does a guy who by chance gets a printed mini-me and uses the word selfie incorrectly in a clickbait article, poses a question to get comments, use that word incorrectly? sure does.
he didn't do the scan. he didn't do the printing. so how is it a scan? now if he had actually made an article about buying/rigging up a full color scanner and getting a full color 3d printer, mcor or whatever, then yeah it would have been quite a cool article.
now it just looks like he's posing as stupid for the sake of creating discussion to boost himself. that's one use for a 3d printed mini me.
another user would be.. you know.. he could just give it to his mom or kids. that's the USUAL kind of way you would use of PORTRAITS. it's a portrait so how stupid you need to be to not treat it as one????
