From Polygons to Production

Harry Topley

Retro-Rockets, and our parent company, Ruidoso Metalworks, have been experimenting with 3-D prototyping and casting from 3D printing wax-like resins for about half a decade now. Our designers have been self-teaching, with the help of the internet, how to use the 3D modeling/sculpting software we have available, and pushing our home assembled B9Creator 3D printer to its limits to create our original models of space ships and other sci-fi fare. Here we have for you, finally the complete process from 3D model, to stunning wearable jewelry. We are still working to refine this process so that we can reliably offer it to our customers at Ruidoso Metalworks.

Celebrating the Lunar Astronauts

Harry Topley

We just wanted to share a quick WIP photo of our Lunar Astronaut, which will be going into production very soon. Commemorating the successes of the NASA Lunar Program, and the work of all Astronauts who stepped foot on the moon. Designed using 3D modeling programs, and printed with the B9 Creator, master cast in bronze. Next it will be re-sprued for a more efficient wax flow, cleaned up just a bit more, a mold will be made with vulcanized silicon rubber, and we will be ready to mass produce.


Happy Holidays and A Prosperous New Year

Harry Topley

We just wanted to let all of our fans and customers know that we are thankful for your support this year for the changes we've made. And we are excited for what the new year will bring, and to bring you some more great designs as well as the quality retro-rockets we've been making all along.
