I posted a Gandalf minifig I printed on reddit and people were asking for the STL, so here it is. All of these models come from printabrick.org I am in no way claiming that I created them, I only compiled and modified them for printing. One commenter suggested I name him "Randalf de Gré" to avoid copyright infringement, I don't think that Gandalf is copyrighted by the Tolkien estate anyway, but I thought it was fun.
This Gandalf should be compatible with other lego sets, pieces and accessories
To have all of the pieces you need to assemble your very own Gandalf, you need only print the first four STLs.
Important Unessecary STLs are marked with a "O" for Optional, should be used by people who want to assemble them their own way or repeat a failed piece.
Please read the instructions and follow them.
0.1 or 0.2 VERY IMPORTANT USE 0.05 LAYER HEIGHT FOR CAPE
I used 20% Zig Zag, but you can use what you want
Very Important Please leave the cape adequate time to cool on the bed after the print is finished, shouldn't take more than 5 minutes and do not forget to use rafts for everything EXCEPT the cape.
I used a 55 degree angle and lines for my supports, but you go and believe in yourself
Some of the pieces might not fit together from the get-go. Namely the arms and hands.
For the arms you should use a small pen knife and go around in circles taking away material from the torso holes until you can squeeze it in. A swiss army knife classic SD works very well and is what I used.
The same process applies to the hands as to the arms. Go around in circles with a knife, however the arm models are about a sixteenth of an inch too long, so you should cut them a little bit at a time until they go in a satisfactory amount. Use pliers.
Sometimes the head might not want to go on easily, but if it goes in some of the way, it's likely that you can push it in with more force.
Sometimes the beard will wiggle while the head is pushed in as far at will go, this is likely because of the bottom of the beard being imperfect or other outstanding strands of filament.
