snifikino shared a tutorial to help you build an accurate 3D printed Dalek miniature from Doctor Who. There have been a bunch of excellent models shared previously, including Audrey2’s Accurate Dalek Model from Doctor Who featured here. This is a guide attempting to help those looking to complete the printing of all of the parts, including the gun stalks and accessories, along with suggestions for materials and colors that might improve your model.

One of the most fearsome enemy of The Doctor is the Dalek. Those creatures, whose sole purpose is to EXTERMINATE! can now be part of your collection.
Here’s how you can 3D print your own, very accurate Dalek.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
