MBT's Shapeways TF weapons thread

Here's an updated first page of my stuff.

Another custom "Target Cohort", Hijack. He transforms from bot to shotgun. As always the model will need to be tested before it's made available for sale. He is a two part kit. Hijack the bot is here . You can find his Gun is here.

Ion Centrifuge Cannon:
The name might be farfetched, but this cannon is too. A massive heavy weapon for your DX and Voyager sized figures. When the reactor shields are opened the centrifuge can spin on a axle.

Dropshot, custom mini-con target master. For now It's an experimental model, I'll make it available once I've worked the bugs out.

Shapeways page here Drop shot by Tom.B on Shapeways
once I get my model and verify that it works I'll make it available for sale.









Another custom side-arm style weapon, similar the the pea-shooter and the Crusader, the Pop-gun. A small pistol that changes into a knife.
NOW AVAILABLE. Here's Part A, and Part B.









My first custom figure Blockhead!! Blockhead can be found here: Blockhead -No Guns- by Tom.B on Shapeways his guns are here: Blockhead's Guns by Tom.B on Shapeways









LED spot lamp, a versatile lamp to help with TF or miniature photography, features an articulated arm, and a ball-joint hood. Perfect for getting highlights on smaller details. This is a DIY heavy project.







The Crusader. A big gun that transforms into an even bigger sword. Perfect for your Transformer Prime: Optimus Prime figures. First edition or RID. It even has a second handel made just for the Reveal the Shield DX Laser Prime. The crusader is sold in two parts, PART A, the gun parts. And PART B the blade parts. The blades will only work with the FUD material. Left handed version has been uploaded. Part-A Lefty, Part-B Lefty










The Ultra Magnum is now available! I received my sample and the gun assembles and works as planned.

The iconic Plasma Cutter from Dead Space 2! I took it off hold, so it's now available again. If you receive a poor quality print, don't hesitate to complain to Shapeways customer support!

Good golly those look great!

How would you be casting these? It seems you could lose a lot of detailing if you're just using a simple 2-part mold.

Not sure yet really, I really would like to sell these but the shapeway prices are a bit too high. If I re-casted them myself I could sell them for far less. The Cannon model will cost $70 for the ultra detail print!

I guess what I meant is, if your designs have radial detailing, you won't be able to get all of it cast with a 2-part mold. You'd have to design your weapons to be simple extrusions.

I think I'm doing a bad job explaining this.

i thinik the last weapon might be an issue for a 2 part mold

but the first two i dont, it all depends on the orentation of the part in the mold


oh and your designs are gorgeous by the way

I Still Function!!!!!!!!

Ahh. I haven't done much recasting forgive my ignorance.

I see you've done a lot of shapeway accessories, in your opinion whats the best martial to have weapons made out of?

Nothing to forgive! I don't do any casting myself, but I try to keep in mind how it could be done with certain parts.

I imagine ultra detail would be ideal for making molds, but you'd likely still want to hand polish the parts a little; the printing layers are going to be very fine, but still visible.

I think it's worth trying polished strong and flexible too, since it's inexpensive and gives a much more uniform finish than the detail materials. The only downside is that the details aren't so crisp, so it might be better if you're just selling weapons from Shapeways.

I'll make them available to everyone then. I haven't gotten my samples back so I don't know how good they will turn out.

saw ur conversations & i think it s brilliant to re-cast them. design gorgeous, i luv the details. but price is more critical.

for $70 (i guess US, rite?) per piece is killing them. besides, dun forget the mailing fee wht Shapeways been added. the sum will just like burning hell.

p.s. wht i thinking that is how abt weapons for new wave TF Prime figures? it could be much more potential.

Your designs are very cool and well, awesome! I'd like to see more.


It seems like the golden fountain that was shapeways is drying up with how expensive the designs are considering our own markup for personal designs.
