    Default 3D Print for Toys

    Hi all.
    Recently, I am making my toys from resin.

    I got an opportunity to use 3D printer "Dimension BST". I tried reality-ization of the ZBrush work. I will post images until the toys are completed.

    That's pretty amazing!

    That must be cool being about to actually physicly hold something you modeled in Zbrush like that.

    I wonder how detailed that machine can get with the models that you make, or does it have limitations?

    Default resin, wax, polyurethane 3d casts

    Yup this is some pretty fantastic stuff

    There are some low range 3d printers available that will output WAX forms

    Some of them with surprising detail, although the wax medium used is also very helpful in getting the right look too.

    $8000 - $14000 for a low range 3d printer if i remember correctly, I did some looking into this a while back.

    Resin medium prints are definately a more durable material to use, both wax and resin can be painted /dye'd as well.

    The newest stuff on the market for 3d prints, and by far the most detailed are Polyurethane/Polyurea 3d prints..

    Basicly a 2 component chemical mixtures is mixed under high heat as its passed through a mixing tube , when the 2 chemicals, 1 is a polyurethane resin, the other is an activating agent that "cures" the resin at high speed so it can be built up in layers.

    I wouldnt know the pricetag on these printers, but I can say that polyurethane /polyurea painting and spray coating material runs about $150 for 600mlx300ml cartridge
    That would likely build 1 model at about 6" high and 4" wide

    benefit to polyurea's is you could through the thing at a wall and likely not see a dent

    nicholasmarks: one of the places that I have seen online that does this sort of thing is 3D Art to Part (www.3darttopart.com). Their prices seem quite reasonable ranging from $40 to $80, depending on the size and complexity. I haven't tried them yet and I am very curious to see how their process would handle a multi-million polygon ZBrush model.
