Coconut Palm Tree Tutorial - Model Scenery


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response 😉)


Sometimes the fastest way of making stunning scenery isn’t always the cheapest or easiest, but with the right tools it’s amazing what you can make.

The coconut palm trees I make in this video are made with the assistance of the Brother Scan N Cut die cutting machine, an absolute must when it comes to creating these fantastic looking palm leaves. The whole process is very easy and once you put a bunch of these palms together in your scene they will surely grab the attention of any onlookers.

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3D printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3D printer files are designed for resin 3D printers, trying to print them using a filament 3D printer may not be possible!

But in any case, I hope you enjoy the extra content.
