My latest Giant LEGO Build - Expert Builder / Technic Forklift Kit 850

winchymattwinchymatt UKMember Posts: 18
Here is my latest 3D printed giant Lego kit. At 5 x normal scale, 216 pieces, 500+ hours of print time and 19Kg its a bit of a beast! 

This kit was my first Lego Technic kit and probably got my mind interested in engineering from an early age :)

    Another monster build. Looking forward to the next episode behind the scenes. I really want a giant LEGO piece now!

    Am I the only one thinking how incredible a UCS MF would be at this scale? 

    Love the project by the way!

    Seriously impressive. I'd definitely be interested to know more about the practicalities of 3D printing such large elements, not to mention the cost....

    Keep 'em coming, @winchymatt - loving your work!

    So, what's the cost on something like that?

    Hi, I've just posted a new discussion with a link to my latest video which has details of cost and print time etc.

    Don't really want to sit through a video for the one piece of info I am interested in. No offense, and nothing personal. I don't generally watch many videos on-line, no matter what they are. Just more of a reader than a video watcher (:

    Thanks anyway.

    Wow. I didn’t realize you could 3D print flexible parts. Am I right that the tires are softer than the other pieces?

    Yes the tyres use a material called NinjaFlex and PolyFlex. Ninja is softer.
