3D Printing - StarWars C-3PO Low Poly

in design •  last year


Yesterday I printed my C-3PO Low Poly design I created a while back using Blender and I love the result!

The model was printed with the Prusa i3 MK2S which I bought as a kit a month ago and is exceeding my expectation in regards to print quality. If you are looking for an affordable 3d Printer that provides great quality, this is the one I can recommend to buy.

Here are some images and gifs of the print progress.

Judge the print quality for yourself looking at the print layers. I didn't have the pleasure yet to test a more expensive printer like the Ultimaker 2 or 3 but can't imagine that those printers (3 times more expensive) will have a significant better print quality.

Towards the end of the print something happened that could have been easily prevented if I just added a little bit of glue on the print bed. The model lost grip and I had to stop the print at 90%

Ultimately it is not such a bad thing since I am using the model now as my pen holder :-)

I posted a link to the Prusa website in my post. You can find the details on their site.



Wow, very nice.. 3d printing is also on my list for 3 years... never took the time too really start with it.. I think you should have someone near you to really tell the ins and outs.
