The DELUXE collection is printed in metal. After it’s printed, it will be hand finished and metal coated in copper or bronze, to give it that casted look and feel, without the price tag. This is our most popular option.

The ULTRA collection is the creme de la creme. We combine the modern 3D technology with the age-old technique of bronze casting. Each scan is printed and used as a mold and then hand poured in 100% bronze. After that, our artisan in Amsterdam will add the patina of choice.

Your statue will be hand finished by our artísans in our atelíer in Amsterdam

This has been my second time I did a 3d sculpture with Barbara. She took her time during my appointment and really made me feel comfortable. She also keeps developing and upgrading her collection. I highly recommend her and her 3d business if you would like give an ode to a pregnancy, a surgery, or something else that can be captured and eternalized.
I went to see Barbara to have my own statue made. It was not pregnancy related but because I had an upcoming mastectomy scheduled. I really wanted a keepsake that would remind me of what my body looked like before surgery. When my husband and I arrived at her studio she make me feel really special and I had an amazing experience. Today my statue arrived and WOW, I’m so happy I did this!
Barbara is very professional and made me feel at home. Because of Barbara I now have a gorgeous piece of my own art at home which we always remind me of my pregnancy. I would HIGHLY recommend getting this done by The 3d Bar because I can never go back in time again but my statue will always remind me about my precious time during pregnancy. 🙏🤗.
I couldn’t be happier with my statue! It’s the perfect size and so nicely detailed. During the appointment Barbara really helped getting the best result and outcome. Such a special memory and piece of art. It’s worth every penny!

During your appointment
At the appointment you will meet Sanne or Barbara and you will be able to see, feel, and hold our collection. We will also discuss any questions and concerns you may have.
We will work through a few poses at first and once you are comfortable and decided what pose works best for you, we’ll start the 3d photography session. While standing very still, we walk around you with a state of the art handheld scanner, this will only take a few minutes. This 3d scanner is similar to a normal photo camera and is not harmful to the baby or mom.
For the best results, it’s best to do a scan without wearing any underwear (it will only take 2 minutes) but if you feel more comfortable in underwear, we prefer a seamless thong.
After your appointment
After the appointment, we will edit your digital scan and prepare it before it’s getting 3d printed or casted.
Once it’s printed or casted, our artisans in our atelier in Amsterdam will hand-finish your piece of art.
Your sculpture will be ready in approximately 14-16 weeks (for bronze casts, it might be longer ) and will be sent to your home.

The 3D Bar was born and founded in 2019 by Barbara in Amsterdam and became a huge hit right when it launched.
Meanwhile Sanne was pregnant with her son in San Diego and discovered The 3d Bar online and knew that this concept was absolutely needed in the USA. At 28 weeks pregnant she flew to Amsterdam to capture her pregnancy with The 3d Bar, knowing this was her only chance in life to have this done.
Once Sanne received her own statue and delivered her baby, she contacted Barbara to become the US partner to make this concept available for all the American mommas out here. Because everyone deserves their own statue!
Now we are ready to take our second POP UP in San Diego! Claim your spot or get inspired on Instagram.
