Tokyo-based Clone Factory is now creating mini clone dolls from 3D modelling and printing technology. Fully processed in the company’s akihabra office, the service is capable of replicating hairstyles, makeup and clothes to fully encapsulate a special moment such as the customer’s wedding day.
To start the process, high-res photographs are taken of the customer’s head from a number of DSLR cameras at multiple angles. the information is then processed by a computer to create a detailed 3D model which is then fed into a 3D printer. painted to fully imitate their real-life counter part, the cloning serve costs 1,770 USD.
This is what objects look like after printing. The remaining powdery plaster needs to be removed.
