We have covered several companies which have been offering services where they 3D print small figures in the likeness of people, which are modeled after 3D scans, or even pictures taken with a smartphone camera. From wax-2bobblehead dolls, to large 3D models resembling a particular person, there is certainly no lack of choices available to consumers. Most of these 3D printed figures range in size from a couple of inches tall to about 18 inches in height, giving consumers many options which they can decide upon, based on their budgets.

As the 3D printing space becomes ever more popular, the novelty of such services may eventually wear off, unless of course there is continued innovation.  One company, based in China, called Qingdao Unique Products Develop Co. Ltd, is doing just that by offering life-sized 1:1 wax 3D prints of people.

Surely you have all seen the amazing work done on wax figures at the Madame Tussauds museum. These figures take months on end to create by hand, and cost more money than most people could ever hope to afford. In addition, hundreds, if not thousands of individual measurements need to be taken and calculated to ensure an anatomically precise model is created. This may not be the case for much longer though.

Qingdao Unique Products Develop Co., Ltd’s Anyprint brand has created a 3D printer, unlike any other, which they will be making available to businesses worldwide. The printer, which was revealed last month at the Second World 3D printing technology Industry Conference and Exposition held in Qingdao, Shandong, is a staggering two meters (approximately 6’6″) in height, allowing it to print 1:1 accurate 3D wax models of most human beings. According to the company, this is the world’s largest wax 3D printer on the market, and it uses fused deposition modeling technology.

“The world’s largest person-size 3D wax statues printer successfully developed by Unique Technology will dramatically change the rules of future characters, cartoon dolls and other cultural and creative market,” states the company’s blog.

The exact specifications of this printer have not been released as of yet, with further details forthcoming. Qingdao Unique Products Develop Co., Ltd is headquartered in Shandong, China, and has been in business for 13 years.  They sell a variety of 3D printers, both small and large, and even custom build printers for their clients specific needs.  Let us know what you think about this new giant wax 3D printer in the 1:1: wax printer forum thread on 3DPB.com.
