3D Printing

  • I finished the model last week. It's taken a long time but I'm finally happy enough to try and print it.

    Check it out!

    PLA, 20% infill, 0.15 layer height, 3h 11m print time, 8.5m of filament used.

    Really impressed with the detailing as this is on the standard settings. I'm looking to scale the model up a bit and reduce the layer height which should improve the quality and detail!

    I'll start work on the martial weapon to go with it in the new year!

  • Yeah as you can see in the links Marty and Marv posted it is possible. As stated previously there is ways to rip the 3D models from GW directly however these aren't really made for printing.

    The software I use doesn't have the capabilities to easily model characters, which means using the method I have to produce the shield isn't really feasible to create characters.

  • Ok, so after much deliberation I've decided to continue the modelling and 3D printing with a martial weapon. It was suggested by a number of you that the Sephis Axe would pair nicely with the Crude Shield and so I've started modelling this! I would expect this to take me a lot less time than the Crude Shield so hopefully you'll see a finished product sooner. I'll post some pictures once I've modelled something worth showing.

  • Following because I too wish to 3d print some guild wars stuff, for cosplays & statues.


    I'm certain I could use some of my skills to make the player & creature models more printer friendly

    Interested to hear what your skills/experience is with modelling/3D printing! What software do you use? Any plans for future builds?

    I'm a game designer with 14 years of experience, and learned most of the field including modeling. I admit I have little experience with 3d printing but the programs I use are Blender, Maya, and Metaseq.


    My build ideas for GW1 stuff is to make a statue of all of my Guild Wars characters + pets+ minions + mini pets into 1 piece and some cosplay armor.

  • Reading the obsidian Elementist armor comment about the spikes, probably could remodel those

  • Sounds like you'd be much more versed in altering ripped models than myself.

    I haven't used any of the programmes you listed.

    It's be awesome to see your end result! Feel free to post it here!

  • First I gotta get my own 3d printer and I have to look into a digital painter so I don't have to paint them all by hand.


    But yeah when I got something to present I'll post them. BTW thank you for giving me the idea...wait I just thought of another one.


    I wonder if I could alter the model enough to make them poseable (I know I spelled that wrong.) sort of like an action figure.

  • Yeah, I still only have access to the work 3D Printer and a friends. I'd like to invest in one myself but I don't really have the space at the moment!


    I'm not sure how easy the models are to modify however from my 3D printing experience I know there are models that you can print with pivots etc. They can be printed as one part and the articulating sections just need to be broken free.

    Let me know if you have time to play around with ripped 3D models and how easy they are to modify using your software.

  • Sorry I neglected to mention it earlier but Blender & Metaseq are free modeling programs and Maya may have an educational version still that's free.


    Blender will always be my first recommendation.
