I recently attended the Midwestern Gaming Classic and it was a really great experience. While I was there, I came across a father/son duo, Artovision, that made really cool shadowbox art of classic games and Americana. I picked up a Mortal Kombat scene and decided to make a custom frame for it. This frame currently fits a 6in x 4.5in x.75in piece of art. There are a ton of guides on this site on how to make your own shadow box art so maybe this will strike a stroke of inspiration. You can use my file to scale accordingly and as a template for whatever. Features of this frame:
- Inscribed FATALITY on top part of frame and TOASTY! on bottom part
- Mortal Kombat dragon symbols on each side
- Two holes for nails for hanging
- One piece - artwork fits very snugly into the frame and is flat against the wall
Chose red because it's a primary color in the MK palette (including the abundance of blood from an uppercut)
- 3D Printer (I use an AnyCubic i3 Mega)
- Red PLA filament
- 2 small nails
- Small level
Step 1: Print the Frame
I used the following settings for the attached .stl in Cura for the print:
- Layer Height: .2
- Infill: 20%
- No Support
I would lay it flat, picture display down towards the print bed. Attached is the .obj file (.zip) for mods.
Step 2: Hang It!
There are two holes in the back of the frame for hanging.I used two small nails from a picture hanging kit. Make sure you level it!
