Artel Miniatures' Dwarf Lord - Who needs SLA anyway? 🙂

Artel Miniatures' Dwarf Lord - Who needs SLA anyway? 🙂

Just wanted to say that now it's fully tuned up and fitted with a 0.25mm nozzle, the Prusa MINI I got is capable of doing some amazing stuff. A little while ago Artel released a lot of their older resin-cast miniatures' STL files, and their "Dwarf Lord" looked like the most FDM-suitable model in the lot (Minimal overhangs easily overcome by addition of occasional conical supports and precision slicing). The results are in the picture below, with the one on the left using Prusa's default "Generic ABS" setting at 0.05mm layer height, and the one on the right slowed by a factor of 6, with the fan turned on after the first 10-25 layers to minimise dragging of unset plastic, and a 5mm brim to prevent warp-related detachment from the bed due to said fan. The horns on both were done at the slow setting, as they were just mush without. I've left the arm off the right one because it'll be easier to paint then fix on afterwards.

Edit: For information, the models are 33mm from base to horn tips.
