3d printed pieces, custom pieces



  • Hi

    i had a thought this autumn to 3d print pieces to use, i just wanted Tiger tanks and such, and things have gone viral from there

    already been concacted from other A&A players to modify scales and such on my models

    Check it out, and let me know if you desire anything i dont have

    if you want many of one piece it is possible to combine models to make it cheaper per item.

    they are available on shapeways.com, just search for Axis & Allies custom pieces

    cheers

    also capitol ships like USS Iowa, USS Arizona, the Yamato, and so on got some pictures on board of G40

    keep getting response thatlink is not allowed, is there any way around? or do i need to have posted a certain amount of posts?

    regards

    When you get between 10 to 20 posts, the administrator will open that privilege for you. Just join one of the many conversations on the forums, and it will open up, before you know it.

    I hope that helps. 🙂

    US: Sherman Calliope, T26E4 Superpershing, M24 Quad gun carrier, British VC firefly’s  and a kingtiger

    Bismarck, scharnhorst(wrong scale atm) Brits: HMS illustrious, HMS hood, HMS Rodney US: USS iowa next to original



  • Where did you get the model files? I’m working on a tabletop simulator version of the game, the main difference is I’m looking for a large list of diverse models, different infantry etc. If you made them and are unwilling to share then I completely understand as well, just thought I’d ask haha.



  • Do you only print the land units in larger scale or are you able to do them in A&A scale? Mainly tank units and the infantry units



  • models are mostly my own, some i’ve downloaded a base and worked from that 🙂

    scale is easily done. but all tanks where no scale is mentioned is made for normal axis and allies (1/285 scale)

    the tanks are from 22-25mm long dependent on real size, but it says on shapeways that it is longer due to the barrel.

    planning on printing on your own printer otahere?  😄



  • @bgugs:

    i’ve made them in A&A scale, if not other scales are mention  :mrgreen: A&A tanks are 1/285 ish



  • Oyvind,

    What kind of 3d printer are you using? reasonable priced or one of the ones that are 1500$ +

    Thanks

    mike



  • i buy them from shapeways,

    i’ve tried to print via some of my friends 3d printers but they come out horrible.
    i think the shapeways printers get out some amazing pieces 🙂

    printed they look very good
