A bonecharm from Dishonored 1. This is a remix of Intentional3D's bonecharm, which was included in the files for Corvo's mask. I wanted the clasps to be movable and for as much as possible of the piece to print without supports and as cleanly as possible, so I split it up into an assembly kit. All parts are now positioned for a smooth print result; they can be printed in separate materials for easier paintjobs and have good surfaces for glueing.
Now you can also choose, whether you want your bonecharm to have three pieces of bone, one of metal or whichever version you prefer!
My own print in the photos is of an earlier version of my model, which had some issues with fitting the clasps into the holes and glueing the "arms" of the charm firmly to the middle. I've fixed these problems and this upload has wider holes for the clasps and a system for the arms to stick into the middle for easier glueing.
I'm relatively new to 3D-modelling and -printing, but the pieces printed nicely for me, so I hope they work out fine for anyone else that wants to give this a try. I have not yet test-printed this tweaked version yet, so if you should run into any issues with it, just let me know and I'll fix it.
Enjoy and let me know how yours turned out!
The only piece that profits from supports is the metal arm, other than that, everything should print nicely without supports and rafts. If you have trouble with bed-adhesion with small parts, you might consider a raft for the clasps.
I didn't sand my piece, but the bone parts could profit from some sanding or primer. Don't overdo it with the sanding though, lest you lose the detail of the little rune carved into the side!
I painted the individual parts with acrylics and gave some touchups after assembly. I'll probably add some clearcoat to the metal parts later.
Assembly is pretty straight-forward:
- Glue a "base" piece to every arm of your charm
- Glue the arms into their slots in the middle piece
- Bend the clasps open to fit them into their attachments in the middle piece
Here's a view of how the arm, base and middle connect:
Enjoy painting and assembling!
