    I'm sticking to F3 and F3:NV mostly because that's my nostalgia bomb. Currently working on a Pipboy 3000 and Euclid's C-Finder for my Courier costume.

    Yet I don`t understand some people that say, that 3D printing is cheating, that its easy mode of doing props, and nobody seem to realize how much work needs to be put into some designs

    I can kind of see their point of view if their knowledge of the 3D printing world is go search on MyMiniFactory, download, print, cosplay. That's definitely easy mode.

    Where I get mad is when people say, "Oh you just printed that?". No, I didn't just print it. I spent 5-10 hours preparing a digital model based on an obscure screen shot, used knowledge I've built up over years on how to best print it, smoothed and sanded it for another god knows how long, added electronics and then painted it over the course of several days. There's plenty of skill required to make a printed piece look good and it's time consuming to do it just like any other craft. Just because I get a machine to precision build a part doesn't make any part of this easy. If it looks easy, then I must be doing my job well. </rant>

    yeah that`s true allot of people work on principle of download and print, where i sometimes do that for the sake of saving time, most of my stuff i worked on for hours, if not months learning how to use zBrush (lucky enough i can use my old company floating licence) and yet i hear sometimes oh You just printed that, not to mention time i spent Building my printer and tuning it in

    Yes, all printed myself, although those are downloaded models with only little tweaks done by me, soon will post something of my own design, but first need to wait for filament to arrive :) 10kg on the way:)
