Case Study 2
Client:Machine Shop Special Effects
To produce copies of ancient artefacts collected by Sigmund Freud over his lifetime and used as a chess set. The artefacts could not be removed from the Freud museum in London and each piece was the only one of its kind in existence.
Pieces CNC machined in clear acrylic and polished
Each piece was laser scanned in situ. From this 3D data STL files were created from which the models could be re-produced.
The clear pieces were CNC machined from clear acrylic and polished. The coloured pieces were SLA rapid prototypes (Stereo Lithography) and filled with resin to give weight. The rapid prototypes were then hand painted by our client’s artist.
