Need Some Halloween Help? Gambody Gets into the Holiday Spirit with Four Frightening 3D Printable Game-Inspired Masks
Halloween is mere weeks away – have you figured out your costume yet? I haven’t, which is nothing new – I always wait until the last minute, ending up with something that’s either brilliant in its resourcefulness or just…lame. We’ll see what happens this year! If you’re still feeling stuck, Gambody may be able to give you a little bit of help. The gamer-centric 3D printing marketplace is already getting into the holiday spirit with four new 3D printable mask models based on popular game characters – and they are, I must say, both frightening and frighteningly well-designed.
“Halloween is a very popular holiday that has recently been focusing mostly on costumes. And we thought to surprise our community and prepared a special Halloween Edition of 3D printable masks,” said Aleksandr Ignatenko, co-founder and CEO of Gambody. “There are 4 different video game character masks, adapted for 3D printing and ready to be recreated on your desktop 3D printer.”
First up is the Chaos Space Marine of Warhammer 40,000. Expertly rendered, with detailed scars and a murderous facial expression, this mask is actually an easy – although lengthy – print. The single-file model requires little support will take about one day and thirteen hours, plus 26.7m of printing material, according to Gambody. The final size will be 163mm wide, 190mm tall, and 97mm deep.
Next is the villainous Pudge, also known as the Butcher, from Dota 2. As meticulously detailed as the Chaos Space Marine, this particular mask will take you a bit longer to print – about three days, in fact, according to Gambody, as well as 36.5m of printing material. The final size will be 134mm deep, 183mm wide, and 195mm tall, and this one should be an easy print as well, as long as you follow the guidelines laid out by Gambody (you’re probably going to want some supports for this one). It’s also designed with convenient holes on each side so you can easily attach elastic or other material to hold the mask on your face.
Also from Dota 2 is the Doom mask, and be warned – doom is what you might feel if you take this project on. It’s not a simple one at all – this mask prints in 11 pieces and will take about 10 days. The results will be worth it, though, because it’s incredible-looking, featuring a horned helmet that fits over the head and doesn’t require any additional elastic bands. There’s also a simplified version without the helmet, that should take about three days and is less daunting. The full version, when completed, will be 382mm deep, 384mm wide, and 597mm tall.
Finally, there’s the BattleMech Atlas mask from BattleTech. This is a two-part print that should take about three days, plus 42.94m of printing material. Once printed and assembled, this mask will be 208mm wide, 95mm deep, and 235mm tall.
The Gambody team 3D printed the Chaos Space Marine mask themselves, and you can see some additional pictures of their print below – check out that detail. Happy early Halloween! What do you think of these masks? Discuss further in the Gambody 3D Printable Masks forum over at 3DPB.com.
