Summary

Loading Screen Models Series. tested some but not all of them, at around 1-2 inch figurine size. any bigger should work fine. the hex bases should be easily removable in any 3d software, but they help support the models and normalize the scaling. the spriggan is a bit tricky because of all the small branches. may work on more or other skyrim related parts. leave suggestions if you have any and enjoy some skyrim figurines.

these are not all custom models. bethesda did all the work i just modified them to be printer friendly. i'm not looking to make money off this. please don't sue me, bethesda. write me a nice email first to give me a warning and i'll happily cower away and take the models down if you have a problem with this.

I'm having some troubles printing things with hanging parts (most of them). if I add supports it gets almost incredibly hard to give a good finish to the figure, if I don't, well, the hanging parts will fall.
Any of you have some advices to help me.
was using Cura and Slic3r to do the slice.

Thanks in advance

hi. if its a particular piece, you can import the model into a program like 3ds max, then export just the hanging piece, print out both, then use a soldering/hot glue gun without glue to melt the pieces together (be careful and make sure to clean the tool off after it cools a bit). if the piece is really small (like the draugr arrows) then you may have to scale it up or find a higher res printer to use. you could also try modifying the model in a program like 3ds max to beef up the particular piece (like making really thick arrows) and re exporting as stl. i did try that already but i still wanted to balance the beefing up with the original look so it could be thickened more if necessary

I am having issues printing a few of these. the spriggan and the dragonpriest mostly. the giant, werewolf, troll, and armor came out beautifully tho

depending on the scale, some parts may be too thin for your printer's resolution. if you dont want to print at a higher scale, you can open these in a 3d modeling program, add some thickness or a small block around the trouble area to remedy that, re-export as obj or stl, and reprint with the thickened part, then try sanding it to blend with the rest. although they would still be extremely fragile. ive had issues printing the arrows on the draugr but at a certain point, they stop being arrows and are just rods in his back so its a tradeoff of detail to strength and printability. desktop printing tech just isnt there yet. sorry.

These are really impressive. Well done! Like the hexagonal base.

Ya know. This past weekend I decided to dust Skyrim off and play it a little. During loading I thought to myself "I wonder if anyone has put 3d-printable loading screen models online?"

So today I type "Skyrim" in thingiverse. I was not disappointed. Awesome

Thanks! If I ever get my desktop computer working again, then I'll be doing the same thing for the fallout 4 models. Seems like some people were interested in that and the same process should work.

I am absolutely interested in this. Bless you for doing this, haha

video card on my computer is shot. getting a new one in a couple weeks. any requests, make them now. i'm going to try to bust out a bunch of new stuff in january

howdy -- thanks for all your work. If you are taking requests, how about the male High Elf (has a sword in right hand), the female Wood Elf archer and the female Imperial in armor. I am also interested in understanding the process in which you take these images and "fix" them for printing. I understand that its a fairly involved process to make the meshes "solid". May I ask what software you use?

i'll give those a try when i get my computer working, as well as the rest of the loading screen models, since i also had a request for the shrines. basically the process involves grabbing models from the game or finding them online, bringing them into 3ds max, possibly separating the models into individual pieces for better control, using a shell modifier on the pieces to add thickness, exporting the whole thing as a single stl, then sending it to a free microsoft service that checks for holes in the new models and caps them if necessary. i download the "fixed" models and then upload them here.

I love these models, do you think in the future you could do the same with fallout 4 loading screen models? I dont really know much about how this was done, i assume you took them from the game files?

i can give it a shot soon. i've been super busy in the last months which is why i stopped my other projects like the full printable master chief armor. its all similar process of ripping game models, fixing holes, adding inner structures for support and thickness so it should be fine to do the same with fallout 4. it may take me until mid december to get a chance to begin working on it since im still really busy.

This is incredibly awesome. If I had a 3D printer, I'd totally make them.

I'm looking for someone that can convert 2d artwork into 3d figurines.
Was wondering if you do commission work?

thanks,
Michael

that's not exactly what I do, but I can give it a try and you can evaluate a small sample if you have one in mind. send me a message with details/reference images for a sample if you want to try that

We are looking to have tap handles created in the images we've already had an artist do for our brewery.
