Japanese anime is very popular all over the world. You’re not in the game if you haven’t watched a Japanese cartoon.
Emerging in early 20th century, anime has a stylization pattern of its own, with a powerful emotional energy to it. The characters follow the real human body proportions, although some of them might be deliberately disproportionate. The most common feature in these characters is the exaggerated eye size.
Conventions are held every year. Now, with the emergence of 3D printing, anime has gained fresh acknowledgment. Many artists compete in creating incredible anime statues for 3D printing.
We’ve rummaged through the Internet and found these 8 awesome anime 3D prints. Enjoy!
1. Anime Girl for 3D Printing
The Anime Girl 3D model immediately pops into your sight as you open our marketplace. It is something new for our audience and for us as well. We’re used to seeing bulky Mechs and fierce heroes. And the big-eyed girl stands out from the crowd in a good way.
2. 1/10 Scale Anime-Stylized Girl
This figurine was created for Tsunacon 2013 by Kaetimi. It shows beautiful body lines and intricate details. We definitely love the way all the ribbons and other small accessories look.

The fans of the series were not allowed to touch the 3D printed Momo, but they had the opportunity to stand next to her and take pictures.

7. Sailor Moon Silhouette
If you haven’t watched Sailor Moon when you were a kid, you lost half of your life. I remember the time when all of the girls were crazy about the anime character and all they did was inventing games that involved the storyline of Sailor Moon.
Bring back childhood memories by 3D printing Sailor Moon’s silhouette (). The model prints without support and it stands 3.5 inches tall.
Yay to 3D printing wonders!

If I was a kid now, this crescent wand for 3D printing would have been on my wish list. I mean, what girl on earth wouldn’t want to have the crescent wand? Perfect for cosplay, the wand can be painted whatever you like.
