3D-Printed Jabba the Hutt Piggy Bank (and a Chance to Win One!)

September 8, 2016

A while back I 3D scanned one of my unlicensed Jabba the Hutt ceramic figures so I could 3D print it (you can learn more about that in this video on YouTube). It recently occurred to me that this would make a perfect piggy bank, so I set about trying to convert the 3D model to something that would work as a bank.

I’m still learning how to do things related to 3D modeling, so it took a little while, but I think I managed to get a design that works well. The design is available for free on Thingiverse, but if you don’t have a printer you still have a chance to get one. I am running a little contest on YouTube in honor of passing the 1,000 subscriber mark where I will be giving two of these away. You just have to go to this video on YouTube and leave a comment to be entered in the drawing (which will end at midnight on Friday the 16th of September). You don’t have to be a subscriber to win, but it would be nice if you could subscribe. Good luck!
