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

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

man, you really deserves the heaven, thank you so much :cry::cry::cry:
You are welcome and thank you. good luck on your voltron build.

here is the update on volts.

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.

Be sure to post your paladin build when you have enough progress on it! I've been binge watching Voltron and would love to see more Voltron stuff!
