To save lives, to help design, to manufacture and yes, to turn dreams into reality!
CloneMe provides real life miniatures or prototypes of people, buildings, objects and the list is inexhaustible. It helps create prosthetics, and body parts using CT scans thus enabling doctors to analyze and experiment on the prototype to understand how the organ will react to the surgeries. Be it the complex and micro size artery walls of the heart or the nerve centers of the brain, the complicated surgeries can be made fool proof by pre testing and avoiding unexpectable situations in the operating theatre. Coming to the architectural field, CloneMe develops 3d buildings directly from design softwares to help the client understand with ease and convey ideas in physical form. The one thing that CloneMe made possible was to take the 3d printing technology closer to the masses and not just the industry players.
