3D printed figurines are certainly one application for 3D printing that has gained traction recently and is proving to be hugely popular. Makies were one of the first that gained wider attention, but makers and hobbyists have contributed their share to this phenomenon, and a big driver for this is obviously open source communities and easy sharing of designs.
Industrial Designer Klim Kozinevich, who has been in the toy, design and entertainment industry for nearly 20 years, and is currently with Bigshot Toyworks, posted a fantastic project that they were working on with Stan Chow: a 3D printed Woody Allen figurine!
The figurine was sculpted digitally, then printed on an Objet 3D printer, and finally hand moulded, cast and painted. Have a look at some of the images below, its absolutely stunning work. The Woody Allen figurine is on display at Gallery 1988 in Santa Monica, so if you get a chance, go and have a look.[nggallery id=40]
