Projects:
Leonardo DaVinci Horse
Clients: Talix Foundry

Challenge
Rapidly reproduce sculpture enlargements and reductions from the world famous master sculpt of the Leonardo DaVinci Horse. Complete final sculpts in 30 days, with a clay exterior surface final tuning by the client prior to bronze casting.

Process
Prior to the advent of laser scanners, Design Circle pioneered a method for accurately probe scanning and reproducing in any scale complex, three-dimensional sculptures. Once the product was scanned and surfaced using DCI’s unique methodology, our engineers digitally modeled the complex form, slicing segments into CNC machined parts then re-assembling and skinning them with clay, thus reproducing the sculpt in any scale.

Result
DCI shaved 60 days off any previously used method, while improving accuracy. DCI’s scanning method created the best way of scanning recreating and preserving priceless sculptures.
