    Wanna see more? Be sure to check out CollinMcCaf's Model Repository!

    Its finally done! Winter break gave me a bit of free time :)
    I've updated the file (01/04/19), this one is in two parts to reduce the amount of support material required. Be sure to sand these two mating surfaces really well before gluing them together, as there shouldn't be a visible split line for this model.

    Printing recommendations:
    **Unless you're using an SLA printer, you will not be able to print all the details**

    I would highly recommend a 0.2mm nozzle using a 0.1mm (or smaller) layer height.
    Anything larger than either of these and you will see a major loss of detail.

    My estimated time to print:
    Magazine: 3 hours
    Receiver: 19 hours
    Slide:13 hours

    My slicer settings:
    60mm/s perimeter
    100mm/s infill,
    150mm/s travel speed
    750mm/s^2 accelleration
    15% infill
    0.2mm nozzle
    0.1mm layer height

    Original post:
    Heres a very early look at the Halo 1 M6D Magnum. I've nearly figured out all the geometry, there are just a few more tweaks to do before I begin adding the details. If anyone has some good reference material, please send it my way. (Original H1, not anniversary graphics).

    Vesuro, wait no longer! Its finished!
    Ultimately I was unable to downsize the model from the 1.44 million polygons (every program I tried, crashed) so here it is in it's full 1,440,049 polygon glory.
    Here's the file and some renders (I used Fusion 360 this time)

    I'm going to post some better renders as soon as I can get Fusion to play nice again. I found a way better material :)

    Your renders will probably look better CollinMcCaf, but I just had to have a go at a quick render in Keyshot :) untitled.69.png untitled.71.png

    Those are still pretty good though, my computer is still chugging along. For whatever reason there isn't gpu based rendering in Fusion XD

    *Updated renders have been posted*

    This looks gorgeous! What kind of print settings does this require?
