RPG Miniature - Bird Creature by cyanobacterium Apr 14, 2013

Description

This is a miniature for use in table-top roleplaying games such as D&D. It depicts a bipedal bird-like creature. I use the video game Spore to create the initial 3D model which I then modified in Blender.

I think the reason there are so few Spore models is that getting them to STL format is an adventure. Here's how I do it: First, I use the colladaexport command to export the creature model. This model is not properly formatted, so the next step is to open the model in Google Sketch-Up and then save it again in the same collada format. This cleans up the file. After that, I import the re-saved file into Blender (you'll need to turn off transparency in blender for the textures to look correct). Finally, I select all of the objects in Blender and export as STL.

Nice work! This is the first Spore model I've seen on Thingiverse, which is just crazy to me.

Instructions

Print the version with support rods and then use a pair of wire cutters to snip them off (take extra care around the hands and feet of the mini). For best results, follow up by smoothing the surface with acetone vapor treatment.
