Final Touches On Action Figures Using MakerBot
We had the great fortune of being situated right next to DeviantArt at Comic-Con for the past several days, so an extra wave of great artists found their way over to our booth. It turns out there is a great collection of 3D art in that community.
And check this out, at least one person is actively using a MakerBot for some original toy design.
The artist, ~bohnded, writes that this is his own re-imagined series of figures, based on G.I. Joe Sigma 6 bodies, using Marvel’s Micronauts as inspiration. These figures are 8″ tall, more than twice the size of the 3.75″ figures of the earlier toy series.
~Bohnded has used the web-based design system Tinkercad to design the add-ons like armor elements, and then made them on his MakerBot Thing-O-Matic. Nice work!
