Zombie Hand Walker
« on: September 28, 2021, 06:59:08 AM »
Since we extended the GB time frame, time to get another one done.
Being totally on the Zombie Theme, this time one of the protagonists.

Found this on Thingiverse, the whole concept of walking on the hands tweaked my interest


Now, as some of you know what the design looks like and what the earlier ABS printers can do as far as quality is very often lightyears apart.
This is the print, done in fine mode directly off the printer, but enough to work with as it mostly turned out ok

Quite a few bits where the .STL file did not produce what was on the brochure  ;D with ill defined features and some random print lines


Dremel time with a carving bit and hack away. I figure it is a Zombie so imperfections on the flesh are not that critical, plus it I was not too fussed about being super finished

Then it was PSR time.

More to follow

Some of the imperfections seem to add to it. Carry on!

And here I was thinking it would be something like this from the title:

Zombie implants, too!

If this is printed in ABS, you can use Acetone vapor to smooth it.

Should be fun! :-\

I expect it'll look fantastic when done, though! :smiley:


Looks big, what scale? ???

Did a bit of that, but tried a new setup and mediocre results. Not that fussed on this one. I have one being printed in resin, which should be much better.

Anyhoo, went with what I had and it is just ok for what it was.
I tried for a scraps of clothing around the upper torso area where the worst of the print glitches were. It'll do ::)


Maybe a teaser for another one if I get the mojo happening ;)
