This is a line of alien action figures made via 3D printing using my latest incarnation of ball joints. This not only made the figures a lot sturdier then previous 3D printed ones, it also meant I could reduce their size a little bit bringing them to 6 inch scale.  Furthermore since the ball joints can be plugged in I no longer have seams at the side of the figure. The figures were modelled in Modo and printed on a Stratasys Mojo. The figures are assembled via simple plugs and then hand painted by me.

Real life drone lifeguard.

In the last years I have been mostly working on 3D printed figures that clearly fell into the traditional action figure category. So I wanted to make something different again that felt more like a vinyl toy then a super articulated action figure. So here is Blazing Bubo. I have not much of a story for him yet. I just liked the concept of the suit. I can easily imagine making different colour versions of him or even making a team of different coloured owl warriors. The figure has 5 points of articulation.

A cool mobile phone holder! Maybe a cool set of book-ends also.

This took some experimentation - but have a snap-together design that is reliable enough for a kids' bracelet. Great Maker project, since the basic design stays the same, but kids can customize the parts.

I recently updated my self portrait figure with the new ball joints I am currently using for all my figures. The new joints have a couple of advantages:
- The figure is easier to assemble.
- All the joints are plug joints meaning there are no more seams at the side of the figure where the joints need to be encased.
- The joints are much sturdier.
I also fused the pelvis and the abs together. While this makes the figure a little bit less articulated it also makes it a lot less wobbly. In fact it is so sturdy now I was able to make a simple stop motion test with it:
