Here are a few FAQs about scanning people:

  • Where do you scan?
    • The easiest way is to schedule an appointment to get 3D scanned in our office in Miami, FL
    • Call 786.701.0700 to book an appointment or email
  • Can you scan at another location?  My house? Hotel? Office? Studio? 
    • Sure, we can do that!  We will include the necessary fees for travel in your estimate.
  • How long does it take?
    • A face scan usually takes 15 - 30 minutes
    • A full body scan usually takes 45 minutes - 1 hour
  • How much does it cost?
    • Face scans start at $250
    • Full body scans start at $500
  • What files format will I receive?
    • If we captured color data, we will send you an OBJ
    • If we captured higher resolution 3D data without color, we will send you an STL
  • Can you edit my scan data?  Adjust my hair, nose, etc?
    • While this can be done by a 3D artist, the 3DChimera team is not the best choice for this service.
    • If you need assistance like this after your scan is complete, we will be happy to make recommendations for partners who can help.
  • Is it safe?
    • Absolutely!
    • Our lower resolution scanners use infrared light that is invisible to the eye.  
    • Our higher resolution scanners use a white light that flashes slightly. If you are affected by any strobe or light flashing, we will explore alternative options with you.
    • We have 3D scanned infants, our own kids, and each other with the same equipment we would use for your scan.
