Pet owners wanting a novel way to remember their beloved animal companions can now commission a lifelike 3D printed sculpture of their furry friend.
London-based Arty Lobster creates the hi-tech sculptures from around ten pictures of a pet, which are scanned, made into a 3D computer model and then turned into a 3D print.
3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The result is a perfect little replica of the pet, which captures even small variations in fur colour and other characteristics.
Lars Andersen, managing director of Arty Lobster, explained: “With more and more households considering their pet to be one of the family, demand for a wide choice of quality products including bespoke pet memorials has never been higher.
“Pet memorials represent a significant part of our customer base. As our pets are becoming members of our family, we also increasingly want a memento of them to cherish forever.”
