Slowly Entering The 21st Century (a good 23 years after everybody else!)


Invested in a 3-D scanner & printer - Don't worry, I'm not forsaking metal castings, if there's a place where both can exist together, this is it...... Slowly but surely getting the hang of the 3-D printer, the better I get at it, the more my mind is blown, both from the fact that I'm mastering it, but more-so, from the technology itself......This (some file I downloaded from the web, to test the printer's capabilities) was printed in one piece, and that's exactly how smooth it comes out of the printer, all I did was snip off the supports.....









If this was a simpler figure, and I was using it for a mold pattern, to eventually make them in metal, I could just go from printer to mold making, with no real clean-up work at all....There's literally NO way humanly possible I could capture all that detail in metal, not to mention the fact, that this would have to be cast in about a dozen separate pieces & epoxied together....the filing time alone, would be stupendous..... REALLY starting to dig this technology......Somehow, I know my father would be grumbling about it, but deep down, he'd be just as impressed (if not more than I am)... Again, I'd like to stress that I believe this is a logical extension of our core figure business, and will come in handy for prototyping, etc, and NOT selling out our past, which I strive to maintain.....

3D printing is also very helpful for prewar parts that do not exists any more also. Can not wait to see what new items will be available.

That is impressive! Hope this new technology, and your new place, works out for you. I'd like to see that Pinter in action, and how you go about making molds for future metal figures with them. Do you offer tours?
