3D Printing and Casting Services

Welcome to Troll Forged Miniatures

Hello! Welcome to Troll Forged Miniatures!

Thank you for your interest in creating with us. This page will provide general information about our casting processes. This is meant as a general overview; we are willing to discuss changes to any system to fit your specific needs.

3D printing services:

Troll Forged can produce prototypes and masters using high-end 3D printers, as well as metal or resin casting.  We have a very quick process turnaround to make sure that your projects are in your hands as fast as possible. We have the expertise and experience to help evaluate the function of your masters and projects for creation in further casting processes as well.  We offer competitive pricing for our mastering services at $1 per mL of resin used for the figure and supports.  Contact us today for a quote!

Mastering:

Here at Troll Forged, we create high-quality metal masters that reproduce an original 3D print or hand-sculpted item.  These metal casts are suitable as demonstration pieces and studio models, and are most often used as sub-masters for the creation of production molds.
Please note: the vulcanization process subjects the original master to very high heats and pressures, resulting in the original not surviving the molding process. If the survival of the original model is important to you, please ask about creating an poured silicone master before the vulcanization process.

Production Molding:

Production molds can be made to create multiples of a single figure, or a set of figures. Each mold will be able to hold a calculated number of a figure, based on the size and complexity of the figure.  Once the client is satisfied with the
quality of the production molds, mass production can begin.

Production:

Troll Forged excels in the production of pieces with our “Trollcast” spincast resin process. Spincasting resin is of great benefit to both designers and producers of models, as it creates highly detailed models, with quick set times, and low costs. Our shop is outfitted to do production runs in a large number of different production methods, ranging from traditional spincast metal molds and various resin formulations to traditional resin pressure cast and gravity cast molding.
