Picture of Concrete Goddess Hylia

I love the Legend of Zelda series. To date, my favorite is Breath of the Wild. One of my favorite parts of the game was the Goddess Hylia statues. They all looked so adorable, round, and huggable. So much so that I wanted one for my front yard.

I didn't just want to 3d print one and paint it to look like stone... I really wanted to make it out of stone. Concrete to be exact. This meant I had to learn a bunch of new skills like mold making, plaster casting, and concrete mixing to make something adorable for my home :)

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

**Fair warning. This was very complicated and I learned as I went. I am by no means an expert in any of these processes. If you have better ways to do ANY OF THIS, I would love some tips!**


VIDEO ON OUR BUILD PROCESS WILL BE PUT IN HERE SHORTLY.

On Thingiverse, I found the model I wanted to print of the Goddess

  1. Within Cura, set up the print so she is about 12" high x 10" wide x 7 deep with a 10% INFILL.
  2. Using Octoprint, send the files to the CR-10.
    • To set up octoprint- we followed this instructable
    • The print took 45 hours and 13 minutes
  3. The printed was loaded with PET-G Filament from Hatchbox which we keep in a dry box at all times.
