    Nice work Macraptron! If you did this same head in scale with attachments for Binaltech Arcee I would totally buy it at the right price. Sure I'm not the only one either as that head was fugly.

    Nice idea Mako! This should look good on a repainted TFA Arcee, with proper G1 colors. Now I gotta find an extra. :D

    Looking superslick! Still not really sure if Animated Arcee's body is fitting enough to fit in with G1-esque characters, but with this head it will give people a great way to come close. :) 

    Are you going to upload some pictures of an eventual modded Arcee with this head?

    Definitely looking forward to seeing this done. It looks great and I can definitely use one on my TFA Arcee. Keep up the great work, man.

    Nice one, Mako - been looking forward to seeing you do something like this, and that Arcee head is spot-on. Can't wait to see how the print turns out, especially with the light-piping! :thumb

    Arise Serpentor!!! Great job Makoto. Love to see you back in the 3D game. So this Shapeways thing is really catching on?!? I haven't done any 3D printing in about 5 years. Sounds like I should get back into it. Last time I tried I always had problems when they imported my files. Any tips on that?

    Every time I try to upload a mesh I get errors about manifold errors. I presume I just have sloppy meshes. And I can never figure out what the issues are. I guess that's why I gave up on this printing stuff in the first place.

    I'll give the modifier a try. I usually use polygonal modeling. At least I used to. I don't do much modeling at all any more. Thx.

    Actually, manifold error can be a ton of different issues. It can be something as a simple a hole in your mesh, to too many polygons connected to the same point/vertice. You can have just one of those issues, or a combination. Depending on how you model, you will either not get these issues, or you always will.

    That did the trick! Thanks. Had a number of errors. Then I was having a ton of scale issues. Shesh. Finally got a scale that worked, although I don't know how, and it would cost me $50 for a 3" tall design. I know you are paying based on volume but this doesn't seem any cheaper then it was 5 years ago.

    Let us know how yours turns out Makoto and let us know what you paid.
