The last time I was in Mexico City, I purchased a couple souvenirs related to El Santo, a famous Luchador there. One of them was a little figurine called “El Hijo del Santo,” or “The son of the Saint.” The problem is the little guy has a fat head and falls over really easily, so I thought I’d make a stand to secure him to. I modeled it after a wrestling ring so he’d feel right at home!

Here’s the CAD model I created from scratch, using a block-out model of the figurine as a size reference.

I then uploaded the model to Shapeways, this super company that will 3D print your CAD models in a variety of materials, and even sell them to other people through their website for you!

My first 3D printed design! El Hijo looks right at home 🙂

I embossed his name in the ring floor. My original model was sent back because I needed to thicken up the font a little.
