3D Photo Booth
At the MakerBot Retail Store’s 3D Photo Booth, we’ll fill out your* image with a 360-degree scan that captures your entire head and shoulders. It takes a little over a minute, and when you’re done you’ll get a scan file ready for 3D printing. You can then order a 3D print from a MakerBot Retail Operator and/or download your scan file from Thingiverse.
Go ahead and share it with your friends and family! Finally, they’ll have a 3D printed bust of you to remind them what you’re like—from every angle.
*3D Photo Booth can scan only one person at a time. You must be at least 10 years old and between 48”–84” tall to be scanned.
Gum Ball Machine
For just $5, you can bring home a little piece of MakerBot. Our Gumball Machines have all kinds of designs that fit into classic prize capsules, dispensed through a coin-operated vending machine.

Be sure to check out our limited seasonal collections. Whatever you pick, you’ll have a great piece to show off the capabilities of our machines, and a perfect conversation piece to explain 3D printing to your friends.
