This morning as I was bringing the shopping in I slipped on the mud and sat down abruptly. As I was laden down with bags I couldn’t break my fall so bits of me have spent today reminding me that they existed.
Anyway enough of my whining. As I was on light duties I managed to make something else in Blender.
These nearly drove me demented. One is single sided and the other is double. At the minute I am trying to work out how to add a raised image… it is not going well!
If you hear a fell voice on the wind it is only me throwing a tantrum… again!
Okay so I haven’t actually done any painting, but I have got the mausoleum finished…
I had a bit of an exciting lunchtime as I tried to set my school on fire when the toaster failed to pop up… at least I know the smoke alarms work! Full evacuation occurred, plus I didn’t get any lunch as it was carbonised!
Now instead of shoving as much onto the build plate as possible, I am instead going for smaller numbers, a major reason is that the filament is running short, but also because I got two walls in just over two hours.
I also printed a dozen ghouls and a dozen dwarves Huscarls.
Well that is the tower finished. Part one was just under 19 hours, part two over 26 hours and part three came in at just under 7 hours. So all in about 52 hours… I am now going to have to purchase a new roll of filament too as this took up an awful lot.
On the tooth front, I ended back in at the dentist today as my face swelled right up and was really sore. They cleaned it out again and also redid the filling.
Here is mr Chipmunk!
The triage nurse wanted to see what the swelling looked like. I took the photo while on the phone to get.
Eighteen hours Forty nine minutes of printing led to the first part of the tower getting finished.
The tower will be on the right hand side. Based on the printer first layers the tower is the same length as this one. From what I remember there will be a rock face against the lower bit, but I honestly cannot remember what it looks like.
So after doing a lot of big buildings and some larger scatter I was running a bit low on filament so I went down a few sizes to ensure I didn’t run out mid print. Here is an original Mordheim miniature trying the out for size.
To breed honest I could have probably done another set of these with what was left on the roll, but my new one came today so I went back to bigger things. Mixed in amongst the bigger things were another set of the crates.
I am really pleased that this machine seems to be back to full functionality. Obviously the money I spent on upgrades, never installed, was wasted as it is now (touch wood) seems to be fine.
I can only remember some of what I added to the build plate so tomorrow I am in for a surprise 😁. Not sure what time tomorrow as the build plate is quite full. When I was out just before the bases of things hat were printed were about 3mm high… that was after almost 4 hours printing. I did spot one thing that might cause me problems. One of the crate piles seemed to be touching another thing!
