i-City will soon open a studio that houses 3D scanning technology from China, allowing clients to create and buy a realistic Mini-Me figurine of themselves.

1. A client holds a pose for three minutes on a rotating platform as cameras capture 360° angles of him.

2. The captured images are stored in a database and sent to its partner company in Guangzhou, China for graphic designers to render a 3D model of the client.

3. The model is printed layer by layer and then assembled to form a statue. During visualisation, additional props such as this billiard stick can be added to the model’s pose.

4. If a person is not satisfied with the colour of his attire, graphic designers can do modifications to it before they render a 3D model. The completed statue will be shipped to Malaysia, and passed to the client.
