Twindom Launches HD 3D Printed Portraits and TwinProtect

BERKELEY, Calif., Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Twindom is launching HD Retouching and TwinProtect to give 3D prints more pop and UV/water resistance respectively. Before launching, Twindom did a beta program to test these features among a select group customer, who use its full-body 3D scanners to print 3D portraits.

Will Drevno, one of Twindom's co-founders said, "During the beta period both services have been incredibly popular with Twindom's customers. Close to half of all 3D portraits are now getting some form of HD Retouching or TwinProtect applied to them."

TwinProtect is a specially formulated coating that makes 3D portraits UV/water resistant. One downside of full-color 3D prints from the Projet 660, the only acceptable printer for 3D portraits, is that if prints are exposed to humidity or direct sunlight for prolonged periods, the color can fade. For example, if you leave your 3D portrait on a windowsill. TwinProtect helps with this by sealing in color and making the prints more resistant to the elements.

HD Retouching is designed for 3D portrait businesses who want to offer a premium 3D portrait without having to spend +$70k on a DSLR photogrammetry full body 3d scanner and pay substantial fees to 3D artists to fix scan data. HD Retouching works by running the scan data through an advanced set of algorithms that are trained on the large set of past scans that Twindom has helped to process. Whatever the algorithms don't catch, a senior 3D artist from Twindom fixes. The two-part process goes beyond Twindom's Basic Retouching by texturizing hair, enhancing face details, and emphasizing clothing creases. Once complete, the 3D portrait business gets a notification to make comments if additional revisions are needed. Next, it's passed off to Twindom's global network of 3D print partners and shipped to the 3D portrait business or end customer.

"To our customers, details are everything and to us, reputation is everything. With HD retouching, the extra effort and attention to detail translate into a higher quality PocketMe product and preserves our good name," said Dylan Saloner, CEO of 3D portrait business, PocketMe and a Twindom customer.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
