    Knoetel in Minifigs

    sei perfezionista? Since I've done 54mm very long (decades) ago I can see some incredible details .... Woody64 Yeah that's the unsolved topic by now: - the surface of the material results in this bumpy look. But that's only so clear visible in the macro zoom of the photos. The photos are often 2 or 3 times larger ... There's already the smoothed version of the WSF material (pWSF) which is much better then before. - there are 2 further materials available which result in a much smoother look even on the bigger pictures but they are far more expensive. Here's a photo of the other material: Here's oncemore the result of pWSF showing the Minifigs in a comparable size to above and also in a compareable size to the original Minifig size. Any you see it's not that visible ... The procedure is: - 3d design via cad program - upload to shapeways - ordering - shapeways uses 3d printers to build the items - after receiving applying a coat of acrylic colors. see also http://uglyduck-bric...ys-minifig.html Woody64

    Knoetel in Minifigs

    Do you mean the porous surface? If so, then that's true in the photos. But if you minimize the photos on the screen to minifig size, you won't see it. Woody64

    Knoetel in Minifigs

    Here's the material description. http://www.shapeways.com/materials/ I'm using WSF and polished WSF. Also White Detailed, FD and FUD are proper choices with smoother surfaces but also more expensive. Woody64

    My Grande Armèe

    That looks really interesting. Do you have any further photos of the end results. A complete Minifig using your custom parts. As I have seen you first build the master part and then you mold it. What material did you use? Woody64

    Which French Soldier do you prefer?

    For Napoloenic area use: - white for line infantry - dark blue for light infantry and artillery If you are more going for the 1870s then use the red one :)

    Retreat

    During the retreat a lot of different troops having lost their units join. Due to the uniform mix it may be a picture of the Russian retreat where also unform parts where assembled and replaced by parts from other troops. Indeed it was done to show coloring in green and blue on WSF. 3 coats of paint and the result is not as bad.

    Retreat

    If they are looking like plastic then the intension is exactly matched. That was the purpose to change the white (WSF) material as nearby as possible. Woody64

    Prussians in the dawn

    It's just for fun. But it was inspired by some plates I got covering hole regiments. So I started to make some decals covering the main roles in a regiment. Woody64

    Prussians in the dawn

    There are 2 versions of the shako in my shop. One is a little bit smaller. The size in diameter is strongly connected to the material used. Therefore I can't go beyond this margins since the 2 materials I use need 0.7mm and 1mm wall size which defines the diameter arround the hat. I have only a number of 70-100 minifigs with custom designed decals which I use with various of my custom items. Currently I have a showboard where 50 Minifigs all equipped with custom helmets or weapons are shown. Here's an item which can be used for the prussian Landwehr. But in principle for this item also the Lego standard hat can be used. Or do you see a big difference between Schirmmütze and the Lego standard item (for officers, train personal)? http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=194067&f=194067.v2.s13.blender.large.jpg Woody64
