Plug-In & Print | Turn Photos into 3D Models | Smart App Control | No Assembly Needed
Tired of expensive and complicated 3D printers? Wondering how to start as a beginner or how to get kids into 3D printing? Say hello to KOKONI, and all those troubles will disappear! KOKONI makes 3D printing possible for everyone!
You don’t need to be a professional artist or designer to get creative with 3D printing. 3D printers are amazing, they can print literally ANYTHING. However, most printers on the market are designed for professionals or people with 3D modeling & DIY skills. The steep learning curve of these printers makes them difficult for beginners or kids. With the KOKONI 3D printer, anyone can easily create fantastic 3D characters or objects.
That’s why we invented KOKONI, the world’s-first AI-integrated 3D printer that’s easy enough for everyone.
What you see is what you get. A smart AI algorithm is used to model photographs, without the need for a separate scanner. Just take a picture and upload it via App then KOKONI will automatically generate a model prototype and print it. We’re going to bring you a brand new and amazing printing experience.
Create a unique 3D model or avatar by simply snapping or uploading photos to the App, and let your creativity shine! Now, you can make anything from personalized avatars of your favorite anime or movie characters to complex models for art or school.
We live in a 3D world and our eyes have the incredible ability to perceive depth information. When we see an object with both eyes, we already have a 3D model of the object in our minds.
Enabling machines to create 3D models works on a similar principle, our photo modeling method is based on the recent development of deep learning technology. The algorithm first learns from numerous sample data to obtain an understanding of the 3D object’s appearance in the real world. This process has been perfected over the past two years, as we collected tens of thousands of 3D model samples and their corresponding pictures to optimize our machine learning algorithm so that it can generate high-fidelity realistic 3D models.
*How can we turn a picture into a 3D avatar model?
In “Avatar Modeling”, we only need to input 1 picture, and the algorithm uses deep neural networks to extract the 3D features. Then the neural network performs nonlinear processing of the features according to the learned method (at this point the neural network already has the ability to generate a realistic model), and finally, a realistic frontal 3D face is produced. As for the back of the avatar that the picture didn’t capture, the algorithm has already seen numerous 3D models of the “avatar” (as priori knowledge), so it can consistently complete the remaining features based on the recognized front features. The final result of the algorithm is a complete model that can be printed in 3D.
*How can we convert multiple pictures into a 3D model?
In “Object Modeling”, we need more images for the algorithm to extract more information and these images need to be taken in a certain order. For each image, the algorithm will estimate the 3D depth information using the adjacent angle images taken, similar to how the human eye perceive depth using both eyes. We then use the estimated 3D depth as a further clue to generate a complete 3D model based on the global semantic information. Finally, secondary optimization is performed to correct features that do not match the picture information, and the final output of the algorithm is a complete manifold that can be printed in 3D. We combine the benefits of deep learning with the traditional optimization process – unlike traditional optimization-based photogrammetry, our deep learning-based approach captures global semantic information and combines prior knowledge of lighting and texture to make reasonable initial estimates, and also exploits the benefits of the optimization method to maximize the use of multi-view images taken by the user to target the synthesis of high-fidelity and 3D-printable models.
