Mechwarrior fan Valcrow has created an awesome 6" (152mm) tall 3D printed posable Atlas, watch the images below. It is composed of roughly 30 parts (excluding pegs) and most of the major joints are movable. It is printed in silver PLA on a desktop 3D printer. "The biggest challenge was keeping the integrity of the atlas design while making the joints operational in a physical model, coupled with the limitations of FDM printing." says Valcrow.

From the torso up, there's only 2 glued part, Valcrow says, most of parts are designed to snap together, including the side guns. The head was printed with layer thickness of 75 micron, and the rest 150 micron. "shines a bit differently.. kinda like hair." writes Valcrow.

nice model, but print quality of PLA is poor, personally I'll use ABS
