One of the most exciting aspects of this project, is the work that goes into the creation of every Gran'pa pose. The 3D printing medium is a very new technology, and a crucial factor in getting real-life Gran'pa to look identical to his miniature avatar replicas. Every single pose of Gran'pa was created based on photos from the real man.
In short, it takes about 10-12 hours of modeling/printing/hand-painting in order to create a single Gran'pa pose. The photos below detail the process.
The Gran'pa models are created using the program Zbrush, and then 3D printed on a high quality professional Objet printer.
