MINNATURE – Miniature Exhibition Charity Walk (a CSR programme)

MinNature CSR programme sponsors at least 1 group of less fortunate children or orphans once a month to come visit and experience all the wonders of MinNature. It is a programme where we try to expose these wonderful minds to the creative industry and world.

Not Just Any School Excursion.

It is that time of the year again that teachers and children from all ages start flocking around looking for venues for their annual excursions. We had great fun bringing all the children around; most of them very excited and inquisitive about MinNature and its miniature wonders. Our goal is to impart as much valuable knowledge to these beautiful and growing minds. MinNature is place for you to learn differently; we use touch, storytelling and hands on presentation to educate children about lifestyle, culture, history and even science and technology. We continue to create new things for children and even adults to come and explore. Stay tuned for more.


Printing Some Layout for Developer Clients.

The test print looks great and takes a reasonable good amount adjustments before getting a nice print out. This is a 8.5cm x 8.5cm x 2cm piece which took 1 hour 40 minutes to 3D print out.

Next to test out are the window openings. Can’t wait to show the developers their test print.

World’s Largest 3D Printed Miniature Wonderland

MinNature Malaysia is the largest 3D printed miniature wonderland in the world. Inspired by the largest model railway in the world – Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg, MinNature was created to introduce miniature model railway to this part of the world. However, unlike the other model railway exhibitions around the world which uses quite a lot of models which can be purchased off-the-rack from the many big brands such as Faller, Kibri, Vollmer and many more, MinNature showcases over 95% 3D printed buildings and structures which were specifically 3D designed and 3D printed in house for this project.

The first 3D design and 3D printing started in mid 2014. Here in the photograph, you can see our first Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printer at work. 1 3D printer grew to 10 3D printers in 3 months and we printed day and night. Even to date, we are still 3D printing new phases of the exhibition. Over 1,600 kg of ABS filaments were used to produce the many scenes in MinNature.

By the end of the first quarter of 2016, we started in situ landscaping and modeling assembly works. Prior to this project, 99% of our team members have never done or have any experience scale modeling or architecture modeling or model train or construction works before. It was a great challenge for the team, with a min age of 22 years old, to work on and they successfully did it. It took the team almost 8 months to complete the entire 7,000 square feet of layout.

MinNature houses over 20,000 miniature figurines, buildings, structures and objects. Within the landscape, we have also embedded over 30 easter eggs all around the site for you to discover.
