3D printed Minecraft mobs are very popular among dedicated players. Any Minecraft fan would be happy to have one in their collection. On the other hand, their square-shaped look makes it easy to design and print. File sharing websites are full of free samples to download and try out.
To get the feel of the game we started playing Minecraft and printed out first mobs we came across. The scariest monster Creeper, by whose hand we died many times, is quite a hit in 3D printing community. It comes in various designs. We also found good beginner-friendly files for Skeleton Shooter, Spider, Ghast and Enderman. Click on picture to zoom
PLA filament comes in many colors for FDM desktop printers (extrusion process). It is also beginner-friendly and deals well with overhangs under low temperature. Our skeleton model required support. But not to worry, most of slicer software add support automatically. The easiest were Spider and Ghast as they could be printed in one go. Enderman’s file included several pieces. When printing multiple objects, make sure that bed leveling is right and each piece sticks well to the build plate.
