About

I was Inspired to do this project after seeing my own grandmother struggle with the loss of her eye sight. She used to enjoy looking though the photo albums of our family but slowly she lost the ability to see anything. With my 3d printer I was able to print a replica of some family members using a makeshift 3D scanner, when I gave her the print she was the happiest I had seen in years. I knew then that others would benefit from 3D scanned portraits.  Building on my already existing 3D knowledge and 3D printing business, I will include this 3D scanning service in a mobile setting, to go out to Homes, Events and Special Occasions and have the memories immortalized in lifelike 3d print! I currently have all but one of the tools to start this project( 3D Printer, computers, truck and trailer)," A high resolution 3D Scanner" is the tool I need to finish this project! This is why I need your pledge! Reliable, Quick working, Portable scanning equipment is very costly 30,000+. I plan to purchase a gently used high resolution, portable scanner for the goal set. And start to change the way all of us see portraits! ((   https://www.facebook.com/pages/Knieper-Custom-3D-Printing/713624628703084   ))

Risks and challenges

Having already familiarized myself with the 3d printing world, producing and selling items I've made from 3D printing. I've already done the really hard work and now look to expand in the 3D printing Industry. The only challenge for this project is familiarizing myself with the new scanning software, that may take a minute to learn.
