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.
Scale:
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

FDM 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.
SLS/SLA version:
- 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.
