Frequently Asked Questions
Make sure both pieces are smooth and flush.
You can use a small file, clippers, or sandpaper
to get rid of any rough edges or surfaces and any
stringing. We have tried many types of glue but our
favorite is Loctite Super Glue Ultragel Control.
All you need to do is put a little bit on each piece
and then hold them tightly for a few minutes.Last updated:
We have used so many and have found that they all behave
differently depending on the printer and the temperature
in the room. Our overall favorites are CCTREE and Hatchbox.
It's difficult to find the perfect shades of grey and brown!
These are the best looking and best printing!Last updated:
Many instruction manuals will say that you don't need anything
to adhere your print to the bed, however, this is rarely the case.
The only instance in which we do not use anything is on our Ender 3
with a glass bed. The printer does not come with a glass bed but you
can easily purchase a piece and connect it to the bed with clips.
This eliminates problems from the bed warping and it heats up quickly
and evenly. This surface doesn't need anything for adherence.
Our other printers (Prusa) do need something to help the prints stick.
We have had the best luck with a regular glue stick. We use it
liberally (you don't need to reapply it after each print and you don't need to
clean your bed between prints.) When you do want to clean your bed, just
spray it with window cleaner, wait a few moments, then wipe it off
with a paper towel.Last updated:

YES! They are completely support-free. There are no built in supports and you don't need to generate them. Every single one of our miniatures (besides the SHH line) is completely support-free. When a model is too large or complex to print in one piece with no supports, we slice it appropriately for you to connect. You won't have any messy supports to sand down or snap off to break your 12 hour print!
*we do all of our prints in pla with the base so we cannot promise your resin prints won't need supports or your baseless versions won't need them. However...we do have MANY customers who do print with resin and they have all printed great with no supports.Last updated:

Yes! We have our Printing Partners listed on our website. I am always updating the list. You can contact them to see what's available!
No, we will not. Please add up everything you want and put that in your total. We are running for 5 weeks so you do have some time to pull some funds together.Last updated:

We used our Prusa i3 mk3 printers and our Ender 3 for everything here. I recommend the Ender because it's cheap and reliable. The prints we get from our Ender 3 are so high-quality that many of them could pass for resin. You can get your Ender 3 from Amazon for around $230. Youll save a ton of money by printing your own miniatures!Last updated:
