I play warhammer 40k and got a printer because I wanted to make models for my own war game, and have since printed my own very basic designs, and terrain for 40k.

The technology of 3D printing is ridiculous on so many levels. For $300ish I am able to get into small scale professional production. The potential for this tech to solve very serious issues (like with soace shuttle and ISS issue resolution) is amazing but it’s now cheap enough that any middle class person can easily afford a solid filament printer and here I am using it to make toy boats, and obstacles for my little plastic army men to fight around…

Have you actually designed your own miniatures with it? I imagine the design process for something like that could be difficult to get your head around to start with.

Out of interest what armies do you play?

very basic and rudimentary boats yes.
Luckily there are free websites that let you design all you want
