In Over My Head Again

Hoo boy, I've done it again! I tried making something simple, and then over-complicated it, with my best excuse by far being nothing more than "distraction." As some of you may know, I post on Hive a lot more frequently then I do here, and I document almost everything that I'm working on, though for…

Where Have I Been?!

Short answer: at home, up to my eyeballs in work.  Fortunately, I have a bit of a reprieve today, since I'm waiting on a tool I need for my next job.  So, what have I been doing?  Well, in addition to desperately trying to keep up with trimming the vegetation, a task made damn near…

Tips for Printing Your Own Miniature Tanks

Since I'm getting more orders for tank files on Wargaming 3D, I thought I would share some tips for those who own resin printers.  I use a Formlabs Form 3 for printing my models, but for those who have a different machine, such as the Anycubic Photon S, most of what I'm about to discuss…

Aboard the Zaphnora

Long-time readers of my blog (and a couple of newcomers as well) will probably recall first seeing the name Zaphnora in a post titled "Airships of the Nine Empires, Part 2."  Well, given my new adventures with a high-resolution 3D printer, I have decided to make a much more detailled model of this ship than…

Important Print Shop Update

Today, I start running castable wax in the Form 3!  This is an important development, because it means I can start making my own jewellery.  I'll be able to include as much detail as I want, rather than being constrained to whatever doesn't get obliterated by the overly aggressive polishing processes that Shapeways uses.  Hopefully,…

New Tank Database

Today, I finally finished work on a second tank model database.  Unlike a previous post on this blog, which is for Shapeways models, the new database is for models that I'm printing myself.  The new database is up on my website, and contains direct links to main entries as well as individual products, along with…

Expanding Miniature Inventory

Today, I took another batch of pictures and posted them to Steemit.  Click here to see them all.  I'm building up an inventory of 1:285 scale tanks, while also testing some of my model ships.  Some of these ships I will sell the files for on Wargaming 3D, but others I'm just making for fun,…

New Video Series: Kaja’s 3D Print Shop

The Form 3 has been running for a few days now, and I'm happy to report that I can print sailing ships with it.  My first test included several 1/1200 scale ancient war galleys, which, as you might expect, didn't have much in the way of supports.  My 1/1000 scale 1812 frigate had more supports,…

Two-Month Production Delay?! I am NOT Happy

However, there's hardly anything I can do about it.  For those wondering what's going on, since I am one of the first people to order a Formlabs Form 3, and the company is apparently having trouble keeping up with demand, my original shipping date of 20 August has been pushed back to 11 October.  That's…
