Hey guys, I posted my dioramas here (back when I made them with my hands, like a gorilla or something) a million years years ago under the name "a1d". I've since moved on to 3D printing, and design all of my stuff on the 'puters now, and wanted to share some (I've already posted a few in the 3D printing thread).

Anyway, my latest:

Love these, the Armorer dio is brilliant because it allows for a single piece with floor and way to attach the parts hanging from above. I've been trying to imagine how to accomplish that for a number of things, just fantastic in how well it pulls the whole scene together.

Thanks, so much, for all the kind words. I went ahead and threw together an album so I don't keep pestering everyone here. It's updated daily:

OK, I lied about posting any more because I'm an attention *****. And I rhyme. Which makes it twice as bad.

Or twice as good. Nib will provide some phat beats, keep kickin' out the jams.

I'm just sippin' on some java, while Anakin surfs the lava
Qui-Gon chillin on Naboo watching Charvey doin' his voodoo
True, Hasbro gave us Tantive Four but I'm always eager for more

Is phat still a thing that we say? Asking because I'm old. Either way, accepted.

This is a valid message. Perhaps.

ETA: Perhaps.

Also ETA, but I guess this is a new post so nevermind. I'm probably going to forget what I've posted and what I haven't, so just yell at me if I do.

What do you print on? I’ve got an Elegoo Mars 2 Pro and Saturn. 3D printing is really fun but there’s definitely a learning curve to it. At some point I’d like to try a filament 3D printer.

I've got a couple little Ender clones that work surprisingly well, though a bit temperamental. Started out with a Flashforge (would not recommend). I would like to get into resin printing, but the improvements are coming so fast these days along with falling prices. Besides, since I started designing more or less full time, I haven't had the opportunity to mess with it.

Sorry if I missed it, but do you sell these somewhere?

I sell the 3D models (you can find the link to my stuff in the "about" section of my profile). If you can't print them yourself, I have several printers who do. PM me the country you're in, if you're interested. Thanks!

If I'm running up against any forum rules with this post, let me know, delete, or whatever you do.

...And still another week has gone by. Here's some of the new and updated stuff I've done. Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it.

ETA: Profundity Corridor.

Just wanted to say how incredible Chancellor Palpatine's private office looks! Are you planning on doing additional pieces from his office (main room / corridor)?

Thanks so much! It was a request specifically in that size and layout from one of my patrons, but if there's enough interest, I may get around to adding to it. I've got a million things going on at the moment, but always looking out for new ideas.

I've been buying your pieces for months from a guy in Sri Lanka off eBay and have paid the exhorbitant shipping fees because your work is so outstanding. The small dioramas fit so perfectly in the Ikea CD racks that I use for smaller 2-4 figure dios. When I realized that my last order was nearly $200, your pieces made me pull the trigger on a printer and I got one last week and I've been stalking your cults page for the last couple days for my next couple of prints that I'm going to tackle. . I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you're contributing to the community.
