Having successfully designed and built a proof of concept 3D body scanner for the art installation Break the Mould, we are currently developing a more portable and robust 3D body scanning system. We've used the scan data to 3D print mini figures and are also exploring character rigging and Virtual Reality applications using the Oculus Rift. We are experienced in 3D scanning, 3D printing, 3D design and consult on artistic, technical, and fabrication projects.
If you have any questions, comments, or just fancy a chat then drop us an email. We're based in Brighton, UK.
Since we 3D scanned the superb BBC tech correspondents Bill Thompson and Gareth Mitchell for BBC Click at the launch of the Break the Mould installation, 3Dify have had quite a bit of media attention. Here are some highlights.
You can see talented director and filmmaker Sarita Frit's brilliant mini-documentary about Break the Mould and timelapses from the 3d scanning and printing installation on our Vimeo channel. The Brighton digital and creative agency Developing Dreams, who we worked with on Break the Mould, also wrote an excellent indepth blog article.
At the Brighton Digital Festival 2013, 3Dify provided the technology for the interactive installation Break the Mould. People were invited to step inside a giant sculpture, get scanned, digitised, and 3D printed as a mini sculpture. The installation was is in association with digital agency Developing Dreams, and renowned Italian artist Emilia Telese.
Thanks to our Brighton Digital Festival hosts: The Brighton Mini Maker Faire at the Corn Exchange, Jubilee Library, the new Clearleft Gallery where we appeared as part of the Third Veil of The New Sublime, and the Mad Hatter Cafe.
There were many supporters who helped make this a reality: The Arts Council, 3D printer makers extrodinaire Ultimaker, the friendliest filament people in the business Faberdashery, and the immensely talented guys behind Skanect - the best piece of software around for 3d scanning using an Xbox 360 Kinect. Also a big thanks to Brighton's Wired Sussex for their ongoing support and the use of their brilliant digital development space The Fusebox.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to the brilliant open source community who constantly astound with their shared skills, innovation and knowledge. So here's to all the altruistic modders, hardware hackers, coders, forumites, and Github heroes who have helped make this possible. On our journey we've gathered a huge number of bookmarks. We've found the best way to share them amongst our team is a digital mind map, so come and have a browse.
