voxeljet - Creating 2.2-metre tall bronze statue using 3D printing technology
Working with the London Bronze Casting Company, the UK arm of voxeljet brought their 3D printing expertise to help produce ‘The Green Man’ – a project to commemorate the foundry that formerly operated in Deptford, London where he now stands. The form and shape of the statue is based on a foundry worker, ‘Bill'.
To create the part, Bill, Sally and Vince (technicians at London Bronze Casting) were 3D scanned using a photogrammetry technique, the data was then manipulated in a variety of CAD programs to produce a final digital finish and look.
The form itself was printed on a voxeljet VX1000 PPB printer at our manufacturing facility in Milton Keynes, UK and then processed at London Bronze Casting, a foundry focused on research, innovation and craft to produce the final statue standing 2.2m tall and weighing 200kg.
