Create Your Realistic Mini-Me in 3D Figurine from Home

Category: News
Artec Group has launched the first 3D-scanning and printing service available at home.

Artec has announced a new, very cool cloning service for people with Microsoft Kinect for Windows or Kinect for Xbox 360 equipment. Kinect users can individually scan themselves, friends and family, upload the scan to the website ( and receive a 3D figurine sent to their address. This isn't a 3D image - it's a solid, 3D figurine, like a miniature statue - looking just like you, only smaller.

Your clone figurine in monochrome or color is 1/20th your actual height.  It's made of either white or multicolored plastic material and, if you are so inclined you can use your artistic skills to paint it. 

You need to have a Microsoft Kinect for either Xbox 360 or Windows and a PC computer.  You need the following to scan yourself using

  • Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 or Microsoft Kinect for Windows
  • Windows 7 x 64 bit or Windows 8
  • Intel Core I3 or later with at least 4 GB RAM
  • Audio Speakers
  • USB 2.0
  • And, of course, an Internet connection.

Prices start at $59 with free delivery to the USA and Europe .
