    Here is the turnaround. I worked on the shoulderpads a bit more and I think I am pretty happy with where it is going.

    I am looking forward to seeing Amik printed out to see his scale compared to the LJN figures.

    Failure...
    I attempted to print Amok. The first print was a partial success the legs and horns came out fantastic.
    The head and part of his back failed. After cleaning the resin, I attempted the arms and waist, to devastating results. Right arm failed at the wrist, left at the bicep. The waist half way through. There was considerable hashing, so I inspected the tray and found laser burns. Now unusable after only 1 liter of resin.
    After curing the waist I realized the one successful part of the first print is unusable because I misaligned the keys in the leg model.

    I am still not sure what caused it. My resin was a sitting in the tray for a two weeks between prints, maybe it was partially coagulated. I also printed at .05MM (Higher resolution than Red-Eye).
    This is how my first Form 1+ behaved right before it took a dive. Took a lot of failed prints and wasted resin and trays, and mirrors before Formlabs replaced it. Not sure I'll be able to get another one a second time around.

    It is such a shame the parts that printed looked so good.
    Those are the breaks...

    Failures happen. You can always try again. It will look amazing when you finish it.

    Sorry to hear about your issues. Don't give up, you are creating something amazing! How much does the resin cost?

    The resin costs about 130 and trays 60. What I am concerned is that my laser may be failing.
    But I am not giving up. Just need to change my approach. I will shift over to using an online printing service like shapeways, this will also give me the opportunity to try some of their newer resin materials like High definition black acrylate
    https://www.shapeways.com/blog/arch...-material-black-high-definition-acrylate.html
    Which looks super slick , and will print with less distortion than my home set up.

    Have you ever tried sculpting parts by hand?

    I have done traditional sculpting, it is not my preferred media.

    2017

    Hello board. 2016 kept me rather busy with my work on Destiny, my 3D printing hobby had to take a back seat. But I am back and resolved to finish this line. I had some issues with AMOK last time I printed it, so I figured let's start back up where I left off. I have redesigned some aspects of him, reworked the anatomy and detailing, and am pretty close to sending it off to Shapeways. I am hoping to get some eyeballs on this and get some feedback from the board to polish off any last bits.
    I am not replicating the original design, more like inspired by.
    Would love to hear your thoughts.

    He looks amazing! He is much leaner than the cartoon version, but this makes him look much more menacing.

    Very cool! I particularly like the second pose from the left. The muscle definition and details are amazing.
