Saw this yesterday on Ponibooru, needs color and curse you all who have access to 3D printers!
Dear Hasbro: please take note
Or you could make a mold and craft rubber Pinkamenas instead.
Gimmie 3D Printer ;.;
*Throws all his money against the screen, but nothing happens*
I'm impressed! Of all those models, I would have thought Pinkamena would have been the hardest to get to work due to her mane. Assuming it was done as a single piece, anyways.
The problem is 3D printer cost £2000 or you could build your own (http://www.fabathome.org/)
@cyb3rwasteYou kind sir have just made my day.
@Nightmare MoonMy buddy made his own 3D printer, so I'm gonna plead with him to try this!
Oh my, that thing actually looks...SHOW ACCURATE.See, Hasbro? it's not so hard!
...would it be bad if I held up a couple homicide investigations to use the 3D printer they have at the police forensic station my dad works at to use it for this purpose?
> mfw I have never heard of 3D printers beforeHoly sheep tits, that's incredibly cool.
I think I recognize the model used. That's one of Hashbro's, from DA, isn't it?
Well lets just say it cost a lot of money, the material used on a 3D printer is expensive just 4 inch figuring, depending on complexity, can cost as much as 300 dollars I have friends who have done it for their graduation projects also my school owns their own 3D printer, still just as expensive thou. Anyhow I would soooooo spent my money on Pinkie Pie her self =:3
3D printers can be expensive, and its a little tough to program them. but not for an engineering student (a friend of mine has a cheap one) the problem is its not plastic i don't think, the material is pretty soft, if i'm correct i think its a powder. not even strong enough to ship well. i could be wrong i'ma look it up or ask my friend.
This makes me want a MakerBot even more... Speaking of that, does anyone know exactly which printer was used? Seems like a professional model to me.
I had the same idea last week, my 3D print of Rainbow Dash shipped today & should arrive before the end of the week :-) I'll post some pictures then...
When I first heard about 3d printers, my first thought was to make ponies. The herd mind is strong.
@cyb3rwasteDamn, I was hoping that would work..
How does a 3D printer even work ?
My money. That is all.
Someone please make a figure of Luna so i could worship her everyday
Looks like industrial-grade print to me. Sadly it's hard to get the same quality from homemade printers but I *must* finish building my RepRap anyway.
dude my brother is building a 3d printer for college!! i need to hit him up for this! i could get my hands on one of these! why didn't i think of this before? see Hasbro. see what happens when you try and work your way throe back log of old gen stuff. we make our own...
@AnonymousOh there are lots of methods. Sintering powdered material, extruding molten material or even solidification of photo-sensitive liquid plastic with a laser beam. All layer by layer.It's a very interesting theme really.
Shapeways and Sculpteo are consumer 3D printing services that will ahppily print these sorts of things for you. Be warned, something like Pinkamena is going to run you about $70, depending if its hollow or not.
http://www.reprap.org/If you gather the parts yourself, you should be able to get yourself a working 3D printer for around $600USD. There's also some good kits out there for around $800(http://www.makergear.com/), and if you don't want to build it yourself there's even a few places to get pre-assembled units, though it's a substantial jump in price($1300-$1500).The downsides are that, relative to the $10,000+ commercial units, RepRaps tend to be slower, have slightly lower overall print quality, lack an easily removed support material and if you're not the kind of person who loves fiddling with their equipment to make it work just right, well, you'll probably just find one of these endlessly frustrating.If you can get past all that though, it's a good way to save yourself $9000 or more.
Alright, im going to get a 3D printer.
Just started two weeks work experience with a university faculty of engineering with a whole load of rapid prototypers and CNC routers.Best timing ever.
Oh no.... you... you actually done it. You crossed Pinkamena into the real world! The end is nigh!Craze imagination aside; I would so buy one of these once they're legitimately in stock. Must have G4 Twilight Sparkle.
You do realize that you've doomed us all by finding a sucessful way for Pinkamena to break into our world. It's cupcakes for all of us now, man. Game Over.
This artist, Hashbro, also did a Lyra which is easily my favorite 3D representation of the ponies. Very accurate in a way that KP Squirrel and Melinda didn't quite achieve.
I will shell out a decent amount for true to the show ponies made this way.
I always liked "dark pinkie" better for some reason.
I'll gladly buy one off your hands...
I just checked out how a 3d printer looks like and works... its the coolest thing ever!!
There's such thing as a 3D printer? Why did I not know of this?
All my money, take it.
WANT!Just, my money, take it!
Don't blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't blink. Good Luck.
Finally! Now we can put Hasbro out of business! THAT'S WHAT THEY DESERVE FOR NOT MAKING SHOW-ACCURATE TOYS!
@AnonymousDude if Hasbro went out of business we'd have no new seasons of FiM -.-
*crams wallet into disk drive*TAKE IT! TAKE IT ALL!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!
>I don't even like Pinkamena.The fuck? Pinkie's alter ego has the most character depth of any FiM character!
All my money.Take it.
@cyb3rwaste"Negative. It just impacted on the surface."
With this technology, somepony could make a show accurate and proportionate version of Luna, make a mold out of it, and get a Luna toy 1,000 times better than Hasbro's.
A 3D printer? didn't someone print a kidney, made out of real cells, with one of those? I'm pretty sure it was on tedtalks.
Hey guys!I don't actually own a 3d Printer.Just uploaded my model to Shapeways and ordered it there.Here are some stats for you:Height 7,2cmWidth 3,0cmDepth 7,3cmPrice 27,00€ ( 39.00$ )The size and price will change.Complexity is actually not an issue...They charge 1.50 $ per cm³ volume for this material.I think that includes printing.I'm still trying to figure out a way to make the models cheaper by hollowing them out and playing with materials.The cool thing is that I you can get it printed in sizes ranging from about 3 cm to 58 cm and even steel or sterling silver if you wanted to.
I was hoping this would be a video of the printer in action
I never thought about shapeways... That's suprisingly affordable if you keep it small. Although obviously still fairly steep- £20+.If you could hollow it out a bit and still have structural integrity that would be AWESOME
I like the plot of it.
Don't expect 3D printers to pop out toy-grade figures, they're still in the "infant" stages of development.Right now, they're pretty fragile, so they're best off for prototyping or display pieces.
3D printer aren't good for mass making toys. They are slow and you need to do some sanding to get it right after ward as it goes down layer by layer so it's not too smooth right out of the 3D printer.
We were trying to get this for our engineering and design technical presentation class(HuffytheMagicDragon)
I wish I had a 3D printer, and knew how to use it, of course.
I wonder if we'll ever see a 3D-printed Fluttershy...
The model is life like and is similar to proportions with the 3D model. This is an impressive printing capability.green printing
The new UP Mini 3D Printer from www.3dprintingsystems.com can make that, does anyone have the file and I'll print it on my UP 3d printer?
