I love getting 3d-printed parts in the mail. It's like Christmas. Or a successful bank robbery.
Today's arrival of the Grymn Powered Armor parts marks the close of this little effort for Hasslefree Miniatures, a lovely group of folks in the UK.
reverse engineering worked out, and the new digital-sculpted shoulder cup fits beautifully over the production model's shoulder stud. Those spikes are the attachment points from the build support lattice. Easily remedied.
These parts were printed on Moddler.com's Perfactory machine. As you can see from the macro pictures, my fingerprints show more flaws than the builds.
Those spikey bits are attachment points for the support scaffolding that is intrinsic to Perfactory builds. Part of designing means leaving spots where detail can be obliterated or masked by these studs. It helps when you have an expert running the machine, like I do with Moddler.
Well, with a bit of clean-up (x-acto blade and light sanding) these will soon be winging their way to the UK.
