Theme I
Shrunken head from the Jivaroan tribes of the Amazon? A replica of Walter Potters incredible Victorian taxidermeys? 3D model an interesting and strange curiosity to go in the MyMiniFactory cabinet. Printability is as vital as intrigue, please read the designing for 3D printing guide to give you some pointers.

Curiosity cabinet artifacts don’t have to be the dark and the macabre however, precious and rare objects also make for fantastic show pieces. Priceless jewellery pieces, weapons from unknown warriors, and ceramics from lost dynasties all welcome.

Theme II
Create an awesome Halloween costume prop. Something super scary and 100% printable. Zombie brain hat? Wearable witch nose? Let your imagination go wild!

We have created a blank mask template which can be downloaded and then modified in your software of choice, but also feel free to create a design from scratch. Check out our props and costume section if you need some inspiration.
