ABOUT THIS 3D MODEL

Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim is an active Jaeger tasked with defending the coastline of Alaska. Being built on Kodiak Island, the Jaeger participated in the first mission on 17 October 2017. It then had subsequently participated in numerous combats against the Kaiju. The heavy combat machine is operated by two pilots. It is equipped with S-11 Pulse Launcher which fires a black matter that tends to disrupt the molecular structure of Kaiju biology.

The new, updated version of Gipsy Danger will definitely get your praise! The model is presented in new scales, 1:250 in FFF/FDM and 1:500 in DLP/SLA. The better, high-poly design of Gipsy Danger ensures very detailed, intricate printing results. The hollowed parts of the model give the option to illuminate the Jeager using LED lights. Another stunning detail is the chain swords, which indeed make the mobile weapon so “danger”. The articulation of the new 2.0 version is provided by new, more secure, and durable joints. Be the first to enjoy the Gipsy Danger at completely higher level!

ADAPTATION FOR 3D PRINTING

Gipsy Danger for 3D printing is a fully active assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took the Gambody team 51 hours in total.

For you to receive the cleanest 3D printing result possible, minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support, and make use of the active elements designed by Gambody Engineers, the Jaeger was divided into convenient assembly parts.

All assembly parts in the FFF/FDM 2.0 version 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 2.0 and DLP/SLA 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 Gipsy Danger 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 length of the Gipsy Danger which is 79 250 mm. The 3D printing model’s chosen scales are 1:250 for the FFF/FDM version and 1:500 for the DLP/SLA version.

Below you can find printing recommendations for Cura, Simplify3D, Slic3r and PrusaSlicer 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.

Slic3r Printing Recommendations

These basic 3D printing settings recommendations for beginners were tested in Slic3r 1.3.0 software. Test models were printed on Ultimaker 2, Creality Ender 3, Creality Cr-10S pro v2, Anycubic I3 Mega, Anycubic I3 MegaS, Anycubic Vyper with PLA and PetG filaments. 


Note:

- You can upscale your 3D printing models. Downscaling is not recommended - it can make smaller parts of the model unprintable, distort the model’s level of detail and result in assembly issues. 

- All connectors should be printed at 100% Infill.

- When printing Lock connectors, we recommend setting the “Brim width” parameter to 0 in the "Skirt and Brim" print settings. In that way, the Locks will be 3D printed with a Skirt only.

Adjusting them will help you work out the optimal parameters for the best quality for your print. As for the First layer, you can set it to 150% of the diameter of your nozzle for better adhesion to the build plate (for a nozzle with a diameter of 0.4 mm, the First layer extrusion width can be from 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm)

Speed

Speed for print moves

(We recommend that you try printing with the parameters listed below and then adjust the print speed until the printing quality is optimal for you)

Perimeters: 20 mm/s

Small perimeters: 20 mm/s

External perimeters: 20 mm/s

Infill: 50 mm/s

Solid infill: 30 mm/s

Top solid infill: 20 mm/s

Support material: 50 mm/s

Support material interface: 20 mm/s

Bridges: 20 mm/s

Gap fill: 20 mm/s

Ironing: 15 mm/s

 

Speed for non-print moves

Travel: 100 mm/s

 

Modifiers

First layer speed: 10 mm/s

 

Acceleration control (Settings for advanced users, change these parameters only if you have sufficient 3D printing expertise)

Perimeters: 400 mm/s2

Infill: 400 mm/s2

Bridge: 400 mm/s2

First layer: 400 mm/s2

Default: 400 mm/s2

 

Auto speed (advanced)

Max print speed: 100 mm/s

Max volumetric speed: 0 mm3/s

 

Multiple Extruders

These settings only work for 3D printers with multiple extruders (not recommended for beginners)

 

Advanced

Extrusion width 

 

You can try setting all parameters in this section, except the First layer, to values between 0.75% of your nozzle diameter and 1.25% of your nozzle diameter. Adjusting them will help you work out the optimal parameters for the best quality for your print. As for the First layer, you can set it to 150% of the diameter of your nozzle for better adhesion to the build plate (for a nozzle with a diameter of 0.4 mm, the First layer extrusion width can be from 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm)
