Frequently Asked Questions!
Our highly skilled professionals use a portable, handheld 3D scanner to capture you (your child, or your guests). The scan is uploaded to a computer and finalized using our specialized software, and then it’s sent to our 3D printer where layers high quality durable filament create a miniature replica of the scan. The final product is lightweight, durable, and ready to take its place alongside your other family keepsakes and mementos.
Due to the small size and details inherent in the sculptures, certain fine details such as strands of hair, fingers and slender accessories would break if we were to try printing them. Instead, our artists will interpret and reproduce these details separately.
Hair remains difficult to capture accurately in 3D sculpting. To give hair an authentic look, we’ll manually detail it, so it looks like the original. We recommend people style hair in such a way that it can be captured as a solid. In the same way, jewelry and decorations that dangle or are extremely fine will not capture well.
Transparent, semi-transparent and shiny accessories — items like eyeglasses with thin rims, veils, and reflective jewelry — cannot be captured or 3D printed accurately.
The scanning process is completely safe, and only uses LED light to capture your 3D image.
Appointments take 30 min to 1 hour depending upon your needs, and the scanning process only takes a few minutes. We are also able to smooth out imperfections or create additional sculpted elements for an additional charge. We can also create logo designs and customized products. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs & if we don't get back to you within 48 hours you will receive a $25.00 discount on your initial scanning appointment.
