French 3D printing firm Sculpteo has created an app that converts smartphone photos into 3D images, which can be transformed into ceramic objects like bowls, plates and figurines.
The app’s interface lets users change the size, dimensions and colour of their personalised object, as well as select a material. Then Sculpteo gives a quote, which can be ordered. The company says: ‘this is the first app ever to transform human data into a 3D-printed object via a smartphone. It enables people to have a personalised object that they have created themselves.’
