Hi, my name is Woody64 and due to a historical interest I have started to create hats and helmets compatible with LEGO® Minifigs as a hobby. During the last years I have created a large collection of Minifig accessories from the ancient past to the near future.
All these designs are shared via this shop and can be ordered from the 3d printing provider Shapeways where this platform is lying on.
If you want to purchase one of these items I would recommend pWSF
(which includes the option to choose of some predefined colors) for the smaller price range and transparent detailed or frosted detailed
for the larger range.
To achieve more attractive prices many items are available as packs (i.e. 5x = 5 items). Please take a look in the [url=../../../../../shops/MinifigCustomsIn3d?section=Packs]packs[/url] section to see if a pack is available. If it's missing try to contact me to see if I can provide such a package.
Please consider with 3d printing you can create singletons but you can't achieve prices as reachable with injection modling.
But on the other hand you will have a very specific piece in hand which only exists some dozens times around the world.
Please also consider that you buy the item from Shapeways, who is responsible for order handling, 3d printing and shipping.
Please keep in mind that you get 3d printed items which are the base for further activities. Postprocessing like coloring with Acrylic colors and sanding may achieve excellent results. If you are using the items as produced you may choose pWSF in any color. Still you will see some grainy surface. On photos this impression is more visible then in reality. If you take a look on the items from a normal distance it's even hard to recognize. But still it's not injection molded plastic.
New Item Requests
I'm also open to suggestions for new item types
. There are a lot of such items now available in the existing collection which were based on user requests.
