People can now get their hands on a ‘mini-me’ to take home with the latest Boxpark pop-up bringing 3D body scanning to Shoreditch.
Tech startup 3Dify capture a 360 degree image of a person to create a miniature printed sculpture. Participants must remain still while being scanned and an average scan takes about a minute.
The company has immortalised couples, families, celebrities and many more, from a comedian in a bear suit to a young ballerina – to create a completely bespoke piece of artwork.
At this year’s Tech4good awards, 3Dify even scanned and 3D printed Paralympic Games gold medallist Hannah Cockroft MBE and television presenter Mariella Frostrup.
The 3Dify pop-up shop will also feature demonstrations of 3D desktop printers Ultimaker.

3Dify co-founder Ian Byrne said: “We want to make 3D body scanning interesting and affordable. It is always intriguing to see what people bring to the process, some come in costume, bring favourite toys, musical instruments, skateboards, or simply dress for the occasion. Being able to see yourself in 3D is still a novel experience for the majority of people.”
The pop-up takes place from October 20 to 26. Booking is essential. Go to 3dify.co.uk.
