Happy New Year! It has taken me a little longer to get going this year but there are some exciting things brewing. First up is a new hobby toy fresh from the holiday, an Anycubic i3 Mega 3D Printer.
I stayed out of it long enough but the price of these machines and the draw of what they can do forced my hand. I decided it was easiest to pick up what Colton and Reese had and the prices over the holiday were getting stupid cheap. This 3D printer cost less than my home paper printer so I decided to finally pick one up.
The device was simple to set up and I had hardly any issues getting to my first print (the stock “owl pairs” that come with the machine). It might seem like overkill to pick one up when Colton and Reese also have one but my kids are also being taught some CAD at school so it’ll be nice to show them the process of printing their creations as well instead of relying on the school printer to get through its workload.
It hasn’t been all owls and school projects though. I’ve been busy cranking out some terrain to fill out more Frostgrave as well.
The 3D printer is an interesting tool and I’ll do a write up comparing my CNC experience with my 3D experience but for now, I’ll just show off some finished terrain bits.
