For years now I am trying to make a BJD (ball jointed dolls are very popular in certain cultgroups, especially in Asia) in the traditional manner (first sculpting, then putting in the joints, then molding and pouring).

A few months ago I was able to join in a Rapid Manufacturing project with a technological institute (TNO in The Netherlands) wich is aimed at deliviring a 3D printed model for the Dutch Design Week Contest upcoming october.

My 3D model is almost ready and will be printed in a few weeks. The whole model I'm developing together with TNO (who will also print the protorype for me) and will be displayed at the Dutch Design Week.

When the prototype is finished, I'm planning to use Shapeways as a deliveryshop (which I don't have yet due to the prototyping-stage of the project) for the 'unfinished' product.

Tell me what you think!
