I3DU

The I3DU franchise will enable you to bring the power of 3D scanning coupled with 3D printing right inside your business. The entire franchise is centred around the EasyTwin 3D scanner and its ability to quickly and accurately capture any facial characteristics and create a 3D printed figurine or other face related product, based on the scanned face. Easytwin is an automated 3D scanner that creates 3D lifelike models of organic shapes in a couple of seconds. This solution gives shops the ability to offer personalized 3D printed products like avatars, figurines, bobbleheads, face related products (like mask, head, cuphead, fingerhead etc.) and many more to consumers directly from within existing retail stores, malls, photography studios, leisure sites, museums and so on.

The EASYtwin device consists of a 3D scanning device which is totally autonomous and doesn’t require any external system or accessories for operating. The EASYtwin specifications are:

9 HD cameras assembled in an aluminium frame integrated into a designed injection molded plastic shell. Embedded, non-dazzling lighting environment. Decoration of the shell is at customer’s choice.
Tablet or tactile screen connected through WIFI to the computer with an application for triggering cameras, launching the creation process and the framework for the embedded user application.
Desktop version. Size : 700mm x 700mm x 500mm – Weight : 5 Kg. Only 12V components are installed into the shell. No risk for end users.
Only an 110-220v AC/DC plug and a Ethernet connection are required. Maintenance setups are managed remotely or locally with a very simple calibration procedure.
To scan, Easytwin takes multiple pictures at varying angles of the scanned object and creates a 3D model within 30 seconds. The organic shape is then displayed on any kind of device and is ready for 3D printing. The solution is unique world-wide and is far superior to any photo-to-3D solutions offered, both in terms of speed and quality. Most photo-to-3D services, although they have the advantage of being able to operate remotely via the internet (i.e. local presence is not necessary), they are not fully automated processes, they require aligning and post processing in order to achieve satisfactory results and have posture limitations as usually the picture that needs to be converted must be taken in a specific way (by contrast Easy twin can capture in seconds any facial expression in 3D)
INNOVATIVE IDEAS

The I3DU Franchise offers a complete "Shop within a Shop" franchise deal that includes the following:

The software can also be customised according to your needs and any figurine or 3D model of your choice can be included, offering the potential for an unlimited number of new products for your shop…your imagination is the limit!
The 3D Printing support

I3DU will take over the entire 3D printing process.

I3DU will take over the entire 3D printing process. Any 3D scan orders, taken from within the store with the EASYtwin scanner, will be automatically sent to I3DU for 3D printing. After scanning the shop will sell the 3D printed products ordered to the client at retail prices. I3DU will supply the 3D printed items to the store at wholesale prices. Once completed I3DU will either ship the 3D printed figurines or other face related products directly to the customer or to the store for collection.
Competitive pricing

The cost of 3D printing mainly has to do with the materials used.

The cost of 3D printing mainly has to do with the materials used (in our case, the powder, the binder, the colour ink and the infiltrant used for post processing). A little known element of the cost of 3D printing however is the initial high cost of acquisition for the printer. 3D print offices and factories who offer 3D print services all have to account for the amortisation cost (due to the initial high cost of acquisition) when calculating the cost of 3D printing. There are several formulas that account amortisation for as little as 30% to as much as 80% of the printing cost. I3DU’s Projet 660 Pro 3D printer has been acquired with the aid of ESPA funding that was available and so is able to substantially reduce the amortisation portion of the 3D printing cost and pass this saving to the store who can in turn opt for more attractive pricing schemes and pass this saving to the customer. I3DU also operates a price match policy so if you find anywhere cheaper 3D print services from a Projet 660 Pro, let us know and we will do our best to match or beat the price.

I3DU FACE & BODY STARTER
  • Knowledge Transfer
  • The 3D Printing support
  • Competitive pricing
  • Comprehensive Franchise deal
  • Short Range High Accuracy infrared 3D scanner
  • EasyTwin Face scanner

I3DU will demonstrate to the photographer how they can use existing state of the art cloud services and software that will convert 2D photographs taken by any of the existing DSLR cameras or other electronic devices to a 3D model. I3DU will also work with the photographer in order to streamline the process of capturing the numerous photos required for the successful creation of a 3D head model (setting up the cameras in the correct positions and angles) as well as the process of converting the I3DU face and head model to a 3D printable product. There are various product categories that can be created from just a I3DU face and head model such as: 3D Head portrait in a Frame, 3D Portrait (Hollow and Solid), Cup head, Fingerhead, Life mask and many more

I3DU will take over the entire 3D printing process. Any 3D print orders, will be sent to I3DU for 3D printing. I3DU will supply the 3D printed items to the photographer at wholesale prices who in turn will be able to sell them at retail.

The cost of 3D printing is heavily influenced by the manufacturing cost that has to do with the materials used (in our case, the powder, the binder, the colour ink and the infiltrant used for post processing). A little known element of the manufacturing cost of 3D printing however is the initial high cost of acquisition of a professional 3D printer. 3D print offices and factories who offer 3D print services all have to account for the amortisation cost (due to the initial high cost of acquisition) when calculating the cost of 3D printing. There are several formulas that account amortisation for as little as 30% to as much as 80% of the manufacturing cost. I3DU’s Projet 660 Pro 3D printer has been acquired with the aid of ESPA funding that was available and so is able to substantially reduce the amortisation portion of the 3D printing cost and pass this saving to the store who can in turn opt for more attractive and competitive pricing schemes and pass this saving to the customer. I3DU also operates a price match policy so if you find anywhere cheaper 3D print services from a Projet 660 Pro, let us know and we will do our best to match or beat the price.

A comprehensive franchise guide and contract will be offered to businesses interested in adopting the I3DU FACE franchise. The guide will describe the entire business model and operation in every detail. The contract has been drafted by legal professionals considering most of the foreseen issues.

I3DU will provide the photographer with a short range high accuracy 3D scanner that uses infrared light to quickly and accurately capture three dimensional objects with full colour resolution. The scanner is ideal for capturing faces and heads at much faster speeds than the photo-to-3D conversion method and will also enable the photographer to extend to full body scanning. Full body scanning is traditionally an difficult operation that requires very expensive hardware, making the low budget short range 3D scanner unique in its offering. With full body capture capabilities the photographer can include in his portfolio apart from face related 3D printed products, also full body 3D printed avatars of customers.

The I3DU FACE & BODY PRO offers a franchise deal well suited to Photographers and Photo Studios that has everything included in the I3DU FACE & BODY BASIC franchise as well as the inclusion of an EasyTwin 3D scanner enabling the photographer to offer all the benefits for lightning fast and super accurate face scanning coupled with 3D printing of avatars, figurines and all the face related products associated with the EasyTwin scanner.
