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.
Malcador Infernus Tank 3D Printing Model comes in 5 versions for each 3D printer type (FFF/FDM, DLP/SLA and SLS). Files for each version are available for download after the purchase.
Detailed information about this model is available in the DESCRIPTION section.
Malcador tank model for 3D printing is shaped according to the tank with the same name that appears in the widely known and played 40k war video game. The tank is included in the Imperial armed forces, although only in the second-line arsenal.
With an ancient design, Marlcador Infernus’ peak of production was during the Great Crusade as a variant pattern of the Malcador Assault Tank. Many tanks have rolled off the production line, being used by the armed forces in battles.
This Malcador heavy tank 3D model features a fuel trailer the tank tows behind. This design idea is not strategically brought into application. Due to the position of the fuel trailer the tank is subject to sudden explosions, if dealing with fire.
Malcador battle tank made for 3D printing showcases the fuel trailer attached to the tank’s rear. It is accurately reproduced and features another important element of the WH40K Malcador Tank – its Inferno Gun, capable of throwing immense flames. Its fuel trailer and Inferno Gun gave the tank the name of flame thrower tank, clearing mine areas and making them safer for passage.
Malcador Tank 3D Print Size
The 3D printable Malcador is showcased with its fearful gun in forward position. The model’s replica has all design elements of the game model. It consists of 23 parts, all optimized to fit onto 16x16cm print bed. The engine hoses at the tank’s rear were the most difficult parts to model.
The 3D model is designed to save filament and use little support when being printed. The files have been checked and corrected in Netfabb and have been executed in Cura 15.06. The error-free files can be printed on all types of 3D printers.
Malcador heavy tank size in assembly form is: 169mm depth, 250mm wide and 101mm tall. The modeling took about 22 hours.

On 19.12.2016 the model files have been optimized and made solid. They now are adapted to be 3D printed using any slicing program. 3D model files are already available for purchase and download.
On 11.07.2018 new version of this model 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 Malcador Infernus was divided into 2 new scale versions of 1:72 and 1:96.
One part of Lock (2_Ge_lock_10H_(x88)) you need to print 88 times.
New sizes of this model:
FFF/FDM version 1:48 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 121 mm tall, 188 mm wide, 425 mm deep;
DLP/SLA/SLS version 1:72 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 81 mm tall, 126 mm wide, 283 mm deep;
SLS version 1:96 Scale dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 61 mm tall, 93 mm wide, 212 mm deep;
There are 29 parts for FFF/FDM version, 14 parts for DLP/SLA version and 3 parts for each SLS versions.
STL files are already available for download in “Source files” tab for (FDM/FFF 2.0), (DLP/SLA 1.0), (SLS 1:72), (SLS 1:96).
