To try an reduce the warping, we’ve added a few draught shields to our Finder to see if that makes a difference.

As you can see, only the highest grade parts were used in the this mod and in no way did we stick 2 kitchen towels on the sides with masking tape.

We had an issue with the first print attempt for the 3-square corridor section which failed at 10ish hours – this sometimes happens when you have the usb cable connected and the pc goes into sleep mode – the printer stops and goes immediately off.

The prints are below at the 140% scale I mentioned earlier and the minis pictured are on 40mm bases.

The things to take away from this are:

  1. Remember to unplug the USB cable when printing
  2. Try to keep the door closed when starting off jobs as this helps with draughts (which leads to uneven drying and warping)
  3. take a bit of care removing the print from the bed in particular  the OpenLOCK connector as I broke one of them pulling the print off the bed – running the plastic card underneath should do for this, but I wasn’t being careful as the print failed.

I also managed to sit on this guy while I was taking the pics and really he didn’t stand a chance.  (This is completely optional and not recommended for your own projects.)
