Low_Poly_Ninja_TurtlesHad lots of fun printing and painting the Low Poly Hulk model.  Decided to see what other cool low poly models are out there.  When is seen someone made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I just had to do that next.  Printed Leo off first at the size the STL file was.  It was pretty small. So, scaled it up 300%, that will make it much better to paint and display.  After printed the other three turtles.  They all took bit over five hours to print.  Wanted to prime them but it is November now.  Meaning the weather is not so great.  If not, am not sure how will paint will stick to the PLA.  Might have to test that out.  As for the models you can download them yourself > here.

Made a few posts all ready talking about the Low Poly Hulk model form youmagine.com > here.   3D printed it in black PLA.  The prime it in grey.  After that painted it.  It took three coats of green.  Two for the purple and just one for the black.  After I finished painting it.  Had to do a few touch ups with my hand wobbled.  As you can see the picture below.  I think it turned out great.  My next step is to seal it in a clear coat.  The only problem is, its November so the weather can be hit or miss.

A few posts back talked about 3D printing a Low Poly Hulk model that I got from youmagine.com > here.   It took over 19 hours to print and it turned out amazing.  Decided that I will paint.  With only three colours it should be an easy job.  Picked up some green and purple paint.  All ready have some black.  So far as I am typing this (November 12, 2021, have two coats of green on.  Thinking one more should do it.  Then I will move on to the purple pants.  Will post a picture or two when it is done.

Took me about a month but got around to trying the PLA filament I ordered from Filaments.ca.  Found a cool low poly Hulk model over at youmagine.com > here.  It seemed easy to print and simple to paint.  Which I will do at some point.  Scaled the model down at first just to see who well it would turn out.   In which it did.  So, printed it again, just much bigger.  It took about 19 hours and 25 mins.  It looks amazing.  As for the PLA filament it is this one here.  (Sadly, sold out as of typing this November 7, 2021).

Had a happy surprise this past Saturday (October 9, 2021) the PLA Filament I ordered from Filaments.ca arrived.  When I first ordered it, which was a Monday, of that week.  It was estimated to show up at my door on Friday.  When that came and went got thinking it will be some time next week.  This was all Thanksgiving weekend as well.  Thinking that might push it back more.  Well when I came home from work on Saturday it was sitting on the step.  I came nicely packaged.  They even put in two re-sealable bags with salt packs. When I am on vacation plan to test this stuff out.

Filaments_caA few post back talked about ordering some PLA filament.  Right after uploading, went on Filaments.ca and ordered two rolls of basic PLA in black.  This one > here.  At the time of typing this (October 7, 2021) it is on sale for $17.95.  Which seems to be a really good deal.  They do have free shipping if you spend over $125.  Wasn’t going to do that so I had to pay for shipping.  That being said it was cheaper to go though them than to buy two rolls of Amazon.ca.   Should have it my hands some time next week.  Will be back with an update post.

Black_PLA_FilamentAm all most out of filament for my Elegoo Neptune 2.  So I need to ordered some more, in which I need to do soon.  Since I would like to have it on hand before my next vacation.  Was planning on getting some from Amazon.ca, like I did the first time.  However came across a Canadian website called, Filaments.ca.  They have all different types, sizes and brands.  Some of them are even made here in Canada.  They all so have really good price points.  So thinking I will ordered two rolls from them, as long as the shipping doesn’t add up to be more then filament from Amazon.
