3D face printing is a powerful tool when it comes to facial reconstruction. We're not talking about the medical type of facial reconstruction, although certain types of medical 3D printers can be used to print skin grafts onto damaged or burned skin. Instead what we're talking about is creating a face from various pieces of information just from photographs.
3D printing can be used this way to recreate faces of people from history. It was famously used to recreate the face of Lucy, the australopithecine woman whose 3.2 million year old skeleton was found in 1974 in Ethiopia.
It's also been used to recreate the faces of soldiers whose skulls were found in ancient battles. Police have even used the technology to create facial reconstructions of unknown victims in cold cases.
What we can contribute is 3D face printing. This allows a wide range of uses from the technology – we can create everything from sculpture to movie prop to historical recreation. You can send us a few photos and we can design a 3D printed facial sculpture for you. If you're in the area of our Houston 3D printing shop, you can even come by and have a photo taken of the person whose face you'd like reproduced. If you're a designer yourself, you can send us a design of your own, and we can help you iron out any difficulties you're having in the design.
3D face printing can be done in any number of mediums, offering a range of colors and textures. The detail can be broad or very defined depending on your needs. We can also add extra features to make creature and alien designs if you wish. We ask customers to respect the privacy rights of others when it comes to 3D face printing. You wouldn't want a stranger printing your face without permission, after all. With that consent, 3D face printing opens a lot of creative uses for 3D printing technology. If you'd like to learn more about the process or work with us on the design, you can call our Houston 3D printing shop and learn more.
