Gheee! Are you seeing these? ARE. YOU. SEEING. THESE. This is not the exterior of the [insert name of random sci-fi ship or planet size weapon]. It’s a 3D printed array of sci-fi style diorama tiles that have more applications than Darth Vader’s cape.

The sci-fi diorama tiles by Roy Ang are 1/72 scale – each is 75mm x 75mm x 15mm (3″ x 3″ x 0.6″) and weigh approximately 80 grams. Given that it takes 1-2 hours to print, you could have a 10-foot section of wall covered in ONLY 1,280 hours. If you want a smaller area, say, YOUR FACE, you’re probably looking at 8-12 hours depending on resolution, the size of your mug and the complexity of your jowls. (I think I could model and machine a metal sci-fi mask in less time. Ahem.)

There are 14 different designs to choose from, but best of all, this provides the inspiration for so much more. Like making a sci-fi planting pot or a sci-fi beer can holder. HELLO! You can download these bad boys at MyMiniFactory. (Bonus: Check out Roy’s AT-AT Foot! 1/48 scale, which is perfect to embed in your wall to hang your jawa cosutume on. Utini!)
