While at Matterhackers, Bill teamed up with Alec to show how the Destiny Boolean Gemini scout rifle prop is assembled from plethora of 3D printed parts.
Bill and Ali Williams teamed up to bring the Nuka Cola Thirst Zapper prop to live! Together at the Matterhackers shop, the duo assembled and painted the prop gun.
Prop 3D Season 3 is just around the corner and Bill has the rundown on what you can expect! We’re covering a budget 3D printer build, plenty of props, and experimenting with flexible filament!
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.
