Fan 3D Prints Hyrule Castle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Angry Lynels not included.

An artsy-craftsy Zelda fan 3D-printed a wee model of Hyrule Castle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, sprawling grounds and all. Great! If Calamity Ganon invades, you can just flick him away with your thumb and forefinger!

The fan, who goes by cryptid007 on Reddit, shared their masterpiece with the Nintendo Switch subreddit. "This was made using the 3d map ripped from the game," they write. "It was then printed at 0.1 mm layer height, with supports. Next time I will attempt it without the supports." Unfortunately, cryptid007 says the Castle's rooms and tunnels couldn't be included because the structure would become unstable.

Even if the castle was hollow, you'd need tweezers to retrieve the Hylian Shield.

cryptid007 admits they don't have the time or patience to paint their model, but other redditors seem keen on giving it a try. If you've got time, patience, and a steady hand, you can download and print the model yourself.

(Tell me I'm not the only one who saw cryptid007's images and immediately thought the castle was made of glazed pastry.)
