Excuse me but I think we should put a single project in 3D printing?

I 3d printed a motorized AT-AT. It uses just one motor for all the legs and the rest is 3d printed.

There’s a lot of parts and it’s kind of complex to put together but feel free to give it a go!

Nice! I was just looking at this on Thingiverse, wondering if you were going to enter it into the contest. Looks like I was right! I was thinking of doing an AT-AT as well but I wanted to know if you’d be okay with that.

Ha, thanks! Yeah I saw the contest posted on Reddit. Also please post whatever you got! I really like seeing what other people make!

Is anyone able to make a figure of han solo and princess leia? I have been asked to print them for a wedding cake topper but don’t have the expertise to design that.

If it’s for a wedding cake I think the best think would be to dress the couple as Han and Leia and 3D scan them. You will get a precise 3D model and you will be able to 3D print them. Of course, this is the fancy option, but as a wedding only takes place once (or that’s the idea), I would do it that way.

I made Toppers for my whisky bottles (the black bottle has nickname Darth Vader, the green bottle has a nickname Master Yoda and the last one is from the Save Lars Homestead (its a trilogy of whisky)) The Lars Homestead is the first 3d model from this building made from original drawings, darthvader and masteryoda are made before and I made the right fit for these specific bottles.

Alright, my print finally finished so I can finally post it! A Death Star snack bowl since it’s easy to print and it seems like an item most people would use. Print for a small movie get together! At the printed size it holds about a 6 oz bag of candy, sits very sturdily with no supports used in Cura.

When the first trailer for The Force Awakens came out I was so excited I decided to make a fan version of the Millennium Falcon that would print without supports and in one piece. Seems like it would be good to give it a run in this race!

She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid.

It’s the less I can do for Edna, although there still are some crazy superheroes that believe capes are cool and safe!

Han Solo’s DL44 from Star Wars: A New Hope

Every smuggler’s trusty sidearm! I poured hundreds of hours researching screengrabs and Lucasfilm archive photos to capture the detail to the best of my ability. My favorite aspects are that the hammer can be rotated back and forth, magazine can be unloaded, a spring can be added to make a functional trigger, and the model is printed in parts to maximize detail and ease of paint. Tech-savvy makers can take advantage of the space in the handgrip, body, and barrel to fit in electronics for light and sound effects. The render shows an ideal paint job, but I only have a raw print at the moment. I hope you have as much fun as I do with this model! The 34 .stl files are available on YouMagine:
