Why Use Resin for Miniatures?

When it comes to creating these miniature models and gaming accessories, one printing method stands out as the clear winner: resin printing.

Resin printing is a 3D printing technology that uses a liquid plastic material that hardens when exposed to ultraviolet light. This process allows for smoother, higher-quality results than filament printing, making it the preferred method for creating small, intricate details for miniatures. Filament printing, which involves layering thin strands of plastic on top of one another to build up the shape of the model, can result in a slightly textured finish. Filament can still print miniatures with very little detail, but you have more visible layer lines compared to using resin.

The level of detail that can be achieved with resin printing is simply astounding. Every crease, curve, and contour of a miniature model is captured with precision, making it possible to create highly-detailed figures that look like they’ve been plucked straight from the game’s lore.

This level of detail is especially important for games like Warhammer and BattleTech, where the appearance of individual units can make or break a game. With resin printing, you can rest assured that your miniatures will look stunning on the battlefield, giving you a stylistic edge over your opponents.

Another benefit of resin printing is that it allows for greater flexibility in the design process. With resin printing, you can create more intricate designs that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing methods. This makes it possible to create custom miniatures and accessories that perfectly fit your unique vision, adding a personal touch to your gaming experience.
