3D Design Trends: “UpKit” Accessories and Add-ons for Quin 3D-Printable Fashion Doll #3DxToys #3DThursday #3DPrinting
3DKitbash created the Quin fashion doll originally for a crowdfunding project last year. Recently, designer Quincy has been creating and sharing a lot of exciting add-on printable content for the doll platform, including items they have been calling “UpKits” (like the hair and fist options here from Thingiverse) that they are posting all over the web where designers are posting 3D content for free or paid downloads. To my taste, the quality of these pieces are stronger than most of the paid 3D printables posted online so far, and speak to the potential strength of this marketplace.
