UGLYDOLL™ Enters the World of the 3D Printing 
with MakerBot Collaboration!

Green Brook, NJ - July, 2014--Being different and unique is what Uglydoll™ is all about! That is why we are so excited to announce a groundbreaking partnership with 3D Printing innovator MakerBot. MakerBot has enthusiastically designed a collection of 3D printable collectibles featuring four of our fan's most popular characters Babo™, Wage™, Ice-Bat™ and Ox™, which can now be 3D printed on MakerBot® Replicator® Desktop 3D Printers.   

 

"Taking Uglydoll into the world of 3D printing seems like a natural extension for our Uglydoll characters," noted David Horvath, co-founder of Pretty Ugly. "Sun-Min and I have been fans of 3D printing for a while and we are excited to be working with MakerBot on bringing our characters to life in a whole different 3D world."

"We are so excited to offer Uglydoll 3D printed content in the MakerBot Digital Store," noted Jenny Lawton, president of MakerBot and a huge Uglydoll fan, with Wage and Ice-Bat being some of her favorite characters. "The story behind the creation of the Uglydoll characters by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim showcase how creativity can positively impact lives. We love the fun, light-hearted stories behind the Uglydoll characters and hope that they will help inspire a whole new generation of makers with their 3D printed adventures."

The first wave of characters introduced are in T-pose format, designed to be 3D printed and fully poseable; the second wave are Uglydoll characters in a dynamic stance, posed to enjoy the real world of their owner. A third wave will include a 3D printable Uglydoll bus that will take miniature Uglydoll characters on a fun-filled summer vacation; and a fourth wave will be 3D printable environments for the 3D printed Uglydoll characters to live in. The 3D printed Uglydoll characters are available on the MakerBot Digital Store (makerbot.com/digital store) with prices starting at $1.29 per digital model. Currently available are the T-pose and dynamic posed characters. The additional character sets will come later this summer.
