This company/individual does is..... And the resulting figures are extraordinary (I've seen them in the flesh). Driver leaning over, with his tie dangling loose - and the tie printed perfectly - and to scale even in thickness..... In 4mm!

Amazing detail. Id like to see how well the detail holds up on the smaller scales but his figures are some of the best I have seen. I have been researching 3D printing myself and want to take the plunge but the high definition units are still on the pricy side.

Someone on Shapeways scanned some photos of some of the well-known people on the RR I model and somehow made some very good 3D prints of them. I bought them both (the most expensive figures I've ever bought) but I'm told this type of finish is really tough to paint. I'm trying to figure out how best to paint these...

Howdy Lee...I hate to talk price but (and you can PM me) how much does Shapeways charge for figures like that?

Perspiring minds just may need to know

Hello,

here are the results of my first test of scanning real persons and print them in 3d.

The pictures are showing the figures from 3 sides.

I sprayed the figures with grey primer to see more detail.







Here you see the figures with a 3d-printed car for works.





The figues and the workers car is in O-scale 1:45.

Greetings
Kalle
