If you’re a Zelda fan and have your own 3D printer, you’ll be happy to hear that there are now a myriad of memorabilia pieces you can create at home.
“The Legend of Zelda” series provides some of the most memorable games you can play on a Nintendo system. If you’re hooked and now want to create your own memorabilia, you’ll be happy to hear that the internet is full of great props you can 3D print at home. In fact, All3DP even has a run-down of 25 of the best.
However, adding to that list is Thingiverse user Jbenedetto84, who created a 3D model of the Hyrule castle and its grounds. He took the castle from the Nintendo Switch game “Zelda: Breath of the Wild”.
If you’re not familiar with this game yet but are a Zelda fan, you should be familiar with the castle as Shigeru Miyamoto, the famous Japanese video game designer and producer, reuses themes, locations and props throughout every game.
Benedetto is a maker and engineer who has over ten Zelda designs available to download from Thingiverse. Why not create your own Lynel model or the Divine Beast Vah Rudania? However, of course, the castle is certainly one of the most impressive.
“The map in the game is so difficult to decipher that I may print this just to navigate in the game,” Benedetto jokingly adds about the model.
3D Printing Zelda Props to Help Navigate the Game
The Hyrule castle is created from the map view of the Breath of the Wild game. As a result, the 3D print is extremely detailed and could help anyone who prints it to navigate the difficult and complicate areas of the game.
Of his resulting designs, Benedetto also adds: “Interestingly enough when made solid it’s clear that the map view does not show any damage to the castle or grounds.”
In order to test out whether this model actually worked out, Imgur user TheCrypticOne007 3D printed the design. The resulting print is just as impressive as you might expect.
