This 3D model consists of files in StereoLithography (.Stl) format that has 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 Mad Cat MkII 3D miniature 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.

There’ll never be too many mechs from MechWarrior Online! This one is Mad Cat MkII 3D Printing Miniature inspired by the most nimble BattleMech among others of its class.
The development of Mad Cat MkII took fifteen months in order to increase profits of Clan Diamond Shark. Quite a big amount of these mechs was sold to Clans Nova Cat, Jade Falcon and Wolf-in-Exile. It belongs to assault combat vehicles and uses a pair of powerful Gauss Rifles.
Mad Cat MkII 3D Miniature has a lot of features MWO fans will enjoy:
- Mech’s LRM-10 are kept in theirs original position - at an angle of 45 degrees;
- Classic for mechs V-shaped position is saved;
- Guns are covered with two layers of armor like the ones canonic Mad Cat MkII has;
- Mech’s arms, knees, feet and torso are workable thanks to the hinges.
The real size of Mad Cat MkII mech is debatable. In this case, the prototype is considered to be 17.6 m tall, according to the odds between MkI (which is 16 m) and MkII models.
Both FDM and SLS/SLA versions are available.
FDM - version 1:
- Is 1:60 scale and after being printed will stand 293 mm tall;
- Has removable hinges that should be printed with 100% infill to make them solid.
SLS/SLA - version 2:
- Is 1:100 scale and will stand 176 mm tall;
- Has as few details as possible to keep printing budget to about 50-60 $.

On 08.11.2017 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.
On 18.01.2018 the new joints were optimized. Also new spacers were designed to hide the joints. Now the distance between parts of the model has been reduced and the appearance of the model has improved. The STL files are already available for purchase and download in “Source files” tab for Version 1. 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.
- 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.
