Wow! Those look really cool. Unfortunately I don't have a 3D printer . . .

I don't have a 3D printer, ether, but our public library has one you can use (for a fee). The programs are inexpensive enough it might be worth giving the thing a try.

Very cool pieces.

One of my clients had a 3d printer – this was 18 months or so ago. As you can imagine I was quite interested.

Couple of things I noticed.

1)
The printer was tricky to set up. It needed to be totally flat with no vibrations etc.
The guy setting their printer up had no end of failures initially.

2)
Each object is built up of many layers. These were noticeable.
You can see what I mean looking at the pictures.
On the painted ones, look at the cauldron on the table.
On the unpainted stuff, look at the top third or so of the barrel.
Once you see those contour lines.
Take a look at the other objects.

Maybe you could fill them or something.

Eventually, I should think you will be able to get 3d printers which make perfect models at a reasonable price.
Maybe things have already moved on since they bought that gizmo.
