Description

The Legend of Zelda - Map of Hyrule, from the NES version of Zelda.

Note: this is a model that has been abandoned by its creator, DarkApollo on Thingiverse. Its original URL was https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2138498 though because it is a deadlink it cannot be referenced as a remix with proper attribution. The original had the same CC/BY/NC Creative Commons license so I passed that along.

 

Modifications and Updates to the original:

  • 3MF build plates arranged specifically to allow printing with a single AMS, using 4-colors at a time. See more about this below.
  • The entire map has been colorized in Bambu Studio
  • Custom direct painting in Bambu Studio to ensure no color leak-thru and best presentation (this took weeks)
  • Numerous CAD replacements and repairs for too-delicate-to-print elements. (DO NOT ‘SPLIT TO OBJECTS’ IT WILL RUIN THE MODEL!)
  • Each ‘room’ of the overworld map has been separated by 0.1mm to allow individual printing.
  • Settings tuned for fastest possible print while maintaining detail of every element. This took a LOT of trial and error It is extremely important to use the .3MF as-is to achieve the same results as the photos, setting the layer height to more fine quality results in too-small elements falling off the print and spaghetti-fying.
  • Frame in Print Profiles.
     

How to print:

  1. HIGHLY recommended to use the Textured PEI plate for this print, it allows release of the parts after letting them sit for a few minutes very easiliy. The Smooth PEI plate and cool plates tended to stick when removing, and gluestick makes a mess with items this small.
  2. Each plate's prime-tower preview shows the filament colors you'll need per print
  3. Load up the first 4-colors, and then slice and print, continue for each plate.
  4. Print the PDF below on a regular color printer - to use as a template to align the parts,
    1. Caution against gluing the parts directly to this page: you'll want to wait until you have everything printed first.
  5. Take photos and post them here!

Colors Used:

  • PolyMaker PolyTerra PLA - Sandstone (gives a nice sandy appearance but any beige will do)
  • Inland PLA+ - White (this opaque white PLA, also known as a ‘cold white’ blocks colors from bleeding through)
  • Bambu PLA Basic - Blue
  • Bambu PLA Matte - Ash Gray
  • Bambu PLA Basic - Bambu Green
  • Bambu PLA Matte - Black
  • Bambu PLA Basic - Brown

Though 7 colors are used, you only need a single AMS unit to print 4 of them at a time per build-plate.

 

Frame:

 

Display Case: 

To fit inside of this display case: https://a.co/d/3qGe2rY, there is an additional print profile labeled ‘angled’. It sits at 20-degrees tilted, and has legs to prop it up that fit in holes in the 4 corners. The additional flat piece is to glue on the bottom to keep it flat, or else it would split in half on it's own weight.

 

FAQs:

  • What is that pattern on the top of everything?
    • That is called the ‘Hilbert’ pattern, and can be changed in the Global settings to something else if prefered, this pattern appears more ‘random’ at this scale adding to more of a ‘rough’ look for the water, trees, terrain and ground.
  • What if I have more than 1 AMS? I can print all 7 colors
    • I'm very jealous, haha, a full color version is forthcoming as a print profile soon.
  • The little tree trunks look like fuzz while printing, what's going on?
    • During printing a lot of the under-sides of tree-lines look like they are failing, let them finish, they provide a proper amount of adhesion and elevation for the tree-lines. Some may fall off after printing, but they will be completely intact when done. Use CA glue to re-adhere them to the ‘floor’ if they fall off during assembly
  • There's whisps everywhere!
    • You must use DRY filament to print this, at least below 30%, otherwise stringing will occur. For minor stringing, you can use a butane torch (like a creme brulee torch) to very very quickly, swipe past and they usually disappear. But be careful, you might melt a tree or two! best to use fine-tipped tweezers to pluck any whisps.
  • Why does it look like there are 2 blues in the photos?
    • It's the same Bambu PLA basic, but I had to switch to the Textured PEI plate for easier release, interestingly, that blue shows up darker when printed on the textured plate vs the smooth. go figure.
  • Do I really need the Textured PEI plate?
    • If you use a smooth sheet, just have a fine edged scraper or spudger to gently lift each piece, because you'll be flexing them, it may destroy them while trying to remove. Let them cool at least 5-10 minutes if you use a smooth plate before attempting to remove.
  • I want this bigger/smaller!
    • Please do! and post your results for others as a print profile!
  • Where did this come from?
    • An individual that goes by DarkApollo on Thingiverse. Its original URL was https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2138498. If you find a proper attributed post by DarkApollo, please let me know so that they can be properly attributed as a remix here as well. My contributions are primarily to be able to print this on a Bambu printer with an AMS without all of the trial and error I had to go through.
  • How can I glue this together?
    • Use ‘CA’ glue, search amazon for ‘CA glue’ or ask your local hobby or craft shop.

This print turned out amazing at 200%! Fantastic job colorizing it. I decided to design my own frame made for a 200% scale map and will upload it as a remix of your model. Thanks again for making this available!

I increased the size of everything to 140%. i had issues with pieces coming loose and soaghettiing out but i think that was on me. once i switched the aux fan off and switched from textured playe to smooth high temp plate i had no issues printing. the small trees are really delicate so i had to re-print a few pieces that broke during assembly. I’m sure cleaning up and making it multi color took a ton of work so my hats off to the creator.

could you share pics of what happened? could help to know what went wrong and how it can be remedied.

I can’t share any pics as it’s already together and given to a friend, but I can tell you what happened. it’s like the pieces weren’t “adhered” together along the (grid lines) so when I got it off the build plate it just fell to individual pieces like a tiny puzzle. as for rating low? I don’t consider 3 stars low so if that’s considered low on Bambu my bad. and I can up it to 4

Replying to @jhadious :
Oh! Yes sorry for the confusion, no the parts are not adhered together in any way, in fact the reason this project works for people with only a single 4-color AMS is because the “tiles” are separated (it took a very long time to separate the CAD and fix hundreds of flaws) so that they can be disseminated to a plate based on a 4-color combination. The assembly guide PDF is the map so you can put the pieces where they go, but by no means was it ever meant to be printed as a single map or even chunks. They deliberately have a separation (it’s in the description, I think I should maybe bold that part) Thanks for the feedback, that will probably answer someone else’s question about it!

nice texture and everything but the connectors suck. broke right off, even using support for pla for the supports. should just be solid pegs.

that’s great feedback! I’m assuming you mean the connectors for the two halves of the frame? I think I should redo that assembly - thanks for the observations!

Well, well. This gives me a reason to order more filament. LOL

oh the order and number in the slicer doesn’t matter, those are just placeholders in Bambu Studio, when you slice and hit print the dialog box that appears shows swatches with choices for your filaments you actually have loaded in your AMS, you select the same colors from there. Bambu Studio is smart enough to know for example, that you probably want blue to blue etc. so you may not have to even do this, just look at the swatch icons in the dialog to make sure it looks right.
