We recommend a layer height between 0.1mm and 0.2mm. We ran most of our prints at 0.12mm layer height for the level of detail you can see in the video, but also experimented at 0.2mm with excellent results as well. Lower layer height is recommended for parts like the head and neck.Last updated:
Some do and others don't.
- The Ice Twin and the Fire Twin do not require supports. The wings come with pre-generated supports on both models, so no support generation is required.
- The other dragons do require supports on most pieces and are being provided in orientations that worked best for us using auto-generation with various slicers including Cura and Simplify3D.Last updated:
That depends on what size you want to print them! Many of the dragons will fit (in the native 4'' base diameter size) on a 150x150mm bed, but some are so large that they need a 200x200mm bed.
One of the things that we've been doing this whole time though is printing the dragons at different sizes in both FDM and resin. These dragons are made with detail to be printed at 5'', but print perfectly fine at 2'' and 3''. Most commonly tested though have been 3'' and 4'' (which all of them fit at least 3'', and most in 4'').Last updated:
Yes! All of these files, with the exception of the Kickstarter exclusives, will be available on our web store after fulfillment - but will cost more than they do collectively through the Kickstarter.Last updated:
$40+ backers will receive a poll after the campaign is over once we've determined how many of the Phase 4 dragons will be modeled depending on how many stretch goals are unlocked. $60+ backers will receive a poll after the initial Phase 2/3 dragons are sculpted to determine which of the dragons they want a 2nd pose for (for the 4 alternate poses stretch goals).Last updated:
YES! This is just the start for us - but our priority will be to deliver these models to you all successfully as quickly as possible. We'll be in touch with all of our backers about what's to come to make sure we're making minis you all will actually use.Last updated:
Yes to processing, but not very many for painting and on (unless one of our Master of Dragonkin backers asks for a specific dragon :D) are planned because of how long they take.
That being said, Dillon from Critical Crafting and one of our Contributors, has some pretty cool stuff planned for this. And is a much better painter than me. He's just getting started on YouTube, but check him out if you're looking for more content like this!Last updated:
Most of what you've seen was printed on an Ender 3. One or two of the dragons were printed on a CR-10. I love this little printer, and couldn't recommend it more for folks who are new to 3D printing.
The price to build volume to cost ratio can't be beat for an entry level 3D printer in my opinion, and the quality is simply incredible for the $180-230 price tag. You can check out some of the prints I've gotten on it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDW7g3JOqLALast updated:
We understand that sometimes people can't afford the project at this moment, or find out about the project late. As a result, we will have a limited late pledge period afterwards (but not through a Pledge Manager).
That being said, there are many people who've set their own money aside to be a backer - and we want to make sure we show our appreciation to them for choosing to support our project on Kickstarter.
To be fair to our KS backers, there are certain benefits that Late Pledgers lose by not being a Kickstarter backer:
1) Only the $40 and $60 pledge rewards will be available in the late pledge period
2) Late Pledges don't get to participate in the backer-selected votes
3) Late Pledges will get the models one month after they're released to KS backers
Again, all of this is to be as considerate as possible of folks who back us on Kickstarter, while still getting these models into the hands of folks who were late to the party (or couldn't for one reason or another) without raising the price of the pledges.Last updated:
