    This is an alternative Rebel Unit Leader from Skull Forge Studios.  Took about 3.5 hours on my Prusa i3mk3s.  I am exceedingly pleased with the results.

    There’s still a little cleanup to do, but it’s no worse than if you were getting a figure that you bought ready for painting.

    From an FDM printer, that’s  *very* nice.

    WOW! just WOW!

    You did an amazing job on that. What settings did you use?

    This is the profile I used.  I’ve gotten a handful of figures that look really good out of it, but about 1/3 of the attempts have slipped free of the print bed and become blobs.  I probably need to play around with bed temps to get them to stick more securely.

    I recently changed to rigid.ink and had a bit of a nightmare “dialling in” the settings to get a decent print from their pla – but once I did, the results were very impressive. The only thing I ever had trouble with (and it may be because of my auto-levelling sensor) was the first layer/skirt sticking – I either had to set the z-offset such that when it stuck on one side of the bed, it over-extruded (and went translucent) on the other, or when I had good adhesion on that side, the filament didn’t stick properly on the other.

    In short, some white spirit or isopropyl alcohol to clean the bed (I used both separately and both worked as well) then a film of Tesco’s own brand glue stick on the (heated) bed and I didn’t have a problem ever again!
