ABOUT THIS 3D FIGURINE

Meriadoc Brandybuck, known as Merry, is the character from the Middle-earth legendarium who participates in the Quest to destroy the One Ring, helps to defeat Witch-king of Angmar, and simply has fun together with his inseparable friend Pippin. We are delighted to welcome the cheerful and brave Master of Buckland to join our The Lord of the Rings selection! Being a true LotR fan, the author of the figurine kept his word and prepared a friendly hobbit for 3D printing to accompany Treebeard in its Last March of the Ents. Even more so! The 3D artist behind the Merry Brandybuck figurine reportedly spent circa 150 hours in order for the loyal hobbit to be featured in two scenarios at the least! Thus, the Meriadoc model for 3D printing can be displayed either standing still on a small decorative platform or sitting on top of Treebeard’s branches. The member of the Fellowship of the Ring is depicted with careful attention both to the peculiarities of hobbits’ appearance and their customary clothes. 3D printing Merry figurine is barefooted, his longish hairstyle is naturally curly and the look on his face is rather concerned. The latter is quite understandable - after all, Merry, his dear friend Pippin and the Shepherd of the Trees are on their way to fight the Orcs of Isengard! Just like most hobbits do, Meriadoc Brandybuck for 3D printing wears breeches, a waistcoat, a jacket, and a cloak with a large hood. The cloak is fastened with a brooch known as the Leave of Lorien which is the distinctive symbol worn by all members of the Fellowship of the Ring. The cheerful star of the LotR trilogy is a caring and resourceful hobbit who knows everything needed about the second breakfast! We can’t think of a more joyful addition to your J.R.R. Tolkien-inspired 3D printed collection!

ADAPTATION FOR 3D PRINTING

Merry Brandybuck figurine for 3D printing is a static assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took Gambody team 46 hours in total. For those customers who have already purchased the Treebeard figurine or are planning to do so, every version of the Merry Brandybuck model comes in two variants to choose from - an independent static figurine (marked “Stand” in the “Source files” tab) and a sitting Merry variant to place the hobbit on top of Treebeard’s twig (marked “Sit” in the “Source files”). In order to facilitate the future assembly of the diorama, the body in all “Sit” versions of the Merry Brandybuck model is carved specifically to fit the texture of the Treebeard’s branches. The anatomy of the Merry Brandybuck model was thoroughly reviewed during the moderation process for the hobbit (before he drank the Ent-draught) to be depicted harmoniously in both intended variants of the pose. The model’s cutting was chosen by our team to minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support and the “body” parts were hollowed out for you to save resin in the figurine’s DLP/SLA + Eco versions. In order to conceal the places where the assembly parts of the model must be connected, the figurine was cut along the contour of Merry’s clothes seams and his cloak was “taken off”. All the assembly parts come in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out in order to ensure the smoothness of the details’ surfaces after printing and so that the 3D printing beginners won't face difficulties when placing the parts on a build plate. 

The figurine is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers. All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

The model's scale was calculated from the actual height of Merry Brandybuck which is 1060 mm. The 3D printing figurine's chosen scale is 1/8 for the FFF/FDM version and 1/16 for the DLP/SLA/SLS versions.
