3D Printed Anime Figures: Best Sites & 40+ Top Free Files
When you think about it, it’s kind of crazy how huge anime is in the west. As a staple of the Japanese entertainment industry, it’s surprising just how popular it is with American and European audiences.
From Akira to Dragon Ball, Naruto to Pokémon, anime has its place in the hearts of many, regardless of where they’re from. And it’s always fun to celebrate that fandom in unique and fun ways.
3D printing anime toys, figurines, and collectibles is a cool way to express your love of your favorite show, manga, or even just anime in general.
There are so many awesome 3D printed anime projects out there that I couldn’t possibly get to them all, so here I’m going to show you where to find some of the best places to find STL files for anime, along with a few of my personal favorite prints.
Since I’m a huge anime fan, I’ll try not to skew the recommendations towards my own tastes too much, but I can’t promise to try very hard.
Why 3D Print Your Own Anime Things?
While there are stores and online marketplaces for any weeb to find their favorite anime, it’s cheaper and a lot more fun to 3D print your own anime toys and figurines.
Can’t find one particular character anywhere? Or maybe your favorite anime is too shadowed by the bigger shows to be stocked in your favorite store? 3D printing your own anime collectibles is a great way to ensure you get what you want at a fraction of the cost.
One of the best reasons to 3D print anime stuff is to put your own spins on already existing characters. Want a Pikachu dressed like Deadpool? Or maybe you want a super swole version of the electric mouse for some reason. 3D printing has got you covered.
Or why not print out Sasuke Uchiha as an Among Us character? You won’t find that in stores (at least not the ones I go to.)
With the right editing software, you can add your own touches on any anime 3D print. Give Krillin super Saiyan hair, reunite the Elric family, or have Luffy wield Zangetsu. The only limit is your imagination!
How to 3D Print Anime Figures
3D printing anime toys isn’t much different from other projects. Though naturally there are some things you should keep in mind for top results.
When printing anime characters and set pieces, you’re likely looking for something that seems to have stepped right out of the screen. For this kind of detailing, you’re better using a resin printer as they’re known for their higher resolution prints.
To avoid disappointment, make sure you’re using the highest quality materials and the best resolution possible. Unlike regular prints or parts, you’ll want a nice finish and professional-quality detail.
They may be cartoon characters, but few things are worse to the average anime fan than memorabilia that doesn’t quite match the source material.
Where Can I Find Anime STL Files?
Thingiverse is an awesome site filled with free STL files for 3D printing, so naturally it’s a great place to look for some anime figurines to print today.
As a community-driven space, Thingiverse is host to a lot of unique designs from creators eager to show off their work and see others put their own spins on their designs
If you’re a Ghibli fan then you’ll love the iconic Totoro family of My Neighbor fame, and the memorable Cat Bus that is still influencing pop culture today in things like Morgana’s bus transformation in 2016’s Persona 5.
If cats are your thing but My Neighbor Totoro isn’t, then check out this anime figure of the often-overlooked Korrin from the overwhelmingly famous Dragon Ball franchise.
Of course, talking about all the Dragon Ball 3D prints you can find on Thingiverse would be an article all its own. The long-running (and still going) series has seen dozens of characters, many with different forms and transformations that I couldn’t possibly cover here.
From SSJSS (later thankfully renamed SSJ Blue) Goku to Kid Buu, Freeza to Cell, and my personal favorite character Future Trunks, you’ll have no problem finding whatever Dragon Ball model you want in any striking anime pose like the ever-popular Kamehameha.
And yes, I spell Freeza without an I.
Needless to say, Thingiverse is a great resource for 3D printing anime figures. If your fandom is a mixed bag like mine, then you’ll find some really cool things to fit your eclectic tastes. Kakashi Pikachu, anyone?
Cults is another resource for finding excellent anime 3D prints. While many of them are paid for, the designers normally ask very little for their creations, often less than $3 depending on the file.
Cool 3D printed anime models range from Pokémon cookie cutters to add to any 3D printed cookie cutter collection, to some awesome models that look like they stepped from straight out of the manga like this amazing Naruto statue.
Speaking of Naruto, do you remember when Orochimaru was a legitimate threat? Those were good times. If you want to hark back to the days when the villain was actually scary, then this Orochimaru print complete with creepy pose is the perfect one for you.
If you prefer the heroes of the tale, then you may want to check out this design for a decorative piece that, if painted carefully, honors the first five Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Of course, you can always add to the design to feature the sixth and seventh too.
The absolute cutest anime 3D print I could find on Cults is this adorable Calcifer chibi print. Any fan of Howl’s Moving Castle will be happy to have this smart-alecky sentient flame decorating their home.
Call me basic, but my favorite Studio Ghibli creation is Spirited Away, so I’d be remiss not to mention this collection of Spirited Away characters from the beloved anime film. If you want something a little more unique, however, then you might find these accurate models for Yubaba’s loyal and weirdly talented minion heads.
