3D Figure Printing

Postby Vinny » Sun May 14, 2017 12:18 am

Hey fellas,

I was in Frankfurt last weekend and while there I checked out a tech store in the shopping mall called Saturn. Think PC World, Currys, Soundstore and Golden Discs all rolled into one but bigger and a lot more interesting products. Anyway, they had a section in there where you could go into this dome shaped room and be photographed for a 3D model of yourself. I was blown away by the results! :o These models actually come out coloured so no painting required and they'll even pick up on tattoos or designs on clothes. Amazing detail and they come in a variety of sizes.

And here's a very short video on the process. It's on German but you'll get the idea. Just amazing!



There'll be no need to make models any more!

Prices are >>here<< They're a little on the expensive side at the moment but no doubt the technology will drop in price soon enough.
