About

3D technologies already exist in our daily life; it is widely used in a lot of areas, such as movies, animations, video games, architecture, and many others. In recent years, 3D printing has been a revolutionary technology, and more and more 3D printer projects come out in Kickstarter - allowing people to bring their creations to benefit the real world.

However, for most people, 3D technology is not easily accessible- it is very complex, time-consuming and expensive. It can take days for a professional designer to create a 3D model. If you want to create a 3D figurine that looks like you, a very expensive scanning service is required. 

Speed 3D is here because we want to make this 3D experience more friendly and affordable for everyone! We believe 3D technology connects the real world with the digital world and flourishes countless possibilities through user creations.

About Insta3D

We have been developing a user-friendly mobile phone application, Insta3D, allowing people to create their personal 3D avatar from their selfies or any portrait photos. We want to give the power of design and creativity to the majority of users without the 3D background. People can quickly and easily create a high quality and realistic 3D avatar with their own pictures and apply hundreds of accessories and animated body languages to the avatar. 

Insta3D app is now available on both App Store and Google Play, but we won't just stop there. We would like to give the power of 3D printing to the people. We are developing a new feature, with which users can get the high quality 3D printouts of their avatars. However, we are also facing challenges and would like your help to make this ambition come true.

 

How the App Works 

First, with Insta3D app, to create your own avatar, just simply take a picture of yourself with the smartphone. The app instantly analyzes the picture to produce a realistic 3D model.

Et voila! In just few seconds, your 3D model is created. The process is easy and fast. You can enlarge or spin your model in 360 degree.

Make your 3D avatar even more unique with hundreds of accessories: hairs styles, outfits, glasses, facial expressions, and even body languages. Update your avatar and make it look like different everyday!

Get yourself printed in 3D

Furthermore, how about to print out the avatars and send to your friends as gifts! It would be unforgettable to receive a vivid figurine as gift like this.  

Currently, if you want to own your figurine printing, you have to purchase an expensive scanner, or requires a 3rd-party scanning service, and wait for couple weeks in order to generate 3D printable models and final result.

But we would like to simplify the process for everyone to print-out their own figurine. Now we are developing a new feature in Insta3D, with this new feature, user simply taps the "Print" button in the UI, you will get a printable 3D model file instantly and ready to print in any commercial 3D printer. Or you can use our printing service to get high quality 3D printout and deliver to you.

This new feature is still under development. Besides of the implementation of app functions, we are building our own printing service in the lab. 

To deliver high quality and colorful printouts to users, we will use zPrinters in the production line. zPrinter is the most highend and professional 3D printer of 3DSystems. And all the avatar printouts will be carefully wrapped and packaged in the box for the delivery.

Premium scan

Full body scan requires advanced equipment and human effort. But with full body scan technology, you will get an extremely high quality and high detail 3D model for printout. You can have your figurine print-out in different sizes. 

If you back this pledge, we are offering you up to two people full body scan. Speed3D partners with a Japan company to provide such service. The service fee will be included in this pledge plan, but not include the travel fare to Japan. 

Risks and challenges

Currently the risk and challenge comes from several aspects:
1. The cost of cloud computing: we are using technology of cloud computing to calculate and generate models on the fly. More vivid result or more users using our service require more usage of cloud computing.

2. To create more high quality and printing ready models and accessories require more pre-production effort. We are working hard on those pre-production effort, but delay in production or product development may happen due to the limit of resources.
