3D model description

This model stands 13-16in tall. It was modeled closely to 1/6 scale.

Inspired from the Snowball Mech suit from the TV cartoon, Rick and Morty.

It has 14pts of Articulation and can be posed. Snowball is removable from Chassis.

This was designed from video stills and reference pictures from the cartoon with a creative and realistic thought process. Dozens of test prints and many many hours were dedicated to ensure all of the joints were with in tolerance to achieve the end result. Articulation.

The core chassis was modeled with Blender and Snowball was modeled entirely with ZBrush.

3D printing settings

Some Assembly Required!!

Print all parts as they are laid out in slicer.

Arm and Legs components must be printed twice. Mirrored for 'Arm_Hand', 'Arm_Shoulder' and 'Leg_Thigh'
Due to the nature of FDM printing various parts will need to be glued for strength purposes as the majority of the joints are snap-fit

I personally printed it with ABS, so some settings may differ.

General print parameters are:

0.4 nozzle
20-40% infill (Grid)
0.1 - 0.12 line height recommended for proper snap accuracy.

Infill per model: (recommended)

Chassis_Pack 5% (w/ custom parameters see below and supports)

Chassis_Pack_Seat @ 20%

Arm_Hand @ 10%

Fingers @ 100%

Thumb parts @ 100%

Arm_Shoulders @ 30% (recommend support)

Arm_Bone @ 20%

Helmet @ 20% w/supports

Leg_Foot @ 30%

Leg_Shin @ 40%

Leg_Knuckle @ 100%

Leg_Thigh @ 20%

Leg_Hip @ 40%

Snowball @ 5-10% w/supports

-- Specific Instruction --
For printing the Chassis, you will need to place with a custom support blocks (Cura) on the ball and slot joints for legs and arms with an infill settings of at least 60%.

I don't recommended to print the chassis @ 60% due to weight. Less is better it will be topheavy.

The dog was printed at 5% infill, 0.1 line-height.

Where glue is required center the parts as best as possible, I will be modifying the model for direct placement. When time avails.

Use support as desired, where needed, but I created it with minimal requirements.

Third party items will be required. You will need to 0.5-1mil plastic sheet for visor available at local hobby store or amazon.
2x 4" of 14ga wire.
