Today’s print is Picklomancer, from Part 1 of the Picklomancer saga comic we released this morning.
For a description of the print, I will use the post our 3D wizard, Connor Boyd, used on our Thingiverse page (where you can check out the 3D model, or print, Picklomancer.)
“After a cucumber of unusual origins succumbs to the briny deep, he re-awakes as Picklomancer. Now endowed with magical powers, he is able to raise vegetables and fruits from beyond the sell by date. Speaking in tongues and playing haunting melodies from his piccolo, he casts spells over various compost piles and grocery store dumpsters. Picklomancer summons his army of rotten produce to do his bidding. For good or evil, no one knows. What kind of evil or damage could a bunch of rotten produce do anyways?
A cool bonus feature of Pickomancer is he can also be a night light. Just download a flashlight app for your phone and as it charges, put Picklomancer over the light on the phone. He emanates a soft green glow from his head to ward off the baddies as you sleep.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself!
To keep in line with our fantasy conquest, the 3D printing news of the day is a 3D printed Skyrim sword, from Gateros Plating in the UK. (This one’s for you Brenden Hurley!) After printing the design on their Ultimaker 1.0 3D printer, they use an electroforming processs to coat the print in a thin layer of metal. To print and coat your own cosplay tools, you can order electroplating kits off of the Gateros Plating Website. Via 3DPrintingIndustry.com
Look back tomorrow to find out what could possibly happen in Part 2 of the Picklomancer comic. And, uhh… if you have any ideas, let me know, I’m still trying to figure that out myself :-D.
