3d printing for halloween

Boo! We’re back again with both tricks and treats to keep this spooky season even scarier than the last. Halloween has always been a time to celebrate the macabre, the gruesome, and the bone-chilling --- all in good fun! For makers and 3D printheads, they commemorate the season by 3D designing and printing scary decors, cosplays, and gifts.

To keep your hearts racing and the hairs on the back of your necks, here are 10 Halloween 3D printing ideas from Thingiverse and Printables. 

1. Cup of Teeth by DaveMakesStuff

3d printed tooth cup

Whether you’re an aspiring orthodontist or just really love teeth, this Cup of Teeth by DaveMakesStuff will astound you while scaring off your guests. It is claimed to consist of a full set of adult teeth so you can memorise all the types of teeth while enjoying a cup of brew or two. 

2. Brain Bucket by H120Pilot

If you fancy brains more (with fava beans and a nice Chianti), here’s a brain candy basket. This 3D-printed brain bucket also comes with a skull cap, brain, and jaw, but you can skip printing the other if all you want is a candy container. Otherwise, the complete set can be the perfect Halloween decoration for any spookhead or a plain old med student. 

3. Fidget boo by JustinSDK
