What is the process to create a MiniMe?
A 360 scan is completed in approximately 1-2 minutes and then downloaded to Key West in special software that is returned in 10 minutes for your viewing approval and size selection to purchase. Your approved scan is then entered into the queue for 3D printing on state-of-the-art 3D printers so that high quality is always the end result. Please see our video on the website to view the whole process
How many people can be in one scan?
The best results are no more than 3 people in the same scan. If you would like more we typically take one scan of the additional people and then add to the statue stand that you pick so you can add as many as you like or even replace with newer versions of yourself in future years.
Can I bring my infant or pet?
Handheld infants or small pets can be added for a small additional charge. Non held hand animals are treated as their own single scan but must be able to sit very still. Prices vary depending upon the size of the pet and shape of its body.
Is it safe to be 3D captured?
This is completely safe with the imaging non- invasive and does not use x-rays at all. It is very similar to having your picture taken with a cell phone.
What should I wear?
We recommend that you wear bright colors, large patterns or textures as they print very well. All white and all black are not as dynamic so add some color!
Statues are like any fine ornament and pieces sticking out can be fragile and will be avoided like large hoop earrings or oversize finger jewelry. Tattoos show as they are on your skin with no problem.
Highly reflective items such as glasses cannot be scanned but we can blue tape mask your glasses or have some you can use. They are then filled in as normal in the editing process. Shoes or sandals must be worn, no delicate toes to break off!
How long before I receive my MiniMe Statue?
Typically the production time is dependent upon demand and time of year. We encourage a scanning appointment well in advance of important events such as wedding toppers and holiday gifts.
In general you can expect a 4-6 week production turnaround period. We monitor all in process and will make sure you are updated along the way.
Do you provide discounts for larger events on site?
We offer discounts depending upon number of attendees. We must set up in advance on site and have the necessary scan tent and equipment plus WIFI in place to make each scan smooth and carefree so that the focus remains on the happy event. This may include sports teams, graduations, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and of course the favorite of all, weddings!
