Introduction - 3D Print Your Own Bath Bomb Molds

3D Printer Printing a bath bomb mold

3D printing your own bath bomb molds is a great way to save money and get creative with your bath bomb designs.

With a little bit of effort, you can easily create molds that are the exact size you want. And if they aren't, you can always reprint them as needed to make the perfect size. This is especially helpful if you aren’t sure what size you need or if you want a very specific size that isn’t for sale!

You can also print them in any color you want!

DIY 3D Printed Bath Bomb Molds in a variety of colors

The best part about 3D printing your own bath bomb molds is that you can print them on demand. No more waiting weeks for molds to come in the mail! Just print whatever mold you need when you need it. This is especially helpful if you're making bath bombs for a special occasion or need a specific mold in a hurry! 

Getting Started 

The first step is to find a 3D printer. There are many different models available, so it's important to do your research and choose one that meets your needs. 

We have collected a list of recommended printer models that we have used or are familiar with and feel confident can be setup and run with minimal hassle.  

Things to consider: 

  • What’s your budget? 
  • Do you want features like automatic bed leveling and filament runout detection?  
  • Is there anything you want to print besides bath bomb molds? 

Finding STLs to print 

If you’re just getting started finding good quality STL files that work can be a daunting task. A lot of STL designers don’t even print or test their designs, which causes frustration for makers who want to make bath bombs, not fight designs. 

Thankfully we have a few free mold designs to get you started! We print and test all of our designs ourselves, so we know they work and are easy to use.  

These designs are free to download and print for you own personal use. 

And once you get comfortable with printing your own molds, you can gain access to our entire STL library with our STL subscription and within hours have a printed copy of any of the designs we offer!
