Files for custom parts?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey everyone- I'm new to the forums here and I have a question. I have two friends that have gotten 3D printers and both have sId they'd be happy to print things for me like heads, accessories, and such, but I don't know where to find the files. Can anyone help me with this? Someone has told me thingiverse, but I don't know how to navigate it. I'd really appreciate any help here. Thanks!!!

Thanks. Now for the really dumb question. Say I want a head for a Johnny Thunder action figure. I'm pretty sure I can't put in "Johnny Thunder action figure head" in the search bar. How would you recommend wording the search. I could use any number of generic heads for someone like him, but when I try "action figure heads" I rarely actually GET action figure heads. Sorry to be such a noob, but I've never had this option before in all the years I've been customizing.

You really don't need the "action figure" portion of your search. If your friends know any thing about printing, they should be able to splice and resize any model into the size you need.

For example, I wanted a Batman Who Laughs head, so I got a model bust, spliced the head from the model, resized, and then printed.

Just send them a link to whatever you want to download so they can see if they can print it. is a search engine that searches a few popular sites for models.
