A 3D-Printed Overwatch Mace with Moving Parts

Cosplayer and propmaker Alina, a.k.a. Spoon, knows all about using 3D printing, Arduino, and other tech to make her costumes and props. In April, she was chosen as MatterHacker‘s Hacker of the Month for her use of LED effects and more in her builds. One of her most recent projects was a Brigitte costume from Overwatch. She 3D printed Brigitte’s mace and programmed it to unfold and spin, which you can see in this video compilation.

She explained on Instagram:

All the flaps are servo controlled and most of the pieces are painted pre assembly to cut down on tape time and ease assembly. Everything is 3D printed in ABS!

A few more of the inner tear down. It’s controlled by an RF remote and receivers (not pictured) running on arduino pro minis.

You can view a close-ups of the mace below, but visit Alina’s Instagram feed for more creative inspiration.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
