Anyone use 3D printers to make cosplay costumes?

(1/1)

chocolateshake:
With the recent availability of low cost large volume 3D printers, it's possible to print things like helmets as one big complete item instead of gluing together a bunch of little pieces.  Does anyone here use 3D printers to make their outfits?

dcuodust:
I have never used them. But I know last year when I was figuring out my Fallout 4 cosplay people were selling 3D printed Vault Suit accessories and Pip-Boys. I even came across instructions/files/codes so that you could print the Pip-Boy yourself.

There's a lot of stuff to think about when you try to print one big piece, so I still prefer to print in small pieces

You need to worry about "overhangs" which means printing filler material so that the helmet doesn't fall apart while printing. It's a big waste of filament and after the print is done, you need to remove that filler material which is a huge pain.
