Imagine 3d Miniatures Terms and Conditions
The 3d Miniatures Shop is an online Miniature Market developed by Imagine 3D Miniatures, that provides the user with a system for viewing , creating and customizing 3D printed miniatures. In this market you can find different miniatures shops, each of them offers different kind of miniatures , all of them ideal for board games, RPGs and wargames. Customization options vary in each shop and goes from not having any customization to the selection of the race, the position of the figure, the equipment , the mount, the scale and 3d print material.
All previous customization options converge in the Miniatures creator, a system for creating miniatures developed and implemented on the web by the team at Imagine 3D Miniatures. This creator works as an online viewer in real time with which the user may select different items and see the changes as the miniature is completed. Once the user has created and customized the model according to his likes, he can select the scale and the 3d printing material in which he wants to receive his creation.
There are five print materials available for The 3D Miniatures Shop. divided into three groups, High Definition Acrylate ,Strong & Flexible and Frosted Detail.
Black High Definition Acrylate Resin Material
This new material, is made of a photo-reactive resin. It is printed using Direct Light Projection (DLP) technology which provides excellent resolution and accuracy. It is capable of fine details and is therefore ideal for miniatures. Additionally, the DLP process produces a smooth surface, making it well suited for painting.
It has three important advantages against Frosted Detail Material, it has black color witch makes details more visible, it is more strong and cheaper. We recommend this material for 3d printing your miniatures, in case they are not too big.
Strong & Flexible Plastic
Among the different plastics available for 3D printing, this material is the most resistant. Its roughness produces some loss of quality in the tiniest details, yet is more affordable than other available materials. We recommend using Strong & Flexible Plastic especially for printing big miniatures like mounts or bigger scales . You can print in two colors, white and Black.
Printing is done starting from dust of this material, which hardens layer by layer to complete the figure. Some rest of this dust may be on the miniature once finished, so please wash it before proceeding to painting. The Strong & Flexible Plastic is a porous material, so we recommend using a primer in the figure for better gripping of the paint.
There are two types of materials called frosted characterized by a semi transparent surface. The one called Frosted Ultra Detail is finished with high definition and a high level of detail, although it is slightly more fragile than the Strong & Flexible Plastic.
The second material frosted type we offer is called Frosted Extreme Detail, which, as its name suggests, has an even higher quality than the previous materials. This is the highest quality materials available, which is in direct proportion to its price. Due to its characteristics, this material is only available for miniatures of smaller scales - 28 and 35 mm.
Due to its greater fragility materials we recommend to use miniatures made with Frosted Detail materials carefully. Sometimes remain rest of oil on the miniature, originated in the printing process, that may yellow the figure with time, it is advisable to wash the figure to remove these residues and facilitate the painting of the miniature.
Another customization options that offer some of the shops is the selection of the scale in which the user wants to print the miniature. The scales that are available are : 28 mm, 35 mm, 54 mm, 75 mm and 90 mm. For big miniatures like mounts we only have the scales 28 mm, 35 mm and 54 mm because the big volume and size they would have in larger scales would make 3D printing impossible.
We recommend using 35mm scale for wargames that use use 28mm scale.
