Pull those space invaders straight out of 1978 and print your own.


Open each stl and print. A little cleanup with an exacto fixes them up nicely.

do you have these as scads? they'd be fun to mod with a little keychain attachment.

not sure what scads are.. I can make them into obj or any other format though

Any bets on how long it'll take before someone has a stop motion video on youtube using these to play a simulated game of Space Invaders? :-D

That's funny you say that because I was going to put that in the instructions :-D

Flippin Genius!!! I love it!
Yes, add the Player and Base!
Absolutely Genius!

I don't want to be critical,
But I recently worked these guys out for InvaderChron on Adafruit's Monochron Clock.
(See Adafruit.Com)
Technically, I think all the invaders were the same size. (width and height)
Except maybe the saucer.
It was a brilliant work of pixelation and characterization.

Also, please simplify, add a one-zip download!

Ya I scaled each one individually before printing. I should scale them all together as one. might need to clean them up some to. It was late.

zip added..

Do the player's ship! And those blocker thingies

Yeah. And a missle. I will.


Were there really 9 kinds of ships!? I always thought there were only like 4. :-)

Ya there's 4 but 2 states for each one when they walk. I should have arranged them better in the photos.
