Create an Adorable 3D Printed You (+ Free Giveaway!)
How cute is this little darling? Part South Park, part Wii avatar, and totally 3D! New on the 3D printing scene is Mixee Me, a company that lets you turn yourself into a 3D printed action figure. At just 3 inches tall, maybe these figurines aren’t exactly ready for “action” but they’re the perfect addition your desk decor or mantel. Not to mention being a pretty awesome stocking stuffer. And, drumroll please, we’re giving 3 of them away!!
Powered by Shapeways, Mixee‘s mission is to allow anyone to design and buy 3D printed products. Mixee Me is their first product and, clearly, is all about personalization. Each Mixee Me is $25 and ships in 1-2 weeks. Warning: Mixees are definitely addictive when it comes to gift-giving. Once you’ve made more than 3, you can go ahead and call yourself Sir Mixee-a-Lot. That’s right. Sir Mixee-a-Lot.
Here’s how to make your Mixee:
Start by choosing a head shape that suits you. Then add eyes, mouth, hair, shirt, pants, and shoes, and you’re done. You can even upload t-shirt logos and write custom text if you want to take your Mixee to the next level. We love this little Pacman graphic!
