Great collection of .stl files for your 3D printing projects. Join our enthusiasm for 3D printed marionettes. We have been lately working on more mechanical automata-oriented mechanics for our marionettes so stay tuned and subscribe to our mailing list. Let me know in case of any questions or technical requests. Petr Puppeteer !!! You can also have a look at the article "Basics about building (not only) 3D printed marionettes and what you can gain out of them."!!!
We have decided to release our collection of historical originals for sale and subsequent support of the non-profit organization PUP (Institute of Czech Puppetry - Puppet Uni Prague, z.ú.). Stories of antique marionettes are hidden inside them. They were all played in puppet theaters (nomadic or even stone). Antique marionettes represent a great piece of history that you can now have at home. All antique marionettes in this category are handmade in the traditional way and are in working order. Most of them date from the beginning of the 20th century and their birthplace is the Czech Republic. Their value is historical, artistic, and collectible. You can either have your new marionette sent home or lend it to the upcoming PUP museum. In case of interest, we are able to provide professional restoration.

Courses are running with the cooperation of PUP – Puppet University Prague (see also www.puppetuniversity.org)
