Summary

Meka Dragon from King of Tokyo. Designed to replace the cardboard cutout that comes with the game. Some assembly required.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can try to print the full model as one piece. Let me know how it goes. Otherwise, there are two sets of files available: FULL and FLAT. First, the COMMON files are needed in any case. Then, you can either print the FLAT files, in which tricky parts are split in half with the flat side facing the print platform. These will be easier to print, but will require more assembly later. The FULL pieces will be more difficult to print neatly with a filament printer due to overhangs, but will require less assembly after printing.

The head should be printed with support. It is aligned the way it is to keep the support material out of the teeth, from where it would be a pain to remove.

Some notes about printing the FULL parts:

  • The body should be printable without supports, but the segment seams may sag a bit. Use supports if you're not sure about printing overhangs
  • All the limbs and the tail should be printed with supports, too. They're aligned to ensure the connector studs print ok.

You can find the rest of the King of Tokyo monsters in this collection. There is also a blog post with more information about the models.

Post-Printing

Assembly

The parts need to be glued together. If you printed the FLAT parts, start by gluing the two halves of each part together first. Here I used plenty of ABS slurry to make sure any gap between the halves gets filled. Any excess slurry can be cut or filed off once the its is set.

Test fit each part before applying glue; The parts may need minor filing or sanding to fit.
