- Have you ever wanted an extremely life-like memento of your beloved pet?
- Groundbreaking 3D printing tech and artistry could be the answer
- A 3D artist and modeler creates the very realistic sculptures from several photos of the pet
- The pet sculpture is great as a gift for pet lovers or as a memento mori of a deceased pet
Arty Lobster is a brilliant company that helps people remember their pets by creating extremely life-like 3D printed sculptures.
The company creates the hi-tech sculptures from around ten pictures of a dog or another pet which the owner uploads to the company's website. 3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The designer makes a 3D CAD/CAM computer model of the pet, which is then turned into a 3D print.
The result is a perfect little replica of the pet, which captures even small variations in fur colour and other characteristics.
The company has many very happy customers. Marie Carter said: "The sculpture seemed to capture the cheeky look in her eyes, and the texture and contours of her fur and build. Even her chubbiness was captured perfectly!"
Lars Andersen, Managing Director of Arty Lobster, said: "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."
