river_chaos Posted January 16, 2020 Share Posted January 16, 2020 (edited) Hi! Long time, no posts, lol. If any of you have kept up with my blog, then you'll know I've been making some charms made from resin cast in silicon molds. Most of my mold shapes are more "retro" and "nerdy" stuff like a Nintendo Gameboy, Switch, Switch Joycons, My Hero Academia characters, Hamtaro (yes I found someone that made a cute little Ham Ham), and Legend of Zelda symbols. I haven't made my own casting molds because 1) it's just as expensive to make as casting resin, 2) we have a little German Shepherd pup that sheds like crazy and her fur gets EVERYWHERE, and 3) I didn't have a solid way of making blanks for mold making until a few months ago. My boyfriend and one of our roommates went in together to buy a 3D printer to start making their costume props faster and sturdier (to an extent), and they've both seen my mold stash and wondered if I'd want to start making my own molds. So now we come to this post. I want to make some Guyver related stuff, and I don't know where to start. Should I go for the inactive Guyver Unit? Or something else that can translate well into a 3D print? This isn't laser cutting (I'm not gonna get some super fine details that could make a chibi Ramotith tag), but I can get a lot of texture with the printer I've got access to along with the software to build the model before it's printed. I'm open to suggestions! Instagram: anna.smith.545 (for all of my resin related pictures) Edited January 16, 2020 by river_chaos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
