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.Ordering
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 packs
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.Test status
I try to test all of the items and report the results via photos. If there's a photo available then you can see the item on a minifig.
Sometimes there are design changes done to improve the look of an item. So the photo may not be exactly accurate.
Completely new items normally have the text (test) in the name. You are very welcome to buy and test these items, document the result via a photo and discuss changes or failures with me.
If a first test is successfully done and only small adaptations are necessary the item will get the suffix (tbn).
Items which are under design normally have the suffix (prototype). The design can be considered to be under heavy change.News
Currently I'm switching to Blender as preferred 3d design tool. Since it offers more design features a lot of my models were updated during the last months. If
something is missing, send me a mail ...
Unfortunately many of these items are untested yet.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.Contact and Requestsminifigcustomsin3d at mac-au.eu
