Marketing stunt or not, what Mexico-based 3D printing shop Ideaz3D has recently done in a shopping mall is definitely bringing 3D printing to the masses. Right before the winter holidays started, the shop from Mexico City has opened a 3D scanning and printing booth at a very crowded mall in northern Mexico. People were given the opportunity to create a replica of themselves right on site.
People had to pay 175 pesos, which comes down to about $13.50, to get their own figurine printed out. Comparing to western standards, that’s really cheap for a 3D printed figurine. But low prices in comparison to western standards: that’s what Ideaz3D is known for. The shop has only just started at late November last year, and it seems like this first 3D printing shop from Mexico is finding needle-sharped ways to promote 3D printing in its own country. Check out some pictures and a video of the public event.
