Step 2: 3D Print

We send our model to Shapeways, a company specialized in 3D printing. We used the White, strong & flexible material. The printed parts suffer details loss and have visible layers of the print.

We then build the doll with the elastics to test the jointing and correct the pieces with Milliput if there is a need to. We sometime have to modify the part digitally and print it again if it suffers a major problem.
