    The Fort Max hands are complete. Better guns, more detail all around. Rather than try to find a matching blue I just went black.

    I also made some simple plugs for the screw holes in his crotch, those holes bugged me a lot.

    I've put ramps on the back burner for now. The radar dish idea is changing up a bit, you can see it on his leg in the above pic. The hands/plugs kit is available now for $30, lead time is about a week due to the hours and hours it takes to make a set of hands.

    And yes, everything else is still available. Always will be until the printer blows up, I run out of plastic or I just get sick of making them.

    How much would you think it would come out in total for a Jetfire filler set+ shipping to Israel?

    No, and I have no plans to ever have one.

    $16 USD. I've found cheaper shipping options.

    Oh, well the parts are well designed but they're a bit low quality. That's my only complaint.

    Ouch. Dude, you're hitting below the belt with a comment like that. You could've left it at the Shapeways thing.

    I have his Jetfire filler kit, it's very well made, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    Apologies. Perhaps I should be more specific. I was not referring to the design; they look awesome.

    I was referring to printer quality. I like the designs and want the hands, but the printer detail seems a bit 'liney'.

    You can try an acetone vapor bath. That's what I'm thinking of doing with the Metroplex Upgrade kit when I pick it up.

    I can do virtually line-free prints - unfortunately the only way to get line-free prints means the parts takes 3-4 times as long to print. Right now a single hand takes about 3.5 hours of printer time at .2mm resolution. Multiply that by a factor of 3 or 4 and I'm no longer interested in selling them for a reasonable price. Tiny parts, sure I can try for the absolute best quality, but giant hands for giant toys, no.

    Personally, I'll take some lines on the finish over a gritty sandpaper finish that costs at least twice as much as I charge from Shapeways. I've gotten a few things from shapeways before and I always get the same feeling when I handle them, which is ICK.

    If the lines really bother, you can always give the parts a light sanding/polishing, or the vapor bath (that I still haven't experimented with).

    Tell me more about this...vapour bath...

    (Also sorry if I came across as rude. Your designs are great, but the lines have always been a problem with 3D printing for me)

    Basically you heat acetone and suspend the parts in the vapor for a minute or so. If you do it right it smooths the lines completely flat, but it can be messy, easy to screw up, and slightly dangerous/toxic.

    This might be too much work for too little reward, but have you considered a new attachment/terminal piece for the Metroplex ramps that will connect to the various Titans Return bases?

    That would be easy, but they're already designed to all join together so why bother?
