As this option continues to grow and become cheaper, I think it would be great to have a centralized thread for discussing 3D printing options. Feel free to share what you’ve used in terms of printers, materials, files, etc. (and link to your files if you want others to be able to use the designs)
Just the progress shown by some members of the Facebook group alone is pretty exciting! 😀December 7, 2019 at 8:30 PM #10492
“3D Printing Across All Retail Sectors” section made me think about Pirates a bunch.September 27, 2020 at 10:07 PM #12173
I have bought an Ender 3 V2! (affiliate link) It seems to be working well given my complete lack of knowledge about 3D printing. I have printed out a few test jib-style foremasts using Juulm’s files he shared. I am excited to make progress.
Question of the Day: Do you have a 3D printer? If not, do you plan on getting one?September 28, 2020 at 2:57 AM #12176
Important to note that this was with NO settings adjusted on the printer, in the slicer, etc. I didn’t remember to even change the infill, so that’s why it’s a bit skeletal.
I was just glad that it fit, and I hadn’t botched the printer construction or setup to the point where the shape or scale was way off. Very exciting and promising!! 😀September 28, 2020 at 11:54 PM #12179
Here we go!!
After some various edits and testing, I have completed my first 3D printed ship!! O_O 😀 It’s rough around the edges and definitely not perfect, but I am extremely excited by the progress and look forward to more soon! 😀September 30, 2020 at 12:32 AM #12185
Something I thought of today: people have expressed considerable interest or enjoyment in the large-scale ships seen at the Minnesota RenFest and those from PDXYAR. 3D printed ships would be limited by the size of the print bed, but simply by upscaling the x, y, and z axis of each model, you could print ships of varying sizes. 😀 (some additional adjustments might have to be made to preserve durability and slot perfection)October 5, 2020 at 1:03 AM #12216
Just printed a test cube from this process and it happens to be the perfect size for a little fort, a building, or a coin deposit! You could even stack up coins and hide them underneath. (4 master for scale heh)October 19, 2020 at 2:29 AM #12423
Just as a warning: don’t use “soft” PLA for printing Pirates CSG stuff – it comes out too soft and is very flexible!
Thanks to Todd C, I just printed out this 5 master from his files he shared! (I just scaled the z axis up to .9mm in Cura before slicing; the printed parts measure about .8mm)October 28, 2020 at 1:43 PM #12645
Here is a model of Fort Jefferson that I printed out! I cut out most of the excess material in 3D Builder with a hollow cylinder and blocks. Then I scaled the X axis down to 200mm (I think), so the print would fit on the printer bed. 5 master for scale. In the future I might try another print with it and try to get it more to scale. But for now I really love this! 😀December 13, 2020 at 10:53 PM #13010ChrisParticipant
The fort is quite impressive! 3D printing has really opened up the possibilities for new and/or custom Pirates material.
