Certainly not badly painted but it shows that it is a 3D printed model. Was that the best quality and or material?

@MacrossVF1: yes it was the best quality, Frosted Ultra Detail.

Straight panels look pretty good, but curves are not well manufactured yet as you can see.
If you have the model in hand, it's not that obvious actually as it's only 20mm long (4/5th of an inch for my US friends), the pictures you see are zoomed at least twice. I was a bit surprised when I compared the pictures to the model as I did not expect so many flaws from a mark 0 eyeball inspection.

The problem is also increased a bit by my sponge technique for weathering, I'm trying a new technique for Anakin craft, we'll see how it goes.

I have painted one 3D printed model myself (an alternative Necromunda model a friend gave me with the instructions to 'go nuts') and seen a few others (mainly alternative Flames of War tanks) and it is clear to me that 3D printers are not quite good enough yet. In 5 to 10 years time they will most likely reach the level they need to be at to compete with more conventional methods but for now I mostly avoid 3D printed models.

A lot of the issues with 3d models can be minimized by taking them into account when designing the model. They usually cant be helped it the model is one downloaded from the net. But when built from scratch with an eye for the process the stepping and layering can be all but eliminated.

My next attempt with the Eta-2 from Shapeways:

The grain is still there (especially behind the cockpit) but much less visible.

Thanks!

I wrote a small article with pictures of the ETA-2 in their raw state and various states of preparation:

@Gosric : from what I've seen of the models, it does depend on the shape of the structure but for curved areas I don't see how you could get better results. Do you have a couple of exemples?

Hi, thank you so much for this tutorial.
I like the way you do the bases. Sometimes these colourfull bases with colourfull shipps could be too much. Especially for me who wants colourfull imperials and not only grey stuff. I enjoy your blog.
Mercy beaucop!

th_Warmachine3_zps026011f7.jpg

 

That os in WSF so not even the good quality

or in  arather inappropriaate postchoicevone of my Trek ships

 

th_tra_zpsbfd447ec.jpg

 

again in WSF

And lastly in WSF again my Z-96 (which i know doesnt look like the accepted version.That is becasue it was based on the description in the book Han Solo at Stars End. Im stubborn that way

It is still a light risk even using the tricks but getting things in detail materail can pretty much reduce the risk to almost nothing

I like the horizontal lines. I went with red vertical on a few of mine. Excellent. I may have to redo mine now that I have thought of a new way to distinguish them. I want my Ties to be more uniform. Different colors are fine for the rebels but you have shown me that a swarm of uniform Ties looks awesome!

My swarm looks far more ragtag.

@Gosric: do you have an exemple in FUD to see the best we can get? Because looking at the photos I can clearly see the same kind of grain as in Mel models.

 

@TabletopXwingPilot: My Ties are on the frontline, they don't have time for such personalisation! :)

 

@DarkCurse : thanks, love your work. The various tints and colors really make the models pop. You have a way with desaturated colors that reminds me a lot of the new wave of 40K painters.
