Hello Whovians and fellow hobbyists.
Welcome to the 3D Printing Doctor Who Project.
Since 2017, my fellow designers and I have been attempting to plug the gaps in the official toy line with FREE articulated models that you can download and print at home on your 3D printer (or via a 3D printing service), then paint, assemble, and proudly display on your shelf alongside the rest of your Doctor Who collectibles!
serves the dual purpose of cataloguing the over 250 action figures, props, and customizing parts we have created over the years, and providing resources and tools for anyone who wants to take a stab at creating figures themselves!
This project is a labor of love, but does come with a few caveats...
Templates will only remain available as long as licensed versions of figures do not exist.
This project exists to supplement the official toy range, not supplant it.
If Character Options announces their next wave of figures include a Quark, Alpha Centauri, or anything else we have worked on, that design will immediately be pulled from the line-up.
While it seems increasingly unlikely that we will ever see official figures for most of the monsters and aliens featured on this site, Character Options does occasionally surprise us. Anything they choose to release in an official capacity will undoubtedly be of higher quality than what you can produce at home, so the last thing we want to do is jeopardize their profitability or be accused of releasing "cheap bootleg knock-offs."
If a figure gets taken down for any reason, it should go without saying that we do not want anybody passing around copies of any files they might have downloaded before it was deleted.
I do allow some wiggle room here in the case of our guest artists (who are free to work on any subject they choose, but I reserve the right to not list creations I feel are duplicative on the project website), creating versions of figures that were commercially released in a different scale (ex: making a 5.5" figure of something that exists as an Eaglemoss figurine or the short-lived 3.75" range), customizing parts (ex: alternate head sculpts),
or other instances where the created work clearly differs from the official toy.
2) This site will stop sharing files if we catch anyone attempting to profit by selling figures based off these unlicensed designs on eBay, Etsy, or any other marketplace.
(And we are watching for this. Like a hawk.) This is a strictly not-for-profit fan art project and in no way endorsed or licensed by the BBC, Bad Wolf Productions, or Disney. Not selling our work helps protect us from overzealous lawyers out to protect their company's assets, but if some unscrupulous person starts cranking figures out on eBay, after they get served with a take-down notice, those same lawyers may set their sights on us next because a simple google search will reveal exactly where the designs originated from. As long as we all agree to play by the rules, expect to see brand new models shared every few weeks.
3) All models featured on this site are 100% *FREE* to download, but please do not post them to any other sites or platforms without permission.
Linking back to this website is fine, but I don't want to see the files posted anywhere that doesn't include our standard disclaimer about not manufacturing them for commercial use.
In addition to my own figures, we also have a remixes and guest designs section for models and props that have been contributed by other artists. While the same rules above apply to their work by default, I leave it up to the individual artists to decide how they feel about their designs being sold online.
Note that I *WILL NOT* sell or print figures for you, no matter how nicely you ask.
There are plenty of online print-to-order services you can use if you don't happen to own a printer. Please see the F.A.Q. section for the project's rules about accepting reimbursal if you intend to print items for someone else.
If you have technical questions about printing any of these figures that are not covered within the F.A.Q. section of this website, feel free to contact me via Facebook, Twitter, Mastodon, or Instagram, and I will do my best to answer you, time permitting.
