Hello everyone, posting this here as it could be useful for a few people!

For some members of the RL working as a group on the Battle Handmaiden, I 3D modelled the belt buckle to be printed!

You will find all the files here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4622011

There are 2 versions, flat and curved. Each either to make your own buckle from thick wire, and glue on an off-the-shelf belt buckle Wink

Here is a sneak peak of the 3D model


A regular FDM (plastic) printer will not get the tiny crosses details, but you'll have a good base to finish sculpting those. (For which I think I would recommend warming the tip of a tiny flat screwdriver with a flame, and then punch it in the plastic to make a small mark).
Hopefully SLA (resin) printers will be able to print all the details though ! Smile

If anyone prints it, I would be thankful for a little picture Wink

What detail level are you printing at? I've had some great results at 0.1 mm.

Whatever the layer height, the nozzle diameter is the problem in this case I would said. Those tiny details are 2-3 by .6 mm, with a depth of only .2 mm.
As such, I really doubt those details will come nicely clear and sharp out of an FDM printer. Which is why I recommend the SLA if accessible.
Not that I haven't been able to test print this model so I don't know exactly the level of details passing in the print, maybe I'm wrong and there is much more than I think. That being said, you should still see the traces of it to use for punching it with something like a screwdriver Wink
I would add, that given you probably have to finish the surface with an FDM printer, whichever finition method you choose, you will lose some details in the process which is why I doubted the FDM one would work for the tiny details Wink
(But to answer your question, I can technically go down to 0.05mm layers, but rarely go below .1mm and usually print between .15 and .25 depending what I do and the size!)

Thank you for your nice comment! Smile With pleasure for the sharing!
I released that I didn't shared on the forums a couple of the 3D models I did for the RLGS Embarassed I'll need to solve that in the near future! Smile

Hmmm interesting. I'm curious now. I might print one just to see and then post pictures for you.

That would be great. Very Happy I think we're all curious here.

I did it!

But I did it first and seen the post just now, so I can share only the finished part:





A colleagueprinted it on his 300-500$ hobby printer. Does great things, within the budget, though. The horizontal bar was the most visible flaw, as it had several (10?) visible steps. The four "roses"/"nails" near the corners were inaccurate and different from each other due to print quality and had to suffer/flatten. Flat surfaces and details were partially indistinguishable before postprocessing:
- sanded with 100 paper
- sanded with 140 paper
- sanded with 180 paper
- wet sanded few spots with 600 paper
- painted everything with silver metallic Rust-oleum paint. Black was still visible, so painted twice. Second run was thicker than first one, you can see paintbrush strokes
- painted Naboo symbol with golden metallic Rust-oleum paint
- applied very thin black acrylic wash to give the edges a bit of life

I'm satisfied with the slightly rugged/imperfect look, but both better print quality and painting skills can achieve better results. Thank you for designing it!

Not bad despite the issues you had. Smile

Great job on the finishing and painting! Smile

I do have a little request, if you have (or your printer friend have) a thingiverse account, could you please post a "make" of the object on my 3D model ? ^^ It's always nice to increase a bit the visibility Very Happy

Regarding the 4 roses, hum, not sure what you mean by "different". Their semi ~spherical shape should be the same, however, their "stamping" is slightly different from one another by design. If you look at the original belt buckle, the positions of the stamping slightly change from one rose to the other Wink


BTW Naglium, I've seen some people printing it on FDM printer, looks better than I expected for all the details! You were right.
Still, if people have access to a SLA resin printer, I did the test, the result is much cleaner and more importantly sharper on the detail (something you can't change in the post process) and will need much less post processing work.

My husband printed the curved version in PLA + on a Craftbot printer. This is what it looks like straight off the printer bed with no post-processing or finishing. He's thinking using a craft epoxy like XTC and then rub and buff, but he thinks a primer coat and the rub and buff might work too.

Wonderful to have this option available! Thanks for the work/share and love seeing everyone working on it.
