3D Printed Monster High Shoes

It has been a “Holy Grail” for me to have custom Monster High (or Ever After High) shoes. We’ve 3D Printed several things, but shoes have been a hard thing because our printers could not do fine details very well. Fast forward to two weeks ago when my husband told me he invested in an Anycubic Photon Resin Printer. it’s an LCD printer that uses projection to harden UV resin. I’m not going to get any more technical, so please don’t stop reading now! The point is that this printer will allow us to get CRAZY detailed prints. Look how cool this dragon looks!

Anyways, you aren’t here for Dragons. We’ve been working on this for some time and I can finally show you a product I am proud of! These are my 3D Printed Steampunk Monster High (or Ever After High) Shoes!

This is just the first in a long line of custom shoes we are going to make. If people are interested in them, I can post them in my Etsy store. Please let me know what you think! I’ll share more with you once I make more :)

Our 3D Models are now on Thingiverse!

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile, but I wanted to let you all know that some of our 3D models have been posted on Thingiverse for you to download! Since we aren’t able to keep up with the Etsy store like we would like, we thought we would share these files with anyone that wants them.

We posted: The Kitty Arm Warmers; The Monster High Girl Wall Mount; and although this has been there for awhile, I thought I would point out the Monster High Girl Stand Clip.

If you don’t have a 3D printer, you might want to check out your local library, because several are starting to have 3D Printers available. I think our local community college has some in its small business center. You might also want to search for something called a makerspace or a hackerspace. A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.

Let me know if you download these models and print them! I’d love to hear from you and to see your work! Feel free to share using my name in your hashtag. #rayedelsol or @rayedelsol will get me on Instagram. Looking forward to hearing from you!!

3D Printing and Sewing

I’ve been having fun on Instagram chatting with people and making friends there. I got into an interesting conversation with @kuru.kurumi about 3D printed weapons. Check them out: Continue reading

Quin’s New Head and Eyes

We want to thank our friends at 3DKitBash.com for their amazing doll, Quin. You may have heard me mention her, a few times.

The Kickstarter was a success! Our friends at 3DK have given us at rayedelsol.com a chance to review the new Quin head FIRST and bring you our thoughts. Thank you so much, 3DK for this opportunity!

Quin's New Head and Eyes

Quin’s new head prints in two different pieces. This allows you to insert 12mm doll eyes into her head, similar to a BJD.

The seam isn’t very noticeable, and I think with a proper wig, you wouldn’t even see it.

Quin's New Head and Eyes
That weird film you see on her eyes is left-over glue. The head that 3DK sent me also comes with printable eyes. We had printed these eyes and glued them in, but I just wasn’t happy with the result. The eyes print in two pieces, a part for the whites and another for the irises. These two don’t perfectly fit (the irises are too small) and caused for some slipping. I just didn’t like the look they gave her.

Edit: I’m going to add some photos of the 3D printed eyes. These have glue on them, so please don’t hold that against them. Also, I had lost my natural lighting when I snapped these photos, so her coloring may look a little off.

Quin's New Head and Eyes
These are 12mm doll/cat eyes that I purchased for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby. There is a tiny gap on the side of her eyes, but the eyes stay firmly in place with no glue needed. I didn’t even have to take the screw off the back of the eyes! 3DK left a place in her head for them to sit.

I think this new eye mechanism (and her new wrists, thanks to Mr. del Sol) give her SO much more character!

I can assure you, 3DK is very busy getting Quin’s modifications perfect! I can’t wait to see what all comes from this Kickstarter project!
