Billed as the first 3D printing and scanning retail store in the Mid-Atlantic region, Bmore3D opens in Canton on Nov. 29, and will remain open through the end of 2013.

It’s a project of Custom 3D Stuff — the 3D design store founded by Google Glass Explorer and former MakerBot employee Todd BlattTinkerine Studio, a Vancouver-based company that makes its own line of 3D printers, and Direct Dimensions, the Baltimore County-based 3D modeling services company.

Bmore3D, located at 2150 Boston St., is a gallery of 3D gifts made by Baltimore-based 3D artists. According to a press release, items for sale “include earrings, rings, necklaces, vases, and an assortment of unique Baltimore-themed pieces.” And all the pieces have been designed with 3D modeling software and created using 3D printers.

Also in store is ShapeShot, “world’s first fully automated 3D photo booth” created by Direct Dimensions. Customers, after having their image taken in 3D, can order “their 3D-printed busts, jewelry, bobbleheads and even ceramic coffee mugs customized with a scale model of their face.”
