How are the miniatures made?
We shoot high-powered lasers at a vat of liquid resin, out of which a miniature version of you rises up like the T-1000 in Terminator 2.
Seriously, that's really how we do it.
All of our miniatures are made using a 3D printing process called stereolithography. This technology allows us manufacture miniatures in extremely high resolution, capturing subtle facial details and enabling creation the miniature that will actually look like you.
What are they made of?
All of our miniatures are currently made out of photopolymer resin, which is a peach-colored liquid that turns rock solid when exposed to light.
Our standard model resin is a formula based on recent advances made in the dental printing industry, combining extreme accuracy (±35 μm) with serious durability. What this means is that your miniature has a shockingly detailed face, but is durable enough to survive your next game of Dungeons & Dragons.
We will be introducing new materials such as polished metal and flexible plastic in the near future, along with full color photo-realistic 3D printing.
