  Yes Elaine, it is almost achieved to create solid models from 2D photographs, Dr. Parr is being working with it for quite some time now, hopefully within this month we will be able to release the site "" where you will be able to upload 2 photographs of a human head (front and side) and we will send back by standard mail a 3D solid head made by WAX, Resin or even metal.
  There are some requirements on the shoots but the point is we are now able to print 3D solid bodies from 2D photographs, quality at this point si realy good and still be improved.

    Well with my 1200 lb+ horse I can tell him not to move and for the most part he stands still. He might bolt when the lights flash.

    I would begin working with a dog or cat.. they don't hurt as bad when they kick or bite. Also they might be a bigger market..everybody has a dog or cat.

    Guess we need to work on going from a picture to 3D still. Wasn't someone doing that?
