Smart Doll: How it's made?
Smart Doll: How it's made?

"Discovering that I could use 3D rapid prototyping to develop products ended up making much more sense than creating a physical sculpt out of clay for many reasons." - Danny Choo

By now, you\'ve must be overwhelmed from Eiji\'s arrival in Hobby Chan. Eiji, whom Danny Choo described as the engineering genius, is a good addition to the SMART dolls as a male counterpart. We can always admire the final product but the process of creating this masterpiece deserve its own tribute.

Eiji, along with his counterparts, are 100% made and assembled in Japan under the supervision of Danny Choo himself. You can read more about the production process from Danny\'s article here. But, a specific part that I\'d like to point out is Danny\'s constant appraisal for 3D printing as a tool for rapid prototyping. The 3D prints were then used as a reference for the finished mold products ready to be assembled.

What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a process of creating three dimensional model involving thin layers of strands combined. A 3D printer is a regular printer but with tons of awesomeness attached to it.

3D printing has revolutionized the way products are made. As an interior architect, I no longer need to physically sculpt my concept and can now conceptualise in a form of 3D modeling. 3D modelling can all be done on the computer. It is a different set of skill on its own - away from traditional sculpturing. Danny Choo had the right thought in mind to approach this mind-boggling technology. With a single click, your products are on your way. Found a mistake a long the way? No problem, easily modify the file to suit your needs.

"With 3D, we can not only check the actual size of the printed prototype but also increase the 3D model size by 5% before printing again to create the final molds."

- Danny Choo

The quote says it all. It is a quick, productive and an efficient way to develop a product.

The "Smart" in Smart Doll is no joke. Not only the finishing product blurs the line between sci-fi and reality, the production is extremely sophisticated. Please take a hard look on Danny\'s step by step production process on his blog. I am extremely impressed. He breaks away from the traditional warehouse manufacturing and dives into the future completely!

It is a great pleasure to have Eiji in Hobby Chan - and to see it in the flash!. By introducing Danny\'s smart doll here, it opens a new door to future techniques of manufacturing in my opinion. As a person who loves taking things apart, look forward to more manufacturing analysis in the future. Stay tuned!
