Watch the video about how I created this here: https://youtu.be/DzTemn0n1hM

This is the Iron Giant and Hogarth! It's perfect timing since he seems to be a decently big part of Ready Player One. But I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the original animation. I used to watch this with my brother all the time. And this scene is by far the most powerful for me. I hope you guys like it! :)

I modeled the Iron Giant in Fusion 360, I posed him and split him up in there as well. Then I made all the files print ready in Simplify3D. I modeled Hogarth in ZBrush.

Fillamentum was the filament sponsor for this project. So thank you Fillamentum. Go check out their filament here:

After the parts were printed, we assembled them using a ton of glue and 2 part epoxy. And Chelsey painted Hogarth using acrylic paints.

Printers: Prusa MK3, Prusa MK2S & Robo R2
Lightest Gray: Fillamentum Metallic Gray

Medium Gray: Fillamentum Iron Gray

Darkest Gray: Fillamentum Vertigo Gray

Printer: Peopoly Moai
Peopoly Resin


If you're going to print this, be aware that scaling it down may cause some problems. There are a few parts that will become to small to print (notably the finger cuffs). I will be making a few derivatives of this model and uploading them (hopefully shortly) that should allow for printing smaller. :)

Other wise if you run into any weird issues, leave a comment here and I'll do my best to keep up on them and fix any issues!

I have all the back chest pieces all printed and glued together, but I don't see the front chest pieces into smaller pieces, has anyone successfully printed the front chest pieces on a di3? or has anyone split the front chest pieces that can share the files?

Am I missing an assembly guide somewhere?

Do you have an answer ?

Not as yet....no.

The Iron Giant was a great movie. Thank you for creating it in real life.

For those who have a large printer - I have the Tevo Tornado - 300 x 300 x 400, I can print this model at 130%. It can be printed larger if the chest pieces are oriented vertically. It will put the supports on the face side of the print though. The was Garrett has orientated the parts for printing is to minimize the need for clean-up.

What an amazing model you have created :) Also - the way you have packaged the files into the different types of colours, it's very much appreciated. @ChelsC423 - I love your work too - you both are very talented.

If I have time, I will attempt to create a instructional video on the assembly.

Thank you both so much for the great work you do.

Yes..... Yes you can. Please post on the progress of your print!

hi, how do you assemble the neck??

It’s in ready player one

Is that the only pose we can use him with?

I’ve begun the print! But I can’t figure out how to fit the fin into the head??

Really struggled with that myself. It basically needs a bit of force (the way I did it anyway), put one end of the fin through the top of the head, and then push it towards the right spot - then you have to force the other end of the fin through the other end of the opening. I can't remember which way round (whether front end or rear end first), but I believe it was the front end of the fin. I don't know how to explain it any better than that I'm afraid, but it does fit.

It's actually a genius design.

I just wanted to say again, that you have done right by my childhood on this one. Fantastic job!!

That is amazing!!! I've watched the video of it being made....HOLY CRAP! Keep up the fantastic work.

ERMAHGERD!!! I saw this on all the MRRF videos. You're absolutely amazing. You've inspired me to work harder with Fusion 360 and Z Brush. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Please model bay Max with armour in red please please please!!!

is this articulated?

"32 comments 0 made"

Sounds about right. I absolutely loved The Iron Giant, as well as Ready Player One, so the movie is going to be awesome. Thanks for making this model, and hopefully somebody posts a make.

My printer is going to be busy!

instruction to how build it?

Thanks you master!

Any chance you could model a mini Parzival next for those of us less interested in Hogarth? lol

Comments deleted.

Gambody files are generally overpriced and rubbish, this is pretty common knowledge. I'd print this one instead - and it looks better.

a little harsh but yeah I get where you're coming from

Comments deleted.

You're right it is very harsh. And completely uncalled for. Everyone already wins because he releases ALL his AMAZING models for free all the time. All of them. He spends his valuable time and effort to nicely release them to ungrateful, inconsiderate people like you. What a shame THAT is. Every single piece is nicely labeled, so if you can't figure out how to put it together.... That sounds like a you problem. Sadly he was going to spend his time making a video for help with assembly. How about a thank you for all the amazing models he puts up for FREE on a regular basis.

this is also a bit harsh, I wasn't trying to start an argument, just politely pointing it out ;D

She is just protecting her partner. I have deleted my comments as I don't need to offend anyone.

Oh yes, none of that was directed at you

I love this model but is there any chance you can upload it as a single piece for those of us that don't want to print it quite so massive and have SLA printers

Great job.
Any idea how many spools of each filament you went through?

Wow! Wow! Wow! ...
I am speechless


Great... But where is the Superman chest plate?

Seems like the only thing missing to this amazing design

When I saw it, I was really moved! Congratulations, it's perfect...
I found your project immediately after seeing Ready Player One, seeing it on screen again was an exciting dive into childhood

HI Garrett , Love the Iron Giant. Awesome job, one of the best I've seen

this is absolutely amazing! i don't think i have the patience to print it, but damn i want to. did just get a third printer, so maybe... Again, AMAZING work.

One of my favourite models I've seen this year, Awesome work buddy! the fondant is perfect for the scenery!

Im 5 pieces into printing this model and just realized Im going to have no idea how to put this together. Could you upload a diagram of how to piece this together?

WOW this is sooooooooooo EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!it wold be perfect if you can make Scar throws Mufasa off cliff,sadest moment of disney and most imotional moment

hi what infill and what i use grid or honeycomb

Amazing! Been working on my own iron giant, but so far I've only posted my first version of the head. I'm relatively new to 3D design... Keep up the good work.

Does the entire model articulates?
Another awesome work man!

What's the final dimensions on this? Got a size on the biggest piece (aka bed size required to print at 100%)? Do you know roughly how much of each filament you used?

You are a genius!! I love this movie but i dont find a decently gigant robot until now :) (sorry for my baad english)

"Sos lo mejor que existe! Adoro esa película, pero en ningún lado encontraba un robot que valiera la pena, hasta ahora!! :D"

Thank you thank you thank you! I was just watching you do this on youtube the other day and I'm amazed at the ease in which you command fusion 360! I was hoping you would post the files soon. I can't wait to get started! again... Thank you so much your super talented and look forward to your next project.

Love the Iron Giant. Awesome job, one of the best I've seen. Thanks for sharing.

This is totally awesome!

omg... I was only watching a youtubers vlog last night and he caught up with you and your partner at a convention where you had a stall, the iron man was the main thing and it looked amazing... 100% respect to you , and also to your partner who does the painting

That is a marvelous piece of work. I am so glad that you decided to post it. Thank you!

How many rolls of each colour filament did this take?

what's the biggest part to see what scale in need to use if needed?

Awesome work dude!
