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.
