Solid Memories LLC. 3D scanning & printing to make custom sculptures.

Product details

Affordable. Timeless.

For thousands of years and throughout the world, sculptures have been greatly valued but done for only some people due to the cost. 

With the inventions of high resolution scanners and 3D printers, now anyone can have a customized sculpture at a much lower price. 

We live in a 3D world: sculptures capture all three dimensions. 

A personal, customized sculpture.

The sculptures in the above gallery were made by our staff.

We fully expect your sculptures will also be stunning!

Celebrate the special people, relationships and moments of your life with an elegant and realistic sculpture that will be cherished by you, gift recipients and families for years. 

Products and introductory prices

3D scan and DVD: $9

  • The scan is done with a sophisticated Artec Eva 3D scanner that uses structured light (not lasers). This same type of scanner was used to make a presidential bust of President Obama (please see YouTube(R)) and can detect resolution to less than 1 mm.
  • A scan typically takes 5 minutes followed by 5 minutes for a computer to process the data in the 1000+ images to make an approximately one million point polygon mesh at which time you will see it then receive a DVD with this newly made raw 3D image.

Editing the 3D file: free.

  • All raw 3D images need to be edited before being made into a sculpture, so we will do all of the following unless you specify otherwise: crop shape, adjust orientation, remove artifacts, remove wrinkles and acne, lift eyelids, deepen and widen pupils, remove bags under the eyes, slim the skin under the jaw and smooth hair.
  • We will then email you an image of the edited file and, if you approve of the edited image and authorize, we will then make the sculpture (or multiple if you wish) in the color and size that you request.

Sculptures: $19-39

  • All sculptures are mounted on non-laminated, solid marble pedestals with laser engraved nameplates and genuine 24-Kt gold leaf borders.
