we made a mock-up for a quirky brooch with MONOCIRCUS' own 3D printing machine. a little guy sitting on a little hill by a pool. for the first time, we tried creating the object with two colors and we intend to create more colors and more details before we actually launch it as an item in our store.

Sizes of each ring will be customized as per specified by each order. The photos here shows the sample components to one of our new designs, which will be launched in January 2012.

Here’s how to use the TAG.
Sling the TAG through the handle or strap of your luggage or bag.
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.

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 relatively
