Next-Level Cosplay with 3D Printing - 3D Universe Untethered Episode 1

Next-Level Cosplay with 3D Printing - 3D Universe Untethered Episode 1

We recently launched a new program, 3D Universe Untethered, a series of webinars, videos and podcasts covering different aspects of 3D printing and digital fabrication across various industries.

For the first episode, “Next-Level Cosplay with 3D Printing,” Co-hosts Jeremy Simon and Jen Owen of 3D Universe chatted with Cosplayers Dave Lysen and Dan Simon about their epic Star Wars-themed 3D printed cosplay builds.

Serial Kilter, Dan Simon, with his 3D printed Mandalorian Heavy Infantry armor

“Serial Kilter” Dan Simon originally started using a 3D printer to create PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) during the COVID pandemic to help his local police and first responders and soon discovered he could also now create the Heavy Infantry Kilted Mandalorian armor of his dreams.

Dave Lysen teamed up with 3D printed e-NABLE Prosthetics co-inventor, Ivan Owen and 3D Universe's Jeremy Simon and Dan Pelland to create a K-2SO Cosplay project with functional 3D printed mechanical hands.

Check out the video and podcast links below for some fun stories about their first 3D printed cosplay builds, lessons learned, things that made them giddy, and their epic failures (eh…learning moments) along the way!