MyMiniFactory is often my go-to for any project. Like Thingiverse, many of the options are free, but you can opt to pay for premium prints if you want something a little more professional.
The 3D printed anime figure and toy options are plentiful, and you should have no trouble finding your favorites here.
This Metalgarurumon was the first to jump out at me with a wave of nostalgia. Don’t worry, though, it’s plastic!
If you want something wearable, then why not try this Tobi mask on for size? It may not do any favors for your depth perception, but it will hide your identity for your nefarious schemes (though let’s be honest, who here didn’t figure out who Tobi really was years ahead of the reveal?)
There are also cool relief designs of 3D printed anime characters by designer Bonnet Sébastien, including Monkey D. Luffy, Gaara, Street Fighter’s Sagat, and even Aang!
If you have clear or translucent filaments, then I cannot recommend this Soul Eater moon lamp enough. It looks as awesome as it is creepy, and will be immediately recognizable to any fan of the action-packed madness of the anime.
Even if you don’t have any clear filaments, it still makes for a really cool 3D printed anime statue!
Etsy may not be the first place people think of when looking for STL anime files, but you’d be surprised at just how many designers have uploaded their projects for sale on the homemade wears library.
Luffy on the throne is particularly eye-catching, but there are also mass downloads for STL files for all your favorite anime like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach Attack on Titan, and even Akira. At only $10 for over 125GB of anime STL files, it’s a total steal!
The ancient myth of the nine-tailed fox has influenced and been captured in many anime over the years, from Pokémon’s Ninetails to Naruto’s Kurama. Any anime fan will immediately recognize the image of this mysterious kitsune, so why not 3D print your own awesome one from Etsy here?
While not related to any specific anime, the imagery is familiar to anyone who enjoys the more mythical aspects and influences of the genre.
But let’s not only focus on our male heroes. Fan service aside, plenty of anime and manga tales feature very strong and commanding female leads and characters that abandon the stereotype of a typical housewife still seen in plenty of western cartoons and shows today.
To celebrate these characters, you can find 3D printable anime figures of such heroines as Naruto’s legendarily strong Tsunade Senju and Bleach’s former Espada Tres Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck. If these powerful women aren’t enough, then I highly recommend you check out this amazing 3D print of San from the classic Ghibli film Princess Mononoke.
The sites we’ve discussed so far are all excellent places to find anime 3D prints, but they aren’t specifically aimed at satisfying all our nerdy needs. Fortunately, that’s where Gambody steps in to the rescue.
Gambody is the ideal site for statues and figurines to 3D print, many of which are of professional quality and look amazing! You have to pay a little more, but one look at this Pikachu vs. Charizard tableau or this chilling Neferpitou statue from Hunter x Hunter and you’ll agree that they’re worth the money.
My personal favorite is this Sage Naruto and Kurama scene, which looks amazing and makes for a great 3D printing project for any anime fan.
If you have specific anime 3D prints in mind, you may need to look for a while to find the exact model you want on Gambody, but I guarantee you’ll have a whale of a time looking at their top-quality models.
Honorable Mentions: Best 3D Printed Anime Figure Files
Now I did say I wouldn’t be able to cover all my favorite 3D printed anime toys and statues in one place, and that’s true. But here I’ll share some of my favorite prints from all over that cover some of my favorite anime in the coolest ways.
Naruto became so huge that it practically redefined the genre and is such a key player that it’s one of the legendary ‘Big Three’ along with One Piece and Bleach.
Because of this, you can find Naruto memorabilia anywhere. But I personally love this 3D printed Naruto keychain. It’s a simple and fun way to carry a piece of this groundbreaking anime with you. And hey, why not check out some other cool 3D printed keychains while you’re at it?
3D printing for cosplay is a really fun way to dress up as your favorite character for conventions, parties, or just for the heck of it! It won’t break the bank and lets you have your own take on the way you step into your anime hero’s shoes.
Tite Kubo’s popular series Bleach is finally making an anime comeback this year with the long-awaited adaptation of the Thousand Year Blood War arc, so there’s never been a better time to celebrate its hero in all his forms. That’s why this rendition of Ichigo’s terrifying hollow mask is one of my favorites.
I also love this hand mouth if you want to make a big bang as the Uchiha-hating Akatsuki artist Deidara (that wasn’t the inspiration for it, it’s just the first thing I thought of!) Or you could live the Disastrous Life of Saiki K, in which case these simple antennae prints are an absolute must!
These are just a few of my personal favorites, but don’t think the buck stops there. There are tons of 3D printed cosplay options to give your next outfit a real kick!
Phantomhive Heirloom Ring
I was debating simply mentioning this under cosplay, but then I realized you can wear this wherever you want!
My fellow fans of the dark and compelling series Black Butler will easily recognize the Earl Ciel Phantomhive’s heirloom ring, which you can 3D print here and cherish as carefully as Ciel himself does in his usual stoic way.
Togepi Egg Cup
While the honor of the first ever Gen II Pokémon to feature in the anime technically goes to Ho-Oh, Togepi made waves back in the day as an introduction to the franchise’s near future. But mainly it was just really really cute.
