This couple had a life-size double torso cast done by us for their home. She had the idea to make some miniatures of their cast as keyrings for his next birthday. We used our laser scanner to render the full size cast into the computer. We then reduced the scale to output the file to one of our 3D printers to create a physical miniature.
From this tiny version we created a mould to send to the foundry we use specifically for miniatures. They reproduced it in bronze using the lost wax process. All that remained was to source the keyring ends and voila!
