Hey this is a commission I made . It is Mjolnir from Soul Eater.
I initially made a 3d model of it using fusion 360
The model was pretty basic and easily done. took me about 15 minutes to throw it together. I then 3dprinted it and showed the print to my client to make sure she liked the design of the hammer before I proceed to designing puzzle pieces.
After the client said “I love it,” I began designing the puzzle pieces which took about 5 hours.
After this step I began laser cutting the pieces and glueing them together
The pieces did have these tooth edges that could be easily sanded off.
I do not know why but some 3d printer do not come with a layer fan. In my opinion, layer fans are must haves in every printer. The reason is it once the molten/melted pla is deposited on a layer it will tend to ooze if it Is still warm. Oozing plastic will result in bad layer construction in 3d prints.
in the video you can see the drastic difference in print quality with and without a fan.
This is one of my projects I am working on. Someone asked if I could create Marie’s Mjolnir and I said “yep, I probably could.”
To start out, I used fusion 360 to model the hammer. Then I 3d printed it to scale for my bodychan so i can show it to my client via video or photo. the body chan gives them a good reference of the object to the human body.
I am still waiting for my client to give me any suggestions before I actually start designing the life size hammer. I will probably use plywood and the laser cutter to make the hammer cause I want it to be cost effective, high quality, and light weight.
Thanks for reading
Please follow my page if you enjoy my work.
you can also follow my youtube channel where I try to make videos about my work. I try….
Thanks again! enjoy some dorky 3d prints.
I am also thinking about using my laser cutter to make wallets and pursure. of course they will be geeky and pop culture influenced.
dI have been following this youtube channel for a while and they are one of my driving force for all of my projects.
They just posted a video today about Bill’s (the host of Punished Props) birthday and YAY! he shares the same birthday as me. It would be great to meet these guys in real life one day. Maybe, one day . Oh well I will keep working on my props and post occasional videos and blogs and maybe just maybe we will meet one day.
Please visit their channel and download their free E-book celebrating their birthday…. our birthday. *cough* their birthday.
I used a soldering iron to clean the anime girl. Tracer’s model came out with a million holes and I tried to fill them all with the soldering iron. yea she didn’t come out well either. If i were to reprint her i would probably scale her up and add more supports. he model was rendered weirdly and isn’t very printer friend.
Hey I asked a friend to save her armor pattern so I can testing my laser cutting worbla idea and I gotta say it came out great. And also test out my table turner I built.
I asked my friend to send me photos of her patterns and used photoshop to trace her pattern:
I then transfered the trace on to the laser cutter and got this.
The pieces came out great but putting them together was tough. I actually ruined my mannequin by melting the worbla on to the mannequin on accident. Aso I need to shrink my hands to make the armor. it was tough attaching the tiny worbla pieces together.
And finally test the table turner. Here is a link to a video test of my model on the table turner.

for letting test out my idea with her In Progress Cosplay.
Having a laser cutter is great! if you have many tedious pieces in your cosplay play, you should consider contacting a maker space in your city to laser cut the pieces for you. normally it would take me an hour to cut those tiny pieces but the laser cuts it out in lets than a minute.
If you have any questions please shoot me an e-mail.
If you enjoy my work and want to support me shoot me a follow. I do plan on using my table turner to show off more cosplays and 3d prints.
