Technology has now provided a way to capture special occasions in our lives with 3D replicas in remarkable detail and fine features. Collect them over the years. They grow as your children grow as they are to scale, reported forgejax.com.

You can choose from different sizes, materials, stands, put them on trophies, even have them made out of chocolate. “3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything. The next industrial revolution in manufacturing will happen in America,” President Barak Obama, stated forgejax.com.

“Take a picture and make a 3D print out of it, it’ll last… until you forget where you put it,” stated UrbanDaddy, circa 2014.

“Say cheese for 3D-Printed Selfies, a 3D-printed action figurine of, well, you, if you’ve ever wanted your own likeness to grace a Monopoly board or needed a stand-in for vacation photos.” Consider this an early holiday present, reported urbandaddy.com.

The 3D printed selfie is becoming a rather common offering from 3D printing companies; however they generally need, either a 3D scan of your face and body, a 3D model, or several high quality pictures. And, while many of those 3D models can be extremely detailed and realistic, they are also on the expensive side, stated 3dprintingindustry.com.

“3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file,” explains 3Dprinting.com. ” The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.”
