3d modeling and 3d printing for bronze casting
I`ve rebuild from papers Coat of Arms in 3d (polygonal subd mesh). Then I`ve printed it on 3d printer. I`ve prepared shield as CAD project and send it to CNC router. I`ve fixed 3d printed parts to CNC ones to make template. That template has been used for pressing shape in sand and fill it with melted bronze metal in local traditional Foundry. In that way I`ve created reproduction of Coat of Arms as fusion of oldest traditional sand casting foundry process and newest 3d modeling, 3d printing and 3d milling capabilities. That`s all to deliver product with old soul made with current 3d technology. I`ve made 3d modeling process only watching illustration of original Coat of Arms and modeling it in 3d app. I hollowed everything to reduce cost of 3d printing and minimalise warping/shrinkage effect. I`m proud of that project and I`ve made photos/illustrations on every production stage (from 3d model to final product).

YOU CAN SEE EVERY PART OF THAT PROJECT IN STAGES:
final product in bronze metal <- 3d print <- 3d model

Coat of arms of the Bagrationi dynasty - my three dimensional reproduction of that Coat of Arms manufactured as a real product from my 3d printed template. I`ve made that model in Modo and Zbrush. This Coat of Arms was 3d printed and casted in bronze metal (sand casting). That project was a fusion of modern 3d modeling, 3d printing, cnc milling and old fashion foundry process (sand casting form prepared template). I`ve made that model from scratch in 3d. I had vector image as reference. I`ve prepared template with using 3d printing nad CNC milling. I`ve created template and I`ve sent it to foundry to get ready product (pressing template into high quality sand to make form for metal bronze filling).
