How it works

First, the artists that we partner with, design and build digital models of the dogs in various poses. We then take these models and modify them for the 3D printing process. We then print them using our 3D printers using PLA plastic filament. The 3D printers work by melting the plastic filament and then extruding the liquid filament in layers 1-2 mm thick to complete the model. This can be a slow process and some of the statuettes can take days to print. You may be able to see some of the layers on the completed prints. The printed models are then cleaned up and finished by hand.

Because of how the process works, we are not able to match the patterns on some breeds that make them unique. However, if you wish the models can be painted afterward to match your dog. We suggest that you use a spray primer on the surface of the models prior to painting to prevent bleeding along the layer lines.
