Dr. Martin Luther King Junior Monument Replica
This is a 3D printed replica of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. monument located in West Potomac Park at 1964 Independence Avenue. It is printed in high resolution, making it incredibly detailed down to the knot in his tie, which gets better with size (larger is better). It's amazing how the model does such an effective job of recreating the stone texture, and this is captured in the print exceptionally well.
On the side of the piece the phase: "OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE" is engraved just like the monument.

Washable in lukewarm soapy water.
This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machines to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine. Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!
POLYLACTIC ACID (PLA PLASTIC)
Every item in my shop is made from Polylactic Acid (PLA), which is a non-toxic organic thermo-polymer made from corn starch or sugarcane and is industrially compostable under very specific and expensive conditions. It will not break down if buried or submerged in water and will last for a very, very long time. 3DPD makes every effort to repurpose and transform waste plastics such as support material and failed prints. One example of this is that our PLA waste is ground up into shards and suspended in the filled and premium bust product lines. Additionally, in-house colors such as black make use of a small percentage of waste plastics to recycle them. Anyone that makes the claim that PLA is “eco-friendly” or “biodegradable” is simply misinformed and has copy/pasted the erroneous marketing materials made available by the manufacturers. 3DPD will aspire to reduce, repurpose, recycle, or upcycle its waste streams and prevent as much material as possible from being sent to the landfill, and a portion of your purchase will be used to fund this ongoing research and development.
