Printed kids Tauntaun costume (well, the head at least)

Post by daz » Tue Nov 01, 2016 10:22 pm

Hi! Long time CG artist but new to 3D printing. Love love love my Makergear so far. It was a recent gift from my wife for our anniversary and I'm just blown away by the machine.

My 4 yr old wanted to be Luke Skywalker on a Tauntaun for Halloween. I spent a few hours in Zbrush on the head sculpt, printed it out on a super low infill setting (1% iirc) to keep the weight down and medium quality.
Spent many many more hours on the rest of the costume with upholstery foam, fur and lots of painful burns with a hot glue gun.

And a little video I made of him goofing around in it:

"...spent a few hours ...." And came up with something AWESOME!!!

I would love to be able to toss off phrases like that :)

I need to get back to becoming Blender proficient.

Totally impressive job.

I've equally impressed that this was achieved with such low infill.

Thanks all. 3dPrintingMD: The 1% seemed pretty...sketchy. As I watched the machine lay down the infill it did seem somewhat stringy and messy. But the end result was exactly what I was looking for which was negligible weight. There were a few small breaks and holes in the surface but nothing I couldn't patch. Having said that, If I use such a low infill in future I'd like to be able to increase the outer wall thickness, to have a thicker 'skin' as it were. So If anyone knows what the actual setting in Simplify 3D is for that I'm all ears, because I can't see it.

Thanks for any info!

You want to up the number of Outline/Perimeter Shells on the Layer tab to increase the skin thickness.
