Copper Electroplated Darth Vader 3D Print

Copper Darth Vader

Here you have it, folks! I successfully electroplated a 3D ABS plastic print with copper. Its my first attempt and I’m  rather pleased. I’ll have to keep tweaking my setup until my results improve and then finally I’ll plate with nickel. So far, Darth Vader is looking very stylish. Onward and upward!


This print took 14.5 hours to complete. The print had minor flaws but overall impressive print. A new duration record has been reached on my 3D Printer. 🙂 Click below for the image gallery.
