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.

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.

Hey there! Really impressed by your work. I'm also an aspiring toy designer and was wondering where did you learn to design all of those articulated joints and features? Did you take classes or just figure it out on your own?

Hi! I have made 3D models for animation before. So I already had a good grasp of making models that would require to move. The rest was learning by doing and looking at existing action figures.

Thanks for the fav! Love your stuff mate - what distance do you commonly give to joints so that they move nice and smoothly? (not too loose and not to stiff)

Thanks!
