Vulcan Tank for 3D printing is inspired by the heavily armoured main battle tank from the popular tabletop game. If you want to expand your collection of mini battle vehicles, you can’t leave this 3D model out.

Enhanced with intricate details and fine design lines, the Vulcan 3D model is an assembly 3D model split into 12 parts. The largest parts of the 3D model use little infill. This means that you will be able to save on printing filament. This applies to SLS/SLA 3D printers.

The entire model was modeled in Autodesk Maya and ZBrush modeling programs. It is converted to STL file format. The files are checked and corrected in Netfabb and can be easily handled in any slicing program. 

For you convenience, you can download some sample files to test print before buying all the STL files of the 3D model.

Click the video icon to the far right of the model’s picture slider to watch the video for the model’s assembly. Follow the instructions for an easy and correct assembly process.

After being 3D printed, Vulcan 3D model will stand 214 mm wide, 166 mm tall, and 280 mm depth.

On 15.08.2018 have been added 4 new versions.

The model was completely redone. Here is the list of changes:
1. Changed the cutting of the model for more comfortable printing with the smallest amount of supports.
2. Reworked assembly of the model and Locks were added for connecting the parts.
3. Increased detalization, as well as worked out small technical details in order to maximize the repeat of the game analog model.
4. This update was divided into 4 versions, for comfortable printing on different types of printers. The SLS version of Vulcan Tank was divided into 2 new scale versions of 1:72 and 1:96.

One part of Lock (2_Ge_lock_10H_(x78)) you need to print 78 times.

New sizes of this model:

FFF/FDM 2.0 version 1:48 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 134 mm tall, 174 mm wide, 227 mm deep;

DLP/SLA 1.0 version 1:72 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 89 mm tall, 115 mm wide, 151 mm deep;

SLS 1.0 version 1:72 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 89 mm tall, 115 mm wide, 151 mm deep;

SLS 1.0 version 1:96 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 67 mm tall, 86 mm wide, 113 mm deep;

There are 17 parts for FFF/FDM 2.0 version, 11 parts for DLP/SLA 1.0 version and 2 parts for each SLS 1.0 versions.

STL files are already available for download in “Source files” tab for (FFF/FDM 2.0), (DLP/SLA 1.0), (SLS 1.0 (1:72 Scale)), (SLS 1.0 (1:96 Scale)).
