Not so much as modelling but side projects. I modelled and 3d printed a conehead to make an Imperial communication droid.



I also had some mdf laser cut to make a painting stand.

Nice idea with the painting stand. about how much did that cost you, out of curiosity? if you don't mind.

$55. Not cheap but I went ahead as a test anyway.

That's not bad, given the setup costs etc. I think you'd be hard pressed to have it made any cheaper using any other manufacturing methods.
as a 1 off item at least.

I also sanded and gave the 3d printed part a coat of primer. A few print marks remain but I'm sure they'll disappear after some more sanding and primer.

SOO much shiny!

I love the stand you've got for the bike as well, very neat idea.
Is the entire droid 3D printed or just the top? I can see what you mean about the print lines but they are very faint. Was it an extruded print or a fused powder process?

Cheers. The head is the only printed part. The body is from the Bandai R5-D4 kit so I need to cast the sensor eye bits and surrounds. I had it printed at Shapeways in frosted ultra detail which I assume is resin cured by laser, layer by layer. The tolerances are excellent and fit is extremely good so if the drawing is accurate then so is the model I've found. I might tweak it a bit and have it printed in extreme detail for version 2.
