7 Featured 3D Printable Halloween Decorations in 2017

It has already been October. The Holiday Season is becoming soon. The First Festival coming soon is at the End of October. Yes, “Trick or Treat”. Tons of people love Halloween, no matter kids or kidults. Making Halloween treats, DIY Halloween costumes, masks, and decorations, and there is so many fun to make with Halloween Crafts.

You can get millions of ideas by searching on Pinterest. You may blow your mind with such a huge volume of image results. How does people’s creativity boost several times over the Halloween season? Perhaps thinking about ghosts and horrors can stimulate our creativity. Halloween allows us to imagine something weird and unusual. It also gives us an opportunity to think Irrationally out of the frame of our daily life. Are you really to enjoy DIY your own Halloween Crafts?

If not, there are seven featured 3D-printable Halloween Projects that we recommend for you. You won’t need to spend many efforts on making them. Because a 3D printer will do almost 95% of the modelling jobs for you. After printed, you are only required to paint colours or insert some LED lights to them. Easy!

Here are 7 featured items that can be easily 3D printed by everybody.

1. Cute Hug Me Ghost by gCreate

3D Printed Cute Hug Me Ghost

This is basically a shell model. You can insert some light, sound, or sensor components inside its hollow cavity. There is a lot of fun to create your own special effects.

For example, I used magnets to hang this ghost on the wall. This trick allows you to orient the model like a floating ghost.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.1 mm
  • No support is needed
  • Use brim to increase the adhesion between the bed and the thin shell

2. Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin with LED Lighting by Elproducts

3D printed Halloween Pumpkin

Similar to the ghost model, this pumpkin is also a shell model. One special design is that the eyes and mouth are carved out on the inside. It looks like a normal pumpkin outside but a devil face disappears when you put a light source inside.

The secret is to make use of the thinner wall on the eye and mouth areas for more light to pass through. Of course, you can make some LED module by yourself. I’d recommend you to buy some very cheap waterproof LED candles (http://bit.ly/2yL5c3D), thereby some Halloween Pumpkin Lamps floating on your pool. You should result in some ghost fire moving freely on the water.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.1 mm
  • No support is needed
  • Recommend to scale it down by 50%

3. Halloween creepy tree by JS-Studio

3D printed Halloween creepy tree

Different from the above models, this tree is a solid figure. But this is more challenging because of its details and hangover parts.

Surprisingly, no support is necessary. The upper jaw was printed with no obvious defects. Slightly fall off due to the gravity can be observed on the lower side of both arms. But it doesn’t matter for a tree, which has such a rough pattern on the skin. The defects look natural.

Only the fingers look horrible with ooze and losing some details. Despite, crafting a figure like this can be a nightmare if you don’t have without a 3D printer.

This Halloween tree model is good for testing the performance of your 3D printer. You can also learn about how to design complicated figures with minimum supports from this artwork.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.1 mm
  • 10% infill
  • No support is needed

4. Zipper Magnet by Sannyshine

3D printed Zipper Magnet

Do you feel scared? It might not. You can imagine that is a devil or zombie appearing from an extradimensional space. You can also remix it with some scary nail design on it.

But if you know about the friction or the film called “The Addams Family”, it should evoke your memory that there is a character – a disembodied hand, called Thing. If you don’t know, here is a video clip that I found (“The Best of Thing Addams”) on YouTube. I ready don’t know how Hollywood produced those special effects without CG and 3DCG at that time.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.1 mm
  • 10% infill
  • No support is needed

5. Grim Reaper by somesailor

3d printed Grim Reaper

If you want a horror figure, I’d recommend this Grim Reaper figure. Its 3D model consists of high-density meshes. You can find the details and the gypsum statue-like texture, even I scaled it down by 50%. You can print it in a large size. But I won’t because I feel the holes in its eyes are quite horrible.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.08 mm
  • 10% infill
  • No support is needed

6. Zombie tombstone by fstreff

3d printed Zombie tombstone

Have you bought Sony Xperia XZ1, the world’s first smartphones with a real-time 3D scanning camera? If you have, you can scan someone’s face with your XZ1 and then stitch his/her face to this funky model.

Print Settings:

  • Resolution: 0.1 mm
  • 10% infill
  • No support is needed

7. Haunted House! by markwheadon

3D printed Haunted House!

In case your 3D printer is slow or fail to print the quality as abovementioned, this is a quick solution for you. This ghost house looks cute. It should be a nice gift for kids. You can massively produce it with not much time by increasing the layer height of 0.2 mm (or even 0.3 mm). You can make a few deviations by scaling or mirroring the 3D model in your slicer.

Print settings:

  • Resolution: 0.2 mm
  • 10% infill
  • No support is needed
