It's been awhile since I've posted. This isn't to say I haven't been busy. In fact I have been painting those Aztec Dungeon tiles I had got in the kickstarter. It's a 2 stage process with first the green, & then brown paint..so I've been using my lunch hours to work on them. As I had already posted about them, I didn't want to add a bunch of posts of pretty much the same thing.
However, also during that time, I went & ordered an Elegoo Mars Pro Resin printer. As I've barely scratched the knowledge surface on the Anycubic Mega-S, this may seem a bit premature. The reason is that many of the kickstarters I've supported for 3d print files came with both figures & terrain. So with the terrain covered, & being stuck at home for this pandemic, I thought it was an opportunity.
First things first, I had to rearrange the basement layout to accommodate this new workspace.
My first attempt at printing the test pieces didn't go so well...so I hit the pause button. Waited a week for the ultrasonic cleaner to arrive.
Yesterday I tried again.
So this time it worked, though not perfectly. What caused the split in the one on the left? No idea. I also wanted to avoid using the harsh cleaners so after watching some Youtube, & then a recent facebook post about using Awesome from the dollar store...I went & bought a couple bottles. I don't have as much concern about disposing of this vs white spirits. I've also ordered a couple bottles of the water cleaning resin & will likely stick with that once the current starter bottles are finished.
Next will be my first attempt at one of the miniatures using supports. Lot's to learn!
