The Cufflinks can be individually designed with a set out of my existing hats/helmets collection
: Cufflink Base + Minifig + choosen Hat/Helmet + Base with the Initial Letters of the customer.
This results in a big number of possible different and unique items
To get a printable result the usage of a formlabs printer will improve the design turnaround time a lot. After the first draft design details can be shared and discussed with the customer and can then be immediately tested and shown on a real 3d object.
If more expensive precious materials will be used for the final item the need for a proper prototyping is evident.
The finished item can then be uploaded to Shapeways to be printed in a precious or semprecious material (gold, silver, bronze ...) to ensure a unique and valuable item for the end customer.
Alternatively the end product can be used as statue, eardrop, keychain ...
