3D Printing Photo Booth Omote3D

A new medium for the classic self portrait (or family portrait) is emerging in Japan thanks to 3D printing. As part of an exhibition called EYE OF GYRE in Harajuku, you may make a reservation to have your 3D printed portrait taken between November 2012 and January 2013.

Below is an illustration of the process of digitizing your portrait and creating miniature replicas in your likeness.

3D Printing Photo Booth Process

3D printed portraits come in 3 sizes: 10 cm, 15 cm, and 20 cm. The smallest print costs 21,000 JPY ($264 USD) and the largest costs 32,000 JPY ($400 USD) per person in the portrait.

Reservations and more details on the product are available at the Omote 3D website.

    We are interesting with the scanning hardwares.

    We are authorized maker of toy soliers for King and Country … etc. We have experience artists painting plain figures into colorful and real looking figures.

    I am considering these:
    1) Kind of co-operation so that you can explore your 3D business in Hong Kong and China
    2) Purchase your scanning hard ware and use in my factory
    3) We paint plain 3D printed figures for you so that you can sell figures with more attractive and real appeal.

    Looking forward your reply

      Hi David,

      Did you receive a reply to your message? I am in London. I’m interested in creating 3D models using this technology and using expertise such as yours to paint the models to accurately reflect the person they are modeled on.

      I look forward to your reply.

      Best regards,
