My new website for my 3D printing services is up: hauke-scheer.de/

Are you a small business in need of an action figure prototype?
Are you an artist who always wanted to turn a character you designed into an action figure?
Are you a collector who wants a truly unique figure for his collection?

Then check out my website and I can make your ideas come true.

3D printed action figures joints setup by hauke3000
3D printed action figures joints setup
Here is a little insight in how I make the face animation for the stop motion films. The joints are all balljoints that can simply pop out of the sockets. This makes it easy to swap parts for facial animation and animation of different hand gestures.

3D printed transforming robot - joint setup by hauke3000
3D printed transforming robot - joint setup

Here is the joint setup for the 3D printed transformable robot I used in my latest stop motion animation.

The modeling and rendering was done in Modo. The holes for the joints were created in Netfabb and are missing from the renders. The figures were printed on a Stratasys Mojo. The Figures were assembled and painted by hand.

Spacemen, Robots and Neanderthals

This is my second stop motion animation using my 3D printed action figures. Since I started using acetone to smooth my figures I wanted to make a new one to show the new nicer looking figures. I also bought new camera equipment that is less shaky allowing me to keep post processing of the pictures taken to a minimum. I did use Blu Tack on the feet to stabilize the figures and armatures for the flights, jumps and falls but other then that all you see here can actually be performed just with the joints of the figures.
Modeling Software: Modo
3D Printer: Stratasys Mojo

Hello, my name is Hauke!

I have been working as a 3D character designer for over ten years making characters for games, animations and advertising.
My best known personal work is an animated series about whales in giant exosuits called Mechawhales. mechawhales.com/
I also produce my own line of collector's figures via my company Deep Fried Figures. www.deepfriedfigures.com
My full portfolio can be seen on deviantART.
I specialize in creating highly articulated prototypes via 3D printing. I offer a full range of service - from designing and modeling a figure to printing and painting it.

3D Character Design Submissions
To ask for a commission send me an email to: hauke.scheer@t-online.de
Please be as detailed as possible about what kind of figure you want. The more accurate you are with your description the better I can calculate pricing for you.

Pricing
Since every character is different prices will be calculated on an individual basis. The modeling cost will be based on the level of detail and articulation of the model. Cost for test printing the models will be based on the actual material usage. Residents of the EU will have to pay 19% sales tax. You will receive all test printed models as well as an .stl file to print future models on your own.

Additional Information
- I only accept commissions for characters that are owned by my clients. Please do not ask me to make models of characters that are owned by a third party.
- 3D printed models have a rougher surface and are more fragile then mass produced action figures. Handle the model with care and expect some impurities in the print.
- For a highly articulated figure I recommend a size between 14 to 20 cm (6 to 8 inches). Smaller figures may end up being too fragile. Figures with fewer joints (4 to 6 joints) will work at smaller scales.
- 3D printed figures are not as flexible as mass produced figures made of PVC. Therefore flexible parts like capes or long clothes may hinder the articulation of a figure. I will try to find the best compromise between articulation and design but in some cases adjustments may have to be made.
- It usually takes 2-3 test prints to make the model perfect. The cost for material usage for all test prints will be included in the final price. I will try to keep the printing cost as low as possible. All printed models will be shipped to you.
- The model will be optimized to be printed on a Stratasys Mojo. Since the specifications for 3D printers can vary greatly it might not work as good on some other printers. I will optimize the model for one additional type of printer free of charge if you can provide me with the technical specifications.
- If you want me to paint the prototype I recommend printing it on a printer with a higher resolution first. Models printed on my printer can be painted fine but print lines and a rough structure will be visible. For painting models I recommend printing on Stratasys Objet printers.
- The models and stl. files will be shipped/send after final payment plus cost for shipping and handling are received. Please be also aware of taxes and custom fees in your country.

Are all your figures made with a 3D printer?

The articulated ones from recent years yes. Some older unarticulated ones were resin prototypes made in China.

A OK thanks. I'm asking because I'm making customs action figures and it would be easier for me if I could print them and then paint them. It is difficult to make the articulations work?

I guess that depends on how experienced you are at 3D modeling.
