@TeirdalinFirefall We can build one. 😀 Weird Science Movie.

@Lostpoet Weird science is the best kind of science.

Wow, you're sure printing a lot... Think I just saw you asking which model to buy like a week ago. 😂 I'm not sure where I've put the hot-bed cable that kept breaking on mine... o.O

@Faust76 Set the support width to about 1/3rd or so of the defaults and they come right off fairly smoothly. For supports to not be the same material as the base model it NEEDs a dual extruder to begin with. xD

Also they are not the same price, you can get amazon basics for cheap bulk but is lower quality.

Also with a dual extruder you can use transparent, wooden or metallic filament as well with the model alongside cheap supports, and the specialty filaments go for about 30-40+.

@TeirdalinFirefall Yeah, the ability to use two different final materials in non-horizontal slices is only reason I'd really consider dual extruder. Never forget you can generally just swap the filament mid-print, and often printing interlocking parts separately in different materials is better too, though.
TeirdalinFirefall · 31-35, M
@Faust76 Swapping mid print sounds like it requires absurd timing and effort considering it's still printing a layer at a time and you have to constantly stop, remove the spool, thread in a new spool, etc between every layer.

But true printing separately is a good idea but not always the best.

But then also, I rather use a $10 bulk filament as the supports instead of the $40 small spool of specialty filament.
Wow so basically they build paper sculptures?
@TeirdalinFirefall holie...shid🤔

@SW-User I'm currently making a miniature hogwarts. xD

No, I think they could be real cool though

@UndercoverBard I'm currently making a miniature hogwarts. lol

Thanos came out pretty good although considering rigging this model I found because his positioning is kinda meh. Fortunately whoever made this model I used in the print seems to have the Thanos and chair be separate objects I think, which would make it super easy.

looks larger than six inches … what's the largest dimension your printer can accommodate? the tower 'n staircase [i](background)[/i] … that probably was too large … right?
TeirdalinFirefall · 31-35, M
@muffinman The dice tower is a little taller than Thanos. I think this printer is 300mmx300mmx400mm

Mine is very flaat...2Ds only.
TeirdalinFirefall · 31-35, M
@Human1000 That's the OG printer.

I did, but it broke. Electrical issue
