Baltimore Pop-Up 3D Printing Store Lets You Turn Your Face Into A Gift


Looking for Christmas gift ideas, but can’t find anything personal enough? A new 3D scanning and printing store is opening in Baltimore Friday that will let you spread the holiday cheer by gifting jewelry, bobbleheads and ceramic coffee mugs featuring scale models of your face.

The Bmore3D Store in the Canton neighborhood of Baltimore was created as part of a collaboration between local 3D artists and designers. One of the stores biggest draws is ShapeShot — the first fully-automated 3D photo booth.

“People can walk in, sit down, and hit the big red button and it takes a 3D scan of their face,” says Todd Blatt, a 3D artist who helped organize the store. “From there, any products that you want your face on can be created. By default we have six of them, including stuff like a little mini-figurine with your head on it and a Christmas tree ornament.”
