3d-models for fursuit or puppet head bases


15 March 2019 at 12:36:58 MDT

These are some examples of 3d-models that I made for 3d-printing (the photo in the middle is a 3d-printed head base with felt ears attached). Those models can be used to build a puppet-, plushie-, robot-, costume-, or fursuit-head. I did add some ventilation holes, that can also be used to attach fur. The lower jaws are movable. I released some of my models on Thingiverse - free to use for non-commercial purposes. You can change the size as you like.

Please do not sell prints of my models - that would create unfair competition for my friends who sell their 3d-printed head bases (not based on my models).

If you want more information on how to use them to build hand-puppets go to http://puppet.tioh.de/

More photos of finished 3d-prints are in my Livejournal https://tioh.livejournal.com/

    Compared to a regular foam or resin head how light and durable are they?

      That depends on the material used for printing. My test-prints are usually made with PLA - it can crack if you drop it from head height on a stone floor (I have one head that survived two drops without any damage). Most of those prints weight around 250g. I have several heads that are over 5 years old - nothing broke so far.

      If I print a head base with Nylon it's tougher when any other material I've ever used - I stepped on one, threw it on a stone floor,... - no damage at all (I don't print with Nylon very often, because the material is expensive and the prints can fail easily - 5 PLA heads cost about the same as 1 Nylon head). I once did a minimal Nylon head base that weighs 58g (covers only the front of the wearers face).
