3D scanned at our London HQ. The exterior 3D scanned pretty well considering the small size. It was then exported to ZBrush to be cleaned up then improved for 3D printing.
Integrity & Accuracy
It was important for the customer to use the little frog sculpture as the basis of the design - it gave them something tangible as a starting point, so the design process meant only small tweaks to refine the original rather than starting from a sketch or mood board.
3D Design & Cleanup of 3D Scan
It is possible to zoom in and create very clean edges and shapes in the 3D software which is a huge benefit with small objects. Alongside this it was necessary to keep some of the spirit and feel of the original sculpture by keeping the slight irregularities in the surface.
