    So I realized I posted the original thread in the wrong section (sorry guys). So take 2.

    So, I have a problem with taking on too many projects. With the Hydra MK II in the works, commissions, and another personal armor set. I seem to have fallen down the rabbit hole of another project. I've been itching to print another weapon. The question is which one? The Answer is obvious.

    UNSC SAW [Halo 4/5] by misterchiefcostuming

    Here is the first bit of progress on the weapon.

    Parts are currently gluing together right now, another update tonight. Should have the front half of the weapon complete.

    You do all this printing with a single printer?

    Little known fact about having a 3D printer, the only time it stops is when the power is out or a catastrophic failure happens and it can't run. You're always making something or you become "that friend with the 3D printer that makes cool stuff" and everyone wants some print time.

    This is why I'm looking at getting another one.

    Ya I can’t keep up with the finishing and modeling to keep my printer going. Plus my wife’s not on board with the whole unattended prints idea. So printing is a much slower pace

    All about that UPS. Power outages cannot stop me!! But Charizard is exactly right. Im thinking about getting another too, one for business and one for our projects.

    As promised the update for the evening. Front half all printed and ready to begin some light cleanup. Time to get out the sandpaper.

    Hey if you're going to make a SAW might as well make it the most powerful one in the game ;).

    And....here we go again. Another big update. I've started printing a bunch of parts at the same time taking advantage of that print bed. Got the front half of the drum mag complete. This thing is going to be angry.

    Angry........no. Sexy has hell. Great job Bucs37DK. The more I see of them, the more I want to get a 3D printer myself for props.

    Join me in getting CR-10s! They're super cheap right now and the print quality is fantastic. I'm picking one up later this month so that I can have two machines running at the same time which will hopefully mean I get some time on the printbed to myself.

    If I had the $400 in my pocket I might........but my wife would tackle me to the ground and run to go shopping w/ it.

    The trick is to tell Mrs. Dirtdives that a printer can be used to make many shopping trips currency.

    Mrs. DD doesn't understand and wants nothing to do w/ Cosplay.........well then again, she doesn't understand 1/2 of the hobbies I've picked up over my long years.

    We have reached the point in the project where just looking at her puts a smile on my face. Hydra for scale.
