Let me show some printed models from my 28mm medieval range

painted by Frank Becker

cavcrazy27 Jan 2023 1:39 p.m. PST

Wow. Very nice buildings.

Titchmonster27 Jan 2023 2:39 p.m. PST

Where can you buy these pieces?

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP27 Jan 2023 2:42 p.m. PST

only as files, you need a printer

Gobsmackin' Gorgeous!

It's a brave new world…..even if it looks like an awesome olden one here.

Great stuff !!
Approximately how long did that take to print all of that ?

I forgot Russ is into buildings, we talked about that at Fall In 2022.

Old Glory Sponsoring Member of TMP10 Mar 2023 1:43 p.m. PST

As I suspected I will assume then ?

Having just gotten into resin printing figures, I'll have to move into buildings next. However I have a small print plate (Mars 3 pro). It seems most people cut their buildings into 200x2200 chunks, or use a big FDM printer.

I'm curious what you, as a building designer, think about the best way to print such buildings.

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP13 Mar 2023 3:59 a.m. PST

sorry for delay answer. Not a daily visitor.
@OldGlory I use 10 printers, so the time factor is uninteresting to me. Of course, such large buildings sometimes take 50 hours or more.

@jgawnwe for 28mm scale buildings I would always recommend FDM printing. Especially with the small resin printers you have a lot of small parts in 28mm, because the model has to be completely disassembled. then in the end you have something like a model kit again, which i don't think can be the point of 3d printing. When buying a 3D FDM printer, I would always advocate a print bed of 300x300mm. you are on the safe side and can then print 28mm buildings uncut. my buildings are always divided into floors so that you can play inside. today there are such great cheap printers with a large construction area.

Excellent. I have to say, 3D printing looks like the future- I'm not sure how I feel about that as I like and enjoy the durability of metal.

That is a couple hours work --at most-- in tradition resin casting.

Russ Dunaway

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP15 Mar 2023 2:20 p.m. PST

the difference – with resin casting I have to put hands on molds and models. Printing runs alone ….

Old Glory Sponsoring Member of TMP16 Mar 2023 10:52 a.m. PST

With a day's work I would have dozens of these buildings and would not need 10 machines??

my clients primary are 3d printer owners, they buy my files. I have my printers for testprinting, not for producing.
In past I casted my ranges in resin, happy now, that this is my past…..

Hi Jens,
Very nice 3D designs,,,,,indeed. I am also intrigued by the colored hex grid groundwork in your photos. Did you make those or where did they come from!

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2023 9:24 a.m. PST


I collected some pictures from Internet. Then made a collage and put a hexfield onto finished layout. Then let print on „table cloth" via printingservice here in Germany.

"I have to say, 3D printing looks like the future…"

And here I am!

Don't worry, metal is not going anywhere.

+100 Russ.

"only as files, you need a printer"

That catch never gets old.

"Printing runs alone …."

Kind of voids the point right there.

If it's so good because you don't have to do anything, why bother. Just ordering something is less bother completely. 50 hours is 2 days, you can express post that if your in such a hurry.

Even scratch building could be quicker.

I'm interested in some of the possible defects shown. Funny bubbles/holes above the gate in the last pic.

That other house put up has a lot, especially little holes in bricks. Amy ideas?

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2023 11:14 p.m. PST

No ideas to talk esp. with you about 3d printing….

The H Man Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2023 11:52 p.m. PST

Not talk about 3d printing?

This board is all about talking about 3d printing.

Seriously, though, above the gate there's some waste? Between the stones and some hole like features. Are they part of the design, print fail, or just some excess over print?

I see the house put up has some stringy waste, possibly due to it being extruded??

Just when you think you've got mold lines and flash figured, they hit you with new stuff.

Master Caster23 Mar 2023 8:08 p.m. PST

Thanks for answering Jens. I'll give it a try: want to make one for water/naval and another for land.

Personal logo Old Contemptible Supporting Member of TMP23 Mar 2023 11:25 p.m. PST

The two that are painted are really nice. The other ones are in primer?

The H Man Supporting Member of TMP24 Mar 2023 1:44 a.m. PST

I'm noticing a lot more stay bits, print lines and the like.

For goddess sake don't go down that rabbit hole and start looking for them.

So, I'm assuming they are not primed, as they haven't been cleaned.

Then again, the painted drawbridge has lots of lines and at least one stray bit in a window.

My assumption is the resin/plastic is grey.

Why medieval buildings are not electric blue or neon yellow, I'll never know.

Personal logo jensutkremp Supporting Member of TMP25 Mar 2023 1:37 a.m. PST

@old contemptible
„ The other ones are in primer?"

no, directly out of printer (FDM). PLA grey

Jens, having been in Ouistreham when you posted these, your site has some excellent resources, I like the 6mm town tiles you've made up too.

The painted 28mm buildings here are lovely – very reminiscent of late 80s/early 90s Warhammer Fantasy dioramas in White Dwarf.

Stunning buildings!
