Some barrels (in two sizes thus far) for fantasy tabletop gaming or dioramas. Shown with some Reaper miniatures to give an idea of scale. Enjoy!

These guys were printed on my Makerbot Replicator at a .10 layer height with %100 infill. Plate temp at 110 and extruder at 230. Painted with acrylic model paints.

I know its a bit sad. But this has been my first 100% successful print. and I'm jumping around the room like a little kid lol.

Thanks mate

Haha, no worries. That's a wonderful feeling. Congrats!

Took almost an hour to print two of them in 0.1mm but turned out almost perfectly. Some spots in the band sagged a little (no support).

That is sooooo cool. I can think of a thousand possible uses. :0)

I've had a few somewhat successful prints, but I am getting manifold errors in repetier. Any suggestions?

yeah you should run ti through http://cloud.netfabb.comcloud.netfabb.com, you just upload the broken file, type in your email and send it.
2 minutes later you get a mail with a link, click it and you can download your repaired file.

have fun!

Simply awesome. I'll probably print out at least 15 for our weekly games of Pathfinder. Soooo awesome.

Hey, thank you! Yeah, I need to make more pieces in this direction. I had planned on making a whole range of accessories, so maybe I should do that....

Did a little montage for you and these barrels. LOL enjoy!

Haha, dude, that's awesome!! Thanks for the credit. What kind of machine is that??

Series 1 from Type A Machines.

We've been using this file as a good test file for smaller features, like the studs, and testing the ability to print the bands with no support. Great looking stuff! Will post some finals once we are done.

We printed some 2d monkeys and threw them inside mid print for "monkeys in a barrel".

Oh, no kidding? I could see these being a good test print, for sure! I have a variant that;s hollow and has a lid. I should really get around to posting it. Haha, monkeys... that's a fantastic idea. Can't wait to see the pics!

Did you sand the model down at all? If not, have you tried? It looks really good.

I haven't actually. I bet that looks good! Post some pics!

Looks great! What paint do you use? Do you have to treat the surface with anything first?

Hey, thanks, man! I primed the barrels with a textured spray paint. I used to use Games Workshop primer, but its so expensive. I found that regular spray paint works just fine, and I prefer textured for non-organics. I think the stuff I used was Rustoleum brand. Thing is, I've hand-painted these things from the ground up, so I know they don't need it. Helps though. 

And after you've applied your rustoleum paint "primer", you use acrylics?

Yeah, I use Games Workshop paints, though any of the paints you find at a game shop should work. I really like the Vallejo and P3 brands. They're a little more affordable too. It is tough to beat GW's formula though.

I'm printing out a couple of these bad boys to apply some paints to tonight!

Awesome! Let me know how they turn out!

Incredible paint job! Really nice work.

Much appreciated!
