    Default Bio Walker Mech, Booleens and 3D printing

    Hey all,

    This is my first post here, I wanted to share my latest work, its a model of a mech walker that I designed and then 3D printed. I relied heavily on the Live Booleen features of zbrush to model the hard surface detail and I found the IMM Booleen brush essential in adding nice little greeble details













    My biggest influence in designing this robot is from the work of Yoji Shinkawa on Metal Gear Solid 4. I liked the idea of blending organic legs/limbs with a mechanical body, and this is my take on the concept. You can see below I like to sketch out my ideas before starting a sculpt, this gives me something to work towards and ultimately improve as the zbrush sculpt progresses.




















    I do a lot of 3D printing as a hobby, so I wanted to see what level of detail I could achieve with my Ultimaker 2 by printing this model out. While I'm pleased with the results right now, I can see myself printing this model again in future, hopefully on something like a Form2 to get maximum detail.



    Hope you all enjoyed seeing this work, I'm at my image limit for the first part of the post, I have more images if anyone wants to see more.

    Thanks Kiarash! much appreciated!


    I thought I would share the rest of the photos of the 3D print and some more renders, just in case anyone was interested. Hope you all like them!


    This is all the parts that were printed to be assembled into the model. I used Live Booleens and the decimation master to cut up and optimize each part for printing

    views of the finished model. I still have not cleaned up seamlines etc, it was more of an exercise to see how clean I could get a concept model off the printer without spending weeks of cleanup on it.
    Cutting into multiple parts gave me cleaner print quality, but the trade off was the large seamlines between the parts. This is the downside to FDM printing!







    to finish up here are some more renders showing other parts of the model.

    Impressive work, thanks for sharing the details and process!
    I always love seeing how these kind of things make the transition from digital to physical.

    The Form2 does give great results, and this detailed mesh would certainly take advantage of that - if you hadn't heard of the AnyCubic Photon, take a look - very nearly the same print quality as the Form2, but 20% of the price... I haven't used one myself but the reviews are very convincing.
