Are you an artist, maker, baker, hardcore technologist or digital dabbler?

3Dify is bringing 3D technology to the masses. Whether you’re an artist, baker, maker, hardcore technologist, digital dabbler, or someone whose only tablet is kept in the medicine box, the people behind this tech start-up would love to hear what you think.

All those who complete the quick survey (5 minutes – we promise) before 15th May will be entered into a prize draw. The winner will be invited to bring themselves and a friend or relative to 3Dify’s studio where you’ll be scanned, made into interactive 3D images which you can embed in social media, and have 3D printed mini sculptures of yourselves sent to you.

3D printing mini sculptures of yourself – a new trend spreading like wildfire?

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn for regular updates.

With the help of Italian installation artist Emilia Telese and some technological wizardry from 3Dify, Developing Dreams are dragging the concept of the photo booth kicking and screaming into the age of 3D printing and low cost 3D scanning.
