Halloween is the time to use your unique talent to create the wildest masks, props, décor, and dismembered limbs — unfettered by client demands or revisions. And this year, you can leave the sewing kit in the closet and put down the foam cutting tools because you have a new technology that will create your craziest creations frighteningly fast. It’s a big 3D printer and look what you can do with it. . .
When There Is Not Enough Time To Carve Props With Foam Cutting Tools
When time is tight, your fabrication options are limited. But it’s okay: there is 3D printing. Many times, large format 3D printing is your only option for getting props produced on time when faced with scary deadlines.
And if a giant Frankenstein or Darth Maul is your thing, look no further. 3D design and modeling software let you bring to life any spine-chilling, super-sized creature you can imagine. Size has no boundaries, and the Massivit 1800 can print up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) high. It can be an entire creature or just one of several parts that you can piece together to make something really big!
Whether it’s a witch (the #2 Google searched costume this year) or Yoda. Whether a 27-foot (8.3 meter) skeleton or a bloodcurdling dinosaur, 3D printing puts the power of creation in your hands.
This 4-foot (1.2-meter) tall Hulk was 3D printed in 15.5 hours by Dangling Carrot Creative in California. New York-based Carisma, famous for their 3D-printed bus wraps, printed this 22-inch (half-meter) tall Yoda head in under 5 hours.
How do Massivit 3D large format printers work faster than smaller desktop 3D printers?
The Secret to Super-fast Large Format 3D Printing
Desktop 3D printers use a heated filament that requires far more time to print than Massivit 3D printers which were used to print the Yoda and Hulk above. Massivit 3D solutions leverage patented Gel Dispensing Technology that prints super-sized objects frighteningly fast. It also prints objects hollow, and that makes it easy to add illumination. (You can also add your head—if you wish to wear Yoda as a mask.)
3D Is Dead-On
Complex shapes are no longer a challenge. Instead of relying on foam carving tools that sometimes slip or CNC machines that are limited in geometry freedom, you can now dream up any crazy curves or difficult angles on the screen and rest assured that you’ll end up with what you conceptualized.
There’s no guesswork. It’s digital. And it’s out of this world.
3D Printing Big Time
Need a skeleton for your Halloween pool party? Check out our Mexican friend, Morti, the skeleton. He stretches 27.5 feet (8.3 meters) across. Printing time: 120 hours. That’s scary fast. (Assembly required!)
Large format 3D printing is the hero when you are faced with hauntingly tight deadlines or a rapidly approaching Halloween. . .and no time or desire to travel to the store.
Whether you need a mask, a full-blown costume, or larger-than-life props for a major event, Massivit 3D’s solutions are the tech that can take you from “How can I get it done?” to “Wow, what’s next!”
