I don’t know about you guys, but I consider myself a huge 3D printing advocate. 3D printers are revolutionary and beneficial in multiple fields from prosthetics, to automotive parts, and even working organs. On top of that, 3D printers have the ability to create some epic, one-of-a-kind items like this Ocarina of Time hookshot replica.
Built by 3D Central, this replica is made out of ABS plastic. For those of you that don’t know, that’s the same kind of plastic used to build Lego toys! It’s roughly ten and a half inches long and four and a half inches wide at the grip. You can currently purchase it for $33, but be sure to take a look at the listing for more details.
Honestly, I love the details in this prop. Something about the way 3D printers shape plastic items makes it look like it came directly out of the game. 3D Central also builds Master Sword replicas, as well as working ocarinas inspired by the Ocarina of Time. Additionally, aside from Zelda, they sell 3D printed replicas from many series including Steven Universe, Rick and Morty, and Harry Potter.
Here’s another reason why I love the 3D printing community so much: many 3D printable items and designs can easily be obtained on the internet for free. It is a community that takes pride in spreading ideas for everyone to enjoy. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can build one of these hookshots yourself! You can check out the instructions to do so here.
Be sure to take a look at 3D Central’s Facebook page for more content, if you’re interested. What do you guys think of this replica? Have you built anything through a 3D printer before? Let us know in the comments, we’d love to hear.
