About this project

True-to-life miniatures of you & your loved ones.

We create the true-to-life miniature of you in a 3D-printed figurine. It is full-colored, hyper-realistic and marvelously detailed, from facial expressions and poses, down to hairstyles and creases in clothing.

The figurine is made for everyone and every moment.

Whether it is you, your family, friends, newborns, or pets; whether it is your birthday, wedding, graduation ceremony, or just simply a moment with your loved ones, you can always get a mini version of yourself and them to capture those precious moments and freeze those beautiful memories in a delicately tangible form.

Three steps to your personalized figurine.

  • 1. Book your personal 3D scan session online - once the booking system is available on our website, you will be notified by email to reserve your scan session starting from December 2014.
  • 2. Visit our 3D Photo Figurine Studio in the Greater Boston area for a lightning-fast hi-def full body 3D scan

        3D Bean™ Photo Figurine Studio is currently located at 6 Pleasant Street in Malden MA, where we built our patent-pending 360-degree multi-camera system. We are currently looking for a new and larger space in the Greater Boston area, and planning to move to a new retail location in Spring 2015. Potential new site locations include a storefront in Downtown Boston, Assembly Row Mall in Somerville and more.

       The 3D scan procedure feels very much like taking a traditional photo in a photography studio. It can be done in a split second and is absolutely safe for your body.

  • 3. Once your figurine is ready, it can be picked up at our studio or shipped to your front door.

Select your preferred figurine size.

We are currently offering 5 different figurine scales for your choice - from 1/18th to 1/6th.

Are you looking to bring a friend or loved one with you? Welcome! Our Kickstarter Rewards Price offers even more of a discount if there is a group of two visiting us together.

Your support is vital!

We have built up our fully-functional studio which is ready for producing the high-quality lifelike figurine for you. But there is still more to be achieved. Your contribution will help us to afford:

  • Website. We need a beautiful platform to display our delicate figurines and the stories behind them, and to provide the detailed product information so you get to know our little ones better. A user-friendly online booking system would also be included to help planning your visit at our studio smoothly.
  • Package design. Your lovely miniatures deserve an exquisite place to stay, which not only guarantees the intactness of your figurine during shipping, but also serves as a piece of art to be gifted or simply kept.
  • More amazing team members. We hope to bring in more professional store staff to help provide an extraordinary customer experience, extend our business hours, and spread the joy of our products!

Risks and challenges

Overwhelming demand - Our scanning and postproduction systems have been through multiple test runs to be ensured consistent high quality outputs and now are ready to welcome our customers at different ages and of various heights. Usually after the scanning session, it takes us up to two weeks to get the figurines ready for store pick-up or shipping. In case of overwhelming demand, we will assure our backers the priority to schedule the scan sessions. We are also grateful to have some seasonal workers on standby and they will help us to accelerate the postproduction process to avoid any severe delay.
