All STL files for 3D printing have been checked for errors and corrected in Netfabb.
Note: Before starting 3D printing the model, read the Printing Details for CURA 2.3.1 software.
There are 19 parts for FDM version and only 1 part for SLS.
All limbs and weapon in FDM version are movable!
All parts of the joints must be printed at 100% infill.
Based on the scale of the MWO tables and a pilot proportions of 2m tall.
In the game it size is 8 meters and 9.5 meters with antennas.
8000/60 = 133 mm(5.23 in.) tall - without antenna
95000/60 = 155 mm(6.1 in.) tall - with antenna
9500/100 = 95 mm(3.74 in.) tall - SLS version
- Is 1:60 scale and after being printed will stand 155 mm tall, 76.8 mm wide, 77.9 mm deep;
- Is designed to save almost all movable elements its prototype has;
- Has removable hinges that should be printed at 100% infill to make them solid.
- Is 1:100 scale and will stand 95.1 mm tall, 47.1 mm wide, 47.8 mm deep.
- Has as few details as possible to keep printing costs down.
