Solution

  • Step 1: 3D Modeling. First, a 3D model of the trophy was meticulously designed. This digital blueprint included the cylindrical body, the inscription “MAN OF THE MATCH” in bold capital letters, four horizontal stripes positioned below the text, and three tapping holes precisely placed at the bottom of the cylinder.
  • Step 2: SLA 3D Printing. The trophy’s body was then produced using a method called Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing. In this process, a liquid resin was cured layer-by-layer with a laser beam, solidifying into the desired white trophy shape according to the pre-designed 3D model.
  • Step 3: CNC Machining. The trophy’s base was crafted from a solid block of aluminum using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining. A CNC machine precisely removed material from the aluminum block based on the digital instructions of the 3D model, resulting in the final grey trophy base.
  • Step 4: Tapping. After the aluminum base was machined, three tapping holes were created on its underside to match the holes in the 3D-printed body. These holes would allow for threaded fasteners to securely connect the two components.
  • Step 5: Finishing Touches. Once both the 3D-printed body and CNC-machined base were complete, they likely underwent a finishing process to ensure a smooth surface and a polished appearance. The cylinder was sprayed with a thin layer of glossy white paint and brushed with black stripes.
  • Step 6: Assembly: Finally, the 3D-printed trophy body was securely fastened to the CNC-machined aluminum base using threaded inserts or screws installed in the tapped holes. This completed the custom trophy, ready for presentation.
