This actually looks quite interesting for a change, good luck to those trying to win the 3D printer too. :)

Hello!
There`s a solution to that: we`ve removed the ZIP from mandatory fields. You can simply add the ZIP to the address field and this way it should work pretty well.

Wow really? That is why you Copyright Striked 3D Communities to remove the 3D models of Tanks so you can sell them yourself...

low blow... very low blow...

The time lapse printed tank in the video is lopsided, so looks wrong.

 

This sentence in the how it works is hilarious "Check that you already own a 3D printer with enough filament/material in stock"

Hey There!
Finally World of Tanks is talking about 3D printing 


Perhaps you might be interested in GrabCAD, a free library for 3D models where I frequently upload my 3D tanks. 
You can download the models for free, and print them as you like: in full or piece by piece, so you can have fun building them. :)
This is the link to my models: https://grabcad.com/gabriele.c-2/models 

In detail:

E-100: https://grabcad.com/library/panzerkampfwagen-e-100-1
IS-4: https://grabcad.com/library/js-4-heavy-tank-updated-1
T-70: https://grabcad.com/library/t-70-light-tank-1942-1
Jagdpanzer E-100: https://grabcad.com/library/jagdpanzer-e-100-1
M3 Lee: https://grabcad.com/library/medium-tank-m3-lee-1
EBR 75: https://grabcad.com/library/panhard-ebr-75-1
KV-2: https://grabcad.com/library/kv-2-model-1939-1
 

Some of the tanks have fully working suspensions...
...and I'm currently working on the EMIL 1951 so expect that to be uploaded on my GrabCAD's page (you can follow me if you like).

EMIL: https://grabcad.com/library/emil-swedish-heavy-tank-1

All the models are made exclusively by me, through hours of my time, with Rhinoceros3D. They are absolutely not ripped. Please respect the fair-use policy. 

All of my models are High-Poly so if you have a good printer you can really make the best out of it. 
(You heard that? So no copystriking plz ;)

Oh and by-the-way, if any of the WG staff wants to work a deal ya-know I'm sure we can work something out.



GetFoched, out. :hiding:

Yea.. 10 dollars for a 3d model you have to print your self. on a filament printer the quality will be terrible. You need a resin printer if you want something decent, and even then it's bad idea since resin is not cheap, nor safe to work with if you got zero clue how to work with resins. And you can buy a Tamiya Tiger 1/35 scale model for 20 bucks on sale, that is actually injection molded and high quality. 

 

But hey, I'll bet it will sell quite well.

Tracks look all wrong on the Tiger model.

Yes, Wargaming is acting like Disney with Star Wars, playing bully to remove all designs, even not related to push their rip off. I really hope people boycott this and use all the freely available designs. 

 

On the top I totally agree, 10 bucks, and printing with FDM will give you quite an average quality, you better buy a molded model in a shop for the same price.

 

And for the neerdy ones, if you search a little, there are tools to extract 3D designs from almost any game you like, but that's probably against copyright...
