ROCK HILL, S.C., Nov. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced the commercial availability of its 3DMe® Photobooth to bring the 3DMe experience to the retail and event floor space. With its new compact size, the 3DMe Photobooth uses 3D scanning technology for instant, full-color photorealistic 3D face capture. Like taking a picture, a 3DMe scan is instantaneous and can then be used to personalize over 200 customizable 3DMe figurines using the 3D portrait on the photobooth screen. The resulting data model, which takes just 15 seconds to generate, can be ordered from the 3DMe Photobooth app for printing and fulfillment through 3DS' consumer ecommerce and cloud platform, Cubify.
