It’s good to know that while we are all busy evolving into the best humans we can be, so are our selfies. Are you feeling like a musical selfie? A handy selfie? Soccer mom selfie? The list can eventually grow as infinitely as our moods, events, and varying expressions, and now you can put them into solid, 3D printed form for your loved ones.
Adding a new element to ‘being there in person’ or accentuating a long-distance relationship, UStatue is offering you a way to wow friends and family with a perfect looking yours truly, just in time for the holidays.
Whether you would rather see a two-dimensional photo of that special someone or hold them as a 3D figurine in the palm of your hand, you can have it both ways now. UStatue offers you a super fast, affordable, and fun way to take images to the third dimension with personalized, 3D printed statuettes.
Making a true impression from UStatue is not only a novelty, but it’s a hoot to create! Check out the process at UStatue, where either they can create something for you or you can create your own statue in several quick — and amusing — steps. The user interface at UStatue is streamlined and extremely easy to use. You should be able to complete the order for your 3D printed statue or statuette in around five minutes. There are more than 50 templates to customize, and UStatue is continuously adding more. You also choose the size of your statue.
- Choose your body style.
- Select hair style, color, and accessories.
- Upload your photo.
UStatue then builds, prints, and mails your customized UStatue.
If you like to take control of the reins yourself, you can upload your photo and manipulate it to also choose head size and skin tone, while choosing all the other options as well. You will receive an instant preview of your statue that will be 3D printed and mailed to you by UStatue.
There are dozens of hair and body styles to choose from, and a variety of ‘characters’ as well to choose as the foundation for your image matched with a statue.
To make it even easier, you can create your UStatue using their mobile app suited to either Android or iOS. The price point for the UStatue 3D printed selfie statues starts at $29.99. The most expensive body type — the guitarist — is still only $99.99, though, keeping every available model under the $100 mark. The statues are a fantastic idea for so many celebrations and promotions — as well as a great replacement or accent to those dusty family photos sitting on your spouse’s desk at work.
Have you been the inspiration for a 3D printed statue or is this something you’d like to order for the holidays? Tell us about it in the UStatue’s 3D Printed Selfies forum at 3DPB.com.
