A month or 2 ago one of the Infinity: The Game community contacted me say he was planning on using my 28mm scale weapon files that I make for tabletop conversions to make him self a Cosplay variant of the weapon and I was intrigued.
I decided to give it a try myself and picked the recently released Nomad Pistol to try, it’s my favourite pistol so far and I wanted to start small.
I took some measurements from the file and my hand and initially settled on scaling the file to 50x the 28mm file. To test the size I cut the file in half and printed a few layers from the middle of it.
This turned out to be huge and needed shrinking again. 75% of the first print (so 3750% for the original file), printed another 2 layer slice and this was a much better size. Also fit on the build plate in one piece.
After settling on the size I took the file into Microsoft 3d builder to slice it in half and add holes for pieces of filament to align the halves afterwards. I then used Cura to slice the files ready to print. Using the Adaptive Layers feature in Cura I ended up with a layer height between 0.12mm and 0.28mm depending on the angle of the part.
Printed in 3dPrintz Blue Grey PLA on my Ender 5 Plus.
And then assembled using 20mm pieces of filament as pins and clamped until set.
And here it is ready for sanding.
Part 2: Sanding and Prepping for paint coming soon.
A little bonus this week to keep me on track, I did the NA2 batch that came second in the last poll. ADHL, Anaconda Spitfire and Operator Spitfire.
So time to vote for the next set to be done. I’m still figuring out the best way to display the files for the posts so if anyone has any tips or likes/doesn’t like a particular way I’ve tried then please let me know.
Just before the weekend I started up a Patreon for working on 3d STL files for weapons and equipment from Infinity: The Game, a project I started a while ago but which lacked direction. Hopefully Patreon will help me to keep on track and get some community feedback into what it desired next.
The first batch of weapons was voted for over the weekend and after a flase start this morning I managed to get them done this afternoon. So without further ado I present the Pan-O MULTI Rifle, Pistol and Combi Rifle variants.
