Two lady troopers ready to kill alien scum

Two lady troopers ready to kill alien scum and explore the galaxy

I like Games Workshop, and I really like 3d printing – and one day, quite soon, those two likes are going to have an epic battle of their own, off the wargaming table.

Kiosk 2.0 from Unfold. Notice the printer inside, the hanging prints, and the bag of all-too-familiar printing-detritus.

I had wanted to create something like this – a mobile, wheeled, 3d printing street-vendor cart!  Called Kiosk 2.0 and created by ‘Unfold Design Studio’ based out of Belgium, the Kiosk combines printer and scanner (and I’d not thought of a scanner when I was making plans) and little bags of pre-printed objects hanging from the shelter over the top.  tl;dr – The ultimate kiosk will include printer, scanner AND recycler – and we’re almost there!

Circular Gallifreyan cufflinks for Space (spase) and Time

Another set of cufflinks – this time in the fictional language of circular Gallifreyan

My flurry of 3d printed cufflink creation continues – and again I’m posting the Doctor Who inspired ones (not the ones inspired by my work, because some include art that’s not public yet).  These cufflinks have ‘circular Gallifreyan‘ on them – a non-official, fictional writing method inspired by Doctor Who.

Translation below.

TARDIS shaped cufflinks

My printed, painted, TARDIS shaped cufflinks.

Not much more to say, but that one evening I despaired over not having TARDIS cufflinks, and by the time I left for work the next morning, I was wearing the above pair.  Printed on the 3d printer, sanded, smoothed with acetone-plastic slurry, undercoated, painted, drybrushed and glued!  Easy peasy.

A 3d printed anglepoise lamp, from the highly derived LED Desk Lamp by CarryTheWhat on Thingiverse

A no-solder, 3d printed, miniature anglepoise lamp in black and UV.

Above, you can see my weekend project – a 3d printed, no-soldering-iron-required, LED using miniature anglepoise lamp.  I printed it on Saturday, and assembled it on Sunday – it’s fitted with 6 UV LEDs (because I couldn’t find any white at the time) and the lamp shade has a thin accent line of glow-in-the-dark plastic as a highlight.

A Skaven watchtower model, 3d printed

My 3d printed Skaven watchtower

Bit of a weekend project – a 3d printable piece of Warhammer Fantasy Battle terrain.  I keep flip-flopping on whether I like the texture – an artifact of the 3d printing process.  It’s sort of interesting; a little reminiscent of wood, but different.

Miniature, voronoi-style shelf from lollipop sticks and printed connectors

My test shelf - a Voronoi diagram design, and 3d printed connectors

My Sunday project, above – a tiny set of shelves inspired by Hero-Design‘s Voronoi diagram shelf generator.  I love Voronoi diagrams – not something you hear every day.

A 3d printed, Warhammer 40k inspired dreadnought on the left, and an official Warhammer 40k dreadnought miniature on the right

On left - BomsaiBrain's 3d printed Warhammer style miniature. On right - an official GW dreadnought mini.

Anyone who’s into 3d printing is probably aware that the PirateBay recently announced a new category on their torrent tracking site for 3d model files, ostensibly for 3d printing, called Physibles.  Man do I have a lot to say about that.

Chocolate planets by Japanese chocolatier, L'eclat

From Japanese chocolatiers, L'Eclat, this is an old photograph from when Pluto was included - the new set has only 8

Have you ever felt like an elder god, peering down upon tiny, unsuspecting worlds, deciding which insignificant planet will be first to fail to sate your inconceivable hunger?  Just me then?  Well, if you haven’t, and would like to, then chocolate planets might be the best way to go.

Printed sockets and PVC piping to make a wendy house

Home Sweet 3d Printed Sockets and PVC Piping Home

I had intended to make a ‘Baba Yaga’s Hut‘ costume for Halloween this year, but my ambition was greater than my time limit and while I didn’t manage the full chicken legs and miniature-witch part of the costume, I did construct a small Wendy-house like tent-thing!
