Our 3D Printing Partners Pro Z 3D Solutions were involved in the latest fundraising initiative of the Steve Waugh Foundation.

The Steve Waugh Foundation raises funds for children with rare diseases (approximately 6,000 – 8,000 rare diseases affecting 400,000 Australian children) through their Captain’s Ride. This is an exclusive 6 day on road cycle by invitation only.

This time around the Captain’s Ride was held in Tasmania with Steve Waugh and 75 riders including Olympic greats Daley Thompson and Shane Gould, AFL legends Adam Goodes & Danny Frawley and sporting superstars John Mclean & Michael Milton.

Pro Z 3D Solutions were commissioned to print 3d figurines of the drawings of the cyclists created by some of the children that received help from the foundation. These figurines were used in advertising material for raising funds for the Captain’s Ride.

The challenge was to print the figurines so they would accurately represent the children’s 2D sketches with a 3D model. The figurines were printed on their full colour Project660 3D printer.
