Nice

Gus Fring09 Jun 2022 12:48 p.m. PST

Yes. Very nice, but even better if each Indian had a different "hair style".

I think that the crew also need two paddlers.
Just my opinion from watching Last of the Mohicans. 😄

I also really like the foot figures.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP09 Jun 2022 2:14 p.m. PST

All good points. I only print them sombody else designs them 🙃

Are the figures printed in the canoe, or printed separately and placed in the canoe?

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP09 Jun 2022 7:24 p.m. PST

No the are individually printed. I can mix up the heads by taking them from some of the other Native American sets.

What material is the canoes and figures made from.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP10 Jun 2022 4:59 a.m. PST

These are 3D printed in resin and then cure to a standard plastic material.

Here is a direct link to all the French and Indian War Print On Demand miniatures I have listed so far.

Hey

I know most people who hear about 3D Print on Demand don't really have any idea what it is. First a designer makes a digital file. Then a person with a 3D printer downloads the file and loads it into a printing program. He then has to arrange all the parts so they will all "print". Then this printing file is saved to a flash drive which is put in their 3D printer and printed. BTW prints can take up to 4 hours. Here is a screen shot of the printing file I created for the Indian Canoe.

As a few mentioned the provide image from the designer uses the same head. I was able to place 5 random heads on my file.

* NOTE: I have purchased the rights to resell these files.

Enjoy

It's come a long way from my AutoCAD 13 days. 😄

Gus Fring10 Jun 2022 8:21 a.m. PST

I really think that printing multiple heads is the way to go, particularly with FIW and AWI.
Just one small example would be British infantry wearing the 1768 Warrant uniform could have options for a regular cocked hat, a fusilier cap, bare head, bandaged head, etc.
Being print on demand, there's no overstock of the fusilier cap. Did, or did not, the Welch Fusiliers wear them in Boston?

Since it's very unlikely that the 1768 Warrant uniform was used in the rest of the war, the New York/Philadelphia campaign uniform would not require different molds. Simply different files.
Ditto the unique Saratoga uniforms, and the "Roundabouts" uniforms.
Light Infantry caps? No problem.
African American heads for Continental or militia bodies.

Anyway, here I am telling a manufacturer how to tie up capital. grin But since files are much cheaper than molds, perhaps it's a possibility.

@Gus Fring

I totally agree but the one thing to remember is that the manufacturer, myself in this case has no say over the authenticity of the models being designed.

They do provide many heads with different hats but this company does take a lot of poetic license. For example his AWI British infantry are all wearing boots :(

The remarkable thing about this technology is that we can do like to suggested, multiples types in one run. We can also print individual poses in multiples. We are not limited to what is in the mold so to speak. You want all firing in a kneeling position. You got it, how many.

Gus Fring10 Jun 2022 10:37 p.m. PST

I simply think that if you are paying for the rights to use the "masters" that you should have some say in the authenticity of the design.
Just saying… 😄

Sorry it doesn't work that way, be nice it it did but i can package them anyway I like. There are many many resellers of these and other Print on demand wares. But for the most part his stuff is good. I sell products from three different designers.

Madox 3D, Medway miniatures and Reconquest Miniatures.

Each has their strong points.

Cheers

I was asked if I could offer just the crews in 40mm as the canoe in 40mm is to big for me to print. I went and did upe each crew and they are now available in 28mm and 40mm.

I checked your website and you offer figures from multiple periods. Any chance of doing some ACW? Wargaming 3D has some nice looking figures.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP13 Jun 2022 6:51 a.m. PST

I can do them as well though I don't have any files yet. What specifically would get you to try some?

avery060213 Jun 2022 1:40 p.m. PST

The website is wargaming3d.com. If you open the following link you should see 3 files. I'm interested in all files, but for now the Confederate figures on the right. Looks like they're all 28mm size. If they print/paint well, I'll certainly buy more.

If the file doesn't open, send me your email and I'll attach the pict.

Let me look into that thanks

We just released the canoe in 40mm today. I had one customer buy two for his 40mm and 54mm soldiers :)
