    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

  4. recent project : Photo Frame

         
    we recently custom-made this photo frame based on the above original drawings sent to us by siblings, 
    Shyo, a 5 year-old-boy and Hina, a 9 year-old-girl.

     

    we are very glad that Shyo and Hina and their family were very happy to receive a unique and personalized photo frame as their Christmas present.

    this series of photo frames are great as gifts not only for kids but also for parents or grandparents to safekeep their beloved children and grandchildren's photos as well as drawings!

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 relatively
