Artec 3D, one of the global market leaders in 3D scanners, recently unveiled the world’s first high-speed full-body 3D scanner for 3D portraits at Arraya Shopping Centre in Kuwait in conjunction with a Kuwait-based company called 3D Utopia.
The Artec Shapify Booth will help customers experience 3D technologies first hand in a way that’s easy, fun and affordable. It offers a unique new way of capturing life’s most important milestones like graduations, marriages and pregnancies in the form of a shapie – a 3D portrait. A shapie not only gives the one-of-a-kind experience of being scanned in a full-body booth, but is a memorable gift or memento that captures ones unique style and self-expression.
Ideal for venues such as theme parks, shopping malls, outdoor and indoor attractions, the Artec Shapify Booth is perfect for capitalising on existing customer flows and drawing new ones. The booth includes four wide view high resolution 3D scanners, which rotate around the customer, built-in lighting system, a high speed processor and 3D modeling software. The booth scans customers in only 12 seconds; in 5 minutes a detailed 3D model is created automatically and in 15 minutes, the high-quality 3D-printable file is completed. These high-precision scanners, used in the aerospace, medical and manufacturing industries to guarantee quality control, capture even the slightest specifics, down to wrinkles on clothes.
“We are very excited to present our Shapify booth in Kuwait, especially after the positive response we received at the DEAL show in Dubai earlier this year,” shares Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “The Shapify booth has been significantly popular in Asia, the US and Western Europe, and we are thrilled to be sharing our 3D technologies with consumers in the Middle East. Although 3D technology, specifically 3D printing, is widely heard of in the news, it has not reached the stage where it is easily accessible to the average consumer. We aim to change this and believe the Artec Shapify Booth can become many people’s first interaction with 3D technologies. Through the Shapify booth, we also endeavour to showcase the opportunities that 3D scanning and printing technology presents to enterprises and companies in the Middle East.”
Artec’s highly sophisticated software automatically merges together hundreds of generated images to produce a full-body 3D image file ready for 3D printing, without any post-processing. Finally, the digital model is sent to a 3D printing centre to make a full colour mini-statue, which can be delivered to or collected by the customer.
“We have been the authorised partner for Artec 3D in the GCC for over a year and we’ve started marketing Artec handheld scanners. We are glad to collaborate for their first Shapify Booth in Kuwait. We are optimistic that ‘Shapie’, the 3D version of your body, will take the ‘selfie’ concept to the next level. As 3D printing and scanner suppliers, we are in a position to give a complete proposition to clients in the region,” adds Ashish Panjabi, COO, Jacky’s Business Solutions LLC.
