I thought i'd start a thread over here to stop spamming into the xmen club thread ( https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/x-men )
Basically I've made a mini wolverine bust that is a replica of the existing wolverine figure but will fit onto the newton ball mod.
The purpose was to retain a more original style of the machine while still getting to use the newton ball.
Some other users have said that their original wolverine fitted onto their newton ball but my glass would hit around face level.
I had a 3d printer so thought i'd give it a shot.
My intention here is to *maybe* see if there is much/any interest in making some of these for people.
These would be more of a kit/"self paint" mod.
I might also explore doing a painted version to see how long it take and if it would could be done for a reasonable price.
Or maybe something in between where I do the main colors and leave details to others.
Painting took me quite for the first one but I was learning a few things along the way that I could maybe streamline a few at once.
Will update this with all the pics.
Note: the one below was printed at 0.2mm ~ 10 hours print time.
All newer ones are atleast 0.1mm ~ 18 hours.
I've tried 0.05mm ~ 2 days of print time but they've all failed to get past 50% of the print so far.
Various states of processing.
Workong on mounting solution and hardware.
Will try out melting a bolt head into the base of one of the failed prints.
Print a sample maximum resolution and compare to 0.1mm when painted with primer.
There may be little to no difference once primed for printing so an extra day of printing.
