Hey guys.

I know it's been forever, but my life has sort of been flipped upside down and I needed time to sort things out.  After getting the chance to discuss the situation to a couple of you who I've talked with already, I think I finally know the best way to explain everything.

Basically, as a result of getting a new job, I had to relocate suddenly.  Five hours away from where I'd been living before.  And I no longer live with Rabid.  The past few weeks have been extremely chaotic as a result and I haven't had much time to work on the figures.  We have spent a lot of time devising a plan for how we're going to continue our work in the coming months.  Because it's going to be three months minimum before we're living together again, and we want to continue finishing commissions in that time.  Considering the fact that I'll be able to visit every other weekend, our plan was for me to upload print files to our Dropbox, and for Rabid to print/sand them during the week.  Then with airbrushing done on the weekend, I can take figures back with me to complete the details alone.

I tested this workflow last week with minor success.  I was able to complete Scratched Disk.  This week I'll be completing Evening Song and Keplily's Luna.  Both Octavias will be airbrushed this week as well.  And Nightmarity should be printed this week.  I can't say how well it'll work in the future, but we're determined to get them all done.

However, this means we absolutely cannot handle any new orders at this point.  Commissions are closed indefinitely.  When we find ourselves living together again, we might continue to take a very select amount of only the most special orders.  But other than that, the days of this being our living are over.

And I'm pretty okay with that.  This'll give us time to move on to other projects.  I think there's still a lot of 3D printing in our future, so in three months I think you can look forward to seeing a wider variety of stuff from us.

Thank you so much for everything.

Hey there!
You all can call me Nyasu!
My partner is RabidPeep and we print ponies.


What program do you use for your 3D modeling?

I use 3ds Max for everything. Most of my earlier models were intended for video game use, so Max was a natural choice. You can download it from the Autodesk website if you're a student.

Can I download your models for Gmod / Source Filmmaker / my own printing?

You cannot. These models are made for our personal 3D printing commissions. They put food on the table. :P

What kind of printer do you have? How much was it?

We use a Reprap Prusa Mendel. My partner Rabid bought it for around $800, assembled it from scratch, and does all the maintenance for it. Have any more questions about the process of running a printer or making models for printing? Feel free to throw one of us a message!

What made you guys decide to take up 3D printing?

Owning a 3D printer had been a long-held dream of Rabid's, and last summer it finally became possible. I heard about it and wanted in because it sounded cool as hell and was a good opportunity to build up my 3D modeling portfolio. Our skill sets and work styles are perfectly suited to collaborating on a project like this, as he has the technical expertise, I have the artistic expertise, and we're both decently knowledgeable in the other's field so it's easy to communicate. Neither of us could pull this off without the other.

Do you sell 3D prints of non-pony things?

We definitely intend to eventually. The problem is that they will take longer than ponies by virtue of not having a uniform body shape. Pokémon and anthros are top of the to-do list. Video game characters are an interesting case because there's a possibility that we could simply print the already-existing in-game model if it's available online. Feel free to ask.

Do you guys do trades?

Not at this time, sorry. But if you're a plushie maker we might be forced to reconsider.

Why hasn't my commission been printed yet?

Ask Rabid. @_@ He runs the printer and has control over everything on that end of the process so whenever anyone asks me this all I can do is stand there feeling kind of embarrassed.

How do I commission a running pony animation?

Sorry, but I don't do animated commissions anymore. Unless you're one of the handful of people still on the waitlist of old, but if you are, chances you wouldn't be asking this.

Are you ever going to finish that Locking up the Sun animation?

I'm amazed that people still want to see this completed. The answer is yes, and I'll probably work on it as soon as we get the commission list under control.

Oh WOW. I just have to say, I think these are the best 3D pony models I've seen. You've got a great sense of form and balance, they all look so lifelike! <3

Hi, I'd like to get into 3D printing. I've done a bit of research on the topic and know how it works in theory, but where can I find good advice on how to actually get a 3D printer to work? Any tips you have would be greatly appreciated.

*Sorry this isn't a PM. I don't see how to send those from the mobile app.
