How to create stunning 3D images inside high quality optical crystal?

Posted on Feb 05, 2016

To create a 3D image in a crystal, we simply need a good quality photo from you. It can be sent in various formats such as jpg, bmp, and png. Make sure that your photo is well illuminated, in a high resolution and is not blurred. Your photo may show one, two, three or more people. The process begins when you upload a standard photo through our website. Our production team then starts to process your photo using our proprietary customized image optimization software. The photo is edited, refined, enhanced with our text merge feature if selected, and calibrated for the correct crystal size. We enhance the image and apply a specialized edge-treatment procedure as well as customized masking to ensure the image is prepared properly. Then our designers use additional specialized software to convert your photo into a ready-to-laser, high-resolution 3D sculpture file. The completed file is then sent to our production equipment where the magic really starts to happen.

We use only the highest quality optical crystal glass and state of the art laser equipment to produce the final product. The photo crystal is made using a special laser that focuses its concentrated beams of light to a precise point below the surface of the crystal. Each bright point in the image is plotted in the final crystal piece. The laser then focuses a high-powered beam on each three-dimensional coordinate. Once the beam reaches the focal point, the powerful laser pulse makes a tiny void or inclusion inside the crystal. Then the laser moves to the next coordinate and makes another etched point. Finally, enough points are created to reproduce the design deep within the crystal. As laser beams are non-invasive, no marks or blemishes are left on the surface of the crystal. Our production team uses software to control the laser and create high frequency pulses of light within the crystal. The precise control through the software allows us to create a 3D image inside the crystal without leaving a mark on any surface. We take the 3D sculpture file and recreate it inside any crystal shape. The result is an amazing reproduction inside a crystal that is accurate in every detail.

The exciting technologies that are making headways in digital imaging

Posted on May 14, 2015

What are the exciting new technologies that are now making headways in digital imaging? Converting 2D photo to 3D is now the buzzword in the digital imaging market. A 2D image lacks spatial information, and onverting the 2D photo to 3D requires not only the latest conversion technology but also the skill of experienced computer graphic designers.

The 2D photo to 3D uses a breakthrough technology in machine learning. The software estimates depths from a single image by using monocular vision algorithm, captures a variety of monocular cues and learns the relationship between different parts of the image using an innovative machine learning technique.

All this high sounding technical jargon may sound Greek and Latin to most people. So to make it simple, converting 2D photo to 3D is finding exciting new uses. From just one or two photos of you or your loved ones, you can have the image reconstructed in a 3D photo in glass. Is this not a thrilling development? This 3D modeling technique was earlier reserved to professional 3D designers and film studios only. Now it is available to anyone. You have specialists who can transform portraiture from 2D photo to 3D photo in glass by ordering online.

You must however follow the photo guidelines that provide tips on how to take and submit good photos. Usually all common image file types are acceptable. To get optimum results designers recommend uploading a large file, even though smaller files are accepted. The specialists isolate the background from the original image and create the best 3D model from the foreground and central figures. The images of your choice is not confined to just portraiture. You can choose anything you are fond of like pets, cars, building and landscapes.

The final 3D photo crystal product is a precisely laser engraved 3D Photo in crystal/glass made by using innovative subsurface marking green-laser machine. 3D crystal photo is a wonderful gift to your loved ones, who will cherish it as something exceptional. You can even get a caption of your choice engraved in the 3D laser crystal. Customers even have an option to receive a digital version of a picture in the form of windows screen saver. Most people are familiar with digitally created gifts of 2D images. You now have an opportunity to be one-up and gift someone with a transformed 2D photo to 3D.

The artistic laser engraving reproduction of the dog picture

Posted on Nov 18, 2014

I have received and inspected my order of the obelisk with the artistic laser engraving reproduction of the dog picture. It is totally awesome!!! In my wildest dreams, I wasn’t expecting such a truly artistic and professionally done piece. I’m thankful I chose to order the small base as well because it took it way over the top. I couldn’t be more pleased with my entire purchase. I purchased my order as a Christmas gift for a member of my family and have no reservation of whether they will love their present. I do think that you should use as an example on your website one of a pet. The American people spend billions a year on their pets and this alone will grow your business. This is a treasure that is long lasting and enjoyed everyday by the owner in a very unique presentation versus a simple framed picture. --- Leonard

Technology behind a 3D Photo Crystal

Posted on Apr 24, 2014

3D Photo crystals are made using special laser beam, and proprietary micro-laser software guides the beam along the XYZ axis.  The laser beam penetrates the surface of the crystal, focuses to a precise point below the surface of the crystal, and burns a micro-fracture that is invisible to the naked eyes. After repeating the process and injecting hundreds of thousands of burns, your selected image is formed, impressively suspended in the centre of an optic crystal block.  As laser beams are non-invasive, no marks or blemishes are left on the surface of the crystal, and the surfaces appear completely untouched. When viewed from any angle the intricate design is viewed much like a three dimensional sculpture.
