Behemoth "The Gentle Giant" by Xykit

STORY

     This new GIANT 3D printable model is designed to be a "show-piece" and is meant to be printed large. The Brontosaurus, meaning "thunder-lizard" is an awesome dinosaur, a "gentle giant" if you will. It was humongous in size yet ate only plants. Job 40:15 describes a "Behemoth" creature and although some believe the description to be referencing a hippo or an elephant, I like to think that it was a dinosaur, possibly a Brontosaurus.

     The un-split variants of the model can be scaled to your desired size and used for tabletop games or display. It comes with both .3MF (multi-object models for FDM color printing) and .STL files, as well as four resin specific variants, see below.


Sample Prints

What are 3MF files?

     3MF files are a type of 3d model file that allows components to be kept as separate objects, making them easier to color the various pieces when using a multi-material/color printer.

General 3D Print Settings

How large does my printer need to be?

   The models for "The Behemoth" can be scaled to your desired size to fit your 3D printer. We recommend only scaling the full models, not the split versions, as scaling can mess up built-in tolerances for joints. At full-size it requires an Ender 3 or larger to print the two piece version of the behemoth and the riser base. The sample models were printed on a Bambu Labs X1 Carbon, with a build volume of 256mm sq. The smaller sample was printed at 70% scale in one piece, the larger sample was printed in two pieces. We recommend gluing the two piece model(s) together with super glue.

   To print a full size Behemoth in one piece you will need a large build volume of 300mm x 300mm x 400mm.

Recommended Print Settings

  This model is ideal for FDM printers because of it's large size. 

FDM Printers

  • Layer Height: .2mm (.12-.16 will give you more details)
  • Infill: 10-15%
  • Shells: 3
  • Supports: None

Resin Printers
   To print the Behemoth on a resin printer you will need a LARGE format model. We have created four resin friendly versions:

-Full Sized, Joined .STL (use this version to scale to your desired size)

-Full Size, 4 piece .STL 

-Full Size, 4 piece, hollowed .STL

-70% size, hollowed .STL

  • Layer Height: .05mm
  • Supports: None required for scaled, hollowed variant. Print directly on the build-plate. For the full size model, you can scale, hollow and support to your desired specs.

    But you don't have a 3D printer...

    Our licensed merchants will be able to offer the physical 3D printed models in their shops. Come see a list of merchants at xykit.com

    There are also places you can use a 3D printer to print stuff. Check with your local Library, Maker Space, School or College. Often you can just pay for the cost of filament.
