The FIFA World Cup 2018 has come to a glorious end in Moscow as France has made history and took home the trophy for the second time since 1998. While the world is falling over the game that happens once every four years, it was no surprise that every national team tried the whole bag of tricks only to claim the almighty world cup trophy and bring home the nation’s pride along with the cheers and chants of jubilant that could last a century.
In the event of the universal sport that unites and brings people around the world together to celebrate teamwork and triumph regardless of skin colour, nationality, races and religions, we did not want to miss the boat to relive the spirit in our team.
A football player can never pull off a game without each imperative teammate playing different roles in the field. At IME, we cherish team spirit and togetherness too as a driving force to get ahead and score in all fields we are specialising in.
A futsal game was just in time and perfect for the season of FIFA World Cup. It was not a common occurrence that we teamed up against other team which was also made up of our own. However we believed sometimes a good game brings us together even closer and better.
At the game, fatigue and weariness can never kill our spirits as we play a number of rounds just to pave our way to the final and claim our very own World Cup trophy – a 3D-printed FIFA World Cup Trophy replica.
It was a work of art that sent us chills. All kudos to our team for crafting the trophy and bringing it to life!
Check out some of the facts and let’s walk through the process of creating the 3D-printed trophy.
|Structure||:||Assembled from 3 parts – the globe, the body, and the base.|
|:||The globe; 10 hours
The body; 14 hours
The base; 3-4 hours
The concept of the IME Futsal Trophy 2018 was based on the FIFA World Cup Trophy; only differences were the dimensions and title. The printed concept was less expensive and had a very solid touch from the FDM Technology. It did not require any support material in the process; and as the space of the printing bed was limited, the tall structure was printed into 3 divided parts (as identified above).
To enhance its aesthetic, it was recoloured in green and gold, resembling the FIFA World Cup Trophy. The trophy was placed into the Memmert oven to dry the paint out and a 3D-printed World Cup Trophy was brought to life.
As much as the effort we put in delivering quality at work, we are not settling for anything less when it comes to play. Seeing the importance to balance work with play, we strive to bake work-life balance into our company’s culture in all unique ways to fit our organisation. Not to mention, sometimes we find as much fun in 3D-printing a World Cup as printing a wind turbine!
