3D OEM PVC Keyring : Watch Dogs Legion
Based on the in-game pictures or videos, we created a 3D OEM PVC keyring. As we did for the metal keyring, we created the 3D file and got it approved first. This step is very important because it’s the moment we can define the details of the product. Depending on the size and material, our graphic team will work out the 3D version and put the correct level of details.
Once it’s approved, we create a 3D sample (printed in 3D) to give the client an idea of how it will look like. This product is not the final version but only a sample. Then we open the mold. The mold is only opened once we are sure that the 3D is ok. it’s the most expensive part of the budget for this kind of project. If we need to modify it, then it can cost a lot of money. We need to prepare new samples. Small parts (as the cigar here) are the most important difficulties. It makes the final item more fragile:
- during transport/shipment, it can be teared off.
- it needs to be glued so it can imply overgluing.
It means that we need to anticipate the possible problems depending on the artwork.
We work these points with our client very closely to have the perfect final item.
