MatterThings 3D Prints Trophies for Canada China International Film Festival


MatterThings - 3D Printing took part in the Canada China International Film Festival (CCIFF) this year, by printing 13 trophies, to accompany the 13 awards being given out during the closing ceremony of the CCIFF on the 19th of September.

To celebrate the relationship between Canada and China, Dr. Miao Song along with the Canada China Art-Tech non-profit organization founded the CCIFF. Every year, the event takes place at Concordia University for the duration of 4 days. The goal of this festival is to share culture and values across both nations and reinforce the good relationship between the two nations.

Organizers of this event reached out to MatterThings - 3D Printing to commission the printing of 13 trophies, one of which to be presented to each of the nominated categories.

The Trophies

The trophies were completely designed by MatterThings to look exotic and atypical, with a featured hollow maple leaf, the logo of the CCIFF. The trophies were made of PLA and ColorFabb Bronze (Polylactic Acid) bio-plastic, a food safe material made from natural resources (corn starch). After 3D printing the trophies, MatterThings painted them with high-quality gold paint.
