Groot 3D Print – 5 Best Curated Models

The Avengers get most of the attention in Marvel movies, but who doesn't love Groot? Here are five (+ 1 bonus) 3D printable Groot models to make you and your friends marvel at 3D printing.

Groot 3D Print Fan Favourite

Who knew that a tree-like humanoid could gather such a fan base? Since August of 2014, when Guardians of the Galaxy was released, the Groot has rightfully earned the love of Marvel fans. He’s strong, he’s gentle, he’s noble and he is definitely 3D printable.

No, a 3D printer can’t make a living Groot, but they can make very accurate representations of him. If you want to create an especially convincing Groot model, consider printing with wood filament. Though it is a PLA material with wood fibers and not a TRUE wooden filament (More on wood filament here), this material’s a great way to make a Groot who looks about to come to life and say, “I am GROOT!”

What is it? If there’s anything cooler than Groot, it’s a 3D printed Groot. Having been expertly modeled in Z-Brush, this Groot’s a blast to print and show off. At 100% scale, 0.2mm layer height, and 20% infill, this model uses about 60 grams of filament and takes approximately four hours to print. However, if you are short on material and/or time, cutting it to 0%  infill cuts time and filament use in half, while retaining ease of printing and quality of the finished model.

Who printed it? This model has been printed over 500 times with various machines, materials, and paint jobs.

What is it? You can’t help but smile back at this adorable baby Groot. However, cuteness isn’t the only perk of the model. This Groot is also a flower pot! Have fun smiling as you print and use this design. Keep in mind that at 100% scale, this is a large model. It will require about 15 hours of printing and almost 200 g of filament. If you don’t want to spend that kind of time or material, scaling down is no problem at all.

Who designed it? Tom Davis

Who printed it? The Groot flower pot is a well-known and appreciated design among the 3D printing community, having been printed many times on many different machines.

What is it? After Groot sacrificed himself for his friends, a new Groot was born from one of his recovered twigs. Tears are inevitable when Groot dies, but so are smiles as Baby Groot steals the show with its high level of detail and adorable proportions. When printing this model at full scale, expect about 15 hours of print time and an amazing Baby Groot.
