Summary

super detailed mech with more firepower than a small army, based on the Thor character from Starcraft 2, many modifications and details were added to make this awesome printable mech.

Instructions

This was designed to be printed without any need for support.
Acceleration firmware was used to print this, but standard firmware should work fine just keep the speed low.

print two of the BFG build plates, use the pin to connect them.
print one of each (the body, the left and right shoulder, and the legs and guns built plate)
note that the guns on the top have offset slots

assemble all the parts and you will have your very own Thor.

잘쓸게요.. 감사합니다 ^^. thx sonic sounds great

This model is awesome! I printed it out and it looks amazing. However, how does the pin connect the hand-cannon to the elbow? I tried fitting it through the holes, but it was too big for it. Other than that, figure was magnificent and amazing!

Thanks! This model printed without a hitch on a DaVinci Junior 1.0 at the default settings. My three year-old grandson picked it out to make a couple days ago. He'll be thrilled to get it tomorrow. Keeping in mind his age I did white glue all of the moveable connections as, this way, it might last a month instead of a day. It came out so nicely though that I have started one of my own just to keep handy when people ask what the 3D printer can do! Mine will preserve the moveable limbs and I think I am going to do the body and limbs in clear blue, one of the BFGs in white and the other in red. I may splurge and print the head guns a couple times in red and white as well. I'll post a picture when done. Thanks again, one of the top best models I have personally done from this site!

Thank you for sharing a mech model that I can finally print and doesn't take me 3 months lol.

also this model scales great. i want to make an army of little mechs and even 60% it looks good. i might go smaller even to 40% (Cura).

Awesome model man. Looks killer.

Printed this with no support structure it is awesome. I used black abs the cheap micro center brand its only 15$ a kg and it works great.

What filament did you use in the images? Is that lime green abs?

This is awesome! But it would be nice if a plate with only back guns was available. I faild two times and it is such a vaste to print feets again. So no guns at back yet for me.

using slic3r you could just split the file into its separate parts.

Now we need a medivac!

Are you volunteering!? :P

How did you make the hinges that snap into each other? Like how did you know what dimensions to use for them to make sure they snap in smoothly without being too tight, but also without falling out?

it was mostly trial and error. print it, test the fit, measure adjust dimension and print again.

Great Model!

Printing This right now on a Makerbot Replicator 2 at 150% Size, mind putting up the lower body part as an STEP or STL, i cant open Solidworks file since im using PRO/E.

Great model!! Just a matter of time before I can have a real battle next to my Protoss Nexus with this thing :P Parts fit excellent too! I've been printing it with my UP! Mini. Question; in what program did you model this? Did you extract the SC2 model out of the game also? I usually do that to have a reference ;) Hope you will post more stuff!

the original models were extracted from SC2 and then I used solidworks to add details and cut it apart to make it printable

Any tips for printing the back cannons? Right at the end when it has to print the laser nozzles the supportless widening allows the plastic to warp a bit and eventually the head pulls it off the blue tape.

Hi ="thingiverse-98df4e0ce8b3e458dddb60c61fe5a3b2:disqus" href="http://disqus.com/thingiverse-98df4e0ce8b3e458dddb60c61fe5a3b2/electricmonk9 see the remix I posted. I had to split the buildplate for legs and guns to be able to print them reliably.

I noticed! Very nice idea.

Very nice model. I can't get the legs_and_guns assembly to be printed correctly however. The overhanging part warps upwards and halfway the print the printhead knocks the leg from the build plate. Would it be possible to split that plate into guns in one plate and the feet in another one? I don't have Solidworks available to edit it myself. If I have the separate feet I can print support material so the material doesn't warp that bad.

Also: Make more models!

Been working on this for the last few days - printed it with 0.16 mm layer height and 50 mm/s in silver PLA. Scaled it down to 75% (also tried 25% but that didn't worked out at all :)

Hey kojote, could you print it? I tried the right shoulder but it got warped just a few layers from beginning. Tried 0.1mm layer with 50 mm/s

Wow Awesome!  GJ!
How long does it take to print?

Awesome model. I printed the parts at 50% scale with 0.1mm layers. I glued the 2 guns parts together instead of printing the small pin connectors (was easier), the rest clicked together without problems.

Plates are a bit more difficult to print on my Ultimaker, so I cut the plates into seperate parts and used the experimental Project Planner in Cura to print them after eachother. (Excelent test case :))

I have uploaded a RAR file with all the Solidworks files in it, for parts with a left and right, you just have to mirror them part.

Awesome work Justin! Just Awesome! 8-)

I'm printing on a prusa mendel. no need to split the body... I think it will still fit on my print bed. Thanks!

i'll post a photo soon!
:)

The pins should scale properly, what machine are you printing it on, if you want I can split the main body into 2 parts so you could print it even bigger

Awesome!

Was wondering if the pins would work if you scaled the model up 20%? Just wanted to make it look more THOR sized when it sits next to my SCV 8-)

This is awesome! Impressive design - I am stunned that it prints without any support. And the print you did looks great! I'll be building this one for my son!

aweome! i was gonna design a 3d printable mech myself, but this one is so cool i don't have to do it myself anymore.. :)

Special thanks to cptnAWESOME for help with design and printing
