Substantiating by Web3 Technologies the Value of Design & Serial 3D Printing – Final Aim’s Platform Use Case in Productions and Sales

2022.02.01

Tokyo, Japan, February 1st, 2021 – Final Aim, Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO Masafumi Asakura, and CDO Yasuhide Yokoi) announced that the company utilized its web3 platform “Final Chain” in productions and sales to substantiate the value of design and products. Specifically, the platform protected the authenticity of the figurine design created by the Final Aim designer and the originality of each product manufactured in serial 3D printing.

Designing with 3D CAD software, sharing final design files via the cloud, serial 3D printing, and distributing products have been the core of the modern industrial design. Designers at Final Aim heavily use these conventional tools and services daily. However, there remain underlying digital risks: reverse-engineering, copying, tampering, counterfeiting, and losing control of the data ownership.

To overcome these inevitable challenges, Final Aim is developing a web3 platform “Final Chain” that integrates decentralized and distributed systems like blockchain, smart contracts, and IPFS technologies.

With streamlined user experience and intuitive interface, designers and manufacturers can collaborate. It targets not just design files but also intellectual property and legal contracts to build trust and authenticity

To celebrate “Year of the Tiger” – 2022’s oriental zodiac animal symbol – a designer at Final Aim created an original figurine and used the Final Chain platform in design management, productions and selling to customers.
Through the comprehensive web3 platform, original master design files are stored and shared by IPFS technology. And every 3D printed design file has been certified by blockchain record to prove its originality and integrity. Furthermore, this certificate record is 3D printed physically on every model.
As a result, this becomes the proof of authenticity and uniqueness, allowing the designer to create and share without the worries of underlying risks and fulfilling the buyer’s desire for possession.





With the progress of the Final Chain platform, the company will be strengthening and expanding partnerships to co-create and realize web3 in the design and manufacturing industry.

Designing Plastic Waste into Memorable Model Kit: “RePLAMO” Project Launch

2021.08.19

Tokyo, Japan, August 19th, 2021 – Final Aim, Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO Masafumi Asakura, and CDO Yasuhide Yokoi) is proud to launch a new collaborative project “RePLAMO.”
In collaboration with Specified Nonprofit Corporation, Green Bird (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Keisuke Fukuda), an organization that has been organizing cleanup activities all over Japan and worldwide, we are revealing a new project and its first design: a brand new model kit made from collected plastic waste.
Alongside the launch, Green Bird is now inviting participants to new beach cleanup events combined with the experience of making this memorable model kit from collected plastic waste.

A special website is now available for details and purchase:
https://replamo.jp

In recent years, the awareness of environmental measures is becoming higher from global policies like ESG criteria to local activities such as banning plastic straws and extra charging on shopping bags. However, the improvement of the global environment and ecosystem is yet limited.
Since its establishment, Green Bird has been challenging the issue of plastic waste for more than 19 years by collecting litter from cities, rivers, and oceans. To further push forward its vision of “Creating the opportunity for kids who will build a future to think about plastic waste in a positive and fun way,” Green Bird stood up to launch a new project “RePLAMO,” in collaboration with supporting organizations and members.

Green Bird website:
https://www.greenbird.jp/

Final Aim is a startup with a mission in creating new businesses in a global market through our zero-to-one support with innovative design and technology. Our efforts have been seen in those great collaborations, for example with Sony, OTSAW, a Singapore-based robotics startup, and Tier VI, a leading autonomous mobility startup.

Inspired by Green Bird’s strong ambition towards the new environmental and sustainable challenge, Final Aim joined forces to provide our industrial design support and turned project ideas into reality – a plastic model kit made from collected plastic waste.

PASS: RePLAMO

“RePLAMO” Product Description

The first model kit is “Sea Turtle.”
Currently, plastic waste is causing harm and death to sea turtles. It is being said that 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean, and approximately 50% of the sea turtles are mistakenly eating plastic for food.
The product color comes in three themes: green, blue, and random. Since the material is made from collected waste, every turtle is unique as no single texture and pattern are the same as others.
Part of the sales will be donated to the Green Bird activity.

How “RePLAMO” is Made – Innovative and Sustainable Process

The material of “RePLAMO” is waste plastic collected through litter collection activity in cities and beaches. The model is carefully crafted and manufactured through litter washing, milling, molding, and post-processing.

Project Background


Specified Nonprofit Corporation, Green Bird
Representative Director: Keisuke Fukuda

Green Bird has been organizing activities under the concept, “A clean town makes for a good society.” The circle of activities has widened to 80 locations in Japan and worldwide, and the total participants per year are now up to 30,000 members. In terms of specific ocean environmental issues, Green Bird has been holding many family events, and further launched a new project this March – “RETTER” that transforms waste into attractive products such as coasters.
Aligned with this context, together with the project members below, we launched “RePLAMO” to create simple and enjoyable experience opportunities for kids to think about environmental issues.

Project Members

“RePLAMO” is a project that produces new value by combining environmental protection with creativity. Green Bird partnered with RABBIT (Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, CEO Fusanari Masuda), CHERRY (Minato-ku, Tokyo, CEO Akinori Suzuki), and Final Aim (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO Masafumi Asakura, and CDO Yasuhide Yokoi) to start off the project.
