About the Project

Last Aug i got my new Creality CR-10 FDM printer (hot selling printer at the time). The only regret i have now is that i waited 6 months to make my purchase. I will show what i finish in the last year and hopefully what i finish in the years to come :).

After print the base structure. i added working doors: these were 3d print and pin at the corner to allow it to swing open.

Next was the roof, car port and back porch. i primed and use base color  that roughly matched my screenshot.

i added an upper floor because why not. i think it turn our good,but it need some window frames.

I was rushing through this project before hurricane Florence hit the east coast of United States between hurricane prep and listening to forcast for the upcoming storm. i manage to get a printable file done and printed before Florence made land fall. BTW the hurricane went right over us in Conway, South Carolina with very little damage,but now a week later we dealing the flooding.

The  windows were printed on my laser printer and glue on with PVA. in the future i will edit my design to add the windows

The grey tortoise sign was also printed on my laser printer and glue into place then painted to blend into the wall and then added  some color .

For the floors i used card stock from a cereal box with the floor board draw with a pencil . (Note as soon as i finished another box of cereal i will do the ground floor as well.)

Looking to 3d print some fallout style building. Looking around though the fallout 4 video game file i found a lot of very large and very tall building so i pick out a reasonable 2 story building.Looking to 3d print some fallout style building. Looking around though the fallout 4 video game file i found a lot of very large and very tall building so i pick out a reasonable 2 story building.

I found this basic building, but it need a lot work. (This is typical for video game models it a bare structure with a texture over the top.)

I clean the file up in TinkerCAD  to a reasonable state to be 3d printed. I desided to hollow out the inside to make playable and found the model not square. oops not a big deal.

i repair under the window and corner entrance (the corner wall was not vertical and the reinforcement i add show through at the top and bottom.) This look odd so i mirror the other side to look to even out the look.

The corner building look good enough so i sent the STL to my slicer program to print (OMG 49 hours on .20 mm course setting at 100 mm/s speed)

 

As the File was printing i ran though Fallout 4 on my PS4 collecting screen shot of this build.  I found 2 of these across the street from each other in Forest Grove Marsh (which is west of Diamond City).

01)As you can see my starting model has damage to the joints and face not ideal.

Various mash up later and i end up with a very cool pose. Now it off to Meshmixer and then Cura to be 3d printed.

Found a 3d model of a ice box or ice machine.  It so plain i added lettering and other small detail.

I remove the door and hollow out the inside to fit my ghoul buddy and test fit good i 3d print the ice box and ghouls separate because the ghoul minis need i finer setting and slower speed.

The ice box was printed at a layer hieght of 0.12mm with 20% infill at 75mm extruder speed.

I use PLA filament as standard for all my test print because it so easy to use and low temp(180-210 c).

My inspiration My inspiration

i found the basic model of the protectron and it charging pod from Fallout 4 game files.

I use BAE(Bethesda archive extractor) to gather meshes out of the fallout 4 game directory .

i use Nifkope software to convert said meshes to .obj.

Once i have the obj file i import it in to tinkerCAD (1), but this model is huge.

i then import another copy but at 25% but this is a touch to  small.

02)i use my insperational pic to gauge the size i want i end up with 31% of the original size model.(03) the red retangle represents a 28mm miniature.

04)using some CAD magic i remove the glass and door into the desire effect. with one model being open and and one closed.

05)Next is to export both models into Cura (slicing software use to create Gcode for my 3D printer) and print.

these are great first prints, but there a gap on the top of the  door that need to be filled.

I painted using a base of space wolf grey(fortress grey)

Black for the hoses the dry brush with plate metal.

Accent with goblin green.

Lava orange for the lights.

My very first time printing didnt go so well it peel off my build surface and i had to stop the print. It was a benchy file use to test the tolerance of your 3d printer

After some research on the internet i was able to continue.

(01)My first print for myself was on the morning of the Hobby night live.  I just got into Infinity by Corvus Belli and want to 3D print some terrain.

Here are some images of what i model and 3D printed. (02) slightly better photo( my phone is rubbish)

03) Lo Pan noodle hut model after the card stock terrain in the Red Veil starter.

04)Halo ads

05)Recycle bins

08)Warren suggest i print these flat, but it only save me about an hour and i still needed to put it all together. The Plus side is that the wall and roof are interchangeable and that open up a lot of possibilities.

I found my Benchy .(not sure it it my first or not )

In no particular order here are some 3D print that i finished in the past year.
