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 Locust BattleMech 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.

Meet Locust! Super fast fighting BattleMech!
First it was introduced by Bergan Industries in 2499. The smallest Mech ever built. Locust was designed for reconnaissance and quick strike missions, using its excellent speed to outrun most enemies. In a situation where it was unable to outrun its enemies, the Mech did have a light array of weapons.

Amazing Battlemech with great speed. Not catchable on the battlefield, he quickly appear to provide fire support and disappear. Great for those who like the dynamic games. Many movements during the game constantly keep the players at the limit and make them completely immersed in the gameplay. He will not leave even the most skeptical gamer indifferent! Without boring slow multi-ton robots. Locust uses the entire space of the playing field for win and will be useful in any team. Now, he can decorate the space of your home!
And it is available for purchase on Gambody Marketplace!
In the FDM version, Locust has increased legs mobility, which allows to be in different poses and on different surfaces.
The SLS version is made for max ease of printing and saving material. It is made as a single piece but it looks very good and accurately conveys the shape of your favorite robot.
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
9500/60 = 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.

On 05.07.2018 new version of this model have been added.
The model was completely redesigned. The parts are cut to a greater number of parts in order to improve the fastenings and increase the wear resistance of the joints. Also, in order to separate small items such as antennas and others, and could be printed separately for quality improvement. There were added new fastening elements, in replacement of connectors to increase the elasticity of the rack and also ease of assembly and disassembly.
Here the name of new connections:
1. 3_foot_claw_(x4) need to print 4 times;
2. 8_A_Claw_(x2) need to print twice;
3. 9_Axis_2_A_Joint_(x2) need to print twice;
4. 12_Ge_lock_10H_(x5) need to print 5 times;
5. 25_Axis_2_A_Joint_long_(x2) need to print twice;
STL files are already available for download in “Source files” tab for FDM/FFF 2.0.

This model was tested in Cura 3.2.1 and printed on an Ultimaker 2 in PLA material.
- For parts of Locks and Claws you need to change "Brim" type to "Skirt" in Build Plate Adhesion section.
- You can print new joints with 20-30% infill.
- With the new joints you can up scale or down scale the whole model.
- 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.
Recommendations: For all parts of Locks and Claws you need to change "Brim" type to "Skirt" in Build Plate Adhesion section.
