I’ve documented the doll production approach up till now in the following posts – even though they are certain to dolls, you can apply the understanding to make your personal figures and wot not.
#Rapid Prototyping and You
#How To Mass Make Your Personal Merchandise
For those who cant be bothered to go by way of these posts, right here is a extremely very rough breakdown (skipping a few processes) of what you need to make your own dolls (or other items).
Use Google Sensei to discover how to use 3D application like I did – if you cant afford the value tag of 3D application then there are free of charge decent options like Blender.
In our case, we used ZBrush for the modeling and tweaking using 3D Max.
Prep information for 3D printing.
Print 3D Information.
Make silicon molds from 3D printed data.
Make wax clone from silicone mold.
Electroform the wax clone to make the copper mold for mass production.
Pour soft vinyl into the molds to make the doll parts.
Cut off flash and assemble doll.
Make optical eyes.
Do the makeup.
Play with Mirai.
Aim unlocked – proceed to boss level.
If you want to make your personal merchandise then commence consulting with Google Sensei – its totally free. Then once you are armed with expertise, you can use that to commence implementing your concepts.
If you want to generate your items in Japan then I will hook you up with the individuals that you want to know who can oversee the production for you. If you are confident in your language expertise and know enough about the production processes then I’ll introduce the factories to you.
If you dont have the cash to cover production then start off with what I did and work in a restaurant to save up. Stop giving oneself excuses and just do it.
