We are excited to report that our first mold design is officially in production. The manufacturer that we will be purchasing our equipment from will be building our first mold design for us. This mold is of our mascot, and will be used for our rewards for Kickstarter. We should have them done and delivered in a few weeks.
Here’s a sneak peak of what the mold will look like when it’s done (the test mold):
Negative Mold of 3d Mascot
Our master plan to complete our first round of funding just took a giant leap forward today. A very talented 3d modeler whom I know from the Visual Effects business was generous enough to help us move forward to reality. His name is Tadao Masuyama, and he helped bring our logo to the 3d world. Why would you turn your logo into a 3d model you ask? Well, if you’ve read a little bit on our blog, you would have noticed the word “3d” prop up a few times. Since our process is based on using 3d models to help fabricate our molds, what better way to give out rewards on our future kickstarter project (or other promotions for that matter) would be to give chocolate in the shape of our logo. In the case, the shape of our mascot. After all, he is basically the shape of a piece of chocolate already. So, it seemed like a perfect fit. Here’s a turntable of the final piece.
