Great model! Printed it and my friends love it!

I'm glad you guys think so, I had no clue so many people would like it when I made it.

How did you make the Verdigris? It looks great. I am printing this out now, and plan to finish it similar to the way you did. Any tips would be appreciated.

Hey Mikedag, my original print was with copper pla, so I used vinegar and salt to provide the color. Basically I brushed the mixture on the print until I received the desired effect.

So the Salt and Vinegar turned to that green? How long did it take?

Yes it reacted with the copper in the pla that I used. It was Colorfabb copperfill and it took about 24hrs including drying time to get a result I liked

THIS IS NOT OKAY!!! violently sobs

(GREAT model, really)

Thank you for thinking so, I didn't realize so many people would enjoy it when I first created it.

Having a lot of trouble painting Hodor's rear-half from the Hodors_Body file. Once it gets to the infill layer, it basically just skips the next mm then starts printing again, which causes the print to fail. I notice some of the "hair" is actually just free-floating geometry (picture attached). Could this be causing my problems?

I am not sure, I haven't heard of any problems with it, and yes the hair portion is a bit choppy. This was one of my earlier 3d files that I put together and haven't had a chance to try and fix it. When I printed it, I didn't have any layer skip issues. If you're able to edit the file to remove the hair section or maybe repair it, that may be your best bet. I will attempt to fix the issue as soon as I can. Thank you for your time and efforts.

Could you tell me how you printed this? Detail lvl, support, etc?

Hello, and thank you for the question. The layer height was 0.06 and the infill 50%, as far as supports the only supported areas were between the arms and the door. I can't remember which speed I printed at, it may have been75-80%. I printed all the pieces flat on the build plate, the 3D preview image put up by Thingiverse is in the incorrect orientation.

Thank you for the heads up, I’m not sure there is much I can do about the resale of this model. There was another I noticed on eBay recently as well.

Thanks for sharing. Slightly off-topic, but can you share your painting technique - looks great!

Sure, no problem. The Hodor in the picture was printed in Colorfabb Copperfill. The Copperfill added weight and contains a good amount of copper in the material. I used vinegar and salt after lightly roughing up the surface I sort of painted it on. After a couple applications and drying it ended up as that color. I sealed it with matte spray paint after it dried.

The jar just behind the door stop has the the salt and vinegar in it. The blue color is from the copper :)

question on that. i've got it printed. but when i google about using the salt vinegar people then to soak it.. what kinda of ration for vinegar/salt did you use and you literally just painted it on with a brush.. how long does it take to change/discolor? thanks in advance and its an amazing model! i'll post my makes when i'm done.

The information I went off of is on this link.

I mainly followed their instructions but, I mixed about two tablespoons of salt with about half a cup of white vinegar. The solution was applied over three to four days allowing it to dry each time. Yes, I did brush it on, just make sure you wear gloves and work/dry in a ventilated area.

awesome thank you so much!

No problem, let me know how it comes out

will do. I used the sainsmart 40% copperfill. so will be interesting to see how that reacts to it.
