3D Print Xenomorph Keychain
Today I'm going to walk you through you how we finish up a 3D printed xenomorph alien head keychain and get it all ready for a sci-fi, horror lover!
Where we left off on WIP Wednesday...
We left off with a successful print, getting 8 xenomorph alien heads printed in a single job! Yay!
Free the Beasts
Now we need to peel these cute, terrifying guys off the base of support. Gently we work one free of the float (bottom platform).
Then we remove the supports that printed to hold up the chin and back of the head.
Smoothing it Out
Now we move onto perfecting that one special little guy, smoothing out any little bumps under the chin or head with a small file.
We also clean out notch where the chain will be inserted.
Go Go Gadget Magnifying Glasses
With some sexy magnifying glasses on, tweezers in hand and some super glue, the keychain is inserted and dried to super strength!
How do we get that glossy sheen across the finished xenomorph keychains? ACID,,,or more correctly, acetone! 3 seconds is all it takes!
Hang for only a few moments and it's ready for the final chain attachment!
Fierce & Finished!
With the final chain attached, this glow-in-the-dark xenomorph keychain is all ready to scare off anything that tries to take your keys!
Of course we also print them in original terrifying black alien keychains as well!
I'd love to hear what you think!
