During the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) last weekend visitors could get a 3D print of themselves; a mini-me. The company 3DSVP from Haarlem, The Netherlands offered this service for the first time in Holland, following the example of Japan and Germany.

If you wanted to make a mini-version of yourself, you had to take place in a rebuilt studio, take a pose on a blue cross and stand still for about six seconds. During those six second participants were being filmed and photographed from six different angles.
It didn’t matter how to pose, because it was all upon the participants. The project saw a woman participating with her dog and a man with his girlfriend on his neck. There was also a pregnant woman who came with the purpose of capturing her big belly. After a couple of hours the print would be ready and customers could take the 3D print of themselves with them. Whether 3DSVP continues to offer this service or not in the future, is not yet known.
