This 3D model consists of files in StereoLithography (.Stl) format that have been optimized for 3D printing.
Before printing the files, we strongly recommend reading the PRINTING DETAILS section.
Version 1 and Version 2 are the files for Highlander 3D model optimized for 3D printing, the preview pictures of which you see above.
It is recommended:
- to print Version 1 STL files on FDM/FFF 3D printers;
- to print Version 2 STL files on DLP/SLA/SLS 3D printers.

If you consider yourself to be MechWarrior Online fan, you will certainly like Highlander BattleMech 3D Printing Model which is inspired by a Mech from this game.
About 90 tons of armor that can develop speed up to 54 km per hour - Highlander kept the status of favourite mech among fans for quite a long time. Though, nowadays there are more powerful battle machines in the game, it is still considered to be an outstanding one.
Highlander belongs to assault class. It uses M-7 Gauss Rifle as a main weapon. Must say, that it is a perfect mech for close-in fighting. It is known for his maneuver - "Highlander Burial". His jumping engines were designed in such a way that a pilot could control the jet of engines to land on a moving enemy. In view of this, Highlander received reinforced armor on his legs and a strengthened inner skeleton. Such an attack, if successful, causes serious damage to another mech, whose pilot could also be crushed in the cockpit under the one of Highlander's massive feet.
Both FDM and SLS/SLA versions are available. The real size of Highlander is considered to be 17,5m.
- Is 1:60 scale and after being printed will stand 291mm high if to print without antennas and 333mm if to print with them;
- Is designed to save almost all movable elements its prototype has.
- Has removable hinges that should be printed with 100% fill to make them solid.
- Is 1:100 scale and will stand 175mm high if to print without antennas and 200mm if to print with them;
- Has as little details as possible to keep printing budget about 50-60 $.

On 07.11.2017 new version of joints have been added.
To use new joints, you do not need to reprint the whole model of your Mech!
You can find detailed picture guidelines about how to use new joints in your model HERE.
With the new joints you will get next advantages:
- Increases frictional force
- Possible to up scale or down scale the whole model
- Printable from any type of material
- Higher strength
- Material shrinkage does not affect at strength and friction
STL files are already available for download in “Source files” tab for Version 1 (FDM/FFF 3D printers). You can find them at the end of the list.

This model was tested in Cura 2.7.0. and print on an Ultimaker 2 in PLA material.
- You can print new joints with 20-30% infill.
- With the new joints you can up scale or down scale the whole model.
- All parts of connectors should be printed at 100% infill.
- You should print old joints with 100% infill.
- With the old joints do not try to up scale or down scale the whole model since it will not be assemble or movable after scale changes.
- Using the PLA material you should increase the scale of old joints at 2-3% in your slicing program.
- Using the ABS/CPE material you should increase the scale of old joints at 1% in your slicing program.
