Welcome at FreeTime Toys

Hello everybody and welcome here. This blog will be dedicated to the few toys projects I will do during my free time. You can expect some toys rehab, some design adaptation and some brand new design.

If you are here you probably know my taste for Jumbo Machinder, so most of my projects are related to those big guys. Hope you will enjoy it.

Mini Q9

A quick update on a current project: The mini Q9
One of the company I work with for the 3D print had a new printer for test, with a better quality and level of details so I wanted to do a quick test and decided to print the little Q9, the 10 cm high version.
The result is impressive and almost doesn't require post process. It's also funny because the material is semi transparent and I really dig the look of it. I will probably order another one for painting and keep that one like that. It could be even more transparent but the part are too small and there's still support material inside the small part like the arms and the heads. I will maybe try to get rid of it and have a more clear look.

Anyway, it's a good experience, it's a bit more expensive but I was able to make that one hollow as the properties of the material allow me to make thin surface. So in a way, even if the price per cubic cm is more expensive the price was cheaper than the previous one I made. I'm almost tempted to make it available for sale for a few weeks. But I'm not sure yet.

Here's a pict of this tiny guy.

The semi transparent look makes it hard to see the details, especially on the heads, I will try to make other pictures later when I have some time.
