Firm offers punter prints pronto

Mini me in 3D

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Many of our children, perhaps even our spouses, have had aspirations of becoming a model. Now it's possible to wind them up by turning them into one - 'figure'-atively speaking.

French 3D printing firm Sculpteo is now offering a way for punters to transform photos into 3D models which can then be physically created and posted over.

All you need is a couple pics - front and side - and for about 50 quid Sculpteo will work its three-dimensional sculpting and colouring magic.

Sculpteo

Go to the Sculpteo website, upload your snaps and decide on the size you'd like from 70mm to 150mm. When you've paid, Sculpteo's artists will get to work creating a 3D model, which is subsequently emailed over for tinkering and approval.

All you have to do then is wait a few days, and you'll receive your mini figurine in the post, Sculpteo said.

Sculpteo will set you back €60 (£52) for a 70mm model, €90 (£77) for one that's 100mm, and €180 (£155) for a 150mm figurine.

With the digital design complete, users can order as many statues as they like for a lower cost too.

Let us know if you create your own and how it goes. ®
