Tiny Santa swings through the tree branches to deliver presents to tiny siblings Keith and Kath who live in your Christmas Tree.
With the help of a candy cane, Santa manoveours through some tricky foliage to make sure every kid is not left without a present!
The heads of the two kids are actually edited 3D scans of our niece and nephew.
This is our first time working with bipeds in max to create human poses.
The printing of this Santa is quite tricky, supports are essential. We had a few issues of the print being knocked of its own supports and it took several tries to get a print.
I'll try and upload another version where the sack and the candy cane can be printed as separate objects. And perhaps an easier version of the two kids by splitting them in half.
We are still printing the two kids on the branch. Will post photos as soon as they are done.
XYZ Workshop is a creative hub for collaboration between different creative enterprises and a teaching platform for 3D printing technology to different interested groups, be it school kids or a person just interested realizing their ideas. We will be working with designers to show case their unique designs, to push the boundaries of desktop 3d printing.
