This is a model of the Goddess Chest from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I designed this to house a sound module that you typically find in a gift card. The switching mechanism has been replaced with a reed switch.


Just a note: i have two chest legs denoted by "fl" and "fr" (front left and right), but it's rotationally symmetric, so front left is also back right. So just print a total of 2 pieces each.

How did you get the surfaces so smooth? I can never manage to get mine like that

I noticed that the model for the top has a small area on the front right side (when looking at the crest) that's incomplete. Its a small hole in the left "swirl". Is there a version that is fixed?

Forgive my directness. I'm excited. I found out there's a 3D printer I can use within biking distance, and since I've had my eye on this creation of yours for quite a while, I have a few questions:

  1. Where is the Instructables link other commenters have mentioned?
  2. What material did you use? ABC, polycarbonate, etc.
  3. What size is the one you made? I know these things can be scaled up and down, but I'd like to use yours as a starting point.

The instructables link is no more?

instructables link is broken?

fixed the link. Thanks for letting me know.

Also, which soundboard did you get? It should be programmable via USB. The website I've listed provides you software to upload a WAV file.

blargh. i hate the new instructables. I didnt even see the rest of the steps. I havent gotten a soundboard for this project yet. I have had lots of trouble in the past getting a setup working.

That is a nice print, Did you do any smoothing or is it just paint? Or do you have a great printer? :-)

I wish I have a great printer. My instructables has in depth details about the paints I tried. But this version of the chest shown required some sanding, some base paint to smooth things over, and then more paint for the color.

Oh and the link to instructables has Thingiverse embedded in it.
