Wow, it's been a year almost!

I've updated the lost in thread pictures onto the front page of the various incarnations and related art.



Probably going to wait and see what happens with clan mechs... but whatever it is it'll need to be challenging in some way different than the Jenner + atlas.

It's amazing work Val. I gotta catch up with you at some point. I finally hae cleared my plate enough that I might be able to work with Kiriage some more on a very belated OTHER project...... (sheesh, sorry this taking so long, IRL has been kicking my butt)

O.O *Blink* O.O

That's the best thing I've seen ever since PGI got the Stormcrow design right on the money. @u@

Too bad them 3D Printers are out of my current budget range. Would love to take a crack at making my own 'Battletech Action Figure Model Kits' just for kicks too. =u=

That's the best kind of ass kicking :) Whenever you're ready, there's no rush, I got super busy on my side as well all of a sudden.

It would be cool to see one in the draconis combine 3rd amphigean LAG ( light assault group) colors.
Nice work!

I didn't go but holy dead thread rise from the dead! Seriously though I'd buy 4 if PGI arranged something like that with all the other companies associated with BT.

A friend of mine just got a 3d printer and has offered to print me things, and first thing that came to mind was something like this. We're curious what exactly went into you making it posable, so we can do the same.

Awesome work!

It requires breaking up the parts into logical pieces and then cutting/fitting joints into them. I detail some of my build process here for the Jenner.

This breakdown shows how the balljoint on the leg is done:

What is that?? stop motion piece?

I recently worked on a CG/Stop motion pitch, it was an interesting mix indeed.

I had to bring this thread back once again. I would like to just say that I have no idea how in God's name you got that Atlas model ready to print. No idea. From a 3d printing standpoint, it's such a horribly designed model. Vertices and faces overlapping, holes everywhere, hidden geometry, etc. Each time I feel like I'm getting somewhere, I run into a handful of problems, and have to scrap all my work and start over.
I've tried working on it on 3 occasions now, and put probably close to 15-20 hours of frustrating time into modeling, but I can't seem to get it to work. I've tried modeling in Sketchup, 3D Studio, and Meshmixer, and each time, I get a few hours in, and everything falls apart for one reason or another. I would like to think of myself as an advanced level 3d modeler, but I'm about to the stage of tearing my hair out. Any tips you can give would be extremely appreciated!!!

Is it just me, or is Zorak hiding in that Atlas crotch?

It is unfortunately as bad as you describe. I cleaned it up in 3D studio, and it literally just takes patience and having a proper workflow so there is continuous progress. Viewing the model as a whole will just get you frustrated to no end, break it up into workable chunks.

Here's roughly what I did:
-Break it apart into manageable groups
-Combine all the pieces, like little box details.
-weld all verticies with a 0.001 tolerance so those floating faces don't cause problems.
-remove all extra faces.
-cap all the open objects.
-then move onto the next group

At the end, boolean everything together making sure you have a backup.

I'm not sure there is an 'easy' way around it. Some slicers are smarter and might be able to print interpenetrating objects, but at the minimum they usually need to be water tight.

There is a lot more steps if you want to make it jointed, but I assume you only want a standard printable one for now.

Lastly, don't start over when flustered.. you need to continuous progress doing anything monotonous like this. So finish groups. make sure it's good, then move onto the next. Before you know it you'll be done!

I would be very interested as well. Might be time for the OP to open an Etsy shop, he could quit is day job, that Atlas is high quality.

Wow, well done! Is there anyway to get these specs or aquire one. It would be very cool to paint and build as a model collector. It's quite impossible to find good size Battletech models. Any chance you will work on the venerable Timberwolf? I can only dream of adding something like that to my, collection. Any chance a starry eyed enthusiast could aquire one?
