When Disney’s Frozen came out three years ago, millions of children and adults fell in love with Olaf, the goofy, buck-toothed snowman who takes place to be obsessed with summer. Olaf is in addition a talked about character in Disney Infinity, an action-adventure video game which synchronizes physical, collectible figurines of famous Disney characters with the game system to unlock special content. Now, a special ‘behind the scenes’ video of Disney’s Boxed series reveals the entire system of creating of a 3D printed Olaf Disney Infinity Figure, of 2D concept art, to 3D printing, to its final boxing.

The 2/12 minute long Making of an Infinity Figure video is a excellent insider’s appear into only how much care and attention to additional detail goes into each 3D printed Disney Infinity figure—particularly at the level of 3D sculpting in ZBrush by Pixologic, and 3D printing via high-precision SLA 3D printing innovation.
The initially step in the creation of a Disney Infinity figure is creating the 2D sketch. At this stage, concept artists must carefully adapt the original turn it into of the character to the Infinity game’s iconic computer-animated appear.

Once the flat, 2D concept is fish, ZBrush 3D sculpting artist Shane Olson swoops in to alter it into a full, 3D rendering of the character which can walk, talk and move only like in the film. For Olaf, which intended recreating his wide, toothy smile and wobbly, clown-like walk. This 3D rendering can be utilized both to turn it into the in-game character, and as a digital version to 3D print the actual Disney Infinity figurine.

The upcoming stop on this behind the scenes video tour is the 3D Printing Room, where Olson’s 3D version of Olaf truly comes to life, emerging as a physical 3D object of a pool of murky grey goo. Of course, 3D printing enthusiasts can understand which which ‘grey goo’ is in fact the resin utilized in SLA (stereolithography) 3D printing. In this system, a UV laser draws a pre-programmed turn it into into the surface of a vat of photopolymer resin, cavia the resin to solidify one layer at a time.

SLA 3D printing is widely best known as being additional exact and accurate than FDM 3D printing, making high-resolution objects with a much finer level of additional detail. This precision can unquestionably be seen on the 3D printed Olaf in Disney’s video, whose skinny twig-like arms have been return it intod with awe-inspiring accuracy.
The upcoming steps are to carefully remove the assist structures, and sand down any rocky edges, seams or blemishes preceding priming and building the different types of 3D printed parts. Now, our 3D printed Olaf is eager to be painted. The video shows talented artists carefully hand painting each exact additional detail, of his expressive eyebrows to a small purple flower which is attached to the base. The attention to additional detail is truly astonishing, but we wouldn’t assume anything less of Disney at this point.

Finally, assembled, painted, and programmed, the video shows our 3D printed Olaf placed onto the game console and magically transported directly into the Disney Infinity game onscreen. It is been really the system, getting of 2D concept to 3D printed version, to 3D video game character—but which’s all in a regular day’s work for your average Disney Infinity figurine.

The Disney Boxed ‘making of’ video gives a few excellent insight into how beloved Disney characters are brockyt to life via 3D versioning and 3D printing innovation. Check it out in full below:
