Shapeit Offers 3D Print As A Service For Game Characters

ShapeItShapeit, a small but growing company based in Surrey, has kicked off a one-of-a-kind crowdfunding campaign on KickStarter, in which gamers can bring their favorite game characters to life as 3D-printed figurines shipped directly to their door. Avid gamers out there undoubtedly have many favorite titles featuring a diverse and colorful range of cool gaming characters. Perhaps you have spent years customizing your game character to perfection through upgrades, in-app purchases, or by spending countless hours solving puzzles and quests. Or perhaps you just have favorite games that feature some cool looking character art that would look great as figurines on your desk, but none are available for purchase anywhere?

Shapeit is a talented team of passionate developers and 3D-designers currently developing a unique in-game API for game developers, through which gamers can select, customize, order, and manufacture real-life 3D printed figurines. As part of their crowdfunding efforts, supporters of the campaign are granted a unique opportunity to order their very own custom 3D-figurine in different sizes and options. By providing a series of screenshots and specifications, supporters can immortalize their favorite game characters by pledging their support directly to the developer.
