Cosplay 3DPrint and Pipboy 3000 Rock on

Lately we have been getting a few Cosplay 3dprint enquiries in for props and armour for character costumes. This is quite a new area for us but we feel that we can offer a really excellent service at a great price.

For example a full set of Cosplay 3dprint parts of the Pipboy3000 is a project we took on recently and managed to get the price down as low as £50. This is a nice clean print with all the build structure taken off. Our customer was most pleased with the result too.

As far as modelmaking for your own Cosplay 3dprint and prototype costume it seems like a fantastic way to get shapes that would otherwise be hard to make by traditional methods. The added benefit of Cosplay 3dprint is that you get your parts to play with right away. Cosplay 3dprints can be sanded, painted, and weathered all very easily which can make you and your costume stand out from the crowd.
