Printed my first costume piece


I finally broke down and bought a 3d printer. I found a design I really liked and decided it would be a good first 3d piece to make. Once I get the clean up done, mold it and make a casting I will show what it is.
I have a file to do the Flash cowl in my library. Just need to figure how to remove the lighting pieces prior to printing.
If anyone can help out that would be great.

What, do you do a scan of a piece you have? How does it work? I'm old school, explain it carefully or I may not get it.

Re: Printed my first costume piece


I am still learning myself. Getting my first prop printed wasnt too hard. Working on my second one now with some new software which is givng me a tiny headache. But there are so many tutorials online now that I am not concerned.

I'd be happy to see just the 3D printed original. What printer did you get?

I ended up buying a Robo3d since it had a decent size surface for the price. I am already looking at getting a second printer with an even larger capacity.
