Han Solo in Carbonite by gianteye Nov 12, 2009

Description

Nope, not Dash Rendar, Ponda Baba, or even the young Lando Calrissian. It's your favorite smuggler Han Solo lovingly packed in carbonite for convenient shipping and storage. Enjoy Han Solo by yourself or with friends. Han makes a lovely conversation piece and will be certain to make you the center of every party.

I owe a special thank you to Sci-Fi 3d { scifi3d.com } and the awesome free STL editing package Netfabb { netfabb.com }

I was hoping to remix this into a Popsicle mold, but am having trouble making a inverse of the stl. Could you please provide it in another format? Thanks

I had a hard time printing this with my Rep2. In the orignal STL there is a hollow that is difficult to span.
So my work around is - print the outer box (gray in the photo) then in tinkercad i cut away the gray box and left just Han Solo then pronted that (black in the photo) by dumb luck the black piece snaps directly into the outer box with a perfect it. No glue needed.

I have been having trouble printing this on the RapMan, it will print it fine up until it builds the sides up more, it leaves that area hollow, then tries to print the top part in the open air there. I have been trying to edit a sketchup file of this but it wont seem to transfer at all to either program whichever i do first...skeinforge sees this as having a box within a box, so if anybody could fix that problem i would love to try printing it again.

Print. Enjoy. Han with care.

I haven't had a chance to print one yet, tell me if the overhang on the hands is a bit too steep.

I printed this on the up! printer, but it came out very poor quality, a bunch of surfaces seem to get dropped. I'm not sure why, I can't open the STL in any of my tools.

Great file! Added some colors and printed it on our Z450. It's now my profile pic.

Giant Eye, Thanks for sharing this file. We had a great time printing this. We used our Connex500 machine with dual material capabilities. We sliced the body so we could build it with a different material. We used VeroGray and VeroWhite with a gloss finish. There will be a posting with the video at our twitter acct. @VistaTekUSA. Or you can go directly to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Great model! Those fingers were _really_ fragile. My first two prints I managed to snap them off, once with just air pressure trying to depowder it!

Ima make one and cast it in silicone, then pour chocolate in it.

Can't get CADspan working on Sketchup under linux, they've encrypted it I think. So I've asked Makerbot group if someone can help shrinkwrap the mesh to make it solid.

Anonymous on Nov 23, 2009 said:

CADspan do a plugin for Sketchup that allows you to send a file to them for "Wrapping".. basically they compute what the surface of the design is and form a single solid mesh. It ignores anything beneath the surface, but for this model it's irrelevant. In fact, considering the odd printing within the model, I'd say it'd be a vast improvement.

Unfortunately that's sketchup. However, I might try to hack this into sketchup by reverse-engineering a sketchup file! Sketchup files are glorified .zips containing a few directories and a collada file. If I export from blender as a collada file, import into sketchup, and run CADspan, we might get a "wrapped" mesh!

More on this soon! ;)

I'm still figuring out the process of joining thing made in separate parts into one mesh and converting it for gcode. I'm glad you made one. I'll see about modifying the geometry when I've got some time.

Also, some feedback;
Awesome mesh, but it's in separate pieces and I think Skeinforge thought oddly of this. As before, I'd recommend making it hollow, too.
Also, I scaled it to 6.4cm, and it's recognisable but the detail is poor. Also, there was some warping but thankfully it didn't kill the build.

Here's a picture:

Hello,

I would like to print it at Shapeways- they return an error though (manifold error).

As I own a slow computer and I am only familiar with Sketchup, I was unable to fix it. Could anybody provide me with a manifold version, prefferably hollow? :-) Alumide is available untill the 14th, so I hope I can print it untill then... My girlfriend is a big starwars fan (and me too).

Thanks a lot!

Erm.. It printed, but I don't see an "I made one!" option

Maybe it's because it's "All Rights Reserved", I've had this problem on another "All Rights Reserved" item!

I think that option assumes someone is sharing it just to show off, because technically nobody's allowed to copy an All-Rights-Reserved item, so there's logically no need to share the picture!

Perhaps a friendly Creative Commons license? ;)

In fact it'd be prudent if someone could make a mostly-hollow version of this?

Printing one now!
Will upload pic as soon as it's done. It's large though, I have fears about it warping... :-/

I actually don't know what this would look like printed. Extra love to anyone who prints one and sends me a photo.

I'm glad y'all like. I might just make a version with a stand in the near future.

Would look awesome in black ABS.

Printed a scaled down version of this today. It would be really great if the bottom was flattened so Han can be printed standing up.

You beat me to the punch. I do not have a 3d printer yet. This was going to be one of my first projects. In fact I was wondering how it never was designed yet :)

Anyhow good work!

Pure awesome! I want one in a nook on my wall!

I might even print one, put on strip magnets on the underside, and have it levitating in a display box! :D
