#3DxMuseums – Skulpturhalle Basel: Cosmo Wenman’s 3D Printshow Collection, London/Paris 2013 #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning

Cosmo Wenman has been pushing boundaries in museums for the past year and a half, diving into the world of photogrammetry and 3D scanning wholeheartedly in his attempt to create replica models of important artifacts of history and art.

His crowdfunding project to visit the Skulpturhalle Basel museum to scan items there might not have succeeded, but Autodesk stepped in and funded the activity anyway. So we can look forward to many incredible scans and printed objects coming from Cosmo from his adventures in the Skupturhalle Basel museum this September, a collection that includes molds and casts created by artisans from some of the most important sculptural artwork in the world!

Here are two that he has shared already:

Venus de Milo, 130 BCE

1850 plaster cast by the Louvre atelier, 3D captured in the Skulpturhalle Basel museum 9/2013

This print of Venus de Milo is derived from my recent 3D capture of the Skulpturhalle Basel museum’s 1850 plaster cast of the original. That high quality cast, likely made by the Louvre’s own atelier, was part of a vibrant 19th century tradition of museums, universities, art schools, and wealthy collectors buying and trading plaster reproductions of famous works from each other so that they could be seen by larger audiences. That tradition is about to be brought back to life — when I publish my 3D capture and 3D printable files of Venus de Milo, anyone will be able to print their own copy. (Read more.)

Winged Victory of Samothrace, 200 BCE

1892 plaster cast by the Louvre atelier, 3D captured in the Skulpturhalle Basel museum 9/2013

This print of Nike, Winged Victory of Samothrace is derived from my recent 3D capture of the Skulpturhalle Basel museum’s plaster cast of the original. That high quality cast was made by the Louvre atelier in 1892, and was one of the most popular plasters to be collected by museums, universities, art schools, and wealthy collectors around the world. Now that Winged Victory has been unveiled here as a 3D print, I will publish my 3D capture and 3D printable files, and she’ll be unleashed for everyone to enjoy. (Read more.)
