All these little buildings lately make me want to show off some of the things I’ve been working on. I’ve been a wargammer for years and when I got a laser cutter of course I decided I needed to design some scenery for my games. Here’s a set of train tracks and a train that I came up with.
That’s nice finishing work. Care to share your process a bit?
Nice job! Love to hear some process detail, too!
Thanks, I work in rhino so I drew all these parts out there. I don’t really sketch much I kinda just doodle around with the 3d model until I get it the way I want it to look. I’ve found a couple scripts that make adding the little finger joints easy. From there it was pretty easy to lay them all flat and export cut files.
I also made assembly guides for those I used rhino to generate the exploded views and then put it all together in indesign.
The cut files are on thingverse if you want to try it out.
I thought the first photo was a train track inspired creature!
Those elevated tracks are PRIMO! I love them. And your paint job is awesome too.
I would love to see a picture of it on a table. Did you make enough of them to have a full track?
The tracks are fantastic. Trains are great too!
Are the tracks meant to look like creatures, or is that just coincidence?
that is really cool.
Wow, you should post a pic of the complete set up. It must be awesome.
That was just a happy little coincidence.
Looks great! Your train is awesome, and I love that a warhammer crate fits on the wagon.
I sell some laser-cut terrain on Etsy (and at local game events before Covid). Here’s a table I put together: Miniature Gaming Terrain
Those two sections of track look like creatures waiting to be called into battle.
