by • February 13, 2016 • No Comments

It is February. There’s snow on the ground. And if you haven’t been living in a cave, totally cutoff of all human contact like a wampa, you most likely understand what the number one film in the land is… Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Naturally this leads one to ponder of a sure snowy ice planet, home to a secret rebel base… Hoth. And what comes to mind when one ponders of Hoth, additionalover the fact which Tauntauns smell worse on the within than they do on the outside? AT-ATs, otherwise understandn as Imperial Walkers, trekking across the frozen plain while shooting down snow speeders as they advance on the hapless rebels.

Fortunately, for those of us with Imperial Walkers marching in our heads, MyMiniFactory’s got you covered. Kirby Downey, who has made most cosplay and other talked about creations for MyMiniFactory and was profiled by 3DPrint.com back in December, has made a real kick-ass cutaway AT-AT version. The version is at 1:75 scale and is highly additional detailed and fully articulated.

As Downey states on his AT-AT version page, “This is latest version I have made. This additional detailed AT-AT of Star Wars has 15 points of articulation and features the interior of the machine. It consists of approximately 70 parts and can be assembled without glue. The head and body had a M5 metal threaded rod for both alignment and strength.”

Printing time for all the pieces is around 65 hours and uses 560g of filament. The version stands 300mm tall when assembled and there is really a bit of assembly involved, but for those with the time and dedication this looks to be a quite rewarding project. All the version files are may already laid out in the optimal orientation for printing and needs minimal assist to print. Downey says he printed the versions at 200 microns, but you can go lower if you desire higher additional detail. He printed the versions in Formfutura Light Grey PLA. Downey plans on designing removable side panels for the version so you can use it as a fish version or cross section.

If you can’t wait for Downey’s update and want a fish AT-AT version now, you can find a few versions on Thingiverse by user TheHivesMind. These are quite additional detailed versions, but I didn’t see any creates yet. On the other hand, if you seek a motorized Imperial Walker which in fact walks, which was previously covered here.

Downey’s AT-AT create is astounding. Most astounding. You can see additional images and the assembly video at a lower place. All images (including those above) are by Cedric Tosoni.
