Get insights in the 3D modeling and printing process of famous Minion at CADENAS
Minion became one of the most liked and downloaded 3D CAD models at PARTcloud.net
On this photo we can see our CADENAS employee Stjepan Birtic modeling famous cartoon character Minion. It was published on PARTcloud.net and it became one of the most liked and downloaded models, so we decided to make him using 3D printing technology.
Minion is done. Yellow plastic was used considering yellow is his natural color and it will make next step much easier. Right now he looks pretty simple, but painting will make him more interesting.
Special enamel paint was applied using small paintbrush. Also, markers were used for some details, too. Correct paints were used for his pants, shoes, gloves, googles, eyes and hair having the original Minion 3D model published on PARTcloud as a model. Minion came to life! Multi-color 3D printers are able to print in several colors, so painting is not necessary and the whole procedure is very simple.
The task is done. We can see here our real 3D model in comparison with the rendered photo. Possibilities are unlimited and everything is up to your imagination and modeling knowledge. Our Minion is just a simple example of incredible 3D possibilities and how imagination can become reality. With just a little bit of effort, you can have a great toy and make your kid smile!
