Also for those who have been following the thread a while, my 3D printer arrived!


The test print, and some minis I printed, before and after I finished speed painting most of them XD my first test set of dice failed, and the vat ran out of resin on my last print leaving some half decapitated models but I've been loving it.

Whoa! Those dice and the minis look rad as hell when they're just raw, unpainted resin. Being able to print stuff like this from home is so unbelievably cool.

It really is. My group I DM for, most of them are coming to me early next week with minis for our campaign to print out

Part of me wants to print out everything, all the monsters they fight, but the other part of me is like... That's a looootta resin.

But on the other hand, you can never really have too many Kobolds, they're such great level 1 fodder

8 year old me would absolutely lose his mind if he learned that in the future you could just print more minifigures instead of having to make due with the one or two of each he had. You should absolutely print, like, 50 kobolds and then find every excuse as a DM to make the party encounter a horde of kobolds just so you can throw them all down at once.

52 Kobold pick up 🤔

My group should be running into a Kobold den after they break out of jail in a session or two...

laoni you're amazing. I know I won't win but you and Samaritan are inspirational with your giveaways. I wish there was something this community could do for you both. I don't know what it is. Thank you.

Crossing my fingers.
I haven't played Pokemon since Red/Blue (outside of trying Gold on a friend's cart for like, the first 30 minutes or so), because the games never really appealed to me, and I was at that age where the series launched right at the tail end of that age bracket that really got into Pokemon, but the UK aesthetic as well as some of the new designs are kind of appealing to me, making me interested in SwoShi.

So, getting the opportunity to play Pokemon after like 20 years is appealing. Thanks laoni , even if I don't win!
Surely you only picked Shield so you can post Sword afterwards and only allow me to get it, right? Right? :p

I picked Shield cause I got Sword and maybe it'll increase the pool for Shield exclusives ;D

And everyone is in the Sobble Squad XD
It really seems like everyone is either #SobbleSquad or #GrookeyGang. There was so much love for Scorbunny around the reveal trailer, but I don't know a single person who picked it. Gotta say it feels good that the fire starter seems like the least popular, it's about time. Anxiety lizard for life!

Well to be fair, Sobble's final evo is absolutely gorgeous. :>
I just couldn't deny that crying boy

My boyfriend is Team Scorbunny, in my friend group, it's all Scorbunny or Sobble, I know one person with Grookey.

That spider looks disgusting and I saw that as a compliment because that means it came out really well! :D

How beginner friendly is it?
The resin they start you with, the settings are all pretty much the default in their software (the Photon slicer program) so it's pretty plug and play to begin with. They send you most of the tools you need, you just need IPA to clean the excess resin off the finished prints, containers for the IPA washes, and I'd personally buy some safety glasses and a better plastic scraper. When you buy another type of resin you'll have have to do some calibrating to tune the settings right, but there's prints you can do that can help you tune in the settings for each individual resin type.

The Photon (The older, cheaper model) has a lot of community support as well, the Photon S less so, but they have a lot of similarities.

Thank you! I'm still learning to paint, so hearing compliments about it is always nice! :D

Maybe you should make a thread where you can post your progress, something like: "Iaoni's Table Top Adventures" :D

Ahh, it has a lot of overlap with the tabletop painting OT so I'll probably end up getting redirected there. I could probably make a thread about more of the printer side of it though
Ah I wasn't even aware that we had a tabletop OT, yeah that will be the case then but that sounds like a plan! Honestly I find 3D-printers fascinating.
