About the Project

I'm starting as a new Dungeon Master with my friends. A part of that is to build my first dungeon and I want to use 3d printed tiles and I need miniatures.

OctoPi is a web based application for controlling your printer. It lets you control your printer when your away. (Like cancel your print when it looks like spagetti and you happen to be at work). They have a file area where you can upload your gcode. Great way to store files when you do multiple prints.

One of my first good printsOne of my first good prints

So for models I started with the OpenForge lineup. It’s free and is’t a good classic lineup. Both me and my players are new to this so, for us old is new. The lineup can be found over at thingaverse.

For the print in the image I used supports. Most of the models I have tried thus far I have not needed any support on most of the models. Next up priming and painting.

Hairspray ftw

Amn, yeh hairspray.

So I learn that hairspray is an excellent adhesive for your printer, make sure those models are secure. I would also add a skirt in your slicer, so that when you print walls, they get a good base.

Price for hairspray 20 SEK

As the Ender 3 isn’t the greatest on producing miniatures. I was lucky the one of my players work with industry grade printers. (Yess)  I designed my Heroes in Heroforge, bought the stl file and sent it to him.

He was able to print som regular size minies and some enlarged ones.

Total cost of my players thus far. $ 40 and a beer (IPA).

3d printer

My first choice to start off this project is  to select and purchase a 3d printer. It fell on the Ender 3 printer as Ali had an sale of 30% on them. That paird with a glas bead for 1700 SEK (120£) was a steal. About 2 weeks of shipping time and a evening with a coworker it was up and running leveld and ready to produce.

That with a local shop had 30% off on filament was perfect. Let the production begin.
