Why not take a souvenir photo of yourself with your friends and family–in 3D?

FabCafe is collaborating with K’s Design Lab to offer the “3D Snap & Touch” service. Come experience creating a figurine of yourself using a 3D full-body scanner and 3D printing technology. This service will be available Saturdays (reservation required).

You’ll be able to take home your 3D data and figurine the very same day. (*Depending on reservation status, you may receive your figurine the following day.)

Simultaneous scans of 2 or 3 (*3D Snap only) people are available.


If you plan on creating a figurine, you can’t make any unstable poses. (if you’re only doing a scan, then you can make any pose you want)


You can view your scan data right there on the spot.

Watch in amazement as your alter ego slowly materializes on the large monitor before your very eyes!


For those purchasing figurines, after the scan is complete, our specialized staff will use the 3D data to start modeling your figurine. This should take about 30 minutes, depending on the accuracy of the scan data.

The image data will then be printed using FabCafe’s 3D printer “Cube.”

Watching the figurine be created little by little from the feet up, in just about an hour, is a strange feeling indeed.


Here’s a lineup of some complete figurines (featuring the FabCafe staff).


Download your own 3D scan data using the custom 3DViewer iOS app and enjoy a 360-degree view of yourself.
