" In the past my goal as a collector of figures was, to get all figures ever produced in 1/72 scale. The big challenge so far was to lay my hands on old German figures from the period of 1900-1930.

Now with the 3D-technology it even became worse:-) At first I was not happy with 3D products, they broke too easy. I have made first test-buyings from Ebay or Etsy. Also my friend Michael printed some for me…"

I wouldn't worry about 3d prints, in this case.

Every man and his dog seem to me making files of varying quality. Then you'd have to have one of each in every print quality as well, for a true collection. Unless you only got the best quality, which is expensive and always changing.

Its a spanner best avoided.

Unfortunately, big comps are printing masters, so even traditional plastic/resin/metal may use printed masters. In these cases your bound by the quality they print at. Even printed GW resin figures have lines.

But if you going to collect all 1/72 ever made, what's a few more matter?

The breaking is due to what resin they used to print. standard resins are very brittle. A very common ting is to use a mixture of standard, and a flexible resin, like tenacious, which gives them just enough flexibility to be pretty strong. I'm sure resin figures will not last as long as plastic, or lead, but probably long enough for my life time.

> to get all figures ever produced in 1/72 scale

Easily accomplished. I will start with that as soon as I have read read all books ever published and then watched all movies, series and shows ever produced.

At least its cheaper then to collect all cars ever produced. And easier to store. Considering the mess I already live in with only collecting 28mm miniatures without any notion of getting "all figures", this is a minor advantage.
