Tap into the force of Luck with Chris “muckychris” Milnes’ 3D printed geeky Budai statues, which swaps the jelly bellied deity’s head with characters from Star Wars and other sci-fi franchises.

Forget 3D Printing, 3D Sketching Looks Awesome
3D printing is all the rage right now, and I’m mildly (read: dangerously) obsessed with it. It’s an awesome tool for design and engineering, which are both things that my brain likes to latch on to.
