3D Printing a Miniature Cityscape Diorama!

Cue the 3D printing timelapse music because it's time for another resin print showcase. Norm shares two projects he's been tinkering with, starting with a beautifully modeled cityscape designed by The Lazy Forger. Created for 6mm scale tabletop gaming, this set of buildings are also ripe for making diorama bases for display models or other printed figures. We also use Meshmixer to slice a character portrait for a quick and easy mixed media aesthetic.

Tested From Home: Jeremy's PinSim Mini Virtual Pinball Controller!

Jeremy checks in from home to show what projects he's been working on during lockdown, including repairing an RC car, large LEGO build, and upgrading the code on his Game Frame LED display. We also dive into Jeremy's Pinball obsession, with a quick look at his Pinball machine collection, wall-mounted playfield, and laser-cut PinSim virtual pinball controller design that you can make at home! Two of these controllers are up for auction with all the proceeds going to charity!
