Of all the 3D printed weapons we’ve featured, we’ve never had a look at arguably the most famous one from Marvel – Thor’s hammer. Let’s do that now.
This design is based on Mjolnir’s* appearance in Thor: The Dark World and was created by maker Garrett Kearney. You may also know Kearney as Chaos Core Tech on YouTube. He’s brought us a lot of interesting 3D prints in the past, such as Clank from Ratchet & Clank and the Planet Express Ship from Futurama.
While not following any dimensions from an official prop, Kearney designed this life-sized hammer from scratch. You can see the design process as well as the printing and finishing in the video that accompanies this project.
To get it looking as accurate as it does in the gallery below, you’ll need to use a lot of elbow grease. But, to start, you’ll need the files which are free from Thingiverse as well as a host of other places such as MyMiniFactory and Pinshape.
If you’re not interested in a static prop, you can use it to (harmlessly) prank people by fitting it with an electromagnet and a finger print sensor, making it impossible to lift as it is in the comic books and movies.

*Yes we know it’s sometimes referred to as “Mjölnir” and that is most likely the “more correct” way to write it.
