Dune – House Atreides Ornithopter – Kit

Dune - House Atreides Ornithopter - Kit 3d model

With the anticipation of the Dune sequel, I thought it’d be a fantastic opportunity to craft a unique gift for my friends.

This creation is inspired by the House Atreides Ornithopter, as depicted in Denis Villeneuve’s recent film adaptation.

Available in 256×256 to 120×120 (check details for 120×120) printing plate sizes.

Assembly Guide avalaible further down


The model can be displayed in either flight or landed modes.

The parts are designed to fit together with tight fit, eliminating the need for glue. However, given I tunned the fitting with the specific calibration of printer, minor adjustments with a dab of glue might be necessary for others.

Foldable Wings: Transition the wings between flight or landed positions. Be mindful that when fully folded, the weight of the wings could tip the model backward.
Landed configuration: This is the default configuration in the kit so you can display the model without anything else.

Flight configuration: For those who favor a flight display, you can swap out the ramp and front landing gear with the upgrade kit provided in the downloadable file. I recommend downloading the Stand I created for displaying the model as if it’s flying, which you can find below.

Recommended Printing Settings:

For optimal assembly, I strongly suggest the following settings, fine-tuned for this kit’s precision:

First layer height : 0.2 mm
Layer height : 0.08 mm
Wall loops : 4
Infill density : 100%

Kit options:

I designed the kit with printing bed size in mind so those with small printing bed won’t have to scale it down :

Standard Kit with Full-Length Wings:

Ideal for a 256×256 printing plate, this version boasts the ornithopter’s impressive wingspan.

For X and P series of Bambulap Printer you need for this kit to adjust the printer settings as indicated in the official Bambulab Wiki

Compact Kit with Short Wings:

For those preferring a smaller footprint, this edition offers abbreviated wings, suitable for a 256×256 printing plate.

Small bed Kit:

An adjusted option without wings for printers with a 180×180 printing plate.

Separate Wing Kits:

Choose either the full-scale or short wings to pair with the Miniature Kit for custom wing dimensions.

Individual Components:

Every part is also available separately for those looking to print without the kit aspect or specific replacements.

120×120 printing beds

for 120×120 you will need to print indivudual parts without the kit version, you will need to download specificaly those parts instead of those in the general indivudual parts component. Those parts fit diagonally in your plate


(yes I got a bit carried away by the fun of designing the kit versions :p)
