For my Senior Capstone I decided I wanted to try 3D modeling and printing toys, so I built a set of characters as part of a fake children’s media franchise.
Developing the Characters
As a kind of reflection of the media I consumed as a child (Power Rangers, Voltron, Sailor Moon, etc.) tried to make an ensemble cast of diverse backgrounds, personalities, and shape to cover the broadest possible demographic.
3D Modeling and Printing
This was my first time modeling for printing and my first time operating my own 3D printer. Calibration was a struggle, but eventually my printer started turning out smooth, detailed prints.
I developed a “website” in tandem with the action figures that was meant to provide backstory in the way a toy company would present it.
The Senior Show
I tried to make my space look like the room of a girl in her early teens. I guess it just looked like my room at that time. There was more pink, though.
