Celebrate Halloween with 3D printing
After years of 3D printing of skulls, ghosts, pumpkins and the usual suspects, we decided to kick things off for this year's Halloween. We wanted to do something that is creative, scary and bordering on disrupting the da Vinci 3D printers sitting on our desks!
After a week of getting our hands dirty (and bloodstained), here's what we need to show it. Definitely Halloween worthy!
This bleeding baby doll headlight was made with a reusable silicone mold, which in turn was created by a 3D printed main model. One of our team members suggested getting the baby dolls to bleed from their eyes. We are extra careful with this person now.
The best? We've created a step-by-step DIY home study to make these bleeding doll headlights (or any other model, for that matter).
The whole process can be divided into three stages ̵
1. 3D Printer
(we used da Vinci Jr. 1.0 A Pro!)
2. PLA filament
4. Mold release spray
5. Gram scale / measuring cups
6. Silicone and hardener 7. Tool knife / box cutter
8. Small pot or saucepan
9. Electric cooker or induction cooker
10. Soy Wax Flakes
11. Red lights
12. Light Fold
