You can do this too – the technology is easily accessible in New Zealand
The Lego block part is so satisfying to watch! 3D printing is getting more advanced and affordable every year. You can now print small scale 3D models in full colour with some visible detail in the textures. There are also portable 3D scanners like the Cubify Sense that you can use to scan anything into a 3D model, even people. In this video the 3D artist creates a the base model using photos taken from multiple angles but 3D scanners could be more accurate and easier to do.
Do you have a project that would require this technology? There are local printing companies in Wellington that have all of the necessary equipment, and Lancer has the software & technical knowledge to make it possible.
