Some call this the best gift idea ever! Perfect for a wedding, anniversary, engagement, graduation, birthday, pregnancy, or family portrait. Capture a memorable moment with you and a family member, best friend, beloved pet, or even a realistic figurine of yourself that can be passed on to your loved ones.
Guidelines for all captures
- An "infant" is defined as a person less than one year of age.
- A "small pet" is defined as a pet that is smaller than an infant.
- A "large pet" is defined as a pet that is larger than an infant.
- A "child" over the age of one year is considered to be an "adult".
- "Infants" and "small pets" can be interchangeable.
- "Infants" and "small pets" may not be captured alone, and must be captured with a person in the frame.
- Certain poses are subject to a shorter print height:
- Pet-only scans with sitting or standing pets (no human) are printed at 50% height (e.g. a 7" print order will result in a 3.5" print).
- Pet-only scans with laying down pets (no human) are printed at 25% height (e.g. a 5" print order will result in a 1.25" print).
- Scans of people not standing up fully (sitting, kneeling, bending over) are printed at 50% height (e.g. a 7" print order will result in a 3.5" print).
- Scans of people laying down are not permitted.

Rules for couple captures (or any >1 person captures):
- Ensure that there is no projection occlusionon the subjects (e.g. the projection is visible on all parts of the subjects – this is especially important for darker colored areas of the subjects)
- Make sure faces are facing the “face pole”or are facing directly out of the bounding box (at the poles) – never let subjects face each other in a frame
- Do not allow subjects to touch headsin any way, as this results in terrible webbing
Rules for Pet Captures
- Always suggest capturing pets with their owners- pet captures on their own rarely turn out well, as they are too small for the system to capture reliably
- Run multiple capturesto give owners a choice – the first capture is almost never the best
- Remember pets captured alone are printed at a shorter height: pets sitting or standing alone are printed at half-height, and pets laying down alone are printed at 1/4 height (e.g. a sitting pet ordered at 7″ will be printed at 3.5″ tall)
- If larger than an infant, pets are counted as an additional personfor print orders
- Require that couples have hands/arms touching, but that their bodies are either touching head-to-toe or are at least 6″ apart(to prevent webbing and ensure both subjects are captured successfully)
- Avoid kissing posesat all costs – faces will web together and look unnatural
