• Build: Dark Rey Lightsaber – The Rise of Skywalker

    The Rise of Skywalker got everyone talking when they released a trailer showing ‘Dark Rey’. She had a pretty unique Lightsaber, and I wanted to build it – So I did!! Here’s how I did it… Before we start on the build, I like to include a list of some of the general things you’ll need for this project, for those who wish to follow along, and build their own. You can download the 3D files for this build for free over at Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4026233 Things you’ll need: A 3D printer – duh! My 3D files (See link above) Sandpaper – Various Grades inc wet sanding paper Lolly Sticks –…

  • Build: Kylo Ren Helmet – The Rise of Skywalker

    If you read my first Kylo post on here, you’d know I was a little…heartbroken when Kylo smashed his helmet to pieces. But along came JJ Abrams (praise him!) with his magic red space glue, and put it back together like grandmas smashed vase. Thanks, JJ! Before we get too into things, I’ll post a list of things I used in this project, for anyone that wants to follow along on their own helmet. What you’ll need A 3D printer – and my files Various grades of sandpaper – I used 80 up to 3000 An airbrush A Dremel – or other rotary tool Glue Gun Epoxy Glue – Optional…

  • Build: Harry Potter and the Game of Thrones

    After finishing my Stormbreaker build, I was a little stuck; What to make next? Annoyingly, nothing was jumping out at me. That was until I finished my annual re-watch of the Potter films, and read the books, and watched Game of Thrones, S1-8, and started reading the books. Then it struck me… Over the past few months, I have been working on combining two of my absolute favourite worlds; Potter and Thrones (Yes, even after Season 8…shhh!) I didn’t realise just how long this project would take when I first set off on my journey back in June (the 24th to be exact). The project has taken me in multiple…

  • Build: 3D Printed Stormbreaker – Avengers Infinity War

    I think we can all agree that Thor’s new hammer in Avengers Infinity War is pretty damn awesome! Thankfully, I didn’t have to take the energy of a dying star to the face to make my hammer! Here is my build log/guide for how to make Thor’s new hammer – Stormbreaker – using my 3D files, which are available for free to download! We’ll start with a list of things I used for this build, which will help anyone who wants to follow along. 3D printer – Duh… Stormbreaker 3D Files – Here Sandpaper – Wet + Dry – various Grades Airbrush 8mm Studding Filler of Choice XTC-3D Primer and/or…

  • Build: Dumbledore’s Wand – Fantastic Beasts 2

    I love Harry Potter. It actually wasn’t until a recent rewatch of the franchise that I realised just how much. I, like many Potter fans, have been somewhat excited about the revival of the franchise. For me though, Fantastic Beasts is what the Hobbit it to Lord of the Rings. It attempts to scratch the itch, but it’s not quite enough! Anyway…Dumbledore has a new wand! Another new wand that is; it’s quite confusing, as he was pictured with a different wand originally, but now it has changed to something entirely different, and if I say so, quite elegant. I saw the pictures of the wand on Twitter, and thought…

  • GUIDE – How to Make an Awesome 3D Printed Kylo Ren Lightsaber

    In this guide, I’ll be using my 3D printed Kylo Ren Lightsaber, and showing you the steps I took to achieve some pretty good results! Finishing these files is actually not too complicated. There is some sanding required, but if you print the files at 0.1mm or less, it won’t take that long at-all! Disclaimer: I am by no means a professional. I’m still a noob when it comes to this kind of thing, but I achieved some good results, and wanted to share my process. If you know a better way of doing something that I do/show in this guide, please let me know! Here are some of the…

  • 3D Printed Kylo Ren Helmet + Lightsaber

    From the moment I saw Kylo Rens helmet, I’ve been a little obsessed with it. So you can imagine my disappointment when he smashed it to pieces in The Last Jedi.. I had been thinking of making my own for a long time, originally planning to do the Black Series helmet mod. I knew that 3D printing a helmet was a possibility, but there were a few problems. I didn’t have a 3D printer All of the readily available files for the kylo helmet were less than good. I didn’t want to potentially spend months on a project, only for the final helmet to not look right. But by chance,…
