Our buddies Evan & Katelyn came to visit the shop and they brought their awesome homemade water blaster! We decided it could do with a visual upgrade, so we rusted, weathered, and lit it up for an epic final look.
Han Solo’s lucky Sabacc dice are a great little project to learn some basic 3D modeling. In this video Bill shows you how to model the parts in Fusion 360 and then finish and paint the 3D prints to look like the prop from the movie.
Zortax sent us their M300 3D Printer and a pile of filament to create a project. Our family and cosplay counterparts, Jaimi and Rob, were crafting a Samus costume from the Metroid video games and wanted to 3D print the helmet. What a great way to try out the large build volume of the M300 and make an awesome cosplay helmet!
Bill experiments with using 3D printing as an alternate method for creating stencils to add decals to props and costumes! After a bit of tinkering, he gets some pretty great results!
Bill goes over his design process for some 3D printed mechanical, functional parts for an upcoming prop build.
This is it! The final step in our epic cheap 3D printer helmet build. Follow along as Bill shows how he sanded and painted the Tank Trooper helmet that was printed on the ultra budged Anet A8 3D printer.
