Ethical Printing

In my book, "See Mark Paint," I devote most of a page to "Ethical printing" because I think it is very important. Basically, put yourself in the position of the file creator, how you would feel if someone took your CCA (Creative Commons) non-commerical licensed file and started printing and selling it. It's bad juju, Karmic debt, whatever you want to call it.

This is why I stress ethical printing. If you don't, lawyers get involved and they are expensive.

See Mark Paint 4th Edition

Okay Mechwarriors, See Mark Paint 4th edition is officially here!

I have added my experiences with my Anycubic Photon, and also added a chapter on safety, because safety protocols are essential when running a resin 3D printer.I added a couple more DIY projects and re-edited the entire book. I also default to 18 point font in my word processor because of my eyesight. With See Mark Paint now at over 200 pages, I decided to also release a copy with regular 12 point font size, saving 50 pages. A MOBI or real ebook format is also in the works, so this can be used in ebook readers. I just have to work on the formatting so it looks proper.

I also made these Hex Wafers to help organize Battlefoam hex trays. You can print a set in 7 minutes, then label them so you know who goes where and when they're not there so you don't leave a Mech all alone on the table after a fight.

Fixes and Updates

First of all, I'm busier than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest. I'm doing the best I can.

Second, I FINALLY figured out why the links aren't working in See Mark Paint. They are fixed and uploaded.

Third, I am deep into a total rewrite of See Mark Paint. I am adding an entire chapter on PPE and safety because I'm learning about my 3D printer and there are bad consequences if you don't do things right. I am also adding a chapter (obviously) on 3D printing. I am almost finished with my 4th rewrite. The formatting and editing will soon follow.

Fourth, I have Roster Builder 3.0 for Windows 99% ready. This is also a total rewrite so I can just transfer the code to my Mac and Unix environments and compile them there. The Win version will be out soon, I have to get cracking on installing the interpeter and compiler in the other environments and getting them to work there. Another stumbling block is the help files and I'm taking another shot at a video walkthru.

Fifth, I know the sections just below the main banner are not working properly. I'm on this as well, but's low on the list.

Fruit from the E-book

I shamelessly plug, push and pull people for praise on See Mark Paint. I really want feedback, positive and especially negative. If I did something wrong or bad, I want to know so I can fix it and not disillusion or even hurt a new gamer. The praise helps inspire other visitors here to grab and read it. I also get inspired that others like my work as well.

That being said, I don't get to see a lot of the "fruit" from my ebook. Mr. Spenser Sparks not only did a very glowing review, he sent me some pictures on his latest miniature after he put to use what's in my book. Click on each image for full size in a new tab.

"I've watched dozens if not hundreds of video tutorials how-to guides on basing, glazing, blending, you name it.

Your E-book is the most comphrehensive and well-explained guide to miniature craft and painting I have ever seen! You really should be proud of this and are a legend for this kind of contribution to the painting and wargaming community!

Just in reading the first introduction section I learned six different very useful tips. Using a sponge to form a point and Legos while gluing, these are just amazing tips for someone like me to name a few!

I can't tell you enough how much I personally appreciate your work in this E-book and the dedication you took to make it!" -- Spencer Sparks
