  • (1888PressRelease) June 14, 2015 - We are proud to announce that Minichua has been invited to join the Digital Mission to Maker Faire Shenzhen, sponsored by the UKTI and the CBBC. We will present some of our makes as well as our platform. We can't wait to meet you there!!!

    Minichua lets you customize dog 3D models at will, have them manufactured and delivered anywhere in the world. The figurines are produced by the major service providers, using 3D printing technologies. A few online services already help you print your pet. But, you must choose between readily available but limited models and very realistic but long to obtain models. The desire to combine the advantages of both methods led to the creation of Minichua.

    3D printed selfie figurines are now popular in 3D printing. The trend has spread to many cities worldwide. The next step is to move from human mini-me's to animal mini-me's. They come next because 3D models of pets are more difficult to acquire. You cannot ask a pet to stay perfectly still for 15 minutes.

    There were two challenges to get realistic dog figurines: modelling the body and rendering the coat. The solution was to create a range of predefined models for each breed with coats that can be personalized. You can apply your own photos on the model or you can modify the provided coats. A prototype website has been developed and sample 3D models have been designed.
