Mr_props @Cykstro. Unfortunately not. Sorry i missed your post, i was very busy in the last months. The thing is, unpolished polyamide allows more daring strucutres to be printed, and this one reaches every bound!

Mr_props Hi! Please note i will try to update this desing by 2016/06/10. I've been working hard on the MkXX version, and i hpe i'll be able to complete it by the deadline. Thank you for all of those who supported me until now. If the MkXX is successfull, I have two options. Either this design will be unavailable as the new version will available, or the 3d files will be available for free. Please tell me what you prefer. Eitehr you prefer to own one of the units i sold so it becomes somekind af a unique thing, or you prefer this to be available to all as a reward for supporting my work. I prefer the second option as a simple 'creative commons' licence can be applied. Best :)

Ersatz MkII action figure Female Body
Mr_props @TotallyNotTheDevil. Hello! I'm sorry, but creating sprues is a real hell, and there were too many troubles adpting the model to 'polished' guidelines. The objects would be polished unevenly creating issues with the joints, and the sprue may break. However, you may get a smooth surface finish by using thick car body primer, but i have to admit it still requires some work, mostly sanding. Changing the size might be hard, as polyamide is quite sturdy, and you would have to cut neack limb in the middle to add a piece of plactic, glue with cyanoacrylate or epoxy, then sand/prime/sand. Feasable, but a tough work. Good luck :)

Mr_props @Rebf, Thanks, i'm thinking about it. I have to prepare a new parts layout and design, but i'm still worried there could be some support material trapped in the hollow pieces. I took a look at the materials' guidelines and oredered a sample prouct, i guess this will help me iterate with the design :)

Mr_props @benjamin_collins_1995. It should work, after all this is a modified ego model, and it was the purpose. Now i'm not talking about custom pieces, as i didn't check.

Erstaz MKII action figure Angel Body
Mr_props @cesarframesps. I never tried, but on this model, i guess it is possible. Don't use the polished material though, it would be useless i think. i'll try next month if i can order one of these. Paint should be ok, except if you'd like to have a very shiny result, as there would be a lot of sanding to do, and putty would be more than an option.

Ersatz MkII action figure Male Body
Mr_props @ebongear. Hi! I'm afraid the size you are talking about would be extremely expensive. I used to sell a 1/6 scale bjd before, and the price increases drasticaly with the volume since it is an exponent of 3 that we are talking about. As a result the price would pop up to about 250$ for a mesh without optimisation. Maybe 150$ after optimization. I'm not sure anyone would be interested for such a price...

Mr_props @Mdphotos. Hi! The angel is the same model as the female model minus the breasts, while the male version has a wider torso. The difference is subtle...

Mr_props @kingjulio. Hi! This one is quite small: 74mm tall, although each print might be slightly different (expect -/+ 1mm). I suggest you try the link in the product's description so you get a better idea of what this is. Have a nice day!
1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD kit, Female V02
Mr_props @echoplexic. I'm afraid most of us are as small child when it comes to thios material. It is tedious to master the post processing part, and althought there were many discussions in the forum about painting it, there's no perfect solution yet, axcept some fairly tedious ones. The best advice i can give is to really leave it for long inside the white spirit, like 24 hours, simply yo make sure there's no wax left on the parts. Now if i really wanted to paint it, i would mix pigments with epoxy glue that can cure very slowly (and would work in a cold environement to make sure it cures more slowly. That's the tedious solituion, as epoxy is toxic, but way more efficient i guess than oil painting. Maybe using epoxy glue as a varnish would work aswell on oil/enamel/acrylic paint, but you'd have to be carefull not to pour some into the joints. I'm sorry i don't have any solution i like yet, and these are not my favorite since they require products that are potentialy dangerous for health.

1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD kit, Female V03
Mr_props @echoplexic. I understand. I fact when i made this, the only thing i had in mind was to make it as poseable as possible. I couldn't figure out a way to articulate 3d printed hair, nor how to rig such smallish parts, so ididn't even think seriously about it thinking that some kind od wig would give an interesting look to the puppet. I don't when i can try to create "hard" hair models but i'll think about it, thank you for the advice!
1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD kit, Female V02
Mr_props @echoplexic. I'm not sure she painted it at all. If left more than 24 hours inside white spirit, the material becomes plain white. Maybe you could try humbrol (enamel) colours, i think they should be reliable for such a work. Otherwise, Mr Hobby (acrylics) has a very nice line of products.
1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD kit, Female V03
Mr_props @echoplexic. Hi! Unfortunately not. My goal was to get something 1/24th scale as there's a lot of products fitting this one. Unluckily, i can't scale it down any further due to the printing process. The only way to achieve that would be to reduce the limbs length, and it would result in a bulkier looking puppet. I tried googling 1/20th scale and didn't find much except scifi looking stuff and a few baroque pieces of furnitures available on Aliexpress...

Mr_props @trinlay. That's a cool picture. In fact i had started working on a pterodactyl a while back, but the size made it so expensive that i gave up. Great work anyway!
1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD kit, Female V03
Mr_props @echoplexic. Hi! Well i completely understand your question since i had trouble myself with finding the right paint. Shapeways recommend to use acrylic based paints but i prefer oil based paint or enamels. The paint itself will probably wear around the articulations due to friction. That's why i'm simply whitening the material using white spirit. If the coat is thick enough and the paint strong enough it shouldn't be a big problem, but then it means you have to be carefull not to apply to thick a layer on the shoulder joints as they won't move as easily after.

Mr_props @angermuffin. Thank you for your comment. You are probably right about the knees, it is hard to make them both functional and looking good... Maybe i'll iterate something someday... I'd love to see what you did with those!

1/20 scale ALPHA EGO BJD, Male extra heads
Mr_props @thecuteness5. Hi! In fact they won't. This is due to the fact that the alpha model line is supposed to be assembled by snaping the parts together. Resin is not resilient enough and would break. These heads are for the stringed type line of dolls. Thank you for your interest. best,

Erstaz MKII action figure Angel Body
Mr_props @CletusKasadyIII. Me too ! Unfortunately, the price will be so high i can't even pay for a single prototype... Each part has to be cast one by one, which raises the cost horribly. Sprues are not possible due to there sizes and wire printing limitations... I hope one day there will be a solution, because 300$ for this eems a little high... The other aspect is that if made with metal, the design needs a drastic change since the parts would not snap. It means screws are required, and joints adjustments aswell.

Mr_props @fbed9dd. Hi! Well, i'm sorry to say that for someone with no skill at all it could become quite a painfull or desapointing experience, and i don't hink i can honestly recommend this to anyone who does not have at least basic manual skills. In my opinion it is not more complicated thancutting pieces from a sprue and stringing them like necklace's beads, but that's the amount of parts and the order in which you have to place them that could be tedious. Although it is not as sophisticated as the model shown in these instructions, you should have a look at this so you can figure out if you can do this by yourself or not: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=84687#msg_84687 Thank you for your interest, have a nice day!
