Cutting the Large Prop Game of Thrones Dragon for Funko

We were contacted by the amazing folks at Funko to create a prop for a popup display in NYC. We would need to handle the milling while the artistic team at Funko would handle the coating and painting.  The popup display would feature a large dragon from Game of Thrones. The detail required couldn’t be easily achieved via traditional hand sculpting methods and instead required the user of our 7-axis robot ‘Zoe’.

Starting off with a block of foam, we started the process taking a 3D model and converting into what the robot requires to function, detailed toolpaths.

From the detailed toolpaths we milled several pieces together. The finished result speaks for itself!
