1:144 Palace Roombox Project

Continuing to get ready for the OMEGA Miniatures Show and Sale, I starting playing around with a 3d printed roombox idea where you could use the box to make a little miniature scene – or – fit it together with other boxes to make a house – or – add even more boxes to make a whole castle!  First – the basic room box.  Here are some pictures of the roombox, and how it can be stacked.

Designed a little 1:144 scale Gypsy Caravan

I’m gearing up for the Omega Miniatures Show and Sale, and for that I’ve designed a little caravan in 1:144 scale and printed it on my 3d printer.

This scale is also known as “dollhouse for a dollhouse” scale.  Which means that you could use this as a house for the tiniest gypsies, or you could place it as a toy in a dollhouse playroom.  My style often tends to veer towards the fantasy proportions of toys and games.

When I’ve got some of these painted for the show, I’ll make another post.

Teacup Dragon

The Queen of Teacup Dragons! She is waiting patiently for her Lady Grey. Printed on an UP! 3d Printer in white ABS, she is designed as a puppet with the ability to move her head and mouth. This is another design entered into the “pet monster” contest sponsored by Makerbot and 3D Artist Magazine.

This is one of my entries into the “Pet Monster” contest sponsored by Makerbot and 3D Artist Magazine. This little guy is not pleased that he has to wear leftovers at Halloween again… He was printed in on UP! printer and painted with eggshell finish acrylics.

Here is a newly 3d printed candlestick I designed. It uses a MagLite Solitaire flashlight as a source, and the 3d print diffuses the light enough to be suitable for reading, writing, and arithmatic, as well as more esoteric mood enhancing reasons.  Check out the video!

Lucky Cat!

Hey! Check out the latest thing that came jumping off my 3d printer.  It’s Lucky Cat!  But not just any lucky beckoning cat from japanese tradition – it’s got the collectable charm of low brow art toys.  You won’t see things like this rolling off of home printers for long.  This “look” will change as the technology becomes more sophisticated and give surfaces a smooth and polished finish.  I like the home grown feel of this current texture, and, I think, because this look won’t last long that items like these will become highly collectable.  At least I’m hoping! 🙂 You can check a few more photos of her at my Etsy store: www.etsy.com/whystler.
