Claim your rightful place on the iron throne as the lord of the Seven Kingdoms and protector of the Realm!
This is a House Baratheon inspired crown from game of thrones. It can complete your perfect Game of thrones cosplay, or, you could use it as a standard crown in any other royalty costume.
In my opinion This was one of the best looking crowns from GoT which is why I modeled it. Maybe later I will try to do some of the other ones. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work.
Those of you with keen eyes will have noticed there are two STL files.
When I modeled this I accidentally made a mistake and made it with only 3 sets of horns. That is the version that you see printed in the pictures. I have gone back and added a version with 4 sets of horns that matches the reference picture better.
When downloading please be aware of this and download the one you prefer to print.
Full disclosure I was quite happy with the printed result of the 3 horn version.
If you have any issues, concerns or questions let me know.
Print Time Approximately 32 hours.
I was very happy with the results, this is a very solid print that should give you no issues if you're printer is properly configured and leveled.
The great thing about this print is that is only one piece. After printing it all you have to do once it is printed is remove the supports, clean it up and paint it. Acrylic water based paint is great on PLA prints
Get all your tools ready
I started with a black foundation
Then painted it bronze letting some black through to make it look worn out.
Finally just let it Dry
Winter is Coming!!
This design posed several interesting challenges to me.
The first one was the fact that I did not have a physical model to work from which meant I would have to make due with the reference Image.
The other one was that SolidWorks does not really lend itself to organic shapes such as the hones so I had to get creative to get them done.
Step 1: Getting the dimensions down! (Image A.)
I started by throwing the reference image into Photoshop, along with an image of a ruler.
I decided what the diameter of the actual physical crown should be, and scaled the ruler down to match. After that I had a "Virtual Ruler" with which I could take fairly accurate measurements relative to each other. I took grabbed some of the key dimensions. mostly heights and widths. Finally I threw the reference image into SolidWorks, and scaled it down to match the dimensions I took.
Step 2: Creating the Features
After I had all my references in place it was a pretty straight forward process.
I Started with a couple revolves following the contours of the crown.(Part 1 and 2)
Next I made a new sketch, traced over the horns in the reference picture and extruded it. (part 3)
Then I used the combine bodies features with the "common" operation, combining the revolve from part 2 and the extrude on part 3. Getting the result Part 4.
Part 5 was just a simple mirror.
Part 6 a circular pattern.
I repeated the same steps for the gem holders.
Final Step: Cleaning Up the model (Image C)
As mentioned before Solidworks does not handle organic shapes all that well.
So to finalize the model I decided to go into 3ds max.
I used the optimize modifier to simplify the model in order for the Turbo Smooth modifier to work properly.
You can see the results above although is not that clear the turbo smooth modifier gave it a very nice organic feel to it.
Thanks For Reading
Thank you for sticking around this long and taking the time to read my post.
This is my first time posting on thingiverse and I had a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy the model and can't wait to see some of your makes.
