Bronze scale model out of 3D scanning and 3D printing.

In 2016 we have made a project fot one of our clients for the museum in Dubai. The main goal was to crate bronze casted scale model out of 3D scanning documentation.

The client gave us the documentation – point cloud and surface model. On base of which we created 3D models adapted for SLS 3D printing (selective laser sintering).

The model was cut into appropriate elements so that it could fit into the chamber of the 3D printer. After printing the models of ruins and special connectors in FDM technology, the model was handed over to the foundry.

Next thing was to prepare a silicone mold for resin model which will be casted. After quite challenging operation we have received full bronze scale model – 2,4 x 2,4 m ! Most incredible thing are details on the model, straight from 3D scanning.

The project was managed by Terramap company.
