Cosplay Nomad Pistol Part 1: Scaling and Printing

A month or 2 ago one of the Infinity: The Game community contacted me say he was planning on using my 28mm scale weapon files that I make for tabletop conversions to make him self a Cosplay variant of the weapon and I was intrigued.

I decided to give it a try myself and picked the recently released Nomad Pistol to try, it’s my favourite pistol so far and I wanted to start small.

I took some measurements from the file and my hand and initially settled on scaling the file to 50x the 28mm file. To test the size I cut the file in half and printed a few layers from the middle of it.

This turned out to be huge and needed shrinking again. 75% of the first print (so 3750% for the original file), printed another 2 layer slice and this was a much better size. Also fit on the build plate in one piece.

After settling on the size I took the file into Microsoft 3d builder to slice it in half and add holes for pieces of filament to align the halves afterwards. I then used Cura to slice the files ready to print. Using the Adaptive Layers feature in Cura I ended up with a layer height between 0.12mm and 0.28mm depending on the angle of the part.

Printed in 3dPrintz Blue Grey PLA on my Ender 5 Plus.

And then assembled using 20mm pieces of filament as pins and clamped until set.

And here it is ready for sanding.

Part 2: Sanding and Prepping for paint coming soon.
