More Monsters in 3D

While our testing of the MakerBot Replicator 2 continues I slotted in some more prints of the Loch Dreagan playing pieces. It is interesting to see how the Makerware software and then the printer handle errors in the models, having missing faces etc sometimes isnt noticeable in the final produce, other times it makes a mess (as I might expect).

Anyhow I have only done minor tweaks to the Loch Dreagan 3ds Max model to create these prints. The 5 piece setup takes 29 mins set to a tweaked version of Medium (8% fill, 2 shells and 0.2mm layers). I did start to think about adding some sort of representation of the arms, eyes and other details for the models, but maybe the playing pieces would be better to stay simple, keeping the detail for the cards and artwork...
