Dream Drops, an Israeli company specializing in custom packaging, worked with Stratasys on the My COVID Hero project, bringing to life the action figures of heroes imagined and drawn by children during the pandemic, using Stratasys full-color polyjet technology

My COVID Hero is an international competition organized by Stratasys in which children sent drawings depicting their designs for superheroes who will protect them and fight the coronavirus. Stratasys received hundreds of drawings: ten of these were translated into professional drawings and from there into 3D models.

Utilizing the new features in KeyShot Luxion, Stratasys polyjet technology, new materials (Vero Ultra Clear), GrabCAD Print, and the 3MF format, all enabled the team at Dream Drops to achieve a fantastic result on the J-series Stratasys printers.

The winning ten characters, printed in high resolution and full colour (Pantone validated), including the texts and the transparent materials were sent to children around the world along with professional illustrations of their superheroes and picture frames printed in different colours and textures, including the drawings by the winning children.

The company also produced hundreds of personally designed backpacks. Each of the children who participated in the contest received a backpack with their designs, portraying Stratasys’ emphasis on personal customization.
