    My daughter recently discovered Voltron much to my glee. She has to have everything Voltron. I originally wanted to pep her a Voltron prop, but i found some Voltron 3d models online one which is transformable. the one i am printing right now is from Jurica at myminfactory. It is a really great model and free. I also got the one from cgtrader as well(paid) but it is awesome, but unfinished. I plan to print it, sand it and build a present box with some packages of model paint. I want to give it to my daughter unpainted so that she can paint it.

    Jurica's model

    finished the neck pieces. finished the first piece of the face but it broke on the support mount for the pin. i was able to repair it, but i probably will just reprint it at a lower print quality as i had 0.6mm i will bump it up to 0.1mm. i hope this fixes this or keeeps it from happening again. the lower jaw is on the bed cooking right meow.

    temp only not glued or final sanding

    got the head printed out, but i dont look forward to the clean up work after removing all of the print supports. i need to find some rods to install in the side of the head to keep together. going to give the printer a break for tonight.

    a lot of clean work is still needed inside the joints.
    just in case you are wondering, all the joints move and swivel. kind of hard to tell with static pics but they do.

    got the left shoulder done, glued the right shoulder together. relearned a lesson when sticking to item together. Make, make absolutely sure it is aligned. i was able to salvage the right shoulder and re-glue it. now, decision time. print the rest of the small parts together or separately? maybe in sections.

    started on the sanding, right shoulder only. i should printed at a thicker wall. too late

    Voltron black lion is starting to take shape. glued the shoulder, printed out the leg joints and the right leg. started the primary sanding pass with fine emery cloth. the left leg is on the printer(7 hr print). after that will be all of the rods.

    once i get the black lion completed, should i print the arms or the legs?


    also any gundam fans or mecha fans. i am working on setting up the gundam exia to have joints and 3d print.
    trying to figure out the knee, elbow and ankle.

    When you are done we should compare scale (I have the original toy). I'm betting yours will be bigger.

    i only wish i still had all of my toys from my child hood, not for the monetary value. i could then give them to my daughters to play with them. next best thing is to make the toys for them and hope that they will like them more.

    Lieutenant Jaku this thing is probably a good 18 inches tall

    You are welcome and thank you. good luck on your voltron build.

    here is the update on volts.

    swUhMHo.jpg

    QQmFBNz.jpg

    and with that it is semi complete. my daughter doesnt want to paint it, she wants it as is. oh well. as far as a stand or chair havent designed one yet.

    next on the printer is the paladin bayard. then the helmet which both are readily available online. i am working on the paladin armor for 3d print which i am modeling myself. i havent gotten to the point to where i can show off progress picks yet as i keep restarting the chest. maybe i should start with the arms and legs just to get further along. good luck aon all your builds, peps and prints.

    i think voltron has been watching deadpool 2

    her is some progress pics on the bayard. had a delay due to the 1 month old hot end clapping out on me, had to field repair the old one. it works.

    stay frosty and good luck on all your builds, peps and prints. check your glue to make sure its still good, my crazy glue tube was really old and it would not stick my fingers
    together much less me parts me laddy.

    also my gamer tag on xbone is clownpuncher077 if anyone one wants to play destiny.

    ok so i might have gotten way ahead with not enough pics. also noticed that i have some z hop on my print, which means i need to perform some maintenance on my printer. a thorough cleaning and lubing, realign and level the bed, tighten screws down. mjy daughter wanted me to finish painting it anyways instead of printing a whole new one after the maintenance. it looks good but not great. is it a prop for an 8 year on halo-ween, yup it sure is and it is probably going to get beat up. also going to add a heavy layer of glow in the dark neutral paint to the blue sections.

    k0cQLSX.jpg
    the z hop is not noticeable before paint

    here you can really see the z hop

    2ZPwWnQ.jpg
    also here is the head band, dont laugh my daughter painted it
    and i am proud of it.

    Rz0YD7R.jpg

    my daughter prefers to just have the bayard and the paladin jacket verses the armor. i probably will still model and make it, but at least i dont have a tight schedule. going to model the other
    bayard weapon attachments. good luck on all your build, peps, and prints. will update soon.
