/r/3dprinting/ has a decent FAQ but for some reason the tutorial for blender 3d modelling is this ten hour long donut thing aimed at people wanting to 3d model for animation. MrMcAngry is also supposed to be making a 3d modelling centric tutorial and uploading it up on his patreon for free so keep an eye out for that.

For modelling your own stuff, the rule of thumb is Blender for vehicles/robots/armored things and ZBrush for organics. You'll also want Chitubox for prepping the files for printing and MeshMixer to take parts that are separate files and combine them together.

Anyway, the Elegoo Mars Pro is the current standard, so look for printer reviews comparing machines to that.

Aside from that, keep an eye out on thingiverse and cult3d for people to load up files with names like "primary space soldier impulse rhinoceros" "evil space terminators" "blue space communist frisbee robot" and so on.

Also look on patreon to find creators you like.

Question to any industry-minded anons: why don't GW/FW use 3D printing for production line rather than injection molding? They do it for prototyping already. Is it just because of the "resin bad, resin hard!" mentality? Wouldn't if have like two or three orders of magnitude less overhead?

Resin printing is super slow and has plenty of potential points of failure. On top of which the difference in material cost of resin compared to plastic is significant.

That being said there is no reason why GW couldn't introduce a print on demand service for FW like stuff, though they would probably make the price prohibitive. Using the machine is easy, the difficult part is setting up the STL with good supports so it doesn't fail. If they had a couple people at head office doing that for the store to print then it is a viable thing for them to do in future.

People invested in a printer will already be attempting to source STLs to print. If GW makes their prices reasonable then people will be willing to pay them for convenience, just like with any other industry that has piracy. And if the prices are unreasonable then people will start looking for the pirated models, or more likely as we are even seeing now hobbyist made STLs that are almost identical to the actual releases.

More and more people in the hobby are getting printers for various reasons as the price keeps coming down and quality keeps improving. This can also be seen with just how viable STL only kickstarters have become. Your average normie may never get into 3D printing, but sooner or later anyone above entry level in this hobby will either consider it, know someone with a printer already, or get one themselves once they realise the ROI compared to buying legit.

It will impact the people that it will matter to. Maybe not enough to destabalise GW since their business model isn't focused on the long term hobbyists, but sooner or later GW will have to address the trend in some way.

That's not entirely true; GW decided to put all their 'Specialist Games' out to pasture. That was Epic, Warmaster (the Fantasy version of Epic), Battlefleet Gothic, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, Mordheim and Inquisitor (and possibly other titles as well).
My recollection of exactly when this happened is fuzzy. I want to place it between 2004-2007, as I remember my local GW store devoting shelf space to the starter sets for BFG, Necromunda and Mordheim, and hosting Bloodbowl events, but these had disappeared well before 2008.
As for why they dropped the lines, I'm going to guess that some accountant reasoned that GW could get a better return on their shelf-space by clearing out the 'old' titles and focusing more on the 'core' games of 40k, WHFB and LoTR. This is ironic, as some of the games they shelved were fucking excellent, and serve as incredibly rich source materials for video games.

Not OP, but if we're talking prints at that size, I'd probably charge quite a lot. This isn't like casting resin into a mould, prints at that level of detail take a fucking age even if you cram the print volume full (in MSLA printing, print time is a function of purely build height, so it's more efficient to fill up the print bed).
If I were in a position where I was considering selling knockoff warhounds, I'd be looking into creating silicone moulds from the 3D printed master and then casting the parts, very similar to what GW currently does.

Having had a bit of a dig, it looks like I was slightly inaccurate with my dates: the Specialist Games carried on being sold by GW online for a few more years (as evidenced by my having some BFG ships ordered around 2009-2010), but the games pretty much stopped receiving any support past that point.

Epic used to be equally as popular as 40k, but Andy Chambers decided to go really experimental with the 3rd edition and wound up making it overly abstract. On top of that they decided lore parity with 40k meant killing off squats which were the space marines of epic. This killed the line's popularity and reduced it to the level of a specialist game. Later on, they took the knowledge gained from reworking epic 3rd into BFG and released Epic Armageddon, which was a good rules set but didn't have an audience since all the models were forgeworld only and initially limited to the 3rd war for armageddon.

Funnily enough there are plenty of companies that do simply sell rules or miniatures.
Combining the two into one company is a great way to charge a premium mark up for both though.

Nah, SLA printers don't release very many VOCs at all. Running one will keep the air within healthy parameters (ie, within OSHA work environment safety standards) and definitely will not kill you like some jackasses claim. Even FDM, which literally melts ABS/PLA plastic to print the models, can stay within safe levels if you keep the machine in an open space with enough air flow. Definitely do not use an FDM printer in a place like your bedroom though.

