A while back, I remembered seeing a Han Solo in carbonite sculpture that caught my eye. It was made by a well known sign shop on the east coast and all I could think to myself was ” I could do that!”. Well, months went by, and I still never had the time to mess around with it. Then like usual, something popped up in the form of a prop we needed for the At The Movies series we put on at my church every summer. In the meetings, we ended up talking Star Wars and I knew it was my time to speak up.
Han in carbonite would be the perfect prop. So here it is.
I’ll be posting step by step pics of the process, so make sure you keep checking back. This is shaping up to be a fun one!!!!
Here is the 3D file we used for the carving. We used 18lb Precision Board and built the thickness via slices using Enroute Pro 5.1
The entire sliced model was carved on our Multicam 3000 series router using 1/2″, 1/4″, and 1/8″ Ball End mill router bits.
Han is now awaiting his final mounting on the box that will be sculpted to look like the movie carbonite prop.
Stay tuned for more progress pics!
