Here’s how Witcher fans can 3D print their own medallion
Geralt’s locket is an important part of his image in The Witcher, and players can now 3D print their own locket in time for WitcherCon.
Cosplay as Geralt of The witcher can be hugely fun, but one of the hardest parts of designing it is its wolf medallion. Carving this by hand would be very difficult given its level of detail, and many just don’t have the skills or the time to do something like this. Even outside of the cosplay world, Geralt’s locket is a really cool symbol and a great way to show off his love for the game, so it’s only natural that gamers want one. Fortunately, now gamers have an easy way to get one as it can be 3D printed.
Geralt’s locket isn’t just for looks of course, as it serves a lot of practical purposes as well. For starters, the locket is a symbol of a witcher and also shows which school Geralt comes from. Additionally, it also has the useful effect of vibrating whenever creatures are nearby or magic is used. The witcher fans probably already know the importance of this medallion.

In order to 3D print the medallion, players can use the 3D model shared by the official Twitter account of The witcher. To celebrate the upcoming WitcherCon, an official medallion .obj file has been shared online. Players can download this file for free, and since it is official, they can be sure that every minute detail they would like to see in the locket is there. The hardest part is actually finding a 3D printer to print it with.
For gamers who have their own 3D printer, that’s not a problem, but there are still plenty who don’t have that luxury. While it can be tempting to give up at this point, it’s surprisingly easy to find a public 3D printer in most places. To get started, check with local libraries if there are any 3D printers available for public use. Another option is to find 3D printing services in the area, but keep in mind that these will likely charge extra for the service itself.
The witcher suggest the locket is about 5cm, as it should make a suitable size for most people. However, players who are a little taller or smaller than average may want to adjust this slightly. Obviously, the chain is not included in this 3D printing design, so players will have to provide it themselves. Act quickly and players could have their own medallion in time for WitcherCon.
