    I’m sorry to say no. I got sent out of town for work yesterday and had to work late...should be home tomorrow. Although, I have been thinking about the designs and have some additional ides as to how to refine them. Stay tuned. I should be able to have some stuff on Shapeways this weekend. I’m going to try to put together a Rainmakers Effects 6-pack to see if that helps to bring the per-unit cost down a little. Shapeways gets expensive sometimes.

    Maybe I will use that for the tip of Nova's effect.

    Not sure how this will print yet, might need to be done in pieces. My Printer is offline right now, so I wont be able to test until I fix it.

    Ya, its a very v1 prototype. 3D Printer software doesn't even wanna generate the code, the bolts are too thin.

    It does... I'm trying to envision what a Nova Storm attack looks like. I kept thinking Supernova and swirling and concentrated energy...and that's what came out. Lol. Got any ideas??

    Here's the basis for Acid Storm's effect. I know it looks kinda Sesame Street at the moment...but I'm going to Blender the shit out of it so it looks like a swirling foaming frothing bubbling blast of corrosive death. Stay tuned...

    I can't think of anything which really suits that but a cluster of drill missiles would be really cool

    Amazing job!

    Yeah, the blender will do that one a lot of justice.

    I was having some trouble contouring the rear "splash" portions of the effect, so, I remodeled it a bit and used some thorn-shaped things instead of flat pieces.

    I then exported to Blender...blended things...and imported back into Tinkercad to add some bubbly stuff. I'm going to noodle on this for a little bit. I need to do some additional arrangement and sizing work on the bubbles/foam/frothing so it looks more natural. Here's where I am right now.

    Thanks man. I'm going to try putting some multi-packs on Shapeways to see if it brings down the per-unit price any (not sure how their pricing algorithm works, exactly). Of course, if Shapeways isn't an option for you, these things will also be free to download from Thingiverse. I need to update the page, though. Sit tight!
