  1. In this photo you see 2 types of customization: - my own 3d printed hats which received a new quality hub via "smoothing beautifier" by Sculpteo and Acrylate by Shapeways. (So far never had a really smooth shiny experience, but now it's possible) - and UV printed torso by steindrucker.com, which also came out in a surprisingly quality (needed to resize my custom decals with help of vector graphic, but with some minutes of work and the help of Inkscape it was possible) Together I can now think to build complete series of historical Minfigs in a quality nearby original Lego Woody64
  2. Yesterday I got my first batch from steindrucker.com .... The prints were really pretty!! Woody64
  3. Both. One in us and one in netherlands
  4. Only to bring that once more to the younger audience of this forum. The first Item was done as answer to a discussion here for creating a seldom part. After month of research i could present the first print here. Before i had no idea about 3d printing. So the forum here was the incubator for a series of more then 150 Historic items.
  5. Only some days ago, Sculpteo has announced that their smoothing beautifier is available also in black. If ordered some and I'm looking forward how these items look with this new finish .. Woody64
  6. ... also there were already some creations around,showing parts. In that picture I've tried a newer service from sculpteo which has resulted in the best 3d printed surface seen so far:
  7. Don't think if I will ever do them in real, if I would sell them and if anybody is interested in ... - Maybe Austrians are not the best one to start with but it was a boy dream 40 years ago to make a reference book for Napoleonic Austrians. The book generated now is a little bit different then thought years ago but who cares ... And If there would be a wargaming community using Lego there were some buyers (because there you can find tons of Austrian troops) - @dzidek1983: Yes I know the different points of view between modelling and building. For me using normal ones is not the same fun as designing custom plates with some historical accuracy. But that's left to the personal taste. :) Also, none of the Minifigs is wearing a standard Lego hat. They all have custom ones from the shop. There I have sold now more then 10.000 items. (not much for Lego standard pieces but a lot for customs printed on demand) .... also a very different point for customizers and purists :) Woody64
  8. I was sure that I've already shared it on weekend, but seems that it was lost ... I've published a book with a complete set of table about the Austrian army during Napoleonic wars. Base for that were the decal set I started years ago on the base of Mosana's designs. They get a complete relaunch with all the necessary changes to be as historical accurate as possible representing the different Austrian Units. See here the decals used for the Austrian Landwehr and partly a s base also for other units: . The 2nd topic were all the custom hats and helmets for the Napoleonic times where the first item ever done in the 3d printing technology was started here after a longer discussion how the rare shakos can be recreated with other means. The 3rd part were all the renders I can do now with LDD, LDD2povray, stl2povray and povray. During Christmas I recoded a bigger part so that doing these tabels with figures in diferent positions can be done more easily. See one of the results here (Hungarian insurrectio troops): Finally I have added some textual clue mainly referencing some historical or military explanations (with references to the text in Wikipaedia) resulting now in the book published by tredition.de .... Since a lot of topics and techniques created for this book were first discussed here I want to thank all the member which have contributed with their ideas ... Woody64
  9. Yes I'm designing that type of items for 8 years now. Normally built at Shapeways in that case built from Sculpteo to test the new smoothed modifier which results the first time in a smooth surface for the Nylon based material at affordable pricing.
  10. Steampunk Lego group printed in 3d with a new smoothing finish to optimize the look and feel of the items. Woody64
  11. Some renders done for the anniversary of Waterloo for the defenders of La Haye Sainte (British and German units) Details you can find here:
  12. I have designed a lot of additional hats and helmets from the Napoleonic era ... Michael did some excellent work in painting and adding additional stuff
  13. Here are some new results of my recently purchased Nobel SLA printer (Resin grey). That enables me to get a prototype result in several hours. - British Hussar - Austrian Landwehr - Austrian Lancer - Austrian Hussar (variant of the standard Austrian Infantry Hat, changed from the standard in some minutes and printed in one hour) Further results you can see on my Flickr account: https://www.flickr.c...s/34336019@N07/ Woody64
  14. One recreation study as povray render .... (see also here a better link to the painting of Albrecht Adam) The story in short is: It happend during the french offensive 1809 through the Kanaltal. The Austrian forces were ordered back and the defenders got the task to hinder the french corps as long as possible. They did it for some days with a corps of less then 300 soldiers. After all the french stormed the fort with the help of one troop searching their way trough the mountains in the back of the defenders. That's why it's called the Austrian Thermopyles, since the end of the story reminds to the greek story. The 300 soldiers had a loss of 80 dead and further 80 wounded whereas the 17th may was reported with 1300 dead and wounded by the french.
