The World of Warcraft group wanted to do a massive battle scene depicting over 10,000 unique game characters, where each figurine was a specific attendee's player character in the game. By devising a novel workflow and staffing up to meet the ambitious deadline, we were able to produce 12,000 unique 3D Model files and corresponding unique 3D Printed figurines within just THREE WEEKS!
The "World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth" installation won a Guinness World Record for Largest Video Game Diorama.
These one-of-a-kind geometric "honeycomb" masks were created based on original concepts from the show's talented Art Direction and Costume Design team.

Robert Downey Jr's production company is known for its annual client gift boxes, and for the 2016 run we got the call to make 500 pieces based off of his original 3D Scan data.
To start off, we 3D Printed one master part in High-Resolution Resin and then created several Silicone mold cavities. Hundreds of copies were then produced using a rotocasting method with different tinted colors chosen by Ironman himself. Each head twist-locks into a 3D Printed base with a podium which rises up inside the head cavity to hold an LED candle.

Ron Howard's son Reed had the great idea of surprising his dad with a custom chess set comprised of unique pieces modeled after characters and relics from his films over the decades. Pretty thoughtful, right?
Based on a compilation of frame stills from his filmography, Reed settled on a concept for Fiction vs. Non-Fiction, and we set out to design a full chess board of unique characters. You've got The Grinch, Tom Hanks from "Apollo 13," the mermaid from "Splash," the F-1 car from "Rush," and even the cocoon alien from -- you guessed it -- "Cocoon." Each piece was 3D Printed in High-Resolution Resin and then hand-painted in high detail.
After receiving this set, a second set was commissioned at 25% larger and instead of hand-painting, the pieces were metallic electroplated: one side Chrome, one side Gold.
