  6. 3D Printing Test : Elephant

    This is a test print of an elephant made by MONOCIRCUS' own 3D printing machine. 6 cm wide and 4 cm high in size. 3D printing techniques are being used worldwide to create a variety of products and prototypes. The machine MONOCIRCUS is using is a DIY kind of 3D printer of which all the components of the machine has to be assembled on our own. The printing process is similar to an inkjet printer, where melted plastic is build up layer and layer along the contours of the object. Each layer has a minimum thickness of 0.2mm so the resultant object can be quite finely made. The finger-print-like texture you see on the surface of this elephant sample is a result of the shifting of the machine head. Even though the machine is

  7. recommended: STUCK PULLOVER

    MONOCIRCUS' own series of STUCK pullovers for kids!
    These fleece pullovers are imported from the United States and the patches of fabrics have been sewn on by our team.
    These patches of fabrics are made in the same material as those typically used for stuffed plush toys. 
    The little 'components' have velcro attached to their backs, which can be stuck onto these patches and are detachable so you can play around and vary their positions.
    You can also choose to wear them without the 'components'.
    For these hoodless pullovers, the MONOCIRCUS logo has been silkscreen printed on the shoulder area at the back of the pullovers.

    The pullovers come in a single Size 3, for 2-3 year olds.
    In this picture below, this little guy here is almost turning 4, and the size is just

    Send us a drawing done by your child, and we will create a photo frame that is customized just for your family!

    With the advancement of digital photographic technology, we are able to take and record tons of photographs and videos with just a snap but somehow it is often hard to safekeep the spontaneous sketch or paper craft works done by our children.

    Taking a closer look at the spontaneous doodles by children, we more often than not discover the way they view and think about the world they see, and uncover their characteristic as an individual. We see it as ART. We hope to make it possible for you to keep a proper physical rec
