3D Printed Model of Donald J. Trump Made into a Collectible Toy that you can Squeeze


Love him or hate him, now you can squeeze him - Donald J. Trump that is!  Breygent Marketing Inc. a market-leading manufacturer of premium collector cards and collectibles in North America had an idea to create a mega-head collectible toy of Donald J. Trump that you can squeeze.  MatterThings - 3D Printing helped bring their idea to life in a series of steps that included the 3D design, 3D print and painting of their prototype.

How was it done?

Step 1 - From Idea to 3D Design

First, our designer Alex took the idea and designed it in 3D.

Step 2 - From 3D Design to 3D Print

The 3D design was then exported into .STL format, so that it could be 3D printed on our FormLabs SLA 3D printer.  This type of 3D printer uses stereolithography technology in which Donald J. Trump was built layer by layer, from a liquid resin that hardens on contact with a laser light. This 3D printer is fantastic for building objects that require a high level of precision. It can 3D print up to 25 microns.

A micron is a unit of measure in the metric system equal to 1 millionth of a meter in length (about 39 millionths of an inch). To give you an idea, the average cross-section of a human hair is 50 microns, therefore, this machine can build each layer with half a human hair of precision. 

Step 3 - From 3D Print to Painting

Our paint artist, Konrad then painted the 3D printed model of Donald J. Trump to confirm the colour scheme. This prototype was now ready to be sent to make a mould so that many toys could be manufactured.

Step 4 - Production - Injection Moulding 

Injection moulding was then used to produce many of these mega-head collectible toys which is a manufacturing process by injecting material into a mould. In this case a new thermoplastic rubber and then filled with filtered water.

Step 5 - Packaging

Once the toys were ready they were sent for packaging in what you see as the final product in these images below (3” x 2”) - the Donald J. Trump Squeezeezs.  A fun squeezable collectible toy to relieve stress and a perfect way to commemorate the historic 2016 U.S. presidential election.
