Ulrich Schwanitz creates bronze sculptures and pendants from digital designs and has them manufactured on 3D printers. His latest creation, the »You & Me« figurines from the »Scrappies« series - A series of originally designed figurines in scrap metal look, represent love, affection and mutual commitment - emotions that everyone values and never lose their significance.

Personalised 3D printed Scrappies is now on Indiegogo

The bronze figurines are inspired by everything you can find in a scrapyard: old nuts and bolts, tin cans, pipes, coils, parts of ball bearings. Ulrich is now running a campaign at Indiegogo and will personalize the figurines with two initials of your choice.

Ulrich Schwanitz writes: "I had initially made the »You & Me« sculpture as a unique gift for our 30th wedding anniversary, but when Christiane placed the Scrappies on her office desk, her collegues loved them so much that we thought why not share it and make it available to others."

This is a perfect and unique gift for your loved one using the evolving 3D printing technology and you may also notice it is manufactured in one single piece. If this project can be successful Ulrich Schwanitz plan to get into larger runs to explore more possibilities of metal printing.

You can support Ulrich Schwanitz by backing his project. There is a choice of rewards suitable for every budget starting from $3. For $80 you will receive a pair of 2" (5 cm) high solid steel/bronze pendants, personalized with two initials of your choice and can be worn as a necklace or tied to all sorts of things, from your keys to your phone, or $100 for a pair of 1" (25 mm) high small pendants in 925 Sterling silver. Check out his campaign at Indiegogo for more options. or simply just spread the word and let your friends and family know about his project.
