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.
Version 1 and Version 2 are the files for Raven BattleMech 3D model 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.
Meet Raven! Balance in all things…
BattleMech, which has nice speed, good weapons and excellent character in combat.
It first debuted in 3048 after the end of the Third Succession War and was not just one of the first truly original 'Mech designs produced in centuries, but also represented humanity's refusal to slide back technologically. The Capellans build an entirely new 'Mech around the electronics, creating the first prototype of Raven.

The weapon for Raven BattleMech was created by two variants of the robot, such as RVN-3L and RVN-H.
Moreover, all limbs are movable such as: legs, weapons and torso rotating 360 °. The model was made Hard Surface and after purchase you will like it! Using technique of creating “Polygonal Modeling” was applied a lot of work for make sure that you will enjoy quality of this model. The Raven flew through testing, modernization and time and come to Gambody Marketplace. Now it’s available for purchase!
In the FDM version, Raven has increased legs mobility, which allows to be in different poses and of course in different surfaces.
The SLS version is made for saving material and max ease of printing.
All STL files for 3D printing have been checked for errors and corrected in Netfabb.
Note: Before starting 3D printing the model, read the Printing Details for CURA 2.7.0. software.
Based on the scale of the MWO tables and a pilot proportions of 2m tall.
In the game it size is 11 meters with armament and a little higher with antennas.
11640/60 = 194 mm(7.63 in.) tall - with antennas.
11000/60 = 183 mm(7.2 in.) tall - without antennas.
11640/100 ≈ 122 mm(4.8 in.) tall - SLS version.
There are 25 parts for FDM version and 6 part for SLS.
All limbs and weapon in FDM version are movable!
All parts of the joints should be printed at 100% infill.
- Is 1:60 scale and after being printed will stand 194 mm tall, 112 mm wide, 140 mm deep;
- Is designed to save almost all movable elements that prototype has;
- Has removable hinges that should be printed at 100% infill to make them solid.
- Is 1:100 scale and will stand 122 mm tall, 75 mm wide, 88.2 mm deep.
- Has as few details as possible to keep printing costs down.

On 27.10.2017 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 30.03.2018 new version of Connectors have been added.
Great upgrade that have been added which will make the mount more durable and at the same time preserve the mobility of the model. For this update, some parts of the Raven MWO were reworked.
Here is a list of files that have been added and changed:
2. 2_foot_connector_V2_x2 (need to print twice)
5. 5_foot_connector_V2_x2 (need to print twice)
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 with "V2" tag.

This model was tested in Cura 3.2.1 and printed on an Ultimaker 2 in PLA material.
- For new parts of Connectors V2 you need to change "Brim" type to "Skirt" in Build Plate Adhesion section.
- 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.
