How they are made
Timeto3d miniature custom heads are created using sophisticated facial recognition software that analyses the face structure. The software generates a 3D mesh model which mimics your face shape and geometry. The front facing picture is then wrapped around the model to give a photo-realistic render of your face.
Hair is then added to the model based on your selection, choose from our range of styles and colours.
The model is then 3D printed in a sandstone material to give a perfect little replica of your head, the head has a 5mm hole in the neck that allows it to fit onto any LEGO or block based minifigure. Today Batman, tomorrow Han Solo, next week who knows, the only restriction is the limit of your own imagination.
Submit Your Review
In order to make a selfie miniature we require multiple photographs. Please see the instructions below in order to receive a high quality product.
- Please upload 3 clear and recent photographs in high resolution. One front profile, one left profile and one right profile. We require minimum 3 but you may upload more.
- Please ensure that the photographs are without eyeglasses/sunglasses and hair is pulled back. Eyeglasses/sunglasses can be added later if you mention it separately in the special instructions.
- Please ensure that the head is facing front and preferably the photographs be taken against a light background.
- Please avoid laughing in the photographs as this will change the facial features. A light smile on the face is nice.
- If you would like a specific pose or costume please let us know in the special instructions box. Please note that we may charge extra for this service.
- Dont have multiple photos? Cant get additional photographs? No problem, you may also email your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What material is the miniature made of?
A: The miniatures are made in a biodegradable thermoplastic called PLA.
Q: Are these replicas of the person?
A: No, selfie miniatures are not replicas instead they offer a little of a cartoonish aspect to the doll. We offer an accuracy of approximately 70%-80% to the actual photo.
Q: What if I dont have multiple photographs of the person I want to get a miniature made of?
A: In that case we will have to see the photograph and decide whether it has enough data to proceed.
Q: Can I get the 3D CAD model to print on my own?
A: Yes, at an additional cost we can provide you with a 3D printable version of the miniature.
Q: Can I have my face placed on another body?
A: Sure, for instance you can get your face on Superman's body or even come up with your own designed character.
Q: How much time does it take to make a miniature selfie?
A: Miniatures generally take 15-20 business days. Higher number of order can take more time.
Q: What is the minimum or maximum size I can get?
A: Due to the downscaling, little details can be very delicate and may be hard to print. It includes sensitive parts like fingers pointed in the air, an arm away from the body or a prop such as a musical instrument. These may break when printed on the smallest figurine so we would advise going up a size in some circumstances. There is no restriction to the size you can make the miniature in, it could be from a few inches to even a life-size model. You can get a custom size of your choice made as well.
Q: How fragile are the miniatures?
A: Due to the small scale and delicate details the miniature should be treated with care. Thin parts like the fingers or accessories might break if they fall. Treat the miniature as you would a sculpture or painting.

A: Yes we do.
