Replikant Technologies offers their first 3D printed accessory sets in 1/35 scale: Plastic Chairs (#357001) and Plastic Crates (#357002). These sets are delivered using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology and feature extremely complex shapes with the level of detail impossible to produce in resin.

Thanks for the review! I ordered these myself and received them a few days ago - they really look beautiful, and are delicate but sturdy.

Great review Mario! I also just received my order of these sets and can confirm that they are amazing. Must be seen up close to believe. I can understand their suggestion to use a glass fiber pen as well for final clean up. So far I am building up my nerve to work on these crates and chairs as they seem very delicate. IMHO highly recommended

It was a pleasure writing about these... these were the first 3D pieces I had in my hands and I was very impressed.

Stuart, the pieces are much more sturdy than they appear, but be careful with chair rear legs.

LOL! so the 1/35 scale ones break their rear legs off just like the real 1 to 1 plastic chairs do?! Good warning Mario. Thank you

These are perfect for use outside an Iraqi cafe.

That is supposed to be the weakest point of the 3D chairs. Replikant did some additional postproduction magic on both the chairs and the crates, making them much tougher in their final iteration.

These chairs and crates are great.. and not only for cafe's.. a lot of small store owners around these parts put a couple of chairs outside their stores to sit on with friends who top by.. and the crates would look real nice next to MENG's soda bottle vending machines

Stuart.. what's a glass fiber pen?

Hisham,
I'm not Stuart, but I can answer that one.

It is literally a pen with a tip made of fiber glass bristles, like an automatic pencil. Useful for small area, fine sanding of cleaning. Useful for cleaning up soldering.

Thanks Mike! Yes. (I love this website! lol) First learned of fiber pens from Jerry Rutman's postings on Armorama. Note that most keep a small cup of water nearby to dip the fiber pen during use so that you are not breathing in glass fibers as they wear away. Use it wet. All the best
