Ever wanted to be a superhero, or a cowboy or even a star basketball player? Well, now you can. 3D Systems have just launched 3DMe on their Cubify service that lets you upload a photo of yourself to create a personalized 3D printed figurine. Your photo-realistic head can be placed upon any one of 45 different body styles and for $64.99 a 3D printed model can be shipped right to your desk.
The 5.5″ tall figures are printed on a 3D Systems ZPrinter 650 which allows full color printing in a ceramic-like material. The ZPrinter 650 has 5 print heads corresponding to the color of material, clear, black, cyan, magenta and yellow, which gives it the ability to print in up to 390,000 colors.
“We are thrilled to put this capability into the hands of our Cubify community,” said Sarah Stocker, Senior Director Cubify, 3D Systems. “Now everyone can create a fantasy version of themselves, celebrate a loved one’s achievement or just have fun, with a personalized full color statuette, just by uploading a couple of photographs.”
3D Systems’ say that 3DMe is perfect for celebrating life’s memorable moments, such as weddings or birthdays, or mostly just for fun. But, we’re thinking that there should be some sort of Star Wars tie-in for 3DMe as I’d love to have a model of myself as a little Ewok.
