"Half unfeeling machine, half raging horned devil. This walking nightmare has a rocket launcher for an arm and will definitely reach out and touch you."

I haven't heard nothing about Doom here in Thingiverse, but there has to be someone who faced this thing at least once! Where are all the Doom fans?

This was my first attempt on making something with Sculptris, and at cutting abstract geometries to make them printable, so this is the result.
It was modelled in Sculptris, looking at the game sprites; posed, corrected, and cut in Blender, and repaired with NetFabb Basic.
Then it was painted by a friend of mine, with miniature paints.

This is a High Poly model, so if Slic3r takes 5 minutes to slice it don't worry.

By the time being, it doesn't stand on its feet, unless you put a piece of paper on its left hoof. My plan is to make a pedestal specially designed for it, with a "Cyberdemon" hellish sign being displayed.

The blender file with armature for posing is not provided by now because it is 150MB big, and I don't know if the server can bear it.


You have several options, depending on what you want. I recommend to check your gcodes, and if needed, repair with NetFabb or others. There may be distortions on the Gcode (I had duplicated layers sometimes, I think it's fixed but, who knows?)
And for 0.5mm nozzle users, I recommend to scale it a bit up, or you may be unable to print the hand. It is so small compared to the whole model.

The basic option is taking the sliced parts, print them out with no support material, and glue them together. They are 15 files. I haven't checked, but I think all parts fit in a 10x10 mm bed, so the printing is somewhat easy.

Another option is to take the cyberdemon.stl and print it out with support material, if you feel like.

And the last option is to take the Cyberdemon.sc1 and derivate it, by modifying it in sculptris. Please note that chest was corrected AFTER exporting it on sculptris so the sculpt may feature a less muscular chest.

Could you make a smaller model for this so it can be pruned on a makerbot mini just size wise so it fits in the build area

I'm not familiar with the Makerbot 3D printing software (is it called makerware, I think?), but I'm pretty sure you can resize the model with it, when you place it on the tray.

Anyway, there is an additional file with the model cut by parts, that can fit in even in a 10x10 tray with not so much hassle. It's easier to build that way, because you do not need to rely on support material to get a good finish. You just print it and glue it together. That's how I built mine.

Why don't you mak some other doom demons like the Barron of hell and some other demons

I'd love to, but I lack the talent, and the time.

This scuplt was made by looking to the cyberdemon script chart of the original doom, and took me the whole summer holidays to get it right so far.

This summer I don't plan playing around with sculpts, but if had time, I'd try making a pinky, or a baron.

I removed the Non-commercial license from this sculpture, so now a commercial use of it is permitted as long as you credit me as modeller, and share with the same license (This is, CC BY-SA).

BADASS! I still play Doom regularly. Nicely done man!

Impresionante, ¿sabes que tipo de imprimación usó?

La primera que encontré, en una tiendecilla de modelismo. Era de color blanco y espesa, para tapar las capas, y luego le dió una capa de pintura negra mate.

Esa pintura era suya, y no se cual es. Tenía un aspecto terroso al tacto.

He de decir que se hizo en PLA, y que el PLA se dejaba pintar bien con cualquier cosa.

Solo puedo decir que es GENIAL!!!!! muy buen modelo. Lo imprimi y quede fascinado :D bastantes detalles.
Me encuentro en proceso de pintado. A pesar que no soy bueno en eso :P.


:D!!! Gracias!!!

Me alegro mucho de que te guste!

Cuando termines de pintarlo busca un momento para postearlo en "made", que me encanta ver cómo la gente se lo imprime :D

Did you print it with ABS or PLA? Painting PLA it's very difficult if it's not smoothed first.

It was printed in natural PLA, and then coated with some spray primer. The paint stuck to the model correctly, I didn't even think that would be a problem.

I don't have bad experiences painting PLA, but I can't recall if I ever made a work without primer.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply.

I have one more question
Did you do some sanding?


Nice I grew up with doom :) rock on.

how did you paint this? really good job!

It was painted by a friend of mine.

After applying primer and base color (black), she painted the brown zones with an almost dry paintbrush (of a slightly large size) so the brown paint would stick to the outer zones of the muscles of the monster, leaving black in the background.
Cables were painted one by one, and metallic parts were painted directly, with no special technique used.

I'm happy that you like it. :)

Ok, this is awesome.  I loved Doom so much as a kid.  I will have to see if I can create some 3d models.  You know what would be awesome? Mecha Hitler from Wolfenstein 3d!

Oh man, I saved up for so long to buy 8 Megs of RAM (89 bucks at the time), ordered it, rode my bike for miles to pick it up in town, and put it in my Packard Bell 486 DX2--Just so I could play Doom without first booting up in DOS. This is awesome; brings back all the memories of being a young nerd.

Same here, I was lucky to have a DX4-100 ! upgraded to 8 Meg of Ram,


There you have it, painted. Hope you like it.

I'm 8 years old again :)

Nicely modeled!
I think sculptris is very under appreciated.
It really makes modeling organic forms
fairly easy.
looking forward to seeing more of your work!

It's so easy to model on Scluptris, but I consider I had a lot of luck with this one.

I'm happy that you like it. :]

It's a RepRap, you insensitive clod!

The only purpose for displaying the printer on the main photo was showing the cyberdemon coming out from it. 
I didn't even think that Thingiverse would be mad for displaying a Reprap on the main photo.Anyway, I'm painting it, so I'll change the main photo when its done. I hope you like it.

Don't remove the RepRap from the photo. You should be proud of it. This is not a Makerbot only site. You will find that many people who own a Makerbot also own a RepRap. You will find all sorts of different printer types represented on this site. Makerbot was born from RepRap originally anyway. 

Hey, I like your main photo precisly as  it is! :) I'm looking forward to see photos of your painted cyberdemon!

Maybe I should point out to the general audiance that the paraphrased "insert-correcting-statement, you insensitive clod!" is a meme from slashdot:

"Some users will also refer to seemingly innocent remarks by correcting
them and adding "you insensitive clod!" to the statement – a reference
to a February 14, 1986, Calvin & Hobbes cartoon[53] or the 11th season The Simpsons episode, Last Tap Dance in Springfield,
wherein Frink exclaims to Homer, "I was merely trying to spare the
girl's feelings, you insensitive clod!" Users will also typically refer
to articles referring to data storage and data capacity by inquiring how
much it is in units of Libraries of Congress.[54]

Should I change the main picture or something?

 Well, its certainly not nothing wrong with your work, that's for sure.

I actually really thought it would be featured within a day, I mean its awesome. I can tell from the revisiting shivers I had way back when. There is also no intellectual property issue with it, as its an interpretation.

 sorry, I would hope that wouldn't be a factor.
I would hope models are featured for less mercenary reasons!

Seems like that hope we share was naive?

Does the sculpture and/or files lack quality in a artistic or technical(?), obviously not. Very suspicious or at least really strange that it's not featured.

Maybe they are just waiting for me to paint it...

 Oh wow! That is really something to be inspired by! Thanks for sharing the painted pics! :)

Now it's even more strange that it's not featured, though. But screw 'em.
