Why 3D at the Barthélémy Foundry ?
Traditional crafts meet new technologies
An additional tool at the disposal of a creator, 3D opens new dimensions to the sculptor, allowing him or her to:
scan a piece
visualize it in its actual size, via the use of a VR headset
directly edit the digital file (on screen or with VR headset)
It is ideal for monumental pieces, because in the case of a single piece, wax printing eliminates the need for making a rubber mold.
As a true partner of the artist, the Foundry is glad to walk him or her through the stages of discovering and mastering 3D techniques.
