3d printed Runabout

Post by Father Cool » Sat Dec 01, 2018 9:57 pm

When testing my Anycubic photo 3D printer I produced this.

I chose the scale because it was a good size to test and happened to match the size of the Rubicon from 'one little ship'

Just thought it would be of interest.

The whole thing is handpainted in GW paints.

Thanks guys.

The Anycubic Photon is a DLP resin printer. It hardens a bath of liquid resin by exposure to a UV light through an LCD mask in a screen below the tank. The resolution of the model is dependent on the screen resolution but the screen is 2K and produces very crisp models.
