To join in on the celebrations for the Chinese Communist Party’s 100 year anniversary, Kings 3D, one of the largest industrial SLA 3D printer manufacturers and service providers in China, 3D printed the life-size statues of its past and present Presidents.

It is somewhat ironic that life-size statues of the past and present leaders of China’s Communist Party were 3D printed by a company called Kings 3D, especially since one political position that communism certainly does not have is that of the king. At the same time, the Presidents of China’s ruling party are so powerful, and their impact so significant on the Nation’s policies, that their role is tantamount to that of kings.

So Kings 3D paid tribute to its country’s recent history by 3D printing the life-size statues of these larger-than-life political figures: their past and present leaders, starting with Mao Tse Tung and ending with Xi Jinping. China has come a long way since the Communist revolution and has evolved from a poor, almost entirely agricultural economy to the world’s largest economy and a space fairing nation. Now also a major 3D printing nation.

On July 1st, 2021, the Communist Party of China marked 100 years since it was founded in Shanghai. The party, which has ruled China since 1949, now has more than 90 million members, making it one of the biggest in the world. Current President Xi Jinping delivered a speech stressing the Party’s role in the achievement of the country’s “national rejuvenation” and opposing foreign interference in China’s rise.

China’s economic boom happened over just a few decades, marking one of the biggest economic miracles of all time. The additional irony is that what started as a communist revolution became one of the biggest success stories in today’s largely capitalist world. With some leaders that are just a little more equal than others.
