As part of Philly Tech Week, a Center City company wants to help you see yourself in another dimension. The 3D printing shop is churning out full-color figurines of anyone who walks in the door.
“The idea is that we can take this technology and really make it accessible to anybody that can come in and stand still for a few minutes and get scanned up,” says Alex Rivera (at left in photo), a 3D artist and toy designer at NRI, 10th and Chestnut Streets.
How about a 3D model of your face for $25, or a statuette for $125, ready in about a week?
Rivera notes that their 3D scanners are mobile.
“Bring it to your office, bring it to your party, bring it to your bar mitzvah, your wedding, anywhere you can think of. Anywhere traditional photography has a place,” he says.
