Cubify Launches 3D Me Horror, Releases Free 3D Printable Halloween Costumes & Decor
With Halloween just around the corner, now is the time that most people who celebrate the holiday begin their preparations. What costume will they being wearing? How will they decorate their house? What will be their plans for this year’s festivities?
As a child, I recall decorating the house with ghosts, goblins, pumpkins, spider webs, and other frightening ornaments, some of which I had made myself, while others my parents purchased at the store. I remember spending hours cutting papers, coloring in pictures of goblins, and draping cotton (spider webs) over random decor throughout our home. Thinking back on it now, I can only imagine how much fun I would have had if instead of paper, markers, and cotton, I would have had a 3D printer at my disposal. Imagine how much scarier our home would have been, not to mention how much more creativity I would have been able to exhibit.
This year, 3D Systems’ Cubify website has launched a special Halloween section, making available several interesting 3D printable models to the public for free. These include all sorts of interesting decorations such as evil jack-o-lanters, spiders, bats, and skulls. Need a costume, but don’t want to run out and buy one? No problem, just download one for free and print it out at home. The Cubify Halloween page offers deigns for a few different types of masks, as well as even a mustache for those who want to wear one of the world’s oldest disguises.
For parents who want to keep their children busy, or for adults who wish to unleash their creative side, Cubify also has a section for jack-o-lantern attachments. In addition to carving out or painting a face on a pumpkin, you can now add accessories to them like bat wings, horns, or tentacles.
If you are looking to print any of these scary Halloween doo-dads, costumes or decorations out on your Cube 3D Printer, 3D Systems is offering a special Halloween cartridge pack. The pack includes glow in the dark filaments, as well as your common Halloween colors. Cartridges are $49 a piece, and discounts apply for any purchases of 4 cartridges or more.
For those of you willing to spend a little more money, then the ‘3D Me Horror’ Personalized 3D Printed figurines may be just up your haunted ally. For $69.95, you can upload a photo of your face, and have a 3D printed figurine fabricated, depicting yourself as any number of horrifying characters, from a zombie, to a vampire, to a mummy, witch, or machete-weilding man. These figurines are sure to make your friends and family question your humanity.
