The notable fire drake of the Lonely Mountain or the last great dragon to exist is an essential part of any Middle-earth universe fan’s 3D printed collection. When choosing the setting to depict his Smaug the Golden figurine in, the author of the dragon for 3D printing most likely was drawing inspiration from the original illustration provided by J.R.R. Tolkien titled “Conversation with Smaug”. The dragon is pictured sprawled on the wealth of the inestimable hoard in the depth of his mountain lair. The Hobbit film trilogy, without doubt, did greatly facilitate the 3D artist’s creative process but nevertheless, the figurine's sculpting took its author 125 hours in total. One can suppose that the Smaug 3D printing figurine shows the beast a mere seconds after being awakened from his slumber by the group of curious Dwarves who had the audacity to claim the ancient treasure from the dragon. Smaug the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities, as Bilbo once addressed the dragon, turned out to be much larger than the Dwarves had expected and just as greedy as one may assume. The way the Smaug for 3D printing is towering above his great treasures proves that he has no intention to let his guard down - the Lonely Mountain’s wealth belongs solely to its rightful possessor, the King under the Mountain. 


Smaug the Golden 3D printing figurine is a static assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took Gambody team 46 hours in total. The model’s cutting was chosen by our team to minimise the amount of filament needed for generated support and some of the parts were hollowed out for you to save the resin. The figurine was divided into as many assembly parts as needed to fit even the smallest 3D printers' build plates and for you to nevertheless receive a large dragon after the assembly. The Smaug's head was split up for you to print the jaws preserving all the teeth's finest details. All the assembly parts are provided in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out so 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. All the parts have special connecting elements for you to assemble the figurine in the easiest way possible and there are locks provided to connect the details if you don’t want to glue the parts. It is especially convenient for those who are going to paint the model.

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 dragon's actual length that is 130000 mm. The 3D printing figurine's chosen scale is 1/100 for the FFF/FDM version and 1/200 for the DLP/SLA/SLS versions.


FFF/FDM version features:
- Contains 44 parts;
- A printed model is 252 mm tall, 400 mm wide, 420 mm deep;
- Assembly kit includes locks to connect the parts without glue. One lock 43_Ge_lock_10H(x74) needs to be printed 74 times. The second lock 44_Ge_lock_7S(x13)​ needs to be printed 13 times;
- Made with a platform to resemble the mountain of golden treasures;
- All parts are divided in such a way that you will print them with the smallest number of support structures.

DLP/SLA version features:
- Contains 13 parts;
- A printed model is 126 mm tall, 200 mm wide, 210 mm deep;
- Made with a platform to resemble the mountain of golden treasures;
- All parts are divided in such a way to fit the build plates and to ensure that support structures are generated where needed.

DLP/SLA Eco version features:
- Same as the DLP/SLA version, but contains parts hollowed out to save resin.

SLS version features:
- Same as DLP/SLA one but made as a solid figurine; 
- Contains 3 parts - a one-piece model and the figurine with the platform separated.


- STL files of Smaug the Golden 3D Figurine for 3D printing which consist of 73 parts;
- 4 versions of files for this model for FFF/FDM, DLP/SLA, DLP/SLA Eco and SLS;
- High-poly detailed figurine of Smaug the Golden;
- Detailed settings that we provide as a recommendation for Cura 3.5.1, Simplify3D and Slic3r for the best print;
- Full technical support from the Gambody Support Team.
