A 3D model of the 'Hand of the King' pin I made copying the design on the Game of Thrones TV show. Polygonal modelling and sculpting done in Blender.

Wear with caution. The previous two Hands did not live long aftrer their appointment.

EDIT: The new file (Hand_of_the_King_v4.stl) has been fixed and lo longer has intersecting meshes, so it can be sliced in any software with no problems.


The "Hand_of_the_King_v4.stl" should be already scaled and oriented properly. If you have trouble getting the pin to stick to the printbed, try printing "Hand_of_the_King_v4_support.stl". It has a little support that makes it stick better to the printbed and can be trimmed off afterwards.

great design !
used for testing new filaments @0.2 or 0.1 and scale at 60%.
the test's print goes to my friends, big fans of GOT ;).

Great model. Posted my results under Made.

This turned out really well. I just got a bobby pin and hot glued it in the slit in the back to make it fully use able for a costume.

I noticed there is an opening on the back. I'd assume for adding a pin of some sort? Do you have a link for the pin you are using?

I think that pin looks fairly ugly :( I modelled mine after this one, which looks much better in my opinion http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/zoom/ebdf_game_of_thrones__hand_of_the_king_pin.jpg

Nice Work !

Can you sent me STEP models or other, because I need to improve some detail with Solidworks.

Unfortunately this model doesn't slice properly for me in Simplify3D. The area below the thumb is corrupted.

I got around to fixing the mesh, so the new file should work fine now

Yeah, that issue has been pointed out to me by several people. It's due to intrsecting meshes. I didn't bother merging all the meshes into one because I slice with either Cura or Craftware, both of which handle intersecting meshes perfectly. Simplify and Slic3r don't, and the error that you got appears. If you want to print this properly, you can either fix the mesh using netfabb or slice in Cura or Craftware.

This is a pretty awesome design. Only suggestion I have is about the slot on the back. Make it about twice as wide to fit bar shaped safety pins in there.

That is a very nice model. I never really got into Game of Thrones, but this is cool.

Do I need to print this with supports? For some reason in Cura it won't allow me to add support.

No, you don't need supports. You might need to rotate it in Cura so that the flat side is on the printbed, but once it's in that position there are no overhangs (except for the recess where you insert the pin, but that's not an issue).

how did you get stl file from blender?

File > Export > stl

That's really good! How did you get that finish?

From his Make:
Printed it 10cm long, layer height 0.08, cleaned imperfections with an X-acto blade, painted it gold, applied some black paint and wiped it off to darken crevices, glued a safety pin to the back, and voil

Do you have a recommendation for the type of paint? Acrylic?
