    Another LHS closing...sign of the times

    I go to the one in Ypsi when i go up to visit my dad, they have a fair to good selection There name is Nankin Hobby on Washtenaw ave, If you ever make it over to Tecumseh, J Bar Hobbies is also a great place.

    Sure, i will PM you some screen shot of what i mean Its all about the resin and the machine, I understand that i cant do this with my AnyCubic but i can get better prints from it with different resins.

    3D Printing

    It's my go to for design and printing, it does have somethings that you need to watch for , such has once you solidify you model or part you will need to go back and align your vertices mostly on the ends, it does not line them up vertically but at the angle of the face, F360 does not have this issue

    My 1/48 armour builds

    Is there a wide selection in 1/48 military kits, excluding aircraft of course. Will be nice to see the Krupp done.

    One question Tim, Was that done with auto supports, you can also change the density down to 30 from 35, in some case's the software over compensates supports, if auto supports are to close together i remove some of them, most the time a 5mm spacing is good. i have printed a small flat piece for support testing, maybe a 1/2" x 1/2" .01mil piece, put 3 at a time on the plate with different support density's and see which you are more comfortable with. You can also make your top point smaller .30, .40 this lessen the chance of breaking the part but you would need more supports, I am finding i always edit my support to my liking depending on where they touch the part. You will get it tuned in, hell took me a month, the STL's i sent you were a good tool for me (where and how do put supports on something this small and not have to sand off some detail)
