A few years back Sea Dog Game studios invested in a basic 3D printer. Today we operate 7, and that number is likely to rise again very soon.  Initially we mainly saw the printer as a way to create prototypes for models we then made molds of, but today as i write this we are pushing the envelope to actually PRODUCE models on 3d printers! This allows us react to the needs of our customers and offer models in several scales. We can even create quickly generated “mods” at user request! I thought I’d take a moment to look at where we are in 2017

The Beast, a 2015 digital reculpt of an old hand sculpt from 2008!

A render of our first ship offered in three scales – The Buccaneer Sloop! We can use these renders to produce nicer directions as well.

Things printed with this SLA UV cure resin/laser printer cost more, but have a masterpiece museum grade finish.

 

We hope you enjoyed this look at how 3D printing is upping our game. For the latest you can check out our various Facebook feeds, or visit us at a show near you!
