Dalek (Complete) by guydebored Jan 27, 2013


This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/gCuOuKuuUPJ

I've noticed requests on a few Dalek 'things' for the stalk, plunger and cannon. InnovationByLayer's original was one of my favorite prints too, so I figured it deserved the important final details. I've split the model into 2 files so that you can print the body without support and the extras with the necessary support. Different colour filament combinations too.

This was derived from InnovationByLayer's brilliant Dalek model: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1600

Connectors and holes were derived from tbusers' very clever model: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10541

Enjoy :)

Yeah, they're pretty fiddly. Maybe scale everything up so that shape and strength isn't as compromised.

Print the plunger/cannon/eye stalk file with raft and support. 10% infill is fine.

The Dalek file prints beautifully without raft or support. 10% Infill.

My Dalek prints amazing..but I CANNOT get those dang weapons to print well..even with my settings on printing super slow..=(

I'm bummed out, slic3r said it fixed a bunch of errors but the model printed out without a head! I tried printing it twice. Just fixed via netfabb and going to try again.

printing dalek without support generated a little spaghetti, but nothing that a little x-acto can't handle

could you perhaps post the weapons as separate files? I snapped one while removing support from it. super cool design - the rest worked really well. thanks

I've printed two of these on our Makerbot Replicator 2, and they both came out amazing!

The only complication was the accessories (plunger+cannon+eye-stalk) - I printed them with raft+support (as suggested), and I had a bit of trouble removing the supports from the actual parts without breaking the parts. No biggie though - I broke one eye-stalk, and printed a new one in ~20 minutes.

Thanks for the great models!

glad to hear - thanks! I get those occasional breakages too. I'll see if I can adjust the dimensions of the extras so their a bit sturdier. Meanwhile perhaps try printing them with a higher infill or scale both parts up for a bigger model. That might help. Cheers :)

I may have to update my profile picture!

Hey thanks! The extras need a little cleaning because of the support, but that's it.

Very Nice! The print looks really clean!
