Thor Costume by danprussell11 Oct 20, 2016

Summary

This is a Thor Costume that I have designed myself. I am a 14 year old in 9th grade that just got involved in 3d designing and printing. I have been working on this for 15 days and have been learning from scratch ever since. I have learned the whole software by myself within the duration of this project. My school provided the filament and 3d printer needed to make this costume. I made a full Thor Armor piece and a twelve piece split Thor Armor set to put together. You need to glue the Thor Armor together if you print the pieces of the split Thor Armor. Also, before you print, you need to adjust the pieces to the size of your body. You can use whatever filament suits you.

How I Designed This

How I Designed my Costume

I designed my costume by starting from scratch, but I had an amazing dream of what it would end up to be. My project has taught me not only to design 3d objects, but how to learn on my own. This is an awesome field that I hope I can continue to explore and strive at.

Standards

Overview and Background

About My Costume

My costume took a lot of time and effort to design/print. I started this project 15 days ago, and worked about 3 hours each day on it. By doing this I have learned to design a costume that not only looks cool, but was very complicated to design. I am very grateful to be given this opportunity to strive in the field of 3d designing and can't wait to design another cool thing like this one.

Lesson Plan and Activity

What I did to Accomplish This Costume

My plan was to make a costume that amazed people. When I thought of a superhero costume, I was hooked. Thor is one of my favorite superheroes with a costume that I could make. I had a dream of what my costume could turn out like and it turned out perfect. My activity of this costume was very short, but precise. For a first time designer, I'd say it's pretty good.

Materials Needed

Filament and 3d Printer

You need any filament color you prefer and a compatible 3d printer that can print my costume.

I think for you being so young you knocked it out of the park man. I'm glad you shared this with the rest of us. I cannot wait to see what else you design! Very very good work here! The stuff isn't easy but you make it look easy, keep that up! :)

Well maybe you will. :)

Well maybe you will. :)

I wish I was that good at designing, lol!

The twelve piece split Thor Armor needs to be adjusted to your body size.

@Lordbrocktree1: I just put the twelve piece split Thor Armor set into the costume. You need to superglue the pieces together to get the final Thor Armor. Have fun printing and putting it together. :)

Keep up the good work!

Sure, I will get the file in here by the deadline.

Any way you can break these down into smaller pieces for those of us that dont have printers that can print human sizes?

Download Netfabb free and you can cut the files yourself. its actually quite simple

Thank you for commenting. It means a lot.
