3D Printing Earrings with Blender


Chris Plush from CG Masters creates 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' earrings with Blender and has them 3D printed.

Interested in 3D printing? Take a look at this tutorial on prepping your models for print using This is an overview of the printing process for a pair of earrings based on the axe Buffy uses in the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. These earrings have even gotten the attention of two slayers from the show, Eliza Dushku who actually tweeted about it on her page, and Sarah Michelle Gellar who gave a shout out to my girlfriend Shannon for being an awesome fan(the earrings were a Christmas present for her).

Since many fans of the show have been asking about them, I created a quick overview of the printing process that includes some helpful tips on prepping your model for print, uploading to Shapeways, and painting the model once you have it in hand. I hope you'll find this useful!
