Visitors, and those showing dogs, at Crufts, the world’s biggest dog show, this week (9-12 March), will be able to immortalise their beloved dog in 3D thanks to innovative technology from Arty Lobster.
3D printing experts Arty Lobster have taken a stand (Hall 2, Stand 1) at Crufts where breeders will be able to have their dogs presented in breed-specific showing, or ‘stacking’, positions. They will also be able to have the dog’s Cruft’s success engraved on the sculpture’s bronze base. Dog lovers can also have the name of their pet engraved.
Show goers will be able to take advantage of a 15% discount on the cost of having their dog immortalised in 3D.
Lars B. Andersen, Founder and CEO of Arty Lobster, said: “It’s exciting to be exhibiting at Crufts, as it’s such a vital part of the pet industry’s calendar, and the biggest and most important dog show in the world. The 3D sculptures are perfect mementos of Crufts, as winners will be able to celebrate their dogs’ success with a specially engraved sculpture, and have their dog presented in their breed’s stacking position.
“We’re bringing a wide selection of 3D sculptures of dog breeds that customers have ordered from snapshots of their own dogs. All people need to do to have their own 3D dog created for them is to upload several photos of their dog to our website at www.artylobster.com. The process is really simple.”
Visitors will be able to check out a recently created 3D sculpture of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s dog ‘Beast’, a Hungarian Sheepdog.
Arty Lobster is known for taking 3D tech to the limit by creating items that are truly bespoke and unique. Highly skilled artists create the 3D pet sculptures from customers’ photos of their pet, which are then 3D printed before being delivered to the customer.
Lars added: “We’re finding that these sculptures are both perfect gifts for dog lovers and also unique and extremely fitting pet memorials for bereaved pet owners. It’s a growing market and these are hugely exciting times for us as we continue to innovate and invest in truly cutting edge equipment and hire additional world-class designers in 3D modelling.”
Arty Lobster produces 3D prints in three options, including sandstone, porcelain and bronze with prices starting at £195. To find out more, visit www.artylobster.com.
