Description

Since I recently went to LEGOland, we had many fun minifigs / minifigures that we wanted to do something with. Since there were so many fun ones, it seemed a shame to put them in a drawer or box. I looked around for different displays to print but didn't love any, so I figured I would design my own!

 

There are actually 2 here. The same design, but one is meant to be sturdier than the other, though both can hold up the figures. The sturdier one should just not bend as much when putting the figures on. You can also print as many middle pieces as you want as they will fit in anywhere.

 

The design is made up of a left and right side, base plates with pegs (you need 7), a back piece, and a middle piece.

 

It can hold an indeteriminate amount because the pegs go all the way across and you can pack them in as much as you want or spread them out. You can also alternate them a bit to show them off better. They can also hold things like animals. The figures can sit or stand easily on here. Even looks like bleachers if you want them to sit!

 

Pieces need to be glued together. I used Gloop, but clear gorilla glue is also a favorite of mine. I used clamps to hold pieces in place while they are drying.

 

The order of gluing that I recommend is: Base peg piece to both sides on the top and bottom (see image). Glue in the middle piece (or pieces if you are doing more than one). Glue the rest of the base peg pieces. Glue on the back piece.

 

It is meant to be easy to print so while it is sturdy enough to hold the minifigs, I recommend holding the base from below when you push the figures on as shown in the 4th image. They will bow if you just push on them. Though, you can print more middle pieces for added support.

 

I can alter it to make it smaller if there is a desire for it. Just need to give me dimensions/rows that you want.

 

The sturdier version has thicker peg pieces that they stand on, includes a second middle piece (though you can print as many as you want for either version) and the sides were altered to fit the thicker peg pieces. 

 

You can find the tutorial talking about the design and assembly process on Instructables: https://www.instructables.com/member/Penolopy%20Bulnick/instructables/

echt coole Idee, Leider hatte ich bei der 2. Platte bzw. dem 2. Druck jeweils 2 Fehldrucke

Yeah, I started using the textured build plate and it has made a world of difference with prints sticking much better. I highly recommend them if you haven't tried them yet.

Yes and I also think, that my Filament isn‘t dry enough so my next print will be the dessicant holder for the ams

Nice simple design. Spent almost more time gluing (and waiting for it to set) the pieces together than it took to print. 🤣 My daughter loves it. She thinks I should let her buy more mini figures so she can fill it up 🤦🏻‍♂️

Worked well for printing. Tolerances could be improved to fix the LEGO figure stronger.

Would you say the fit is too loose? I was worried about having it too tight and then the breaking off when people removed the figs :P

Exactly it is a little bit too loose. could you increase the diameter by 0.1 or 0.2mm ?

Can you also make a profile for the A1 mini?

A1 mini for this design or the Brickheadz? I do not have any brickheadz to test but it looks like they require 6 by 6 studs for each?

A1 mini design for the brickheadz request. They indeed have base plates of 6x6 stud. I'm not sure what the optimal distance between each figure would be, hopefully you have the knowledge from your mini figure stand design 😊 thanks so much for your help

can this be printed on an A1 mini?

It looks like if you print everything individually diagonally you could. I could shorten the rows so they would fit all together on the build plate if you are interested. Looks like if I cut out 8 studs it will fit up and down.

This is a really cool idea, but how do I get the printer to do that? I'm kinda a dried out sponge when it comes to my new a1 mini.

I just kept rotating it until it looked like it would fit and it stopped giving me the error that it was sticking off the plate :)
