What Is a 3D-Printed Action Figure?
A 3D-printed action figure is made from a full-body scan of someone posed in a costume. The figurine is made with a full-color 3D printer. There’s no manual rendering required and the custom action figure is delivered within about 3 weeks.
Steps required to make a 3D printed action figure (more details below)
Creating 3D-printed action figures requires getting scanned by a full-body 3D scanner.
When customers choose this service through Twindom partners, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Steps to Create Your Own 3D Printed Action Figure
Pick a costume
To make your 3D printed action figure, you’ll first want to select which character you want to make and put together a costume. You can either head to the costume store or make one yourself.
Tip: Try to avoid costumes with lots of see-through materials or shiny fabrics. These types of materials are difficult to 3D scan and won’t come out well in your final 3D print.
Find a location/event with a full-body 3D scanner
Find a Twindom partner location or event with a portable full-body, 3D scanner. For example, scanning is often available at comic conferences as 3D action figures are increasingly popular products for attendees.
Pose for a 3D scan
The process is very quick and you only need to hold a pose for 1/4 of a second. It’s very similar to just taking a regular 2D picture. Once you take your 3D scan you’ll be able to select what size of 3D-printed action figure you want. Sizes typically range from 3 inches to 9 inches.
Receive your 3D-printed action figure
Order fulfillment typically takes 2-4 weeks for 3D-printed action figures after the customer has been scanned.

The advanced Twindom platform enables HD retouching to smooth and perfect all of our 3d-printed products. This technology ensures that each action figure is of the highest quality.
