Occasionally you come across something in a video game that you just have to make youself. This Phoenix Kit from Apex Legends is roughly to scale(emphasis on roughly)
Standing at about 420mm, it feels great and looks exactly as I had hoped.
I'm very pleased with how it turned out. There is definitely room for improvements on it, and I encourage anyone with better skills to remix it and make it even better!
It was made to be a light up display to have next to my computer. So, it doesn't have any special internal mechanisms to make it move smoothly or behave just like it would in-game. I'm sure many of you could come up with something awesome, and I would love to see what you do with it!
Thank you for checking it out and I appreciate any feedback you have. (I'm still learning, but having a whole lot of fun doing so.)

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to help in any way that I can.
There are many parts, so it requires a lot of patience with the print time and the final assembly. You will need to glue the inner parts and some outer parts together and you'll also need to draw/paint any details you want to add to the design after they are printed.
Number of parts:
1x Black Rim
1x Top Cap black portion
1x Bronze part of top cap
1x Middle Cylinder
2xBronze Part of Middle Cylinder
1x Bottom of Shield Battery with Threads(Same part for Phoenix Kit)
1x Holding Part of Kit
1x Orange part of base
1x Black part of base
2x Side Windows
2x Cut to size Plexiglass sheets (1/16 inch) 34mm wide 164mm long with small notches cut on bottom corners to allow it to insert fully
1x Handle Base
6x Copper Housings
24x Copper Parts
1x Bottom Base
Check notes for brand details PLA
I am still learning 3D printing myself, so I am hesitant with providing advice on the ideal print settings. However, I will just say what worked for me.
I printed everything(except copper parts and name tag) on my CR-10S.
Layer Height- 0.2
Speed- 100mm/s (Reduced speed by 10% for the first layers)
Build Plate Adhesion- Skirt
Support- Only used supports for the rim of the base of the handle
For the Copper Parts and the name tag is used my Robo C2 (just because I wanted to speed up the overall printing time)
Filament Temp- 205
Bed Temp- None(Doesn't have bed heating)
Layer Height- 0.15
Silver-Silk Silver by CC3D (Warning: This filament liked to clog on me so be ready to potentially have some hiccups with this one)
Gold/Bronze(files say bronze but should be gold, sorry)- Silk Antique Gold by CC3D
Black- Real Black by 3D Solutech
Silk Copper- CC3D on Amazon
Holding part of Kit-Grey by MatterHackers
Bottom of Base- True Orange by Hatchbox
