When the opportunity arises to earn ‘husband points’ I am usually smart enough to heed the call. Over the weekend I was offered one of those opportunities, and unlike the usual DIY, or housework related requests, this one was fun! My Wife runs a Brownie unit (Girl Scouts) and had planned on running a Harry Potter themed evening for the girls. Consequently, yours truly was duly volunteered to make some props. And as I’m trying to improve my 3D modelling skills I decided that I should make a Galleon Coin 3D model, to go with the more common Harry Potter props.

Now you’re all caught up with my husbanding tip of the week, let’s get down to business. I designed the Galleon Coin 3D Model in Fusion 360. This is a modelling package that I’m really starting to enjoy. Like any complex software, the learning curve is steep. But I’ve just completed my 30-day free trial and I’m really starting to get to grips with the philosophy of the program. For the record, I signed up for a year. At the risk of going off topic, the subscription model for software is getting out of hand. As a creative, I am paying around £200 per month in software subscriptions. It’s getting to the point where I will no longer be able to justify further software investments. Software publishers take note!

If you’ve suffered through my soap-box rant in the hope that this blog will swing wildly back towards the point, then you’re in luck. I believe in openly sharing as much content as I can, so if you would like to 3D print your own Harry Potter coins then you can download the Galleon Coin 3D Model right here. The model has been designed with normal desktop 3D printers in mind. The model has a minimum layer height of 0.2mm, so the galleon coin 3D model should print well on most printers.

Next time on the Prop Up Shop blog for the permanently bewildered I ask the question: can you 3D print hope?

Skyrim Daggers Project & Skyrim Dagger Templates

Prop Builder, model husband.

I’ve been making things since I was old enough to pronounce Lego. Consequently my maker life has been spent constructing, kit-bashing and scratch-building anything and everything that has taken my fancy. After dedicating my time to Wargaming, Model  Armour & Railways, I stumbled across what has now become an obsession – Prop building.
