3D Printing For Sculptural And Statues
With the development of technology, more and more jobs are replaced by machines. Industrial machines make up for the lack of human physical labor, and computers become more convenient tools to help people complete various mental tasks. Now, digital modeling and sculpture technology are also widely used in the design industry. More and more functions are provided by software for sculptors to create combined creations. CNC machine tools are used to precisely engrave 3D printers to complete the production, which no longer requires more than ten years of work. Experienced stone or woodcarving masters greatly reduce the uncertainty of labor costs and human errors, and sculpture production is on the road to industrialization.
The simulation of materials by computer helps the artist to have a clear idea of the materialization in the future. And digital sculpture not only assists sculptors to complete their creation, but also saves a lot of cost in construction. Stone carving and wood carving no longer require experienced masters to carve thousands of thousands of carvings, but only need to be handed over to CNC machine tools or robotic arms to complete. And the complex shapes of large-scale urban sculptures are no longer human visual inspection, but precise drawing brought by computers. Through calculus-style ferrules, the artist’s small drafts can be accurately enlarged as they are. These are all brought by 3D technology. Some conveniences in the process of artistic creation.
If 3D printing technology is introduced into the sculpture creation process, the creation time of the sculpture can be greatly reduced and a lot of manpower and material resources can be saved.
During the conceptualisation stage of the sculpture, the quick reproduction function of 3D printing technology can be used to obtain detailed information on the shape of the object, eliminating some sketching activities.
During the creation of small drafts, the 3D printing technology can be used to produce different small drafts in a short period of time, so that they can be selected and refined.
The advantage of 3D printing over traditional sculpture is that it allows for extremely neat, complex and precise forms that can be scaled up and down at will, saving a great deal of time in sculpture creation.3D printing technology can also assist in the training of copying in sculpture.
Copying is essential to the study of sculpture, and the study of classical sculpture helps to improve the grasp of form and volume, to improve the eye’s perception and to train the hand’s control.
We often record the highlights or meaningful moments in life by taking pictures, but whether it is a developed photo or a photo stored in a mobile phone or a camera, the picture presented is always flat. Have you ever thought about turning these moments into tangible entities through 3D scanning and 3D printing technology, so that you can truly feel these moments anytime, anywhere?
With the help of today’s 3D scanning and 3D printing technology, family members, lovers, friends or yourself can be printed into lifelike 3D sculptures, which can be placed in the office, car, bedroom or anywhere for aftertaste at any time.
Making a custom 3D printed statue generally requires the following steps: 3D scanning, 3D modeling (including scanning data optimization), 3D printing and coloring, and painting.

Why Choose China 3D Printing Sculptural And Statues Services
China is a big country in the sculpture industry with a complete industrial chain layout. The scale of the industry ranks first in the world and shows a trend of continuous growth year by year. According to statistics, the domestic sculpture market will reach 500 billion yuan in 2020, a year-on-year increase of 19.6%. In recent years, with the development of science and technology, art and technology have begun to merge, the latitude of space has been broken, traditional sculptures have begun to change, and digital sculptures have emerged. It is a new sculpture art form combining computer digital technology and 3D printing manufacturing technology. Compared with traditional sculpture, digital sculpture improves the artist’s work efficiency and optimizes the artist’s creative method: through the combination of 3D printing and 3D scanning, the artist’s manuscript can be digitized first and then directly printed to accurately present the sculpture and save production time. In the stage of sculpture creation and conception, 3D printing technology can be used to quickly obtain detailed object image modeling information; in the stage of creating sketches, 3D printing can be used to quickly make samples for deliberation and selection. Compared with manual sculpture, 3D printing can achieve extremely complex and precise images, it is suitable for any complex shape, and it is very convenient for scaling up and down. At the same time, 3D printing can realize free design, and artists can directly carry out creative carving and modification in the 3D design draft, completely getting rid of many manufacturability constraints, fast, accurate and simple, and greatly releasing the space for design innovation.

Unlimited Possibilities With New Technologies
Compared with manual sculpture, the advantage of 3D printer is that it can realize extremely regular, complex and precise images, and it is very convenient to scale up and down. In these aspects, 3D printing technology can replace traditional sculpture techniques, but it can never fully replace sculpture. home work. Because even if the shaping process can be done by a machine, the core of 3D printing – the establishment of a 3D design draft, is still inseparable from professional qualities such as strong spatial imagination and good aesthetic ability. In addition, just as photography cannot replace painting, it is difficult for mechanical products to express the unique beauty of hand-crafted sculptures. Today, when most products are mass-produced, manual flaws are extremely valuable, and the uniqueness caused by this is precisely the uniqueness of hand-crafted sculptures. Most charming. Contemporary sculptors must be aware of this, so the first thing they think of is how to use this new technology to combine it with their own creative needs. Sculptor Frank Stella used a 3D printer to achieve a unique effect that “makes the work stand out from the wall like a relief” that was “too difficult and burdensome” to achieve with traditional methods . Brooklyn-based artist Shane Hope (Shane Hope) specially made a 3D printer himself, and deliberately adjusted the structure to make some errors in the printing results, so as to realize the uniqueness of the work.
Today, with the emergence of new technologies and new inventions, the rapid acceptance and mastery of new things and cross-border cooperation have become the general trend of contemporary art. The shocking effect brought about by the emergence of photography more than a hundred years ago cannot be replicated, but I believe that in the future , The innovation and infinite possibilities brought by 3D printing technology to art will never be inferior to the influence and advancement of photography on traditional painting.
