    This is why 3D printing needs to be taken very seriously. What has always separated the hobbyist and professional is not fitting puzzle pieces – that is tedious work that adds no value to the client.

    The professional modeler needs to adopt 3D ASAP so they are not blowing their expenses on making puzzle pieces fit but rather on the finishing that gives a sense of realistic scale and appearance.

    Once clients get over price… then they have to get over time to delivery. Traditional Burn-Down-The-Mold traps the professional hobbyist.

    I think in SNG’s case this is true – I’ve come to believe watching the videos that the need for revenue and the time to turn things over is getting to be a challenge.

    HighDef media has risen the expectation bar.

    IMHO. 🙂

      Though that leads to the next question: how many supplemental parts can a professional modeler build into a retail kit… and of those parts how many should be 1:1 replacements, or maybe a “shim” attachment that evens out an existing major tree part.
