It looks really nice, is it paper or a kind of card?

How do you set up to make it, do you input something for it to work from, can't wait to see what she makes next, really well done.

It's hundreds of layers of plastic, melted onto each previous layer to make an object.

3D software eg. https://www.tinkercad.com. It's online and free to use.

That's amazing, never thought it would be plastic, thank you for the info, there must be many things you can make, I really don't have much idea of how it works so have to ask.

I do know that Timbo makes PCB's and prints the circ: to film, then a uv light box, and some fluid of some kind that will work away the copper to make the PCB, seeing that work was amazing too

The second and final Chinese Night Light completed last night and Allie is just doing the final touches.

For today, we have the item below and this is currently printing LIVE right now.

Estimated completion time 09-01-2019 ~ 21:10 UTC.




Top right, guide for the filament - so I can place the reel elsewhere.

The wheels are experimental 'addons' to allow us to level the print bed a little easier on its wingnuts.

The bone like structures - 6x is supposed to be a bracelet, but i'd be surprised if the ball and socket joints work right after printing!

The other bone items are an experiment in size and quaLity with a view to them maybe being used for finger joints.

Early days and still experimenting...

It looks very exciting and amazing what you can do, think Bob had his eyes on your Lady dancing in the background and not on the printer

Hehe - he's not the only one!

She's there for a reason, other than eye candy... It's to make sure I can tell whether the stream is still alive!

OK, so I've been experimenting...

Sarah-Lou volunteered to be the guinea pig. An eyelash was dropping off anyways...

The 'skin tone' filament is exactly the same colour as a TPE insert. However, my ladies are all WM tans so I had to colour up the print with makeup. It's close, but not quite perfect.



Both upper eyelashes removed and an initial fitting of eyelid to her right eye.


Looking so-so...


Not quite the right colour.


Better from a distance...


Both eyelids darkened and second eyelid added. It's getting there...


Existing 'stock' makeup kinda spoiling it.


Makeup removed from upper eye.


Now this is getting good!


Same as last photo with a bit of image post processing.


Also with a bit of image post processing.


NO post processing - straight out of the camera.

Shout if anyone is interested in having some of these lidz...

Probably 5 ~ 10 a pair, including the postage, nothing set in stone, with or without lashes etc. Just putting out the feelers...

Given the success I experienced with Sarah-Lou, Allie has now received eye surgery.



Makeup removal using mineral oil.
Both upper eyelashes removed. Acetone needed to dissolve the superglue and remove the remains of the old eyelashes. I stuck the old ones on VERY well!
WARNING: Acetone WILL damage the plastic eyes. Remove them first!


Preparation complete and ready for her new eyelids.


These lids were printed in 'wood' PLA and further makeup added to match WM Tan.


As above with a bit of post processing.


Taken straight from the camera.

Shout, PM, telepathy etc. if anyone is interested in having some of these lids...

5 a pair, including the postage. UK only. Bulk discount by arrangement.

No lashes supplied as there are so many variations. Pick and choose your own (lots on eBay) and glue them on with superglue.

Will be supplied in the default colour which matches the standard WM removable insert colour. The lids take makeup quite well as shown above which now match WM Tan.

DISCLAIMER: Applying these to your lady and sleeping with her will probably cause a reluctance to extricate yourself from your bed covers more than usual.

The work you have done there is amazing, it looks so good, I have to tell Bob and Timbo to have a look

I'm a bit lost for words, but well done

Bob and Timbo said to say great job, and look part of the doll, it hard to tell they are home made.
