    No worries the large ones will always be my main point of interest. But the nice thing about 3D printing is that you can try out different things pretty easily.

    I absolutely love all of your figures. You do great work. Would love to get my hands on a few.

    This is really amazing. Reading the entire thread in one sitting, I can see the progression and detail making quantum leaps. Technology coupled with human ingenuity really is amazing - we may be within a few years or dreaming it, developing it, and delivering it all in a few hours. That's really exciting.

    Thanks MOTU_Maniac and Hsss. The progression on detail is mostly to me having switched 3D modeling programs. The new one allow for both traditional poly modeling and the Zbrush style digital sculpting. This way I can quickly add textures like fur and hair to my figures. Now all I need is to wait for cheaper high resolution printers to bring out even more detail. :-)

    I'd love to see if you could print some of my stuff, but Not sure if they would require alot of clean up before doing so or if you could print them as is

    You could always just send me a file and I could check it out. Just send me a PM and we can discuss the details.

    Here is something a little differently. Me as an action figure. I did this figure as an exercise. I wanted to make a figure that has a less bulky physique compared to the muscle bound 80s style figures I usually do. I also wanted to make a figure that uses ball joints. Personally I am not a big fan of those but I had many commissions where clients wanted to have them in their figures. So this guy serves as a proof of concept that ball joints can be done. I still think they are a little bit less predictable and sturdy then other joints though. On the other hand they do allow for a great range of motion. This is certainly my most flexible figure yet. I also had a lot of requests for heads based on a real person's face. So I gave this figure my own face to show what can be done. The figure has over 35 points of articulation and is about 18 cm (7 inch) high. The figure was painted by me. I have to admit he is a lot slimmer and flexible then I am. :-)

    For not being a big and bulky figure that turned out nice.

    I was going to ask next for pictures of you in all the same positions, but I guess that is out of the question.

    Great work once again!

    Thanks! The next one will probably be bulky again. :-)

    All kidding aside, the 3D figures look great!

    These are looking better and better. Pay attention people, this is the future of action figures right here.

    Thanks again everyone. I am currently updating the lastest figure to make the ball joints sturdier. I will keep you all posted.

    Hi. Great work there, man. I am just about to buy me a 3D printer, but still have not decided which one. What's the model / brand on the one you possess? Also, do you print at 100 microns, or to a greater detail? It seems quite good for crafting this kind of figures... Thanks in advance,

    Thanks!
    I use a stratasys Mojo. http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers/idea-series/mojo It actually prints at a higher layer size then 100 microns. But the good thing about it is the sollutable support material. That really helps making relatively smooth hassle free prints. I found that a printer where you do not have to worry about support structures and their removal is a big plus.

    Thank you for taking the time, Hauke. You are so kind.

    It seems quite a different technology than what I have been researching. Finally, I am getting myself a Da Vinci 1.0 (which is a FFF ABS/ PLA extruding, 400 - 100 Micron resolution, printer) Hopefully it will arrive within a week more or so, and I am anxious to get some stuff done in there. Although you see the build up lines in the things you make even in the finest resolution, I have yet to try that ´acetone solution´ to get rid of them, once I am able to start my tryouts... If it is actually needed.

    I found out about photo-sensitive resin, and I wanted to get a Form 1 printer, but the initial investment was way too high to risk letting the printer end up being a coffee table, if I did not used it properly. Let´s see how this model turns off, once I get my paws on it.

    Again, beautiful work. You are a great artist, and your kindness marks you as a great person, too.

    I have to thank you for your kind words. The Form 1 seems to be an interesting printer but when it comes to sturdiness plastic printers are way better for action figures. I have been thinking about buying a resin printer at some point and use it for parts that require high detail like the head for example, but still use a plastic printer to make the joints. But that is something for the future. Let me know how your printer works out for you.

    Hey Hauke,
    Your figures look great! Any chance you could post your Dan Generiko figure files to Shapeways, or make purchase available on your website?

    These are my latest 3D printed custom figures. Their joints are a little bit different then my previous figures. I rely more on ball joints now that can simply be plugged into the sockets for the figure. The result is a much sturdier figure. I did not go super crazy with the articulation on these two but they can be posed quite well. On the other hand these guys are much more solid and feel a lot more like proper toys then all my previous figures.
    The story concept is that mankind has given up the polluted Earth to go for the stars but has left most of its mechanical servants behind. Eventually those AIs started to create their own societies. The more humanoid looking androids made for direct human interaction thought of themselves to be superior to the simple robots that were made for crude manual labor. So they enslaved them to do their bidding. Eventually some robots rebelled and build a refuge out in the wastelands. Now these robots fight to free their brethren that are still enslaved.
