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.

Super tiny Garada K7

Ok ok I know, it's another post with Garada K7 related stuff.
But hey, once you have a 3D file it's always funny to test and experiment stuff with it.
For the tiny  Q9 I've test a 3D printer and I wanted to test it even more but back then, the company had huge problems with delivery schedule. The tiny Q9 was hollow and I wanted to print something but plain to have the transparent feeling more strong. So I checked and it seems that the schedule problem was long gone and so I've launch a test print with a tiny Garada. The result is pretty impressive, this printer have a really good resolution, way much better than the one I'm using to print the full size version, but more expensive also. For each size and each project there's a more suitable 3D printer and it's good to know a bit more about those to optimize each project.

So here's a little quick and dirty pict of this tiny Garada. Now I'm tempted to cans it a bit and then paint it, but the transparent feeling is great. Maybe I need to order another one :))

As you can see, he's standing on a can and he's pretty small, around 8 cm high. Funny to look at this tiny guy.

And here's a little edit with extra pict of this tiny guy next to his brother, the mini Garada K7, as you can see I've build him a tiny box too.
