After a couple failed efforts to get the miniature to stick to the buildplate rather than the FEP (see already using the lingo) & some assistance chats with Jarrett Lee I finally got the first figure printed in resin.
One of the figure files sets consisted of some wraiths from Archvillian Games
Here it is on the Chitubox software, with all the supports. I get that supports are a very big deal with resin printing & lots of conversations/posts I've seen discuss them.
Following some advice about an easy method to remove the structures After I washed the miniature, I placed it briefly in a bowl of hot water & they just kind of peeled off. Great idea!
So the print done, the supports removed. I haven't finished the cleanup of the little nubs left over from the supports, but overall looking good. Hmm, one thing I noticed immediately was that the base was warped. This could be something due to the angle I used, it wasn't calculated in any way, just went with how it came in to Chitubox, added the supports & sliced away.
Here you can see some of the nubs from the supports. As well you can see how the base warped.
So looking at the image that Archvillian Games used & looking at this grey, unprimed figure, I was beginning to wonder about the details..amy I using the wrong resin? Were my settings off?
I went down & just did a black wash of the figure, as my curiosity was piqued.
Yep, the detail is there, just hard to see with the bare figure. I will likely print this figure again with some tweaks to the settings
Also need to learn why the base printed warped. So the adventure continues...
