The FAN ART Model Great Paint Off

After a ton of planning and coordination, we are ready to launch our first FAN ART model painting competition! (Yay!)

But first, we would like to give a special thanks to you, as, after all, thanks to your fantastic fellowship and support, and that of the other members of this wonderful community, this printing obsession is possible. So, THANK YOU!!!

Now, let us explain what the FAN ART category is about: This category includes anything related to characters from movies, anime, series, video games, comics, etc. For example, it includes Mario Bros, Pokemon, Evangelion, Sonic the Hedgehog, Overwatch, League of Legends, and anything else you can find on Printed Obessesion’s page on Thangs 3D!

So, get your paints & painting station prepped, calibrate your 3D printer, warm your painting hand, and (most importantly) choose your favorite Printed Obsession FAN ART models.

Select your desired PO STL file and get the printing started!
