How it Works

What is a 3D printed figurine, 3D portrait or 3D selfie?

A 3D printed figurine, 3D selfie or 3D portrait (they all mean the same thing) is a special moment captured in 3D and printed on a full-color 3D printer. There are many steps to make a 3D printed figurine, but it usually starts with first getting 3D scanned on a full body 3D scanner. After lots of digital processing and 3D digital artistry the final digital output is 3D printed on a full color 3D printer. Most full color 3D printers on the market today print in full color sandstone which gives the 3D printed figurines a porcelain-like finish. The use-cases for 3D printed figurines are vast. Use cases include: 3D family portraits, wedding cake toppers, graduation memorabilia, 3D selfies of sports stars, celebrities, 3D portraits of pets etc. To see how the whole process works, watch our how it works video to the left.
