What is a 3D full-body selfie? What is a 3D bust selfie?
A 3D full-body selfie is a miniaturized, proportionately-scaled version, in the form of a 3D-printed figurine, of a single person or multiple people from head to toe. A 3D bust selfie is only from head to roughly the chest area.
What is a “doop?”
A doop is our term for a 3D selfie or 3D bust. It also helps with our catchphrases “Have you been doopt,” “get doopt,” “I’ve been doopt,” and a couple more.
What can I wear when I’m scanned?

What kinds of 3D figurines are available?
We offer two types of doops: Full body and bust. A full-body figurine is a miniaturized, proportionately-scaled version of a single person or multiple people from head to toe. A bust is only from head to roughly the chest area. The bust figurine has a different scanning process so please contact us for more information.
How long does a 3D scanning session take?
Depending on how you’re scanned, one method takes less than a half-a-second while the other method could be a minute or two. Then we preview some of the images. You’re done. Yet we ask for 30 minutes of your time to complete everything. If you have more than one “look” (change of clothing) then you’ll be spending a little more time with us.
How will I be 3D scanned?
We have a mobile, custom-built, exclusive to us, walk-in 3D scanner that takes less than the blink of an eye to scan. We like that it’s fast for kids and animals who don’t sit still. If you don’t mind staying still for a minute, maybe two, or for other objects, we have a handheld scanner for other scanning applications.
How many people can be scanned at one time?
As many as you want, but seriously, the 3D print will probably end up being a big ball so we recommend up to 3 people, depending on how everyone poses.
Can I use props and accessories when I’m scanned?
Long thin objects like canes, swords, poles and tennis raquets (the strings are too thin) that are far from the body aren’t good unless they are held closely to your body. Open jackets, collars and thin clothing can cause printing challenges also. For other items it’s best to check with us first.
Can I get my pet scanned?
For pet parents, their pets are like family. We like to scan families so your pets are welcome. However, there are certain limitations and restrictions concerned for our furry or other-skinned (feathers, scales, for example) animals. A pet equivalent to the small dog category is the smallest size we can scan. For more info, visit our fur-friend-3d page
What about children being scanned?
Kids are very welcomed. Since they’re not to keen on sitting still for more than a second we’ll use the walk-in scanner that takes a fraction of a second to scan. If we used our handheld scanner they could end up having more than one head in the scan. Unless you think two heads are better than one the walk-in scanner is the better choice.
When should I receive my doop?
The expected turnaround time till you receive your doop is about six to eight weeks. Why so long, you ask? Once we have the raw scan from your scanning session, one of our 3D artists gets to work on cleaning any imperfections. That process may take about a week. Remember you’re not the only one getting scanned and fixed up. Once the artist is done, it’s sent to our printers, which may take them up to six weeks to complete. Remember your doop is not the only one getting printed. Another week for post prep and your doop is ready for pickup or delivery.
What is the 3D figurine made of?
A full-color doop is made of a sand-like material called “sandstone,” which is a unique clay powder compressed and colored and closely feels like sand or sandpaper. A doop is not a toy and should be carefully handled. The doop can also be coated with a clear coating (sorry but this is an extra charge) to make them a little stronger (by not much), smoother and glossy.
Besides sandstone, can the 3D figurine be made from other materials?
Of course, but it may not be as colorful. Other than sandstone, we can use such materials as plastic (various types), standard metals (aluminum, steel, brass, bronze) and even precious metals like gold, silver and platinum. But be prepared to pay an arm and leg to have yourself in gold.
How should I care for my 3D sandstone figurine?
Please visit this page for more information on caring for your doop
If you can edit a photo can you also edit my 3D figurine?
It’ll cost you extra but, yes, we can provide custom 3D scan sculpting to make “enhancements” to your doop. It’s your heart’s desire what we can do to your doop as long as it’s decent. Plus our printers have restrictions on what can be printed.
Do you offer worldwide shipping?
Yes, we can ship to the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom. We’ll let you know your shipping cost to those countries or to the mainland U.S.
Is 3D scanning safe or should I be concerned about being scanned?
For our walk-in circular scanner, think of a 3D scan like being photographed with a camera or a cell phone except there are about 100 cameras going off at once. It’s the same thing. It’s not invasive and doesn’t emit anything out of the ordinary. Your smartphone probably emits more radiation than being 3D scanned. For our handheld scanner, it uses a small laser light to help with it’s scanning process. The laser is not that powerful so there’s no need to be concerned about it.
I’d like to get a 3D figurine to be used as wedding cake topper, but I don’t want my fiance to see what I”m wearing. What do I do?
Covering his eyes helps. Then he won’t see your dress. Well he won’t be able to see anything. Plus it wouldn’t look good for your doop to have his eyes closed. How about borrowing a dress or going for a casual look? Or do separate scanning sessions and we’ll place your two doops together on a platform base.
Where will I be scanned? Do you have a store?
We currently house our studio in Pearl City. We are looking for a retail location or a place where we can co-locate with another business. So if you know of a place, preferably inexpensive, please let us know.
Can I book a private session so no one will know I’m getting scanned?
Most definitely you can be scanned in secrecy. We can cover you head-to-toe and walk you into our scanning studio so no one will see you. Or we can scan you after hours (7pm) when there’s little to no people around. Or we can pack up our scanner and come to you, as long as you have adequate space for us to set up. There’s an extra charge to come to you so be prepared to pay more. Sorry.
What if I don’t like my doop and want a refund?
Since your doop is unique and custom-made just for you, we probably can’t resell it to someone else. Thus we can’t give a refund if you’re not satisfied. Sorry. We do our best to make your doop realistic, and it looks very much like you. Just a little grittier. And the 3D printers used to print your doop are the best currently available. Please see our Refunds and Exchanges Policy page for more information.
Besides people and pets, can you scan other objects?
We’ll have to see what you’d like scanned. We may have another 3D scanner that may be more suitable to the object being scanned.
I damaged my doop. What can I do?
Do you need a paperweight? Just kidding. Certain types of breakage can be fixed with good ole’ fashioned super glue. It’s not good to use a water-based glue like you used in elementary school as the water in the glue could affect your doop. However, if your doop is beyond repair it could be time to replace it. If you’d like the same one please return it to us (we need to verify it’s the original doop) and we can offer you a discount on a new one. Or update your look with a new scan and a new doop. Your choice.
Do you offer discounts for bulk or corporate orders?
Of course we do. Please contact us for bulk and corporate orders. We think you’ll like the savings. Please contact us for more information.
Any other questions?
