Featured Client: Dancing with the Stars / ABC Television

dancing with the start season 20 award trophy

Working with Damian Hattori of Mad Props Los Angeles, we were contacted this year to help re-design the trophy for season 20 of Dancing with the Stars. The production company liked the design they were using, but it had no structural integrity to it. They did not like the fact it felt "like a piece of plastic last year" and wanted to give it a substantial feel while making it as sturdy as possible so it could be handled on live television without it falling apart. We tackled the job by re-designing it so 2 half inch metal rods went through the length of the award from top to bottom. The award was not bolted together through all of the main assembly parts, so you could literally use this year's trophy to hammer nails with. The art director was thrilled, and after more back and forth with Mad Props, we figured out a way to chrome all the pieces, then coat with gold.

The final award was on the season finale last night and looked incredible. The best moment for me was when the winner picked it up and was holding it over their head and shaking it up and down. I knew that even if they dropped it, it would still be in one piece. So at the end of the day, I was happy, the prop master was happy, and more importantly, the art director and producers were both happy as well. Another highly satisfied client. And such a pleasure to work with Damian and his crew over at Mad Props Los Angeles. Can't wait to see what new jobs this leads to!

Featured Client: German SpaceX Hyperloop Team

German SpaceX Hyperloop Team Photos from West LA 3D Printing in Los Angeles

This summer, we were fortunate enough to work with the German Hyperloop team. They are a group of student scientists from Germany's top engineering schools who got together to submit a design for the Hyperloop competition SpaceX was sponsoring. The team flew over from Germany and set up shop in Playa del Rey. Lukas Eschment contacted West LA 3D Printing because the team needed parts printed for their vehicle, and they needed them done correctly and quickly. Working with Lucas and his group of engineers, we were able to print the parts they needed in a very timely fashion. And the parts stood up to their exacting specifications.

Even with the propulsion problems SpaceX was having, they still managed to win the Innovation award and were invited back to participate in the next round. We congratulate Lukas and the team captain Alejandro for their amazing and innovative design and construction and we look forward to their return for the next round.

Featured Client: Adrian Sanchez

Adrian Sanchez is a graduate of Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Adrian originally came to us to fix a scan he made of his hand so it would print properly on an FDM printer. That was the beginning of our relationship. Since then, we have helped him find his vision with all of the projects he has brought us. "We really enjoy working with Adrian" says owner Peter Menotti. "When he first came here and talked about what he has as his vision, I immediately got it and realized I wanted to help him in any way I could." Since then, West LA 3D has become a favorite hangout of Adrian, especially when he has new ideas he wants to try out. And when we couldn't provide the service he needed (like printing a 8 foot tall version of one of his fingers), we contacted one of our strategic partners and put them in touch. The end result is a happy client who keeps coming back.Adrian is just one of our success stories.
