About Ghostbusters Gear

Greetings Patrons!

I am a designer and software developer with a background in architecture, professional 3D modeling software, and 3D printing. When I'm not running my professional digital design business, I create movie props as a hobby - especially props of the ghostbusting variety!

I will use Patreon funds to create and maintain the following types of content:

  • 3D printable model files (STL) that can be used with basic 3D printers such as the popular and affordable Ender 3.
  • Prop assembly instructions which are created as interactive 3D dashboards that can be viewed in a web browser
  • Exclusive 3D printable content and original designs for patrons including props, toys, and playsets
  • Exclusive electronics guides for things like Arduino controllers for patrons.
Additionally, I am pledging portions of my Patreon funds to benefit causes that I believe in - including charities benefiting children and families. You will note that the page has several goals outlining philanthropic funding goals.

What is the free stuff?
Now that several goals have been met, I am providing the base 3D printable STL files and instructions for free as public posts - Anyone can download and print these files under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License:
What exclusives do I get as a patron?
Patrons are enabling me to dedicate the time and materials for publishing new content. In addition to the freely available content, Patrons also get access to exclusive 3D print files, upgrades, electronics guides, notes, and early content releases.

Here are some of the things that Proton Charger patrons can access:



More about this Patreon...
In 2019, I created an Instagram account called @GhostbustersGear. I wanted a way to share pictures of the props I was making and help others to do the same. My custom designed 3D printed Proton Pack inspired by The Real Ghostbusters cartoon recently became widely viewed and circulated in the Ghostbusters fan community.

Recently, many of my followers have been asking me to provide 3D printable files, instructions, and other resources. It should come as no surprise that it takes time and money to create and maintain original, high-quality digital resources. Furthermore, I believe in respecting the intellectual property rights associated with the Ghostbusters - as a rule, I do not sell parts or take commercial commissions on unlicensed products based on the Ghostbusters.

I am looking forward to creating these resources with you!

Sincerely,
Nathan Miller
