Beginner? Budget?   You know what? Personally and professionally I have a hard time giving it that label because of it's assumed quality that way as well as calling it budget because it's simply outperformed printers in much higher brackets so far. I'll do my best to explain why along the way and include some current final thoughts for you to think about. You'll notice it being difficult for me to contain my enthusiasm at times because well, I don't have problems with printers in general. I have set procedures and after working with hundreds of printers over the years now it takes alot to get me going.   This one actually does.   I did a earlier teaser video, and at the time my studio camera was on duty elsewhere, but in retrospect I'm glad its not embellished with lighting that can mislead print quality. It's just there and no voodoo, the prints are great. I suppose I'll board later with studio shots of prints but prefer to highlight those on the upcoming live stream shows. Stay tuned there.   
    This won't be a typical review- I hate them anyways. (I like my reputation just the way it is) This is not an affiliate blog or paid Youtube channel of things that will be redone countless times, I want to highlight what sets it apart and give you my conclusions- as you already know I run these through the ringers. I'll spare the...

Man it has gotten easier. I'm old school, and been casting at home and in business since the late 80's. I was first introduced to casting back then while being taken under the wing of a Ral Partha artist as a sculptor. Fast forward a little bit and then an introduction to early (and very expensive) resin printing. So both for being taught and learning the ropes behind creation to finished cast, Ive spent a good portion of my life doing it, trying new things and making many, many mistakes. You will too, but in comparison, far less and alot less expensive.     This post may contain affiliate links and I may earn a small commission when you click on the links at no additional cost to you.

Duncan has been around for quite some time, and back in the early days of resin printing I remember him first launching his Patreon. He's been kicking ass ever since and another one of the "hardest working guys in the model game".   "I'm a digital sculptor who has tons of passion for what I do. I specializes in digital sculpting for 3d printing in the collectables and toy industry. I've worked on many projects with company's such as Steamforged Games, Mierce Miniatures, Mantic Games, Modiphius Entertainment, GCT Studios, Paranoid Miniatures, Spectre Miniatures and many more.  I currently spend all of my time sculpting for my Patrons as well as personal projects."   {igallery id=6248|cid=5|pid=4|type=category|children=0|addlinks=0|tags=|limit=0}  ...

Megs is the definition of detail. You can easily get lost in browsing the work this man has done. Resident in the Philippines, and probably one of the nicest guys to chat with. Each month or so is like a Christmas lightshow you have never seen before. Marvel, DC, Fantasy, name it. Printing and painting some of thes emodels will challenge anyone to do the sculptures justice... Its rare I get humbled just from looking at model work, and his puts me there easily. "Some things are better seen than heard. With Megs Empinado, a 3D artist with an impressive portfolio wrought by years of long industry experience, this is not far from the truth. Mr. Empinado’s artistry through Zbrush is indicative of his attention to the detals of human anatomy. He has a good sense of character design that allows him not only liberty over his creations but a certain originality that he brands over well-known characters of Pop Culture."   {igallery id=5022|cid=7|pid=4|type=category|children=0|addlinks=0|tags=|limit=0}  ...
