I split up thorn into 8 peices so I could print it on my Da Vinci 1.0 printer (20cm x 20cm x 20cm).
I'm currently printing it and it's estimated 20 hours total printing.
Filament is Hatchbox 1 kg red filament.


Clean up model using repair program or mesh modeler.
Split into correct size.
ABS glue and paint, needed amount of sanding/filing.

How did you separate the thorn? What program did you use?

While the thing is finished, it was a gift and I haven't gotten him to send me pictures with scool and all, I recommend printing at 230 celcius and 95 degrees celcius for the bed to stop minor warping. My filament wasn't the highest quality but when glued and cleaned it is easily recognizable and beastly.

Hey did this come out good for you? I have absolutely no idea how to check if this might work since i dont have experience with software and programs that open stl. files. I have been working a bit with autocad for school but thats about it. My class has a 3D printer and i'd like to know if i can print one of these because well, lets admit it, the Thorn looks badass. I know some 3D printers are not compatible but I know some people in the class that might be able to tell me whether it is or not.

But my main question is, did all 8 parts come out and did they all fit together?

It will take a long time to print all the peices. I used ABS I think there is no problem with PLA other than warping. With ABS glue and plenty of print time/filament you might be able to print it at your school. I'm using 123 auto desk and exporting the .123d file to .stl so I can edit them easier, I'm still fairly new so it wasn't too hard to get the hang of it.

Thank you for the reply. Also can you recommend me a 3D modeling software that is easy to learn, or should i just stick to AutoCAD?

Depends on what you are trying to do. Different programs are tailored towards various things. I'm currently learning Blender which is free and works quite well.

I really don't know, 123 auto desk is kinda a pain in the ass with how it works with sketches/solids and I haven't tried other programs, ask someone at your school for advice.

How did it come out?

I am currently stuck on part 6/8, the front right barrel. I'm having issues resetting my Da Vinci filament. So far though it's pretty good, a fraction bigger on the right side and the left and right don't fit PERFECTLY but close enough to be easily assembled with ABS plastic glue, pics will follow soon of the 5/8 pieces at least.
