As evidenced by the Google Arts and Culture portrait app that recently went viral, the practice of portraiture will always be alive and kicking for as long as human beings remain sentient on this planet.

One of the most popular use cases for Twindom's full body 3D scanners is people who take them to cosplay and halloween-themed events. The above is an image of a 3D printed figurine from someone who dressed up in a RX-78-2 Gundam suit at an event that Seattle-based Holodeck 3D Studios did with a Twinstant Mobile full body 3D scanner. The end result not only makes a great memory for the attendee, but shows how people can make a 3D printed action figure by getting 3D scanned in their costume and then have the 3D scan 3D printed. The full color 3D print was fulfilled using Twindom's full color 3D printing service on a Projet 660 3D printer.
