QuickScann3D Has Your Full Body Duplicate
Everyone needs extra copies of themselves; don't be stingy, go to QuickScann3D in La Jolla and then spread yourself around a little.
We have assembled the State of the Art 3D equipment to capture your life images. This equipment coupled with the required expertise, we can capture fully body detailed images of those important to you and provide these in a detailed 3D statue.
Q: What can the scan be used for:
A: Scans can be used to create 3D sculptures as gifts for kids and keepsakes for memories. You may also be able to utilize your scan with future technology as well.
Q: Is the scanning process safe?
A: Yes, it is a high performance SLR and data capture cameras
Q: Can I buy the data and 3D print myself.
A: Yes we sell a data package; however please investigate the cost to print prior
Q: Can we have a family or group captured in 3D
A: Yes, but to accurately capture the data each individual will need to be scanned separately
In his excellent 1954 novella The Houses of Iszm, Jack Vance wrote about feeler-planes that enabled the creation of incredibly detailed 3D images in just a minute or two:
He stood rigid as feeler-planes brushed down his body. In a glass dome a three-dimensional simulacrum of himself six inches high took form.

Feeler-planes were used by the Iszic to create tri-type records that were so detailed (high resolution), fingerprints were captured in three-dimensional models of the subject's hands.
