The 8 steps for turning raw 3D scans into 3D printed figurines

In this post we are going to give an overview on what needs to happen to a raw 3D scan before it becomes a full color 3D printed figurine.

One of the most overlooked items when people set up their 3D figurine business is how much time and effort it takes to turn a raw 3D scan into a product their end customer is happy with.  All of the steps outlined in this article are automatically done for you if you are using Twindom's fulfillment services and worldwide network of 3D print partners. If you are not using Twindom's fulfillment services, then you should expect it to take multiple hours of manual digital post-processing to turn the raw data produced by your full body 3D scanner into something that will turn out well when printed on a full color 3D printer.

Applications for fitness that go beyond standard AR/VR

In the health and fitness vertical, AR and VR companies have primarily  focused on fitness applications so far. From a conservative business stance, this makes a lot of sense. We all know about the importance of regular physical activity, but historically training programs left much to be desired.

A little over a week ago we got a Magic Leap One delivered to our office. For those unfamiliar, here is a little background on Magic Leap:
