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.

As the saying goes ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ and after having experienced so many shortages of items due to COVID affecting manufacturing, I am now firmly of the mindset that I can 3D print almost anything miniature I need.
My most recent successes prove my point – The lovely pedestal that the Macaws and Cockatoos perch on is my own printed design which I paint to look like mahogany, the arch the birds sit on is wire which sits into sockets designed into the oval pedestal top.
When I was hit with a shortage of wicker baskets, and no nice designs of wooden crates I printed my own, and I love the new pot bellied cast iron casserole pots I have created and as the lids are separate I can leave it open and fill it with a stew made from my new found fun thing to do – making fimo meat and vegetables!
Have a look at the 3D blog where I go into more detail about the columns and baskets.
