    Well downloaded from thingvers upgrades for volcanicus. Did a fdm print and sla print. Notice that got to lift the SLA print that way the holes in the back do not fill up. With the PLA same things. Trying to get a nice resin print to cast a mold. But will print again.

    Here are things. Might have to print them again. I think is missing small piece in the corner. But overall came out good.

    Those look great in resin. And I don’t think there’s anything missing on the leg pieces...there’s supposed to be a notch in the lower corner! Great job. Post more pics if you paint them!

    So 2/3 done I ran out of resin. Luckily the thigh got printed. The sword did not get finished but still salvageable for something. I ended putting both half of sword together to get one print. I did not like how the two separate sword printed. But always good the experiment. Going to try to see if I can joined the Bach and fron of chest pieces to print one piece. I did join one pair but something when I save only teeth show up.

    Last night lost power. So another bad print. But might be able to use it for battle damage.

    First attemp on making a mold and first prototype. Learn allot for the next time. Make sure add mold release and glue better on bottom. Got to spend quality time with son that was good. So this is what we got.

    Instead of using 3d printer, can use the mold to make another one.
