Customized 3D Baby Figurine

Imagine meeting your baby before he or she is born.

The pregnancy with your child is a once in a lifetime experience. Recall those feelings over again with your own 3D Baby.

At 3D Babies, we create an adorable baby figurine resembling your baby's facial features and body position.  We use your 3D/4D ultrasound or newborn baby pictures to create a unique artistic representation of your baby using the latest computer graphics and 3D printing technology.  This is a great way to share the excitement of your new baby with family and friends.  Your 3D Baby will be a treasured family remembrance of your pregnancy and new baby.

Summary

We are the parents of two wonderful little girls, ages 3 and 1.  We love being parents and have been cherishing our time with our girls.  Every time another family member or friend has a baby, we are reminded of our first few months with our girls.  More importantly, we are reminded of how much we have forgotten about that time.  In an attempt to hold on to those memories, we created a way to make a 3D figurine of what our baby looked like at that time. 

We want to help other families hold on to those same memories. With your help, we will be able to purchase a 3D printer to lower costs for our customers.  Our ultimate goal is to bring a smile to the faces of parents, grandparents, and other family members as they recall the day that they met their little one.  This product will become a treasured family heirloom.

We create 3D Baby figurines using our proprietary process. First, you choose a Lifesize 3D Baby (8 inches crown to rump), a Halfsize 3D Baby (4 inches crown to rump), and/or a Mini 3D Baby (2 inches crown to rump) and provide images of your baby.   The Lifesize 3D Baby is so called, because a 23-24 week old fetus is about 8 inches from crown to rump.  Next, we reproduce the face as shown in your images and select the body position according to your request (gender visible or not). Finally, we use the color you select (light, medium, or dark) to put the finishing touches on your 3D Baby.

What We Need & What You Get

We are seeking to raise a minimum of $15,000 in funds to purchase a Stratasys U-Print SE Plus (3D Printer).  This purchase is key to being able to reduce the price for our customers.  With Gerard's MBA experience and Katie's PhD in Bioengineering, we have the perfect combination of knowledge to make this business a success.  If we don't reach our goal, then we don't get any funds.  Please help us realize our dream!

In return for your contributions, we have several perks just for you.

  • Donate $1: We will keep you informed of our progress and community contributions.
  • Donate $25: Receive your choice of (1) your money is being pooled with the donations of others in order to contribute a 3D Baby to a military family (for every one that you help donate, we will donate a 3D Baby to another family) or (2) a 3D figurine of our 3D Babies mascot.
  • Donate $50 or $100: Receive a gift certificate for either $75 or $150 towards the purchase of your own 3D Baby.
  • Donate more: Receive 25% off of the purchase of a 3D Baby per the perk description.

Thank you again for your support.
