20240414 3D Stackable Building Ready to Role

3D Stackable Building Ready to Role

We are getting close to video production time. We have been 3D printing all the pieces to make Stackable and Expandable Buildings. We shall be using these to create a warehouse district while making a Candela Obscura video. Challenges: it is taking a good amount of resin to print everything. Also, each print takes a good amount of time to print. We were hoping to have 20-30 building to create the miniature warehouse movie set; but, we have now decided to do “Movie Magic” in order to start filming. We shall making a video about making the video! And, we will keep printing in the mean time. 🙂

As an additional secret, Explorers Emporium will be making silicon molds of its Sidewalk 3D prints, as well as, some of the Flooring pieces. 3D Print time is pretty long on these. Plus, the Sidewalk 3D prints are thicker. Thus, they are heavy on resin use. So, product expenses will go down by casting, too. Plus, Plus, by doing a casting methods on these pieces, we will be able to make several in an hour or even in a minute. This will free up time to use the 3D printers for the other pieces. This is FUN!

The Shopkeeper Does a Magic Card Trick

Shopkeeper Does a Magic Card Trick

ADVENTURERS!!! Explorers Emporium is having some FUN. We had several comments about a scene in our Candela Obscura Choosing Character Roles video. We were showing off the different roles you can play in Darrington Press’s Candela Obscura. One of the character role’s “Specialties” found under “FACE” is “MAGICIAN”. The scene has The Shopkeeper doing a disappearing leg trick… Yah, I said that. (Video link is below). So, in response to that, The Shopkeeper does a magic card trick he learned about 50+ years ago. It is pretty awesome. We hope you enjoy it. The Shopkeeper Does a Magic Card Trick is available on Patreon and YouTube.
