So a few months ago I saw an advert on facebook for 3D printing at ASDA. I clicked on it and was amazed that this was available in the UK, so I just had to have one. I’m a big collector of mini figures so having one of myself would be cool. Printing 3D models of people has been around for a few years in other countries and is constantly being developed to become more accurate and realistic. And at £60 it is now much more affordable.
I went to the Rawtenstall ASDA in early July to be scanned by the lady with a camera gun. It took over 800 pictures in a few minutes that were put together live on the laptop screen. Then I had 4 weeks to wait while it was printed elsewhere, before going back to collect it.
The photo booth is travelling the country a few days at each store. The dates are on the website and I would recommend ringing up to book as turning up on the day there may be no slots left. It’s also good that you can get a refund if you don’t like the look of yourself once it’s printed.
After the initial shock of seeing my model for the first time, I’m really happy with how it turned out. However I can’t look at it for too long as it gives me the creeps a bit
