Industrial Grade Toy Manufacturing -stable, reliable, fine and smooth

With the mature development of 3D printing technology, 3D printing technology has been used in more and more fields, especially in the fields of animation and game figures. With its unique advantages, 3D printing technology has subverted the figure industry pattern.

1. Production process

Traditional figure production: conceptual image design - overall shaping - detail carving - parting, mold turning (GK white mold) - grinding and correction - painting model - completion.

3D printing figure: Conceptual design (3D modeling) - 3D printing - grinding and engraving - parting, mold turning (GK white mold) - grinding and correction - painting model - completion.

The production of traditional figures requires multiple processes such as carving, grinding, painting and painting, which takes a long time and tests the creator's own skills, patience and experience. In addition, due to the characteristics of materials such as clay and clay, the hand-made prototypes are likely to have to be made from scratch if there is a 'big change' in the prototype. In contrast, the 3D printing process uses 3D computer 3D design and direct 3D printing of prototypes, which is significantly faster, and it is easy to modify the model structure to make the proportions more accurate, rather than relying only on the personal technical experience of the prototyper.

2. Making materials

The production of traditional hand-made shapes is to use carved oil clay (more used in China), American soil (expensive), stone powder clay (more used in Japan), putty (more used in Japan), AB soil, etc. , among them, putty and some low-quality carved oil sludge are highly toxic. Under the long-term contact of the prototype master, the toxic components will enter the human body through the skin and respiratory tract, causing serious harm to health.

There are two main forms of 3D printing. One is to use DLP/SLA light-curing equipment to print, and the production material is photosensitive resin, and the other is to use FDM equipment to print, and the production material is PLA. Due to precision problems, most of them are still based on resin materials. (Additional note: Photosensitive resin has the characteristics of fast curing, high molding accuracy, good surface effect, easy post-processing, etc., and is widely used in the field of figure making. It should be noted that photosensitive resin has odor and toxicity, and needs to be sealed. To prevent premature polymerization, light protection is required.)

The traditional hand-made craftsmanship based on pure hands is complicated and cumbersome, and the difficulty is far greater than that of general model making, which also leads to the high cost of traditional hand-made figures and cannot really enter the ordinary life of the public. The 3D printing technology replaces "artificial sculpture" with "digital printing", which greatly reshapes the hand-made industry. In the future, with the rapid development of the 3D printing industry and the maturation of the 3D digital figure production process, expensive figures will no longer be kept privately.
