In this video I go over my process of printing and painting a miniature for Dungeons and Dragons, alongside Mia, aka M3DM, who shows you how to make a 3D model from scratch!
I use an Elegoo Mars Resin 3D printer, and it is absolutely fantastic for this application. The detail that you get on the resin miniatures is so pristine it’s crazy. I cannot see the build lines in person at all, though I recognize that you can see them in this video. But hey, you have to give me some credit, 4k video shows all flaws!
Mia, also known as M3DM, was gracious enough to answer some questions about the 3D modeling process for the video, and hopefully give you all a better insight into the process than I could offer you. She put THIS model as well as all of her other models up on Thingiverse for FREE – that’s right, FREE – so that you can download and print them for yourself if you would like to.
Here is a link to M3DM’s Thingiverse Page:

And here is a link to her website:
She based the model off of a character design that I gave her for my Orc Monk named Grug Tug’O’lug. The images you see her using in the background of the modeling process are reference images and have no effect on the final product other than getting Orc proportions correct.
If you would like to print your own minis like this, consider getting an Elegoo Mars Resin 3D printer. They are pretty darn cheap as far as Resin Printers are concerned, and super simple to use. I highly endorse/recommend them.
