3D Scanning and 3D Printing Draws a Crowd in Mexican Mall
Ideaz3D 3D Prints Replicas of Visitors at a Mexican Mall
A 3D scanning and 3D printing booth opened at a crowded mall in northern Mexico. Using a variety of 3D technologies, including the Sense handheld 3D scanner by 3D Systems, Skanect software, and a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D Printer, the booth operators were able to create replicas right on site.
10 cm figurines were sold for 175 pesos, or about $13.50.
Ideaz3D, the first 3D printing shop in Mexico, hosted the booth and operated the equipment, attracting large crowds at the Galerias Mall in the border state of Sonora.
Here is a video produced by Ideaz3D that shows the excitement people had when they saw 3D printing in action. Also be sure to check out their Facebook page.
