You Could Always Print Your Own Bravely Default Figurines

Bravely Default's official Twitter account recently uploaded some Agnes Oblige figurines that were apparently done as a 3D printer test. They are somewhat rough. But if this one was finished and coated, it'd look pretty nice, I reckon.

Bravely Default is coming to Europe later this year. It'll be out in North America in 2014.

    Pretty awesome if all the colours are done during a single printing process rather than several pieces, changing the plastic used and gluing them together, i wonder what printer it was made with?

      Looks like a form of coloured sandstone printing that Shapeways uses

      Here is an example. A UV coordinate configured 3d Mesh and its 2D texture are provided, and their systems can print it in RGB colours. A bit fragile, but neat.

        Thanks, was hoping that it wasn't Shapeways and was something new in the household range, its a great machine they have but i like to follow the progress in affordable at home printing, i might have to look into using them if my friend gives up on building the one he bought so i can test quality.

      That kind of powdery finish it has suggests this is produced with a SLS machine. It fires a laser into a bed of polymer powder to build up the model. The resolution is much finer than you get in household 3D printing stuff (which extrudes layers of melted polymer through a print head), can do colors and handle overhanging pieces and the curves are smoother but it has that sort of sandpapery look.

      I think the SLS stuff is getting closer to being viable for owning at home but they're still several thousand dollars I think, plus the materials cost more than buying the spools of ABS plastic that the cheaper home-oriented extrusion printers use.
