3D printing is a fast and upcoming way of not just rapid prototyping, but a whole new way of producing products on demand. Covered here are my ventures into 3D design, software and printing.

WIP - painting the chain maille!
This dice bag is one of my models that I had Shapeways print for me. The dice bag is made up of 319 seperate rings and I thought it would be nice to try and paint them.
I had a bit of a brain-fart and decided to dip-paint my Chainmaille dice bag in Sliver Acrylic paint. The image shows the dice bag after 5or 6 dips. It's slow going, I think I diluted the paint too much (10:1). The mica in the paint is starting to stick and there's a few glints of light here and there.
