Some days you just see some things on the interwebz and you think to yourself "how even did they do that?" Reddit user cryptid007's 3D Printed Hyrule Castle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gave us one of those moments of awe when we saw it today.
This 3D printed wonder was made with assisted of a 3D map which was ripped from the very game itself. It was then printed at 0.1 mm layer height, with supports. cryptid007 did however think he could do better next time and try to do this without the supports.
While this all looks slightly edible at the moment, we'd imagine this would look rather impressive with a paint job. So far cryptid007 says he's spent 37 hours to get to this point, so we'll let him off for not painting it yet.
Let us know what you think about this 3D printed marvel with a comment below.

It looks fantastic!
I totally agree with "slightly edible".
Some people have way more time on their hands then I clearly do.
Now color it!
It looks decent but I'm not impressed. It's just a ripped model without any paint so it wouldn't have taken much effort, just a few adjustments.
Maybe they could try the Divine Beasts next and I might be impressed
Too good to be eaten.
As far as 3D print projects of Breath of the Wild are concerned, Adafruit Industries has thrown together some pretty cool ones, their guardian robot model being my favorite:
Am I the only one who doesn't get excited about all of this 3D printed garbage? I'm sorry, but most of this stuff looks like complete crap.
@8-Bit_Superman that's a good idea!
I read the title as the entirety of the game's map being made into a 3D model... Still, this is cool. Props to the maker
Please show us your rendition of the BOTW Castle that you have created that is better than this. We will wait right here until you post your pictures
@TDS_Computer I'm not knocking the design, smart guy, I'm knocking the crappy quality of the 3D printed object itself. People tend to ooh and ahh over this crap but in reality, the quality of the manufactured piece done with a consumer model 3D printer is horrible.
Nice, but probably could have been better.
@TDS_Computer that would be ultimate.
I took the liberty of making two of these with my University's 3D-print lab, however I did some touching up on the model (e.g. filling in the chunks of missing walls, putting in trees and gazebos, etc.) I'm finished painting my pre-Calamity model, and the ruined version of the castle is still a work in progress. The model is super awesome, and it's a great conversation piece!
