Wubalubadubdub! With a few more months left until Rick and Morty Season 3, why not fill the plumbus-shaped hole in your heart with some cool 3D printed Rick and Morty stuff? There’s a 3D printable Mr Meeseeks, a 3D printable portal gun, 3D printable Cromulons, and more!

1. 3D printed Mr Meeseeks

Meeseeks, for those unfamiliar with the Rick and Morty universe, are simple blue beings called into existence at the push of a button in order to carry out tasks. After a Meeseeks has carried out its task, it disappears. When Jerry asks his joyous, task-fulfilling Meeseeks to help take two strokes off his golf game, the impossibility of the task causes the creature—and a legion of other Meeseeks who have been called in for backup—to turn maniacal and violent. Keep your shoulders squared, Jerry!

YouTuber 3D Print Guy used Autodesk Maya to model Mr Meeseeks, before moving the file to ZBrush for fine detail sculpting and posing. Texture was added in MARI, after which the file was prepared for printing on Meshlabs. 3D Print Guy’s Mr Meeseeks models—of which there are both happy and homicidal versions—were printed through Shapeways, though users can also print the models on their own 3D printer after downloading the 3D printable Meeseeks (and the Meeseeks-generating box) for free. Just don’t ask them anything for anything complicated…

2. Rick's Portal Gun from Rick and Morty

Rick’s portal gun, able to create pathways to other dimensions at the pull of a trigger, always seems to get Morty into sticky situations. Makers can now make their own rapid journeys to Gazorpazorp, Planet Squanch, or Cronenberg World, because Thingiverse user 3D Central has designed a 3D printable portal gun (actually remixed from a design by Timothy Weber) that really looks the business.

The body of 3D printable portal gun has been split into two pieces, and can be printed with just a small amount of support. The cylinder is also hollow and combined into a single piece, and so prints out fairly easily. With four different filament colors, makers can simply print each part and assemble with super glue, or buy a 6” pre-assembled version—made with both ABS and PLA—for $33 through Etsy.

3. 3D printed Cromulons from the Signus-5 expanse

Cromulons, giant heads the size of planets, make real planets compete in an intergalactic talent show called Planet Music. Planets whose original compositions are not deemed catchy enough are destroyed with a laser cannon. To keep your songwriting juices flowing, you can now 3D print your own Cromulons, thanks to the hard work of Thingiverse user Stephen Christ. Show me what you got! I want to see what you got!

The designer of the 3D printed Cromulons used a P3Steel (modified Migbot) Prusa I3 to print his versions, and his recommended print settings are: no rafts, no supports, .2 mm resolution (.3 mm at base), and 10% infill. All non-painted parts were affixed with Gorilla super glue gel, with all painted parts glued with Loctite GO2 glue. Get printing, and get schwifty!

4. 3D printed Morty head

Hard to say exactly what you’d do with this print, but Thingiverse user Carina Gutierrez has kindly shared her 3D printable model of Morty’s perpetually confused head. Morty’s school performances suffer as the result of his adventures with his grandfather Rick, but your 3D printing skills can only be improved when trying out this one-part print.

Gutierrez used a Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D printer to make her Morty head, and recommends printing with rafts and supports, at a resolution of 0.13 mm, with low density infill.

5. Rick's Laser Gun from Rick and Morty

The second member of Rick’s arsenal on this list, and the second to be designed by 3D Central! This laser gun, used for blasting bureaucrats instead of opening portals, is actually a remix of a design by Jimmy Swizzles, and is still a work in progress. Depending on printer size, the laser gun can be downloaded either as a single piece or in two parts, and may need gluing or sanding for a perfect assembly.

As with the 3D printed portal gun, 3D Central has also made the laser gun available as a pre-printed model through Etsy. The ABS/PLA blaster is a little more expensive at $55, and measures around 11 inches in length. Just remember: if you only have happy memories of someone, blast them!

6. 3D printed Rick and Morty Plumbus

Everyone has a plumbus in their home, but how is it made? First they take the dingle bop and they smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then...repurposed for later batches. They take the dingle bop and they push it through the grumbo, where the fleeb is rubbed against it. It's important that the fleeb is rubbed, becasue the fleeb has all the fleeb juice. Then, a schlami shows up, and he rubs it...and spits on it. They cut the fleeb. There's several hizzards in the way. The blamfs rub against the chumbles, and the plubis and grumbo are shaved away. That leaves you with...a regular old plumbus.

Making a 3D printed plumbus is, fortunately, a different story altogether. 3D Print Guy’s second entry on this list is a masterpiece. Again, the maker used Maya, ZBrush, MARI, and Meshlab, ordering the final 3D printed plumbus through Shapeways. Heavy amounts of schleem were used.

Expect many more 3D printable Rick and Morty props to pop up as the countdown to Season 3 continues.
