Strongly inspired by Armorcast oop resincast version
Here is my attempt to reproduced a great gargant, inspired by the original version in EPIC, and by the huge resin version by Armorcast.
It does not pretend to be an exact copy, it is a bit smaller than the original, but I tryed to be as similar as possible, considering my own taste and capacity, and 3D printing technology.
Most of the parts are mobile, you can place them as you like, you can remove or change wheapons, you can place arms on your favorite size. To allow this, do not glues parts, and use this specifique part (that can be replace by a smal bawl and a spring) to stick it in place and allow movement:
Please note this is still work in progress, I will post parts as soon as they become available. I need to draw the banner and some extra guns, and maybe a mechanical sword (alternative wheapon). I will upgrade both pictures and STL.
An excel files makes you able to calculate the final cost of this print, regarding choosen filament.
At the end of the project, I will add a drawing explaining the mounting. And of course some picture of my comleted and painted Gargant!
I will be dellighted if some makers print it and send me picture. Can't wait to see your versions!
The making of the Stompa is available here (french forum):
Do not hesitate to tell me if you see some mistake or if you get trouble during print.

I use as less support as possible, to reduce post treatment, by sometime you juste can't avoid it... It's up to you!

Legend! Thank you kindly sir!
Back shelf uploaded!
Now I need to finish the paint job and draw and print the banners, and I will be up to the next project!
It was myself that Patrick printed for. It's awesome!!! Really looking forward to the balcony being uploaded. Thank you so much for sharing, it's genius!
Can't wait to see your print!
The back shelf will be uplaod this week, and I will add some picture of my work in progress paint job on the first prototype (missing the claw and the banners)
I just finished printing one of these off for a friend, A nice mix of resin and filament. I'll leave him the joy of posting the pictures.
I could not find the back shelf though did you upload it?
You can find some pics of the back shelf here:
Nice work @rant-in-an-winters !!

I will correct this as soon as possible!!
- Printed on:
- creatility cr 7
- Brilliant print.
- Would love to see the back shelf at some point, but otherwise brilliant
Sorry @RoguestOrk for my late answer.
For hollowed parts, I usually try not to use support, which make surface harder to get clean.
On some parts, llike the head, I had no toher choice thant to use it.
But on main parts, especially the body, I use it as less as possible.
Hangouts are designed to be printed without support.
But of course feel free to use it if you fell it ;-) The print will be longer, that's all.
For the ball and sockets parts, it's Ø6mm, 7mm lenght.
But you can replace it by a single spring + a tiny metal or plastique ball (Ø5mm).
Here is where we found the one I use on my gargant:
And please share pictures of yours!
Uz a mad meK! Fanks for dis!
nevermind, i figured out my print orientation! Everything turned out pretty good! Question about the ball and sockets, do you remember what size you used for them? also any ebay or amazon seller that sells them? thanks
Hello! First off, AMAZING JOB!! This is such a great design, a perfect recreation of huge resin great gargant; one that i've seen in person at a convention some years ago! It's a model i've been very much waiting for!
However, i've been having trouble printing parts of the gargant; could you give more detailed instructions on how to print/orient the base of the gargant? I find it strange the inside of the base of the gargant is hollowed out, instead of being filled in. This gives me a lot of trouble as I do not know if I need to add supports or not. I'd love to make this model, but more instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
