PARC3D USES THE CALIBRY 3D SCANNER IN THE CREATION OF A FIREMAN SCULPTURE

02 February 2021

Parc3D is a company that specializes in the production of art objects made of metal using 3D technology.

Their latest project was the creation of a sculpture dedicated to firemen, search and rescue workers, and volunteers who had aided in putting out the fires which devasted Russia in the summer of 2010. The designers used a Calibry 3D scanner and a 3D printer, which was developed specially for printing metal, in the creation of the sculpture. You can read more about the creation of this metal printer here: “Using a Calibry 3D scanner in production of a 3D-printed metal art installation”

Monument to the Fireman.

Summer 2010 is best remembered for the large-scale fires which engulfed more than 20 regions of Russia. In some counties, the frames were so severe that the residents barely escaped in time.  

The scriptural composition dedicated to these events consists of two figures in front of a geometric background. The main figure is a fireman who poses heroically facing the oncoming frames and behind him stands a small cowering faun, symbolizing nature.

Similar to a previous sculptural project, this sculpture was created using 3D technology. First, a person in fireman gear was scanned with a Calibry 3D scanner and then the 3D model was printed on a 3D printer. The faun was created in Zbrush and the background in Fusion 360.
