 1: as stated above, hire a builder. (not easy. be...

    3D printing a 1:1 Terminator T-800 endoskeleton

    The staging of this photo showed me just how fragile PLA is, and I need to try ABS.

    3D printing a 1:1 Terminator T-800 endoskeleton

    Weight? I can pick up and carry the whole thing easily. My guess is 10 kg at this point. I am seeing the error of my design. 1. The pivot joints at the bicep an shin are weak and wont stand much stress. I will replace them with metal bolts and bearings to assure that nothing breaks easily...

    3D printing a 1:1 Terminator T-800 endoskeleton

    I have been having printer issues. I replaced a bearing and I thought that fixed the problem, but not I am again getting bird's nests, and not fine prints. I need to do so calibration before I can risk more filament on the lower legs. I have also learned the strength of the PLA prints. They...

    Heatproof Moulding Material

    Amirth, welcome to the forum. Many questions can be answered here if you know what you are looking for, and know how to write your question. I had to read you post several time to understand what you are asking. It appears to me that you are asking how to make a face cast, onto which you...

    3D printing a 1:1 Terminator T-800 endoskeleton

    I am no expert, but as compared to my Sideshow endoskull, Yes, it is by up to 10 mm. As I complete the whole structure, I will see about making modifications. Right now, I am slowly getting pieces off the printer. The parts look very nice thus far and I haven't had any printing problems...

    3D printing a 1:1 Terminator T-800 endoskeleton

    After a brief delay, while I hunted for a metric roller bearing, my printer is up and running. I printed the pelvis in two halves and soon this thing will stand! I am thus far quite impressed with how well the files print and the detail that I am getting. As I continue to complete the parts...
