In past articles we have talked about what it will take to get 3D printing to go mainstream. One step in the right direction, would be the emergence of new applications which use 3D printing to get the general public interested in, and involved with tminockio-1he technology. One Thailand company called Minockio is trying to do just that.

“We believe an end-consumer product like ours can greatly help bring 3D printing to a much wider audience. A lot of people still have never heard about this technology, and very few people have touched and held an actual 3D printed item in their hands,” stated Teerapat Mahasukhon, from Minockio Co., Ltd

Minockio allows its customers to easily create figurines of themselves or a friend. The figurines could be described as half cartoon/half bobble head in appearance. We have seen other figurine customization applications in the past, but have to say that this is probably one of the easiest to use and understand interfaces yet. The system allows you to design your character, choosing important facial features, clothes, and even the stance you’d like your figurine to be printed in.

Once a figurine’s design is complete, customers can have it 3D printed out and shipped directly to their homes. Minockio uses a high performance inkjet powder-based 3D printer to create the finished product in full color. Because of the technology being used, the end product will cost quite a bit, when compared to action figures you’d buy at the store. The typical price for a 4 inch (approximate, depending or stance) figurine is 4500 Baut ($140). Minockio is running a sale, however, until June 30th which they are offering the service for just 3700 Baut ($114).

Once a design is submitted it will take approximately 15 days to ship. Minockio offers free shipping worldwide, and will replace any defective merchandise within two weeks of receiving it. Find out more about the Minockio platform at the the 3DPB.com forum thread created to discuss this article.  Check out the brief video below explaining the entire Minockio process:
