About AprilStormProps

Sales 4,045
On Etsy since 2014

Because there had to be a better way to make quality replica props.

It all started when I got ripped off trying to source a replica boba fett wrist rocket back in 2009 I ordered this from overseas trying to make a mandalorian costume for my son. When it arrived, the quality was terrible, it was heavy and worse still it was broken because lets face it, resin isnt the strongest material.

There had to be a way to make props at a reasonable price, the answer: Digital Fabrication (3D printing) I started using 3D printers to make my props back in 2013. Today my workshop has 9 printers. 3 Larger format, which are purpose built for prop making, and another two smaller commercial printers used for smaller detail prints.

But I dont just use 3D printers. I also have a large CNC machine which I can use to make larger props.
