This Retro Mario figure was modeled from a Nintendo Wii U Amiibo Mario Figure. I really liked the look, so I designed a version that could be 3d printed.
Check out my process for designing this thing here
Take a look below for some additional information if you decide to print.
YOUR PRINTER SHOULD HAVE DECENT ACCURACY TO PRINT THIS. This model has a large number of tightly arranged parts with just enough gap to interlock. If your side walls are wavy or have a big "elephant foot" effect, parts might not fit or a tolerance stack up could produce bad results.
Superglue is needed to assemble
a hand file is nice to have for better fitting parts, but wasn't necessary for me
I plan to upload a video documenting the assembly step by step. I glued up the blue parts and attached the feet, then assembled the face area (make sure to attach ears before assembling the hair). Then I attached the head to the torso and finally added the hat and arms.
