Mashup of Anna Statue

September 03, 2019


This was a mash-up of two models and materials to create a stamp with my niece’s name.

I started with this bust of Anna from the Disney movie Frozen, which I printed in Proto-Pasta’s Double Espresso Metallic Brown HTPLA.

I cropped a few layers off the bottom and replaced that with a simple cylinder.

For the base, I rendered my niece’s name TEAGAN in the Ice Kingdom font, which is similar to the font used in promotional material for the Frozen film.

This is easy with OpenSCAD

height=size / 8;

linear_extrude(height = height)
    text("TEAGAN", size = size, font = "IceKingdom");

Finally, I added the font STL to a flat cylinder along with some stars, all extruded to the same height. The model had to be mirrored in the x-axis so that the text is reversed. This is so that resulting stamp can be read left to right.

This was printed with NinjaFlex TPU using the LulzBot Small Layer 0.25mm Tool Head.


The HTPLA is just a beautiful material, although I wish I had used a blue or teal colour for this. The TPU is so cool! Actually bends quite a bit, but rubber would work better as I found that ink didn’t stick the the TPU as well. Still, a fun experiment

Just glued the two models together.
