3D printing–Make your own imperial forces AT-AT at home

empire-strikes-back AT-Ats

Whether you’re a fan of the all-terrain armored transports of AT-ATs from their first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back or you’re new to the Star Wars universe and your only contact is the damaged AT-AT turned Rey’s desert planet home in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can now build your own thanks to 3D printing technology.  Designer Kirby Downey has uploaded his own plans to build a fully-articulated 1:75 scale model.  And it definitely looks like the real thing.

As completed the model is about one foot tall.  All you need is a 3D printer, 560 grams of Formfutura light grey PLA filament, and about 65 hours to print the 70 component parts with minimal support required.  Although you can build it without glue, Downey uses glue in his YouTube video as well as a metal rod for more support.

The final piece has 15 points of articulation.  Check out Downey’s video of the build here:
