If you have ever wanted to use 3D printing to create a replica prop or use 3D printed parts in your cosplay, this book is for you. Whether you’re new to 3D printing or a veteran, these pages contain what you need to know to take a raw print to a fully finished prop that looks like the real deal. The chapters cover basic concepts and materials and progress towards more intermediate topics: editing and creating models, tips and tricks for finishing printed parts, and how you can reproduce a 3D print in solid metal. Each chapter features models created by the author and other makers so you can see the discussed techniques in action. The book also includes free 3D models you can edit and print to follow along with the examples.
