Introduction: 3D Printable 16 Bit Plumber Mask

About: "End of line..."


Now any plush impostor can pose as the "16 Bit Plumber"! This was a request by my 4yr old daughter as she was getting tired of her American Doll's face!

My daughter wanted to carve and color her doll's face but I paid so much for that stinking thing I just couldn't let her do it... So to compromise we designed a Mario mask to her doll's face scale and fixed a scrunchy hair tie to the mask for perfect fitment. Now she likes her doll again and I kinda do too.

This one is easy if you have access to a 3D printer, go to: http://www.123dapp.com/skp-3D-Model/16BitPlumberMask/603173 , download the 123D file, open it in the free 123D app, size to your liking/print bed, export to a .stl file, slice with your preferred gcode creating software and print your own "16 Bit Plumber Mask".  Drill holes in the temple for your choice of mounting string and you can use a Sharpie to color in the eyebrows and mustache to your liking.  

I printed this in ~2hrs using no support material for doll fitment at my daughters request; see uploaded images for actual output.

Make On!

    Is it just me or does that plumbing guy look kind of scary, if you are saying it is an addition to a kid's toy. Nonetheless, I am sure kids would love it because they get to customize their existing toys and feel like as though they have new toys to play with. A very economical and fun way to bond with the kids and add even more fun to their playtime.

    Kinda came out a bit creepy! But my daughter was happy so I guess on some level its a win...

    I know that the theme here is Mario, but wouldn't it be awesome to make a Skyrim dragon mask (If you have played Skyrim you know what object I mean) to print in 3D ? And what 3D printer are you using ?

    I am familiar with all things Elder Scrolls! That's a good idea and I just might attempt that.

    I run a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic MK6+ which has been discontinued and replaced by the new Replicator: http://store.makerbot.com/replicator-404.html

    it looks great your very talented i can see why your daughter is happy : )
