What determines 3D print quality?

3D print quality is made up of 2 parts: the quality of the 3D scan, and the capabilities of the 3D printer operator. Twindom scans have 400,000 faces per person (e.g. a 2-person model has 800,000 faces) and 8K textures (click here to browse our gallery to see what that means), which is often far better quality than 3D printers are capable of replicating. The second part, the 3D printer operator, is important because producing a high quality 3D print is not as simple as clicking ‘print’. There are many processes that go into preparing a 3D printer and properly post-processing a 3D print once it is printed that affect the final quality. The complexity of producing a high quality 3D print from a 3D printer is the single most overlooked and under-appreciated component of 3D photography; having printed tens of thousands of 3D prints ourselves, we are very well versed in this specialty and only partner with 3D printing partners capable of producing 3D prints that exceed our quality standards.
