3D Scanning Frequently Asked Questions

There’s a lot going on here! Take a look at some Frequently Asked Questions below to get answers to common questions.

  • What is the 3D Scanning Room/What do you do here?

    The 3D Scanning room at Gulliver's is where our guests can have a 3D Printed keepsake figurine of themselves made as well as a teeny tiny 1:87th scale likeness of themselves we call (The Model Citizen) placed inside our model at a location that the guest gets to choose.

  • How much is it?

    Pricing varies depending on the size/option you choose. Pricing starts at $44 plus applicable taxes. Model Citizenship placement is (this option is not available for the guest to have sent to them. It automatically is sent to Gulliver's for placement) The Small Size figurine (1:15th scale and made with the subject’s height factored in). The Medium Size figurine (1:10th scale and made with the subject’s height factored in) is. The Large Size figurine (1:08th scale and made with the subject’s height factored in). All purchases of a Small, Medium or Large figurine includes the placement of a Model Citizen at no extra cost.

  • Do I get it today?

    Unfortunately, no. The printing is done off site and takes roughly 3-4 weeks to receive. It will be shipped to you in the mail!

  • Can I just pick it up at Gulliver's?

    Unfortunately, no. We will need a valid shipping address for you.

  • I don't live in the US. Do you ship internationally?

    We do! However, while domestic shipping is free, international shipping is an additional $50.00 at the time of purchase and that may not cover whatever taxes/fees that could be added once it reaches the customs of the destination country.

  • Since I don't live locally, how will I be able to see my Model Citizen placement in the model at Gulliver's?

    All guests receive an emailed photo of their Model Citizen in our world once it is placed!

  • If I come back in person to see my Model Citizen, do I have to pay to re-enter?

    While you will not receive a free entry, all guests who hold Model Citizen status get 25% off all return visits! Just show the box office your placement photo or even your receipt from purchase and they will add it!

  • What if I receive the figurine and it arrives broken or misprinted?

    Please let us know. Any damage sustained in transit or printing errors not caught before being sent out are covered and we can have a reprint put in for you!

  • Do the figurines break easily/what are they made of?

    The material is called "Gypsum" it is similar too ceramic or sheet rock. It is not unbreakable. If it does break, it tends to not shatter so if you wanted to attempt to glue it, it does work well.

  • What if it breaks beyond repair after I receive it? Can I order a replacement?

    Yes! Your photos are available in the account you set up with us indefinitely so you can order a reprint (or even additional figurines in different sizes) at any point!

  • Can you do more than one person in a photo?

    Yes! You can do up to two people in a photo (but no more than two) However, the figurines will be fused together and are still priced as two people.

  • What should I wear for the photo?

    Anything you want/feel most comfortable in! We recommend brighter colors or things that have interesting patterns or textures as they print well.

  • Are you able Photoshop the photos so it appears like we are wearing something different/make us look thinner?

    Unfortunately, no. The photograph that is taken in the booth is how your figure will be printed. Very little Photoshop is used, if any.

  • How accurate is it?

    While the printer is incredibly good at catching details and the prints are very accurate, there's always a chance that things won't be a 100% exact match to what you're expecting. The printer is taking the photo data we send it, and then translates it to 3D form to the best of its ability. So, there may be slight variations in colors or brightness/darkness. It may read a shadow on the face a certain way that makes it look slightly different, etc. We have many examples in our display case on site so you can get a good idea of what you'll receive!

  • Are the figurines painted?

    Nope! They are printed with a state of the art Color 3D Printer.

  • Do a lot of people do this?

    Oh yes! We have around 7,000 Model Citizens in our world and add more almost every day!


    If you do order a model and receive it, make sure to keep them away from water as they are not made to get wet. Here’s a little trick, using heat (like a hairdryer) on the figurine keep it looking fresh and new.
