Star Wars Fandom – This is AMAZING!

Hello, fellow Star Wars friends! Just a quick post today about this image I stumbled upon on Reddit, and it blew my mind (it’s more than a year old, but I’ve only just seen it):

3D PRINTED DROIDEKA
Via Reddit

I MEAN GEEZ LOUISE… that’s insane! Someone 3D printed a Star Wars Droideka, lol. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen this image as I posted it there some hours ago. But it’s interesting how many people haven’t yet seen this image, including myself, lol.

I tried looking through the thread to see if the person that posted it had any further details about how long it took him to make it etc., but I couldn’t see anything I could use for this post. It was pretty much loads of people saying the same thing like “holy crap!” quite a lot. 🀣

Imagine 3D printing Anakin… OR LUKE!!! I wonder how hard it would be to do that? I don’t know a thing about 3D printing other than the printers used to do it are SERIOUSLY expensive to buy (which makes sense because I am sure that NASA used 3D printers to make some of the stuff they used in Space).

Honestly, if I was super-wealthy, I’d seriously consider buying one of these for sure. It’s just amazing what we can do with technology these days, am I right?

Let me know what you thought of today’s post, my friends; stay safe out there, and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post!

Thanks for your support!

  1. Hi Julie, Droid….deck….KAAAAH! Wow, imagine the size of the printer needed to build this – most home 3D printers have a printing surface (known as the “table”) of 300mm x 300mm maximum and print objects up to 250mm in height. There are some modifications you can make so the printer has a much longer surface that moves laterally under the printer nozzle to allow you to print larger elongated objects, but still this is a mammoth build.
    Now I have assembled my Jedi costume I think my next “big buy” will be a 3D printer as I have been badgered by folks wanting to know if I have printed any of my sabers. Seeing this and what people are posting for sale on ETSY etc has got me itching to try it. (Plus I have a few accessories I need for my costume I could print out for myself!).

  2. I just saw this myself a day or so ago. Wow! Droidekas happen to be my favorite battle droid from the prequels, they’re awesome. 3-D printers just blow my mind. I have no idea how they work, it’s like magic to me, lol.

    1. I’ve been wanting a a 3D printer since they were released to consumers. I think the very first were only made for industrial work but now you can buy them (well, if you have thousands of dollars to spare lol) they are so cool πŸ™‚
