3D printing was used to make a one of a kind model created for the world of Halo. Lots of detail was created on the CAD model which really gave the final 3D print a true sense of scale and realism. The model won the October 2011 Gizmodo UK 3D printing challenge and was printed by Nick Allen 3DPrintUK on an Objet printer.

Below: the final painted model stands at 160mm high and the arms are connected on a ball joint so they can be set at different positions. Games Workshops acrylic paints were used along with some dry brushing to give the robot an aged look.

Below: the photos show some of the stages to produce the final painted model. To get a good smooth surface finish a fair amount of sanding is required. A thick primer also helps to hide some of the “steps” created during the printing process.
