Welcome

​​

doob group AG is a German technology company headquartered in Düsseldorf and further represented by a subsidiary in New York, USA. We offer customized, innovative B2C and B2B products and services in the 3D technology and 3D printing sectors. Our worldwide network of franchise partners is successfully operating doob)stores since 2016.

At those stores, customers can get scanned in our hightech 3D-scanner, the dooblicator, and purchase 3D printed figurines and jewelry.

Since opening the first doob)store, we have scanned more than 120,000 people and let them celebrate their modern 3D selfies.

Our franchise concept offers an opportunity to share the success of new 3D technologies by investing in the future of a quickly expanding business. As a franchise partner you will benefit from our broad experience in a dynamic and forward-looking market.

How it works

Choice of Products

Customers are getting scanned and start buying their 3D figurines at the doob)stores. Our customer consultants offer expert advice to help customers choose the nicest scanning positions and 3D product sizes.

3D Scanning

The scanning process itself takes less than a second and allows a detailed, high-quality capture of the subject’s position and movements – including children and pets.

3D Modelling

Once the scan data is automatically processed to our doob)labs, production of complex 3D models is ready to start.

3D Printing

The 3D models of our customers are printed in one of our printing facilities, in Düsseldorf or New York.

Delivery

Upon completion of a quality check the figurines may be shipped worldwide.
