FigurePrints provides 3D printed models of World of Warcraft characters based on each player’s own avatar. After the user chooses the desired character and equipment, the 3D model is printed, polished, and mailed.
FigurePrints recreate digital WoW characters as fully detailed 3D replicas according to each player’s distinct avatar using rapid prototyping machines that convert three dimensional computer models into physical objects. FigurePrints is first directed to the right character and realm, after which the company takes a snapshot of the character as he/she appears on Blizzard’s Armory website. Players are then given the option of outfitting the character with any of the gear that he/she currently possess and to pose the character in any way they want. The character is then 3D printed as a statue or bust. During the final pass FigurePrints may tweak the angle and position of the weapons and armor to make a stronger and more aesthetically pleasing final statue. They may also need to add additional support elements to make sure that the print is stable given the chosen gear and/or pose. Finally, the model is mailed to the customer.
FigurePrints provides also (limited batches) of 3D replicated pet characters familiar from World of Warcraft.
