Introduction:

All in Resine produces 3D printed accessories for dioramas in different scales. After covering several 1/35 scale sets from the company catalogue, the following review deals with one of the 1/48 scale items released under All in Resine label: Coffee Table (AC8003).

Review:

The set is packed in a zip-lock bag. The box art shows CAD image of the coffee table, listing the scale and the designation of the set.

Opening the bag reveals two 3D printed pieces, a round table top and turned column with tripod. 3D printing works by building the object one layer at a time, with each layer printed on top of the previous. The process results in small printing imperfections known as printing lines which need to be carefully sanded. The pieces in this set are printed well with only miniscule printing lines to attend to. I would suggest using fiberglass pen and isopropyl alcohol to obtain a perfect surface.

The set depicts an antique wooden round table (is it Victorian style?) which could be a nice addition to many dioramas. Remember, although this review deals with the 1/48 scale version, All in Resine also offers a 1/35 scale coffee table for those who prefer modeling the larger scale.

Conclusion:

Coffee Table (AC8003) from All in Resine delivers a quarter scale antique wooden round table as two 3D printed pieces. Printout is really good but I feel the surface should be additionally cleaned prior to painting.

Altogether, this is another very useful diorama accessory from the company.
SUMMARY
Highs: A very interesting subject which should find it's way to 1/48 scale dioramas.
Lows: Thin printing lines which need to be cleaned.
Verdict: Highly recommended.

About Mario Matijasic (Maki)
FROM: CROATIA HRVATSKA

You wonder how did this addiction start? I was a kid when my dad broght home a 1/72 Concord airplane; we built it together as well as couple of other airplanes after that. This phase was just pure fun: glue, paint, decals in no particular order... everything was finished in a day or two. Then I disc...

Thanks for the review Mario. How works the isopropyl alcohol over the printed parts? Have never heard of it and sounds interesting, given the increasing products available with this technology.

Buenas Carlos, te contesto en español, que para mi es mas fácil. Luego haré un resumen en ingles. Las piezas se imprimen con un soporte de cera. Después de la impresión y antes de recibirlas yo, el técnico de impresión las lava con ultrasonidos en una solución de agua y alcohol isopropilico (desconozco la mezcla). Quedan muy limpias, pero siempre hay que repasarlas un poco. Esta limpieza, no elimina lineas de impresión. Una vez recibidas las piezas, yo recomiendo limpiarlas de nuevo con alcohol isopropilico rebajado con agua en una proporción 3:10 y darlo con un cepillo de cerdas de fibra de vidrio (CUIDADO CON LOS OJOS, QUE SALTAN FRAGMENTOS Y ES MUY DOLOROSO. SIEMPRE GAFAS PROTECTORAS). El alcohol a parte de retirar la cera, ataca un pelin a la resina y con el pincel, sirve para eliminar parte de las lineas de impresión. Si lo único que quieres es quitar la cera, yo utilizo el Tamiya Lacquer Thinner. Es maravilloso The pieces are printed with a wax holder. After printing, the parts are ultrasonic cleaned in a solution of water and isopropyl alcohol (I do not know the mixture). They are very clean, but you always have to go over them a little. This cleaning does not eliminate print lines. Once the pieces have been received, I recommend cleaning them again with isopropyl alcohol reduced with water in a ratio of 3:10 and give it with a fiberglass brush (EYE CARE, WHICH SPLITS FRAGMENTS AND IS VERY PAINFUL, ALWAYS PROTECTIVE GLASSES) . The alcohol removes the wax and attacks the resin a little and with the brush you can eliminate part of the printing lines. If all you want is to remove the wax, I use the Tamiya Lacquer Thinner. It is wonderful
