What is B3D?
B3D’s are perfectly formed, scaled down, lifelike 3D printed figurines created using Empower3D’s state of the art 3D printing system.
We wave our magic wand and out comes beautifully sculpted full colour 3D printed figurines made of sandstone.

UniformsMany of us take great pride in our jobs and the uniforms we wear. If you’re proud of what you do and what your uniform means to you, then let us immortalise that pride in a B3D.
What to expect
Due to the current limitations of 3D printing technology, any item smaller than roughly one inch in diameter cannot be guaranteed to print. This includes fine or small pieces of jewellery, tassels, strings, etc.
For that reason as well, the details on your B3D will not be as crisp as your own details are in reality. The fine aspects of any given pattern, especially of something like a tattoo, may not be captured and reproduced accurately. If you get very close to a model, it is quite normal to be able to see its tiny printed layers (at forty thousandths of an inch each) and to feel the rough texture of the powder it is made of.
Finally, the precise hues of your clothing and skin may not look exactly as they do in reality… but they’ll come close! Have a look at some of our 3D printed figurines below. Click on the image to zoom in.
