  1. British Bully split test

    Another bully sculpt, now I have American, British and French... was experimenting with zero retractions speed increases and the placements of the slice and how well they stuck together after. Doing a tutorial for the glueing, acetoning, filler and finishing for this. part one is done.
    model available now for download.

  2. Another Thing

    Kmanstudios mentioned one of my last prints reminded him of the head from the 'The Thing' with the tentacles so as a result of not getting it out of my head I did a quick sculpt and ended up with this, have no idea why the two sides didn't join up correctly, but I admit i didn't pay attention to the settings when i did it and may have got the scale wrong when printing it as well. I guess I need to pay more attention when cutting up objects, but its good practice for joining two parts in a way to avoid seeing the seam!

  3. Plate Test Girl no.2

    Just another plate test after thinning my paint seeing if it still works and cleaning my copper sulphate solution through activated carbon and filtering it after. Seems to work ok but still broke in a few places because I was very rough with the wire brush which i should not have really used and just stuck to the wire wool, but it was very difficult to get into the part under the hair... Patina stages also shown. Really like the detail in the hair.

  4. Tigris Plate test

    Lots of pics...
    Just a quick attempt at acid plating on a failed model (split) after a break from it. but it failed because the copper I'm using is of a different grade than it should be and it just goes weird. Still learning here, just dug up my airbrush from 15 years ago and it still works!!! silver coated before electro bath and voltage was probably too high too. Im gonna try brush plating next. Due to the complete contamination of both copper and solution, a decent plate is not possible anymore but ill keep going till I get nothing.
    Gonna do a vid/thread later about this but i need to figure out whats going wrong first!

  6. Zombie Friend

    Just a test to try to calibrate my settings to how they worked best for me. I thought my coupler was dying but it was just an end of roll issue before. Only dipped for 25 secs then sprayed, should have gone 35. Oh well next print next time!
    I used Citadel Codex White spray paint for those interested, Its one of my favs goes on thin and dries almost instantly. Shame its matte. I have others for a smoother surface finish but they take longer to apply. Ill do a comparison vid about that soon....next year..lol.

  8. American Bully

    A test sculpt of my friends dog.... still trying to get my UM2 back to spec. Didnt realise the 35W heater needed a PID alteration or something, but hopefully I'll have that sorted and will be back to making near flawless prints. No closeups here because they are not worthy of closeups.

  9. Hair test subject

    Was going to use this for my galvanising tutorial as I modelled it to be tall and thin so that it fits into my beaker of copper sulphate, but my printer is not working correctly after a refurb effort, Im still currently trying to resolve the yo-yo up and down temperature issue as it causes quite severe lines on the surface of the model even though it looks OK from afar...... not touching the fan base, and sensor appears to be pushed all the way, will fiddle around for a while before I ask for help.....again, lol.

  11. Carbon Freeze fun

    Just a fun quick over-extrusion mess around, i didn't spend long on this because i'm giving it to a mate(the guy in it) who is a starwars fan as a gift, and i dont think he'll care about the fingers, i may try it without over extrusion to see if the fingers come out better.

  12. Alien face (failed print)

    This is an Alien face that printed kinda wrong for some weird reason, no acetone treatment yet, but i was really happy with the details especially the teeth. Should look great after a acetone bath!

  15. Bully Trophy from Bullseye

    Just a mock up of a Bullseye trophy minus the dart, only really found two pictures on the internet of it so but am fairly happy with it as it was just for fun. Fixing the messed up print on the other hand was not fun. I am very stubborn though, but next time I'm just gonna print the damn thing again!
    There was a hole in the mouth so when i acetoned it, it split because it got inside! the legs did not split. I also forgot to add the button in the splitter!! Oh well ill add them in the next one.
    Loads of pics to see the madness I went through just to finish it!

  17. My work colleagues

    Havenst posted here in a while, but just a bunch of rough quick prints of the team of people I work with, all made with remake or memento or whatever, shame they discontinued the mac version as it was free! lol no more, will have to find a new quick method now. Photoscan is a lot longer than rekmake. Then sprayed with various undercoat brands of paint for experimentation. will post a few close ups if I have them as I've given all these to their respective selfs.

  18. Painted 1986 Unicron

    I reprinted my unicron model because I felt like painting it, but seeing as I haven't painted minatures in like 25 years i'm not that good anymore the acetoning was also too much and it cracked after spraying for some reason, but it serves its purpose. will do one with led eyes and a battery next after some remodelling.
    ive been away too long and feel like i need to start over.....:(

  22. Evil Queen

    A favourite of my latest print tests. Really enjoyed distressing this one, was going to buff polish it, but left it like this because I liked it so much. I can always polish it later if need be!

  23. Tigris of Gaul

    Sorry for the lame photo, but I demolished this one experimenting on it a few hours later, lol. Obviously from the Gladiator movie, not perfect but you get the drift. Might do a moving version, if i have time, but this one is all one print, no gluing or construction.

  24. Groovy hand mk2

    A hollowed out revised version of the groovy hand now mk2 with details removed to see what it could look like, almost finished the enable version which is basically just new fingers and a revised raptor reloaded main hand. Making cool working hands with fingers and even the prosthetic ones is very time consuming and difficult due to all the joins and width limitations i'm learning a lot of things on the mechanical side of things which is interesting, I had to compromise a lot compared to simple sculpts. The pinky is overlapping in this print but I threw a patina on it as it makes it look older and cooler in my opinion.
    Another Colorfabb Dutch Orange for those interested. printed with 0.8 shell which is my new norm compared to 1.2, and hollow with supports. pics above.
