2 companies specializing in 3D printing and 3D scanning joined forces and created a service, which allows for a day to create a three-dimensional copy of any person.
British company offers its customers a copy of their eerily realistic, which are produced in three sizes — from 15 to 25 centimeters, and made with a combination of technology 3D-scanning and printing, to repeat the smallest features of the human body.
The intricate details, from clothing and jewelry, and the last expression, and even the exact shade of lipstick can be transferred to a plastic model that is manufactured to order.
Service, called My3DTwin, became a joint venture in which the common cause united the two companies. Company Cadvanture, specializing in 3D-printing, and the company Levavo, providing services of three-dimensional scanning.
To make a miniature counterpart, the man photographed 50 cameras simultaneously from all sides for about 15 minutes.
Employees Levavo say that the process of 3D-scan allows you to quickly and accurately recreate a person in the virtual world. My3DTwin uses a methodology based on photogrammetry, which extracts the object properties of the photographic images to create a 3D-model. It includes the exact dimensions of the body and its form, and the exact recreation of colors, allowing you to make the perfect mini-double.
The model itself is printed in full color on most modern 3D-printer that can recreate 390.000 colors in order to maximize the doll looked like the original. The cost model will range from 130 to 300 dollars, and pick up his twin can be within 24 hours after the end of the scanning process.
My3DTwin company was founded by three friends who are addicted 3D-technology and began to use it to re-create a variety of items. Then they switched to scan people and they came up with the idea of a puppet-doubles.
Levavo describes the service as "a new and fun way to change the look of the photo by exploring the 3D picture."
In the future, the company also hopes to begin to create group shots that families have a modern alternative to the traditional family photos.
