Why 3D printable models?
Many people are switching from foam build (pepakura models) to 3D printed models because they are simply more durable and long-lasting. Our highly detailed models can be 3D printed into realistic wearable props! These 3D printed costumes can look very authentic and therefore impress everyone at a cosplay show (Comic con) or a Halloween party! To make the file compatible with many printers, we have converted our models into multiple formats such as obj and stl.
3D Printing Tips
The current model is created for a 6′ tall person but you can re-scale the model using any FREE 3D modeling applications such as meshmixer, cura or netfabb. These software help you repair and close small holes on the model and cut/slice the model into small pieces according to your printer’s build volume. You can find many free video tutorials on YouTube.
Since every 3D printer and brand has different specs, you need to slice the file according to your build volumes.
According to our test, the total cost of material/plastic for a whole helmet was $10.06. (500 g used at $20.13/kg)
We hope this information is useful to plan out your project.
