Artec Group is launching Shapify.Pro – a new version of its 3D-selfie technology designed for Microsoft Kinect owners – and a way to monetize 3D prints. Shapify.Pro will debut at the 3D Printshow in New York, February 13-15.

The figurines are exact replicas of what is scanned by Kinect, 3D printed in monochrome or color plastic at 1/20th actual height.

All you need to become an official “3D-Shapifizer”, is a Shapify.Pro kit: an account at, a Shapify branded backpack and scanning pad, and a discount for 3D printing of your figurines at Shapify partner printshops.

With Shapify.Pro, Artec is giving users a chance to make money with 3D scanning and printing. ”Just follow the voice instructions to quickly scan your customer with a Kinect sensor and order the 3D figurine at a Shapify printshop at a special low price,” explains Artec. “The figurine will be delivered to your home in several days. Sell your 3D scanning and printing service wherever you want: at parties and sports events, forums and conferences, corporate events… your only limit is your imagination.”

You need the following to scan customers using Shapify.Pro:

  • Microsoft Kinect for Windows
  • Windows 7 (x64) or Windows 8
  • Intel Core I3 or later with at least 4 GB RAM
  • Audio Speakers and USB 2.0
  • Internet connection

The Shapify.Pro kit costs $999, and Artec is offering $999 of credit on your Shapify.Pro account for printing your orders when you buy the kit.

Shapify.Pro kits will be for sale at the Shapify.Pro booth A28 at the 3D Printshow in New York and on the official website starting February 13.
