I answered a few sets as that's what I have for figures but I have a trainload of terrain that I've printed.

Before I retired I worked at a university that had a really high-end printer available for use in the library. I printed out some SF figures I downloaded and they really turned out well. Quality as good as anything you get with purchased sets. This was a resin-type printer. I tried their filament printer and the quality wasn't nearly as good.

None yet – I do have a few on order

Terrain – Yes

My honest answer is "none".

Only reason for that is I can't get my printer set up properly.

Once I get that done I'll have "tons".

Lots of printed ancient galleys with a few metal ones, some 1:285 armor, all my space ships.

None and I have no interest in any such thing.

I bought some Shapeways WW I planes, in 1/144 scale. A small fighter, and a Russian Ilya Muromets heavy bomber -- the world's very first strategic bomber. If it were made of metal, it would likely weigh one pound, or more! In the frosty plastic, it weighs only a few grams! I need to mount it on a thin, wooden dowel, for game play, using Red Baron rules. In metal, this would never be possible, without using a 1-inch diameter dowel! The quality is OK, as this was ordered/printed more than 10 years ago, when the technology was much cruder. In resin, this thing would be superb. Cheers!

I answered a few sets" But i have plans for lots more. My filament printer runs non-stop printing terrain.

No large scale figures, but a growing number of 6mm civilian and otherwise vehicles – Including a superb Scissor lift truck from Hardware Studios that would be a bull b**ch on wheels to have in metal – and a growing number of buildings in the same scale.

Even have an asteroid base and hopefully some starships as well soon, and perhaps a few Dystopian Wars alternate designs as well.
