Visiting fans have been able to interact with all the characters that have ever appeared in print or animation during this two-month show in Taipei, Taiwan.
SID Installation Art was commissioned by event organizer Remake Works Co., Ltd and One Piece Mugiwara Store Taiwan, to bring these characters to life using a Massivit 3D 1800 Pro 3D Printer.
Previously, SID Installation Art worked predominantly with Styrofoam and fiberglass to produce gaming and manga-related props. 3D printing has proven to be faster, with more creative possibilities, and capable of executing highly complex jobs in dramatically less time.
“3D printing has proven to be a real game-changer for us in terms of our overall turnaround time, the accuracy we’re able to achieve, the production size, and new possibilities for creative vision," said Hung Jui Chia, chief operation officer of SID Installation Art. "This means we can accept a greater volume of jobs - our Massivit 3D printer is in use 18 hours per day
“Creating props and scenic environments based on digital 3D models also brings us far greater design flexibility so we can propose and implement unique props and models."
