Durango Valley will be on display outside of the CPL in of the Criss Library, and we need patrons to help populate the field with new creations immediately. Send us your 3D model of a monstrous creature. Dig up that .stl of a monolithic sculpture. Get your humanoid warrior ready for the physical world! We’ll print them all at 25mm height and put them on display during the month of October.
Not a digital wizard yet? Create a 3D figure up to six inches tall from any material. We can 3D scan it into a digital file and print it in the CPL. If 2D is your style, send in black and white line art of a creation and we will cut it out on the laser, slap a base under it and put it to battle!
Want to showcase your painting skills? Models made in Heroforge, pulled from Thingiverse, or minis from suppliers like Games Workshop will be accepted SO LONG AS THEY ARE HAND PAINTED for display and voting in their own category.
For all models: Stop into the CPL and we can teach you to paint them prior to display.
Oct 22 - 30, 2019, come to the library and use our touchscreen to vote on your favorite competitors. All objects sent to us by Oct. 19 are eligible to be voted on by all library patrons. The winner will be announced on Halloween, and be given $10 credit for 3D printing, laser, or vinyl cutting services in the CPL.
After Halloween, you can pick up your printed objects and pay for them as usual or leave them in the collection of the CPL at no cost to you. You’re helping the CPL use up materials nearing the end of their natural life. That’s halfway on the road to necromancy. Our resin printer thanks you for this.
To enter, follow the procedures for submitting a 3D print on our website:
In the ‘Project Description’ box include “Battle for Durango Valley”, the name of the model/figure as you’d like it displayed, and your name as you would like it displayed if the piece is original.
If you want to try your hand at 3D scanning or laser cutting, email the CPL at email@example.com to to set up a time to use the laser, or drop off your creation for scanning or entry.
For further questions email the CPL Supervisor, Charles Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
