No, of course not. Tabletop wargamers are so nerdy they make PC fanboys look cool and studly. 34%  34%  [ 24 ]

So don't PM me if you want a copy, because I don't have one. Of them. For you.

This thread's just full of disappointment, and I'm upset for both of you that you don't get to share that cool book.

GW must be shitting themselves.

http://www.gambody.com/blog/top-10-warh ... ing-files/

The WH40k Titans and knights cost more than a 3D Printer itself!

I know up close there's not the same detail but that's surely only a matter of time.

I'd like a 3D printer, but realistically what I want is a 3D printing service, where I send them the files and they send me a "thing".

I used this for printing extra plates for my TH8A gear shifter.

Will they baulk at printing copyrighted stuff, though? Let's find out!

Well one of the sites listed on there has example of BB-8s and that snowman thing from Frozen. Would be interesting to see where these companies draw the line - giant sex toys? 3D swastikas?

Are you saying that you want a 3D-printed version of you and Julia or that you're both giant sex toys?

Sort of but once you get into it you realise that there are limitations to what you can actually do vs injection molding. e.g. 3D printers cannot print onto thin air so you end up having to tell the slicer software to print supports but then removing these always leaves a mark. You can mitigate it by printing in multiple pieces or placing the model on the bed so as to minimise the number of supports needed but there are things they do really well and others that they just don't.

Space Marines, innit.

I have built the Grimlet up with HeroQuest, Space Hulk and Star Wars X-Wing, and I think he's nearly ready.

If it's just lots of the little plastic space marine guys then I'd doubt that it would be worth getting them made vs just buying them but if there's something in particular I can have a look. Have you seen something on Thingiverse or somewhere?

Nothing really, I was just thinking out loud, and I know how spendy GW are.