As far as touching the stuff goes, you can become sensitive to resin through repeated or prolonged exposure to your skin. That's why you wear gloves when handling the resin before it's cured by UV light.

You can set up an exhaust, but it's not entirely necessary to start working with SLA printers. Although the resin does stink it's not outputting much that can harm you. A few different publications have verified this, along with a few youtubers who ran their own tests with similar results. Different people react differently to the stench though, so some people are particularly prone to finding it repulsive and can't stand being around it for even a minute. Personally I do all my printing in my garage which doubles as a workshop, so to aerate the room (if my meter starts telling me the air quality is approaching dangerous levels, which it has done only once in 3 years) all I have to do is raise the garage door.

Nah. Right wing ideology is founded on the good of your own nation. Thats what a government is for. They are people you elect to look after you and other citizens of your nation. They don't exist to send billions of foreign aid, they don't exist to import millions of people into your nation, they don't exist to attempt to engineer society in particular ways. That is what right wing ideology is based on and thats why lefties are so insufferable. All you people do is sacrifice the good of the nation, and your reasoning has become so dogmatic, the average pleb like you genuinely thinks it is a morally virtuous position to take.
Do you want to know why governments love to import the 3rd world? Do you want to know why they create massive schemes of financial aid instead of systems to help people out of a position where they need aid? Because it wins votes. Migrants vote for the party that invited the. People on handouts vote for more handouts. Why wouldn't they? When people are reliant on the government for everything they have, they vote for that government. The longer that government is in power the more power it can give itself, and the higher taxes it can demand.

And that's the crazy thing to me. On the left their ideologies are exclusively about power. Every single policy is about taking something and putting it under government control, controlling what people can say, controlling what they can see or hear, controlling who gets to be considered for positions. And they've convinced braindead idiots like yourself that its all okay because it's the morally correct thing to do.

In the UK the furlough scheme has cost absolutely billions, and still every fucking brand name in the country is announcing closures and lay offs. Smaller businesses are suggesting they may not survive the summer. And when this is all over and the government has a deficit in the tens or hundreds of billions, where will the recoop the losses? Oh yeah by fucking raising taxes.

All of the things you’ve described are manageable if a couple try gives a fuck about it’s citizens and implements social safety nets.

You’re literally defending killing old people to prop up businesses because you don’t believe in welfare.

I can say with complete confidence that not only would every moral philosopher in human history think you’re speaking from an immoral position. Even Hitler and Mussolini would say your position is indefensible.

>Bodies piling up
Lmao have you read anything about what counts as a Covid death? A fucking motorcyclist who supposedly had Covid dies in a crash and they put down Covid as the cause of death.
In the UK, emergency hospitals were opened, the one in London had a capacity of 4000. By June less than 70 of the beds were in use. "Oh well, if they needed ANY of the beds this must mean the hospitals were overwhelemed right?" except no, because an internal letter was leaked showing that hospitals had been recommended to offload any Covid patients onto the emergency hospitals to free up beds for elective surgery.
>Assuming the government does its job of caring for its people, shit can bounce right back after the plague is gone
This is a fucking fantasy, and not only it wrong, it's demonstrably wrong, as proven by the fact that businesses are still reporting massive shortfalls because people are still scared to go out or not willing to engage with the hassle of social distancing.
>we wouldn't NEED to do full shutdowns if our federal response hadn't been to sit on our thumbs until it was here and spreading
You can look at the fucking countries that did shutdown early and see that they are still fucking locked down, you retard.

I think this is what i really fucking hate about the left, you're fucking delusional. You live in a fantasy world.

Not what I'm saying but the world throws hard choices at you. Either you ruin milliions of lives for the sake of people who have lived lives 3 times longer than their ancestors, or you invest in a future, I have no problem defending the decision i would make there. You can't save the world and you certainly can't save eveyone, whats worse is the amount of lives you're going to ruin trying.

No nobody wants to go out because you've managed to convince them it's a fucking plague instead of an unusually bad flu.
The chances of someone under 50 dying of it are ABSURDLY low, but congrats you've convinced them its the worst thing in the world and now the people are terrified. proud? You should be.
Never mind that vulnerable individuals could have quarantined themselves while the rest of us lived normally. Nah lets instead tell everyon this is disasterously bad and no one's prepared despite proof of officials overestimating the harm. What happened to those 30,000 ventilators New York said they needed at the start of the pandemic? Oh didnt need them? Crazy.
