Warhammer 40k leman russ destroyer

Recommended Posts

I initially bought the Ultimaker2 because of its amazing quality prints but I have to say that the more I see pictures on this forum the more I am surprised at what it can do

Regarding this project:

GW decided to change the leman russ model and I dont really like the new tracks, they seem less detailed than the old one so i decided to make my own

The model will be a destroyer, and is a work in progress

It's designed to avoid support structures

the black model is actually the original destroyer from forgeworld that I use as a reference

Paint is just to see what potentially it could look like once finished,

I'll need to practice a bit more to make it presentable

thank you all for the comments


I'll put a few pictures on that other post once it's finished



I realised i forgot to add a few screenshots of the actual 3d model so i added them now.

The main hull overall size and shape are done.


The front plate is also finished and is ready to receive either the main gun or the demolisher option.

the base for it is only two layers thick( at 0.05) so it can be placed on top of the main hull.


The engine section is there but its hard to print because of the slope on several directions. trying to figure out how to print that

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
