the claws of everyones favorite X-men character..
now in extruded plastic form.

print in white to give you that Bone claw look


This is meant to be printed on large platform 3D printers like the Replicator.

Print 3 of the Claws and one of the claws handles for each hand. (6 claws + 2 handles for a set)
No support is needed.

you will need to cut(or dremel) away the support wall I put in the handle slots or print the flat bottom handle if you'd rather not bother with that.

The fixed file was run through netfab.

I want to print this for a girl that is 10 years old... do you have any idea how much should I shrink it?
Would you measure your hand (from wrist to the middle finger uper part) please??

Thank you!

The proper way to scale this is to measure the hand from across the palm and the thickness of each finger.. my palm is 8cm across the handle is 5.6cm across, My fingers are 2cm thick, the spacing between claws is 1.8cm across.. I would measure the girls palm and finger thickness and scale down all parts by the same percentage. I like to keep the spacing between the claws slightly smaller than the actual thickness of the fingers it makes the claws hold on to your hand better when not making a fist.

You are very kind sir, thank you for your fast response. I will post the picture as soon as I print it.

please turn it into a blender file

I am looking to print some of these as they look amazing! I don't mean to be rude, but I have a larger printer but little experience with 3d design. How could I place the three claws onto the same print file please?

Depending on what slicing software you are using you may be able to add the same claw file two more times and adjust the positions. But without knowing the exact dimensions of your build platform... I can't know how to lay the claws out to match your needs.

I am looking for a set of claws for x-23 for a cosplay I am making for my daughter. I have tried my hand at 3d modeling but to no avail, any chance I can get this converted to a 2 claw style like this http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/024/e/9/x_23_by_faysea-d4njjsf.jpghttp://fc05.deviantart.net/fs7...

I get this error from Sli3er?
=> Processing triangulated mesh
Warning: The input file is not manifold. You might want to check the resulting gcode before printing.
The model has overlapping or self-intersecting facets. I tried to repair it, however you might want to check the results or repair the input file and retry.
No layers were detected. You might want to repair your STL file and retry.

upgrade your copy of sli3er or try a different gcode generator software, a couple of people using sli3er reporting problems with one of my other models as well.. but they said it fixed after they updated to the latest version..

Neat! If you print it so the handle is laying flat (with a small flat spot instead of being totally rounded) you wouldn't need any support in the slots.

yeah I thought about that before.. but I liked the round feeling of the handle..

since that could just be me, I've uploaded the flat bottom handle :)
