Get Battletechfangirl A 3D Printer To Print Mechs

Project 2022-01-14 09:25:32 +1300

Hello! I am Battletechfangirl from Imgur. You will know me from my Mech a Day posts, that I post every single day and will do until there are no Mechs left to cover. I am an absolute Battletech fanatic, loving everything I can about the BT universe.

For the uninitiated, mechs are giant war robots piloted by soldiers largely in place of tanks, thought anks still exist. They can vary from the small and light 20 tons scout mechs to the massive and lumbering Assault mechs, like the venerable Atlas.

 

I have had a dream of owning a 3d Printer for years, but this has been out of reach. I am a disabled beneficiary, unable to work due to physical and mental reasons, and usually something like this would be out of scope for me, but I want to try make it happen, so I can print, paint and post my own mechs for everyone to see.

The money will be going strictly to materials and equipment, with the majority being on equipment. I have posted the links below to both the printer and the Wash and Cure machine that I will do most of my work with. The printer chosen was the cheapest resin printer I could find in my country, and due to its ease of use and capability for detail, I decided that would be the best one to choose.

The wash and Cure treats the models afterwards, removing excess resin, and honing in on fine details.

The rest of the funds will be going to wards materials, resin, paint, brushes ecetera, and will contribute entirely to those who the the Marauder pledge.

If I reach my goal, this will fufill one of my biggest dreams over the past few years, and any help is appreciated.

For the Maruder Goal, I will ask you what colours you want, and I will do my best to paint them to your specifications. Keep in mind, I haven't painted in years, so I will be rusty. At the very least, I know to water my paints!

For the Dicord role, you will get a priority into my discord, where we discuss Battletech, share our miniatures and models, and maybe play some stream some battletech related games!

Thank you all for any help you can offer. I truly appreciate it.
