Here's your chance to turn lovable Doge into a fashion accessory for all the world to see, or gift it to your sweetheart because nothing says "I love you" more than that shibe face. If you're looking for Valentine's Day ideas, look no further.

Charmr is a customizer on the 123D website that allows you to create a 3D printable charm using whatever photo you want (it doesn't have to be doge, though it should be). It's pretty straightforward, but I'm going to go through the process of how to go from a photo to a sweet, love-themed 3D print of that same photo.

Materials you will need:

  • http://apps.123dapp.com/charmr/
  • a 3D printer (or a credit card so someone else can print for you)
  • a picture

Step 1: Upload your picture to Charmr

When you go to the Charmr site, you will be prompted to select a photo from your computer.

Select the "Browse" button and pick a photo of your choice. Up close photos with a minimal amount of detail are best.

Once the photo is selected, you can use your mouse to move the photo around until it's in the position you want.

After the charm looks like what you want, select "Done" and the image will flip around to show you what it will look like once printed.

Press the "3D Print" button where you will be given a selection of choices for a company to print your charm form you, or the option to "Download .stl." Select the "Download .stl" option.
