I made a 3D model of Rex a year or two ago. I didn't make it for 3D printing, I made it as a model to use in a fan film that I've been working on, but the program I made it in is a program for making 3D print models and I've used the program for 3D print models before, so it should be able to be printed out. Keep in mind that the models aren't incredibly detailed (I did most of the detailing as textures to save poly count) and it would need to be resized, but I can send the files to you if you'd like.

Yes I would be interested in the model you have. Thanks for offering it.

New to posting in the RPF, but a huge Disney and Star Wars geek. Haakesack's work has inspired me to start my own RX-24 build. I'm basing my model on a hybrid of the Star Wars Rebels version of the droid because it has cleaner lines that I think will 3D print much easier. I'm adding a smattering of the smaller details from Star Tours here and there as well - so it's a hybrid. Just starting on a head model at first, then I'll think about body design after I've got that in hand.

I've bashed together a pretty good model file using nothing but Tinkercad and have done a test print at 1/3 scale or so to see how things fit and work together before committing to all the plastic. I'm keeping the model as hollow as possible for the possibility of some future electronics. Have a look:

The supports on the visor lift arms gave up midway through the print, which seems to have botched a few of the travels (check out the cracked and warped mouth structure). But I'm overall happy with where the model is. With a few slight tweaks where I couldn't see collision in Tinkercad, I think I'm ready to order some more filament and start on the full sized beast.

Just for info's sake, I'm using a Monoprice MakerSelect v2 for printing.

I know that it has been a while, have you made any progress on Rex? I am still looking for some 3D files for the head. I think I can model the rest but the head is way out of my league.

Thanks

Are you able to share these 3d printing files? I've made a wall-e and want to try my favorite bot!
