Gallery: FabCafe Lets You 3D-Print a Gummy Version of Yourself


Gummies aren’t just for bears and worms anymore. Tokyo’s FabCafe in Shibuya recently offered nine lucky customers the chance to create a 3D-printed gummy version of themselves! Using the café’s 3D body scanner, customers made colorful gummies of their bodies for White Day – a Japanese follow-up to Valentine’s Day.

FabCafe, a coffee shop and 3D printing hub, recently offered female customers the chance to have their faces scanned and printed into a mold to be cast in chocolate for Valentines’ Day. For White Day, the personalized 3D-printed  gift trend continued, but this time the body scanner was used to create a head to toe scan of each customer.

For just $60, customers took part in a two-part workshop with a detailed 3D scan of their entire bodies. FabCafe then 3D printed the files into detailed plastic molds of each customer. Then, the men got to pour jelly candy into their own molds, making a colorful collection of tasty miniature versions of themselves.

The 3D printing café offers guests a unique service of 3D scanning and printing, all while enjoying a casual cup of coffee while they wait.  Aside from personalized gummy men and chocolate faces, the 3D printer has also offered up workshops in 3D printed ornaments, jewelry, clothing and toys.
