In 2013, we profiled 3D printing company Captured Dimensions, a Richardson-based company whose goal is to provide people with a futuristic way of making memories. And their technology has only gotten better. Now, the company uses more than 80 DSLR cameras arranged in a 360 degree array to take a super hi-res photo of a person, pet or object from almost every angle imaginable and then create a miniature version using a brand new, production-grade sandstone printer.
To shrink themselves into statues, it used to be that customers would visit Captured Dimensions' nondescript, warehouse-like offices in Richardson to have their photo taken and a print made. The offices served not just as a studio, but as a storage and work facility. But Thursday, the company will open their first retail location in Frisco under the name PhotoSculpt. "The hope for the store is to turn the experience into a more family-friendly one and to offer a more streamlined experience for people wanting to 3D print their loved ones," says company CEO and co-founder Jordan Williams.More »