I can’t help but love this 3D printed Togepi egg cup that uses the half-hatched design in a fun and clever way! Just don’t think too hard about the fact that you’re sort of eating Togepi, okay?
Can I 3D print anime figures?
Yes! Anime figures are just as easy and fun to 3D print as any figurine or toy.
Where can I find anime 3D prints?
Anime 3D prints can be found on any 3D printing resource site like Cults 3D, MyMiniFactory, and Gambody.
How do you make 3D anime figures?
After downloading the STL file, you can tweak the design as you like and then send it to 3D print via your 3D printer – or use a 3D printing service if you don’t have one. For intricate coloring, you will need to paint once printing is complete.

Phrozen Review: Resin 3D Printers
Taiwanese company Phrozen was founded in 2016 by 3D printing enthusiasts and until recently was unknown to a wide range of buyers, until in 2019 it held a very successful crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for release of a new printer model - Phrozen Transform. During this campaign, more than half a million dollars were raised from 139 makers around the world and, despite some delays, already in March 2020, all buyers received the long-awaited printers.
For less than $2000, users got a desktop printer with a huge build area. This was a breakthrough for the Phrozen business. In parallel, Phrozen was the first to bring to market a printer with a 4K LCD display, which also became a trend in photopolymer 3D printing.
Today, Phrozen leads the budget photopolymer 3D printer market primarily due to higher levels of R&D and active innovation. And it is already obvious that due to the lack of production capacity, it is not able to meet the rush demand for its products. However, despite numerous delays and high shipping costs from Taiwan, buyers around the world are ready to wait for Phrozen equipment. After all, by buying it, they can get a unique product that is not represented in the line of other manufacturers. Here, as in an advertising stamp: "With all the wealth of choice, there is no other alternative."
Phrozen printer range
Well, now let's take a closer look at the Phrozen product portfolio, which can be conditionally divided into 3 lines. First, we included the Sonic Mini 4K and Sonic Mighty 4K printers. Who are these models for? First of all, for creators of miniatures, animators, modelers, cosplayers and other people who are passionate about their hobbies. Structurally, these devices differ only in the size of the working chamber, the Mini uses a 6 ”display, and the Mighty 9,3”. But at the same time, the Mini 4K model has an XY resolution of 35 microns, while the Mighty 4K has 52 microns, and the print quality of detailed elements is correspondingly better on the Mini 4K. But the maximum model size or the maximum number of models that can be printed at the same time is significantly larger in Mighty 4K. However, both printers do a great job with a variety of tasks.
The second line can be called professional. Shown here are Sonic 4K and Sonic XL 4K . These printers are primarily used in dentistry and jewelry making. How do they differ from the initial line of Phrozen printers? In these models, everything is aimed at increasing reliability, and, accordingly, performance. A metal body with a hinged lid, improved Z-axis rails with a smoother platform lift, aluminum print trays and other features allow users to use these printers non-stop. The models also differ only in size. Sonic 4K uses a 6.1" matrix, while its older brother uses 8.9". This means that the resolution in Sonic 4K is lower - 35 microns, and the quality of detailed models is higher. But Sonic XL 4K takes its size, which is useful for printing large models or a large number of them.
Well, the last line consists of one model - Phrozen Transform, which comes in two versions - Transform Standard and Fast . Outwardly, they are no different. The Standard version has a 4K LCD display, and the Fast version has a Mono 4K LCD display, which allows you to significantly speed up the printing process, which is especially important for large-sized models, such as architectural ones. Printing can take days, and the ability to speed up results is highly appreciated by many customers. Also, these printers are used for mass printing of small products, but it should be borne in mind that, given the large size of the matrix, the XY resolution in them will be 76 microns. This may not be enough for processing small detailed models (the effect of blurring of small elements is likely).
Now let's look at the most popular tasks for Phrozen photopolymer 3D printers.
Creation of miniatures on its own original drawings for the sale of games, series, comics, films and anime
Creation of accessories and cosplayers for cosplayers
Prototyping in various areas
9000 9000 9000 9 its aspects
In order to achieve the highest quality photopolymer 3D printing results, special attention must be paid to the post-processing of models and the use of high-quality photopolymer resins. Printed models must be washed in alcohol or water (depending on the type of resin) and then illuminated in an ultraviolet chamber. For these purposes, Phrozen produces 3 types of UV chambers, which differ in size. Choose a camera based on the size of your 3D printer. To date, 3 models are available: Cure V2, Luna and XL.
Phrozen resins are suitable for most 405 nm photopolymer 3D printers. The line includes standard resins, flexible, reinforced, 4K and many others interesting in terms of their characteristics and purpose.
In summary, Phrozen's ecosystem of printers, materials, post-processing hardware and software enables users to effectively use 3D printing. The Phrozen line completely covers the existing demand for photopolymer 3D printers and offers models for various tasks in affordable price categories.
