Re: Resin Cast Terrain Tiles - All colors and translucent!

Raising this thread from the dead now that I'm back. My resin casting skills have improved since this original post and I have more experience casting with color additives and powders (metallic, glow in the dark etc) and pressure casting for super translucent casting and doing semi-ridged rubber castings.



Is there still any interest or demand for particular terrain pieces or figure/base molds for that matter?

I'd love to see if you can easily create a mold for the bottom base on the RttFF Trees.

Those are super easy to make on my 3d printer. I just made 24 of them for custom mounted terrain. I used to mold them as well. This way is far easier and cheaper.

I gotta get a 3D printer then.

I have been printing a set of 4 of them at a time. The quality is great and I print the set of 4 in a little shy of 3 hrs. I could go faster but the quality is perfect at those settings. I have been doing crystal clusters and little portals and a bunch of other cool stuff mounted to them. You can also print rock out crops, glaciers, and heroscape tiles. I printed out 2 dungeon rock outcrop sets as prizes and 2 WoSaGa figures as prizes for the last Utah monthly tournament. All the files are free on thingiverse along with a pretty great collection on here. Totally worth it.

Re: Resin Cast Terrain Tiles - All colors and translucent!

Not sure how that’s faster when a resin casting only takes an hour to cure and can be solid and durable and crystal clear at the same time. Resin is also cheaper than printing and can easily be dyed different colors each batch, as well as being an exact duplicate of the original with no print lines or cleanup.

I suppose it all depends on the resin and how you work though. I use smoothcast 325 that cures really fast and has a high break strength and casts clear with my pressure pot.

Sorry to derail your thread. I do like casting and have in the past. They are both fun ways of creating new toys.

Re: Resin Cast Terrain Tiles - All colors and translucent!

Cant quite get the green to match but here is my finished jungle tile with mostly matching plants. The one color is a bit off and the short bush isnt EXACT, but its pretty darn close. Real one on the right.

Re: Resin Cast Terrain Tiles - All colors and translucent!

Yup two part mold. I messed up and forgot to do decent locking keys so it just has a few little locking spots but itís worked alright.
