Hi! I welcome you to Hursto Presto Studios! Below is my blog regarding recent news and information about 3D Selfies and spray paint art. Feel free to browse the site and explore my paintings and videos. More to see in the Menu above!
Yesterday, June 18 2016, I attended the Red Springs Street Fair and had a great time sharing 3D printing with a lot of exciting people.
Meanwhile that same day, my other half Jane attended the wedding of Andrew and Elizabeth who had their 3D Selfie Wedding Cake Toppers proudly standing on their cake.
Congratulations to the Newlyweds and may their future be bright!
Last month we were to set up our canopy at the Red Springs Street Fair in NC but it was cancelled due to rain. A new date was just scheduled for the fair:
Sat., June 18, 2016
10am - 4pm
Stop by to check out some sample 3D selfies and let's chat!
Hope to cya there!
With our new translucent In-House 3D Printer filament, we can now print your 5" figurine or 4" bust as an electric tea lamp cover!
When placed over an electric tea lamp, your 3D Selfie lights up inside and glows beautifully as a lamp shade.
5" Tea Lamp Figurine or 4" Bust
Only $50 ea.
We packed up our scanner and headed to Dudley, NC where we had the opportunity to scan a Bride and Groom for their wedding cake topper 3D Selfie.
Congratulations to Andrew and Elizabeth!
They both happened to be Mar Mac Firefighters, so we were able to scan the Groom and new Mother-In-Law in their gear! We'll post the couple's wedding cake toppers after the wedding, but here's our firefighters:
Our studio 3D printer cannot match the quality of our New York industrial printer’s professional laser machines, but with a resolution of 100 microns, our studio printer does great, and...
We Can Print Your 3D Selfie In-House Faster! And Cheaper!

Large (In. 6”) $50
Environmentally Friendly Material
PLA filaments are made with polymerized lactic acid, which is extracted from corn, sugarcane or other sugar-containing crops, and is regarded as the most environmentally friendly 3D printing material. Unwanted PLA printed objects can be simply discarded in the soil where it will naturally decompose.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, PLA filaments also print in low temperatures which greatly reduce warpage. The translucent texture and finishing also add a unique look to your finished work.

We will be setting up our Scan Rig once each month at the Robeson County History Museum to scan historical artifacts! These scans will be processed and posted on the museum website for you to see in 3D. See our Scan Schedule for further dates and times.
You are invited to meet us there to observe the scans in process, and while there ask us about getting yourself Scanned and Printed as a 3D Selfie!
Our studio scanning rig, which we affectionately call our 'Human Rotisserie', is currently under construction.
Our first scan test using a stationary scanner and this rotating Biker Tiger was successful, and we are excited about how our scan rig will increase the quality of 3D scans.
Thanks to my lovely wife Jane, our scanner issue is resolved and we are back to offering our full complement of materials and sizes as described in our Studio Catalog!
To celebrate our April 2016 launch, we are offering our 4" Full Color Sandstone 3D Selfie for only $50!
Limited time only!
Does not include Scan Fee.
Expires June 2016.
With all endeavors, there are times when something gets in the way. One can moan and whine about it, or one can learn from it and make adjustments. We had 4 sizes of 3D Selfies, but we temporarily had to drop the 2 largest.
We still have the popular 3" and 4" 3D Selfies, and to celebrate our studio launch we are dropping our 4" price from the already reduced $60 to $50 through April 2016!
Speed bump or not, we are moving forward with launching Hursto Presto Studios!
April 1, 2016
We have our studio launch date set on April 1, 2016. If you are interested in getting scanned, by all means contact us and be placed on our contact waiting list.
Cya in April!
Our 2016 promotional materials are finalized with a lock in pricing!
Originally, Full Color Sandstone was to be increased 25% upon studio launch, but this year in 2016 only we are offering Sandstone 3D Printed Selfies at a 25% discount keeping the pricing steady at 2015 levels!
Full Color Sandstone 3D Selfies

In 2017 the Full Color Sandstone 3D Selfies will increase about 25%, such as the popular miniature Full Color Sandstone 3D Selfie from $30 to $40 ea. Our Strong & Flexible Plastic stays the same, and this spring we introduce our new In-House printing featuring PLA organic plastic that's even lower priced (only $20 for a miniature 3D Selfie) with a faster print time of under a week.

A year ago as the year 2015 approached, much like 2016 does now, a crazy idea was born. My passion for Art all my life and my over 20 year experience (Job) as a Copier Technician came
together and merged into this crazy 3D Printing thing.
I decided to start a 3D Printing business. So throughout the year of 2015 I researched, studied, and began to create the details of this idea.
We wanted to be a local, home based business that offered a unique product at an affordable price, and we concentrated on 2015 as the year to develop the pricing and marketing strategies. We also needed samples to show as well, so 2015 was all about exploration and development.
More work to do as 2016 approaches, but so far we are on track. We will be purchasing our own studio 3D printer for In-House work that will reduce costs even more for our customers and
quicken delivery times, and a 'Human Rotisserie' is being designed to make scanning better.
2016 shows itself as a life-changing year for Jane and I. The official launch of Hursto Presto Studios is near, and I want to thank everyone who helped us jump-start our dream this past
May everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Let's bring on 2016! Woot!
To create a scan, we must walk around you with a hand-held camera-like device to capture your 3D image. That's not ideal for tight spaces though and offers lighting challenges. While researching the problem, I came across the ideal solution: The Human Rotisserie.
Not for cooking mind you, but a motorized Lazy Susan to slowly spin you for 3D Scanning. There are several do-it-yourself videos on Youtube that have inspired me such as this one below:
Expect our Human Rotisserie to be completed by Spring 2016.
But there are times when the scan captures unwanted color such as shadows and reflected light. The skin color could be too dark or just washed out, your white shirt could have a strange purple cast to it, or you may have blinked during the scan and your eyes blurred away.
We can have an Artist digitally hand paint your model for only $20!
Basic Scan Fee: $40
Optional Coloring Fee: $20
The $20 optional coloring fee will send your digital data file to an artist to get your model completely recolored and negate odd lighting and shadow effects that your scan may
carry, or you can opt for just the basic $40 scan fee in which basic editing and touch up is done.
Color may vary. Note that this applies only to full color sandstone.
