3D Printing Props and Costumes

Punished Props is learning modeling for 3D Printing. Follow along with our videos and create your own models–it just takes practice! We take the printed pieces even further by cleaning them up and even molding and casting copies.

Our current 3D printer is the Dremel Idea Builder. It’s a “plug and play” reliable workhorse that uses PLA filament. The Idea Builder’s built-in printing software is limited, so we invested in is Simplify3D, which has improved our print quality greatly.

We encourage everyone to try modeling their own prints. Once you learn how to model, you can print anything you want! Here’s a list of modeling programs below. If you’ve never modeled before, we recommend learning 123D Design, which keeps things simple, but is also limited. We’re currently learning 123D Design’s big brother; Fusion 360, which is awesome!
