Here are the results of a collaboration with "Minimaal", a Belgian company making 3D prints. It was a new and enriching experience for me.

Photo 1: Flesh and Acrylic - Martin // Photo 2: Fight for Your Rights // Photo 3: Scanning Martin's arm // Photos 4, 5, 6, 7: Scanning & modeling Martin's arm // Photo 8: The 3D print is made with a ZCorp 3D printer. The main component used in this case is a monochrome powder called Z150. This powder gets injected layer after layer, according to the 3D model, until the object is totally reproduced with details and textures. To make a solid sculpture, Minimaal adds a Zmax epoxy, giving extra strength and durability to the 3D object // Photos 9, 10, 11, 12, 13: 3D print in progress // Photos 14, 15: Acrylic painting on the 3D print // Photo 16: Exhibition of the final piece in presence of the model at "Art Event" fair (Namur - January 2012)
