3D Printing is spreading its wings to reach literally hundreds of different industries. Its saving lives, cleaning up the environment, and making manufacturing more efficient. It’s also entertaining us, and has a certain cool factor about it which makes companies like Pinla 3D a success.

pinla-1There are several companies out there offering tiny 3D printed models of one’s self for prices which range all over the place, but up until a few days ago, a life-size 1:1 3D print of yourself was virtually impossible to obtain. Well, leave it up to a Chinese company called Pinla3D to take things up a notch. Pinla3D has recently opened up a storefront at Nanjing’s Wondercity Mall, located in China’s Jiangsu province.

At the store customers can go in, get a full body scan, which takes between 2-3 minutes, choose from one of 15 different sized statues they would like to be printed out in, and place their order. It will then take approximately two weeks for the company to print our your statue, and have it available for pickup.

Pinla3d’s smallest statue avaalable measures just 12.5cm in height, and costs RMB998 (approximately $160). The largest is a true 1:1 life-size statue which will set a customer back RMB175,000 (approximately $28,550).pinlaa-2

The detail, color and accuracy of the prints are quite amazing according to recent customers at the new location. Printed with a high strength composite polymer material, the finished product has a feel similar to a ceramic.

“I bought a small statue today for my girlfriend. It’s a way for her to remember me while I travel on business. I dropped the first one and it broke, so be careful,” warned Zhang Wei, a 28 year old customer at the recently opened location.

If you are in the area and decide you are interested in one of these 3D prints, it is suggested by the company that you make an appointment via their website or the phone. Discuss these life size statues at the forum.
