After reinforcing the Star-Lord helmet with epoxy and fiberglass, Bill got to work doing the bulk of the paint job. For this prop, he went with “metalizer” lacquers and an airbrush.
You read that right. Last week I 3D printed a flexible glove platform and this week I made aesthetic shell pieces to cover up the finger parts. These pieces were modeled in Fusion 360 and printed on the Sigma 3D printer. In this video I show how I finished and assembled those parts.
Bill got his hands on the Sigma Dual Extrusion 3D printer from BCN3D and put it to the test, creating a flexible and rigid costume glove platform. This video is a tutorial on how to prepare multiple material prints so that the flexible NinjaFlex and rigid ABS materials bond together.
After spending more than a year learning how to use 3D printing to make props, Bill dives in with his opinion on the current state of the technology.
Our second installment of dedicated 3D printing videos are done and we certainly had a lot of fun. Here’s some chatter about the season, some of your questions, and what’s in store for season 3!
In this final episode of the Boolean Gemini build, Bill shows how he did all of the final detail painting, assembly, and weathering.
