I also have no special 3D-equipment - only usual PC and DAZ3D program ( I'm making 3d-models and sending it by e-mail to guy who has an own 3D-printer. He is printing my models, I pay money to him. One 50-mm figure cost me about 6-8$ (smaller figures are cheaper - proportionally to square of floor). But printed figures has a small horisontal stripes - it's a common disadvantage of midle-class 3D-printers. These three test figures were printed in 36-mm size. May be later I'll convert it to 1:72...

I am very interested both in your reduction method and your small injection machine
On regards of your "magic": Could you please give more details?

And regarding your injection process: Could you please give more information about this small injection machine?
What material do you employ to make the moulds?

Thanks in advance,
