About this tutorial
Professors Keane and Scanlan from Southampton University have printed out an airplane that flies; This is far more advanced than printing out miniatures. So, when shall we have 3D-files having miniatures we can print out? That requires affordable 3d printers.
Another post inspired by a forum discussion: A Savage World Deluxe buyer complains his hand cramping after writing down all the errata in the book while another one asked why didn't he print out the errata & tape/glue it in place. This isn't so simple; many errata is written in format 'Replace clause X by clause Y' - it might not fit to page at all.
Did you assemble and paint WW2 military aircraft as a kid? I did, although I really didn't like much the glues and paints used in them, the ones I'm using currently in modelling and with miniatures are way easier to handle, an healthier too I guess. I also read Commando -comics and was generally fascinated about technology of The Great War. If you are also Plasticrack addict(tm), you'll be easily tempted to these.
