KFC makes a pretty darn good commercial. We are proud -- nay, honored -- to have produced these little Col. Sanders Map Pin props.
Starting with a digital model captured from a 3D Scan of a KFC bobblehead toy, the miniature heads were 3D Printed, hand-painted, and small metal pins were inserted to complete the props.
See the commercial here.
A Col. Sanders bobblehead toy doll was 3D Scanned to capture a digital full-turn 3D model of the head, which was scaled down to 1cm in width.
A batch of miniature 1cm Col. Sanders heads were 3D Printed in a detailed smooth SLA Resin material, and metal pins were inserted into the bottom of the neck to create the "map pin" pieces.
The miniature were hand-painted to achieve the original Col. Sanders likeness, and given a protective coating for handling through multiple production takes.
SLA Resin material is ideal for accurate parts which need to have a smooth surface finish. This is a cost-effective solution for creating very smooth parts at any size.
