Get your mini-me with Captured Dimensions

Captured Dimensions offers 3D scans and prints at competitive prices. They use a process called photogrammetry to create 3D scans of you, your baby, or even your dog. From there the scans are processed through Sculpteo to create heirlooms to be passed on for generations.
All 3D printing services require a 3D printable file before an object can be printed. The files can be attained through multiple websites, by creating the file yourself with a design software, through a 3D scan, or through photogrammetry.
Photogrammetry is the process of overlapping pictures to create a 3D model of an object. Sophisticated programs can then interpret the intersection of the photos to create a 3D mesh of any object that was placed in front of the cameras. These programs are available for purchase for at-home 3D modeling (ranging from free to $25,000), but the time and quality of modeling at home can’t be compared to the service provided by Captured Dimensions. They use around 80 high definition cameras that give extreme detail in a quick round of photos. From there a team of expert designers take the models and perfect the small details that may be too small to be printed.
Captured Dimensions also has high quality digital scanners, which can be used for smaller objects with similar accuracy. These are also perfected by designers then printed and shipped through Sculpteo.
A 3D printed scan offers so much more than a picture does when it comes to memories. Imagine in future years, instead of seeing an old raggedy picture on a computer screen, your great grandchildren will be able to hold a model of what you looked like, to scale, from all sides.
