Featured Thing!

Description

Introducing Pocket-Tactics! A fast-paced, modular strategy board game that all fits in a tiny bag!

This expansion provides a new faction that can be played against any of the current sets. The unit stat sheets and special rules pdf for this faction can be found here, though for the full rules sheet, visit either of the starter sets here: thingiverse.com/thing:41740 or here: thingiverse.com/thing:45269

This set goes out to Thingiverse user cerberus333 http://www.thingiverse.com/cerberus333/designs so a massive thank-you for letting me use his awesome models! Go check out his extremely prolific collection of designs asap.

Couldn't upload multiple derivative links, so here's all the models that went into this set:

Great job! This is cool. I am printing these on my Afinia using white ABS on a borosilicate glass plate, no raft, with double-sided duct tape on the glass. It is looking good so far. I too want to try single pieces and let the computer try the support. I will let you know how it goes. I will try to paint these.
Any way to get these where they are not parted down the middle? I would rather deal with support material generation than ABS warping and superglue.

what program are yall using to design the 3d models? is it the maker program from makerbot or is it one of the other design programs? just wondering cause some of the items ive looked at have metal parts such as music boxs and such and as far as i knew 3d printers are mainly plastic (though i have found some places that print in metals)
Oh, and as for the printer, I print in ABS (or PLA, when I can) on a Makerbot Replicator. No metal parts, sadly. I know Shapeways does silver and stainless steel, but (for now) you need a fancy shmancy industrial machine for that.
Well, we were using a combination of TinkerCAD, Blender, and Sculptris, though TinkerCAD is going the way of the dodo, so we're moving entirely to a Blender/Sculptris joint. Actually though, most of these models were designed by cerberus333 (link is in the text above). Go check his stuff out, its amazing. He mostly uses Sculptris to make the models.
Make a "Settlers of Catan" expansion kit with your hexes.
Can you paint PLA? I've never tried.
Hey, thanks man! Yeah, you can absolutely paint PLA. Most of my stuff I've posted here has been in PLA, including my 54mm models, Breach, and a couple of PT sets. Also, with PLA, you dont often get the extrusion lines because it kind of melts them into the surface. Problem is, PLA wears my machine out pretty quick, and I only get 1 in every 3 or so prints to finish. Oh what I wouldn't give for a Rep 2!
We are using a Replicator Dual and the PLA is also wearing our machine out. What seemed to help for a while was to reduce the printing speed. Although maybe its just the hope to get it fixed easily that clouds my observations. Maybe this helps: makerbot.com/support/replicator/documentation/maintenance/ (Replacing the plunger)
Hey, thanks, man! I'll have to try lower speeds, and yeah, I'm on to the plunger replacement. I think I'm on my 6th or 7th plunger now :-P I was ordering the delrin replacements, though now I'm totally on board with printing my own. Can't recommend that route highly enough. Not sure if it works in PLA, but I've been printing ABS plungers for a while. Gotta get back on the PLA. It is the dream material.....

Thanks, man!
I would love to see a tutorial on how these things are painted. They look amazing.
same here! I am making a 0.3mm nozzle to be able to print these :D would love to be able to paint them even a 10th as well as they look here :)
Thank you very much. Yeah, I've been meaning to put a general tutorial together, I should probably include the painting part as well. Thanks for the suggestion!
Nicely done!
The models came out at really nice at that scale.
the paint job as usual is excellent.
Thanks for using the models, I am glad to see them used for new stuff.
Thanks, Perry, glad you approve! I had a blast converting these to PT pieces. I already have another set in mind that uses another series of your designs... I'll run it by you soon here....
