If you are like me then you might find yourself waiting until the last possible minute to purchase a Halloween costume for that hot Halloween party you may be attending after the kids have their fun collecting candy throughout the neighborhood. Once again, this year I will be purchasing a costume for myself on Halloween day, waiting in lines seemingly the length of an airport runway. It’s times like these I wish I had thought ahead a little more.
This year, however, if you own a 3Doodler pen, you may be in luck. 3Doodler has made it much easier for you to create that unique Halloween mask, or even entire costume that’s sure to get quite the acknowledgement from the crowds. This week the company revamped their community page, featuring dozens of designs for items and stencils to use in the creation of those 3Doodled items. Included in the library are five new masks perfect for Halloween.
Each mask listed has multi-step instructions and a 2D printable stencil to help you get started. Included in the mask designs are a snow wolf, a blood mask, a Chinese mask, a wild multi-eyed mask and a Masquerade mask. All five of the masks start out with a stencil which the user can slowly extruded molten plastic onto as they follow the detailed instructions provided in a PDF file. The great thing about the 3Doodler is that it’s up to the end user how 3-dimensional they want to make it. Make a flat mask, or continue to build up and outward with the plastic to make it pop out even more.
These are not projects you will be able to complete within an hour, however. They will all take several hours of work, so if you do plan on wearing one for Halloween night, you’d better get started right away.
When the 3Doodler first launched, I was one of their biggest skeptics. I even tried it when it first came out. The problem at launch was that no one really knew how to use it, or what to do with it. Over the last several months, 3Doodler has clearly realized that useful applications for their product is what will market it best. Their new, revamped community page certainly provides a number of incredible applications and projects for the first ever 3D printing pen.
Let us know if you have created any of the masks mentioned above. We would love to see pictures, so please post them in the 3Doodler Halloween Mask forum thread on 3DPB.com.
