The idea of 3D printing sounds straight out of science fiction, and to a certain extent it is – read on below for an explanation of what it is, and to find out how I use my printer to make my exclusive miniatures and accessories.
I have had my 3D printer for a few years now and its been a bumpy ride! However as time goes by I am coming to realise that there really are very few limits to what I can create – the hard part is the model development and getting the printer to co-operate!
24/06/21 LATEST 3D PRINTED MAKES…
24/06/21 COVID has had all sorts of strange effects on the world (apart from the the heath ones) like shortages of everyday things (loo roll!) but now we are on the verge of getting back to normal other ones have arisen – like cardboard postal boxes and good quality furniture to dress!
This shortage has been hitting for a while as the factories were closed and not making any, and wholesalers ran out of stock (as well as the delays to any deliveries caused by Brexit) and so I have been developing pieces of furniture I can print.
Although I have several models in development, the first to appear is a dressing table fit for a queen – seriously – it was made to go in a customers house for Queen Marie Antoinette and needed to be as over the top as possible! Think I managed it – read more about it on the 3D printing blog.
Heidi (in the chair) and Gloria (in the bath) are two of my favourite recent dolls – but I have quite a few commission ones still to do, so watch this space – more pictures coming soon!
