  1. Recently I have found a new 3d printing provider which can deliver in the needed quality and in a reasonable price range. I'm now searching for a reseller in US or Kanada which is able to cover this market with his bricklink store. Currently the possible end user price range for these items can be between $1.5-$2. If somebody is interested, please contact me. Woody64 Here you see the delivered items and in the background the first figures. The group shown above is wearing older prints from different 3d printing providers.
  2. Update with the newest 3d printing result (delivered in white and coated in black). Also in a printing price range which allows small numbers at a reasonable price.
  3. Further printed torsos have arrived: Leading to the first French group:

  5. 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

    Austrian Army during Napoleonic wars

    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.

    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

    ... 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:

    Austrian Army during Napoleonic wars

    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
  12. 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

    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.
