3D Printing

Be a Viking with 3D Printed Props from the History Channel's "Vikings"

The History Channel’s Irish-Canadian historical drama Vikings is now in its fourth season, treating fans to even more Norse raids on European towns.  Now, fans of the show can become even more immersed in the story of Ragnar Lothbrok, as he ascends to the Danish throne, as the History Channel, MyMiniFactory, and 3DBrooklyn team up to bring props from Vikings to their homes through 3D printing.

Vikings MyMiniFactory 3DBrooklyn 3D printing props

In the most recent season of the show, Vikings has actually used a 3D printer to make some of the props seen on screen.  Designed by 3DBrooklyn, the awesome firm behind a new line of filaments made from recycled snack bags and milk jugs, and hosted on MyMiniFactory, you can now 3D print these props at home.  So far, four of the props from the show are available for 3D printing, one for each season 4 episode aired so far: antler runes from episode one, a wooden boat from episode two, Erlendur’s ring from episode three, and Rollo’s armband from episode four.

If you don’t have your own 3D printer, but you still love Vikings, you still have a chance to win props 3D printed for you.  Every Friday, a new design will be made available for download and you’ll be able to enter a sweepstakes to win an item from an upcoming episode.  If that doesn’t make you want to pillage an English town, I don’t know what will.
