Hi, I'm Dean Smith
SAMPLE OF RECENT METHODS
- Museum methods in Taxidermy are unique and require many years to master. One method as shown, requires the manikin to be hand bound in woodwool, with plastic castings of the head, the tanned skin is sewn onto this manikin.
3D routing manikins
- Modern 3D scanning can be used to fabricate a manikin by routing it in styreene. The specimen can be scanned after and prior to processing, using rendering programs the scan can be manipulated and adjusted to suit the required posing and size, then routed into shape with internal supports incorporated.
- Balls Pyramid model being sculpted in clay over a 3d carved form. The form fabricated from images. From a boat 200 images are captured around the island, these are stitched together in specific programs on computer to generate a detailed 3d render.
- The file can be used to print a 3d model at scale, ready for detailing.
