3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!


So I bought and built a 3D printer - (a Reprap Huxley), which means I can now do cool stuff like this! :D

These models are around 13cm long, and have been amazingly painted by a friend of mine who's an expert miniature painter. (Check out his site for more pics of the Fenris and Aeolus - there's some superb stuff on there)

So I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in getting some printed & painted FS miniatures? :)
Though it would vary with the desired size and complexity of the ship, the basic cost would be about AUD $36 for a similarly sized model, + AUD $15 for a basic-colours-only sort of paint job up to AUD $30ish for the kind of detail seen on the Fenris + postage.

PM me or post here if you're interested. :)

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
holy **** do want

I mean, I don't know that I have the spare cash (or for that matter, space) for them at the moment, but that definitely piques my interest. :)

You should print the Iceni, so you can put the Iceni on a little stand next to your monitor and window and talk about troy and stuff

I see you humans are already working on replicator technology. You still have a long way to go, though.

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
with the prices of 3d printers now in the $400-$500 price range im probibly gonna get one this fall. its probibly not gonna be a reprep, unless their prices come down a lot. then i can print enclosures for my electronics projects and a nice set of grips for the joystick of doom.
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

You should print the HTL Typhon for yourself. You deserve it. :)

 :eek2: WOW. That's amazing.

I'll be very interested by a painted HTL Sathanas (The RGA_Noris one), but I don't know if it's not too much detailed ?

And also, posting here to ask (maybe useful for others) : Can you use a Paypal for the transaction ?

Great work !

I actually tried doing this with a Makerbot Cupcake at my local hackerspace, for FringeSpace...  for whatever reason ReplicatorG doesn't like my models.

Hmm, I could make the arms separately - which would mean I could print them much more accurately, and also the ship could be bigger overall. So yeah - a Sathanas should be quite possible!
So would you be interested in getting one? If so I'll send a pic to my painter friend to get a cost estimate. :)

And yeah good point - Paypal should be fine. :)


Where were you when we made Carl in 2008? :p
Ooh I could probably print a second Carl. That'd be pretty cool. :D

Awesome !  :eek:

I have to send the link to this topic to a friend who is actually building a 3D Printer...
We talked about good old tabletop miniature gameing, and he said something about making miniatures. Time to remind him... :D

You should make a version with ball and socket joints so it is pose-able :)

And then take a photograph of it holding Action Mans' head...
