Sebitti Warrior is an original design created by Alexis Arroyo for an online contest but was not submitted. Thankfully, we get to enjoy and purchase his creation instead. Sebitti warrior 3D model is a mysterious fire demon that enjoyed torturing my FDM machines and pushing them to their limits. Keep reading for details and more pictures on the sebitti warrior 3D Print.
This Sebitti 3D model was released with four (4) different outfits which include: Armored, Damaged Armor, Lencery/Lingerie and Exposed (NSFW). Incredibly, each of those outfits were created with an FDM and Resin version. That’s eight (8) versions of Sebitti. Each version is purchasable separately or as a discounted bundle. Contact Alexis directly and/or check out CGTrader (link) for his current pricing. Alexis has created other models I have or want to purchase. Here are his social and art links (Facebook) (Artstation).
Sebitti Warrior 3D Model Breakdown
So far I have only printed the Armored FDM Sebitti model. There are significant differences between the version’s cuts, so mixing and matching outfits is not possible. This Fire Demon has quite a few pieces, here’s a quick overview of this outfit.
- Armored FDM Base – Detailed with a lot of separate weapons
- Lower Base (1) + Upper base (1) with a pile of skulls
- Six (6) separate weapons for insertion into upper base
- Armored FDM Body – Highly detailed with many small piece
- Feet (2); Shin Armor (2); Thighs (2); Torso (1); Belt (2); Skirt (2); Left Shoulder Armor; Right Shoulder Armor with Cloak; Right Arm with Hand; Ball of Flame; Left Arm; Left Hand and Upper Staff; Lower Staff; Hair; Head with Carved Eyes; Head with Rounded Eyes.
All of those pieces are just for one of the eight variations of this Sebitti Warrior model. Incredible! Some of the various outfits undoubtedly share some same parts, however each version has it’s own separate folder for a complete assembly. Additionally, the resin models have sharper and additional details. I’m sure I’ll print her again once I own a resin printer!!
NOTE: I combined the Torso and Arms in Meshmixer (link) for a cleaner joint free look. Unfortunately, this lead to two elbow support failures for three prints.
Sebitti Warrior STL Printing Goals
Every printing project is a little different. Often I am trying new profiles, machine modification or a complex model with many small parts. Sebitti Warrior is one such model. Even though she is better suited for resin printing, I was determined to push my FDM printing skills to their current limit. As usual, I have goals for each project. Here they are.
- Complete Print – Success!
- Print Model at 12 inch / 300 mm / 1:6 Scale = 10% of As-Modeled-Scale – Success!
- Layout parts for minimal sanding and post processing – Good result
- Share my insights, printer settings and inspire others to push past their current limits – Success?
As I stated, I’m constantly trying new settings, machines and materials. This is an older print, yet every success and failure leads to new learning opportunities. This print was the first time I had used my hand held rotary tool (Dremel) and wet sanding on my bare plastic figures. In the past I had limited myself to dry hand sanding to prepare for primer. Since this project, every new figure gets initially wet and/or rotary sanding prior to priming. (This step is mostly used to remove support scars and surface blobs).
For this FDM print of Sebitti Warrior, I used a few different rolls. I am considering keeping the main model orange with red hair as printed.The skirt, cloak and armor colors have not be finalized yet but I have a few ideas. If I can pull it off the base of skulls will have a burnt effect. If you are curious here are the filament details.
- Orange: SUNLU PLA+ @ 210° C – Figure, Staff and Base
- Yellow: CCTree PLA – @ 195° C – Weapons, cloth, belt and shoulder armor
- Strawberry (Glitter) Red: ToyBox PLA @ 195° C – Hair and ball of fire
I have used the Sunlu and CCTree rolls for other projects with excellent results. The yellow does not photograph, but I had several rolls available. The glittery red is semi transparent and works great for the FDM ball of fire and a Sebitti’s shimmery hairdo.
Sebitti Warrior 3D Model Printing Details
I 3D printed Sebitti Warrior a few months ago. I had to go back into my project files and gcodes to provide some details. As I mentioned above, my profiles keep strengthening as I learn new techniques and try different filaments. I sliced all pieces except the hair and fireball using Simplify3D [S3D] (link). Here are some details which hopefully will help you with your projects, possibly from Alexis Arroyo.
- Base Pieces – Variable Layers 0.24 to 0.12 mm @ 80 to 60 mm/s
- Cloth Pieces; Boots; Thighs; Feet; Fireball; Hair – 0.10 mm @ 60 mm/s
- Torso; Arms; Belt Pieces; Base Weapons – 0.08 mm @ 40 mm/s
- Head Staff Pieces – 0.06 mm @ 60 mm/s
I printed the fireball and hair on a FlashForge Finder (link) using their proprietary slicer Flashprint. Sebitti’s remaining parts were printed on a Longer LK4 Pro using a recent S3D profile and many custom placed supports. Print quality using S3D is typically good and sometimes better than other slicers. However, I am not a fan of manually adding and subtracting most of the supports for a quality print.
Model Quality and Cuts
Sebitti Warrior 3D print is a fire demon who enjoyed torturing me and my printer. Several support failures plagued me during this project. Using small layer heights, which take longer to print, added insult to injury when the parts required reprinting. Once sufficient supports were added, the quality and details Alexis Arroyo added to his model really began to shine. Unfortunately, FDM prints at this scale or smaller will never show all of the details that a resin MSLA printer can create. Regardless, the major details are present and the smaller details may pop once the painting stages begin.
The cuts, key and pegs fit together well with little to no sanding. Assembling the multiple tiny parts will take some patience and some fine tuning. This is the largest number of pieces required for a project I have done so far. Post processing and painting of Sebitti will be easy because it hides most of the cuts and seams in the multiple armor joints and behind her belt assembly.

Here is a slideshow of my progress, and Sebitti Warrior 3D Model finished parts. Some of the parts still need sanding and support removal. The small pieces and complex joints do not allow for easy test assembling. Therefore, I can’t provide any final assembly pictures until I eventually paint Sebitti. Regardless, enjoy the slideshow and check out the details capable with an FDM printer.
Alexis Arroyo is newer the the Facebook and Discord groups I participate in He has a growing portfolio of artwork and 3D Print-able models. I purchased one figure prior to Sebitti Warrior 3D model and plan on buying at least two more once my wallet fills back up again. Here’s are a few pictures of his other print-able models. Keep an eye out for Alexis’s upcoming Female Master Chief and attractive hologram companion.
