Photoshaper live!


We just launched our Photoshaper this is a tool that can take one of your photographs and turn it into a 3D printed image. The result is similar to a frieze or a bas relief and when lit from behind makes for a lovely effect. The Photoshaper is an attempt by us to create a tool that anyone can use to take anything and turn it into a 3D printed object. Of course the resulting Lightsculpture is not full 3D but rather has depth based on the contrast in your actual image. It will also look 3D when held up in the light. Excluding tax but including shipping, the Photoshaper Lightsculptures cost $41. If you want to make your own Lightsculptures you can do so here. Below is a video showing a Lightsculpture in the light.
