ID8 design recently approached Moldville Inc., with an alternative method to recreate historical figurine tooling used by the original Mold-A-Rama vending machines which debuted at the Seattle World's Fair in 1962.
Images below depict our recreation of the highly collectable "Neptune Spyder" figurine from the 1960s for which the tooling no longer exists. Utilizing standard tessellation language bodies, scanned or 3D sculped as input, we create accurate and highly finished rapid machine tools to produce Moldville figurines. Machining tools provided Moldville a higher quality end product and significantly shorter turnaround in comparison to the standard cast tooling process.
