ABOUT THIS 3D MODEL

REX is a Metal Gear prototype that was designed as a nuclear-capable bipedal tank reinforced with near-impenetrable compound armour. The all-terrain battle mecha comes from the Metal Gear series of action stealth video games by the legendary Hideo Kojima.

Metal Gear Rex model for 3D printing was brought to you by our contributing 3D artist who has been enthusiastic about the unusual bipedal tank and the Metal Gear franchise on the whole for quite a while now. The bulky 3D printing walking battle tank is heavily armed with rotary cannons, anti-tank missiles, a free-electron laser cannon, and a powerful magnetic rail gun. Inside the cockpit of the mecha defence machine, you will also find a miniature of its pilot, the Big Boss, who together with the REX will make for an impressive addition to any Metal Gear display!

ADAPTATION FOR 3D PRINTING

Metal Gear REX for 3D printing is an active assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took the Gambody team 45 hours in total. 

For you to receive the cleanest 3D printing result possible and to minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support the bipedal tank model was divided into many assembly parts, and special mechanisms were introduced into all model’s movable elements to give you an opportunity to display REX in a variety of positions and scenes.

All assembly parts are provided in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out in order to ensure the smoothness of the details’ surfaces after printing and that the 3D printing beginners won't face difficulties when placing the parts on a build plate. When downloading any model's file you will also receive "Assembly Manual" for FFF/FDM 1.0 and DLP/SLA/SLS 1.0 versions in PDF format. We highly recommend that you get acquainted with the “Assembly video” and "Assembly Manual" before getting down to the Metal Gear REX model.

The model 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 approximate height of the Metal Gear REX which is 13000 mm. The 3D printing model's chosen scale is 1:32 for the FFF/FDM version and 1:64 for the DLP/SLA/SLS version.

Below you can find printing recommendations for CuraSimplify3D and Slic3r software.

Cura printing recommendations:

These are basic settings that were tested in Cura 4.8.0 slicer. 

The test models were printed on Ultimaker 2, Creality Ender 3, Creality CR-10S Pro V2, Anycubic I3 Mega, Anycubic I3 MegaS 3D printers with PLA and PETG filaments.

Disclaimer: The following printing settings are a recommendation, not an obligation. The parameters can vary depending on the peculiarities of your 3D printer, the material you use and especially the particular assembly part at hand. Each part that any model comprises often needs preliminary review and you are free to tweak the settings the way you find suitable.

Note:
- You can scale up the model (downscaling is not recommended!);
- All connectors should be printed at 100% Infill;
- For all parts of locks (“ge_lock” in “Source files”) you need to change "Brim" type to "Skirt" in Build Plate Adhesion section.
