Thor 2: The Dark World is in Cinemas as of today – and to celebrate the re-appearance of
Thor’s long manly viking hair Thor & Co once again, here’s a look at some creative genius from Thor fans…
3D Printed Thor’s Hammer (Mjolnir)
The guys over at REDICUBRICKS have designed and 3D printed a mini Mjolnir!
They’ve even gone so far as to add a weathered look to the paint job, and wrap a strip of leather around the handle to give it that extra realism. If only they could 3D print us a real-life Chris Hemsworth to go with it – there’s a niche in the market, right there.
For those of you not in the know, 3D printing is more and more available to us regular folks rather than just for commercial use. 3D printing works just like a regular inkjet printer – but uses layers of plastics, resins or even metals, ceramics and foodstuffs to build up a 3 dimensional ‘real’ product.
It has been used to make car parts, chocolates and even bikinis! Since 2011 3D printers have become readily available to the public rather than just commercial printers, with Maplin having one for sale for just under £700!
