A 3D model of the 'Hand of the King' pin I made copying the design on the Game of Thrones TV show.
Polygonal modeling and sculpting done in Blender.

Wear with caution. The previous two Hands did not live long aftrer their appointment.

EDIT: The new file (HandOfTheKing3.stl) has two little improvements: 1) A slot in the back so can insert a pin and glue it in place, and 2) A little support that (hopefully) helps the bottom part to stick to the base.


This was made in Blender and the size and orientation of the pin probably won't match your sliicing software's. Rotate the pin so that it lays on its flat side, scale to an appropriate size (about 9 - 10 cm long) and print!

Unfortunately this model doesn't slice properly for me in Simplify3D. The area below the thumb is corrupted.

Yeah, that issue has been pointed out to me by several people. It's due to intrsecting meshes. I didn't bother merging all the meshes into one because I slice with either Cura or Craftware, both of which handle intersecting meshes perfectly. Simplify and Slic3r don't, and the error that you got appears. If you want to print this properly, you can either fix the mesh using netfabb or slice in Cura or Craftware.

This is a pretty awesome design. Only suggestion I have is about the slot on the back. Make it about twice as wide to fit bar shaped safety pins in there.

That is a very nice model. I never really got into Game of Thrones, but this is cool.

Do I need to print this with supports? For some reason in Cura it won't allow me to add support.

No, you don't need supports. You might need to rotate it in Cura so that the flat side is on the printbed, but once it's in that position there are no overhangs (except for the recess where you insert the pin, but that's not an issue).

how did you get stl file from blender?

File > Export > stl

That's really good! How did you get that finish?

From his Make:
Printed it 10cm long, layer height 0.08, cleaned imperfections with an X-acto blade, painted it gold, applied some black paint and wiped it off to darken crevices, glued a safety pin to the back, and voil
