Replicas of armor for the permanent exhibition at Heldburg: Replicas replace originals
Between spring and fall 2022, we were commissioned to implement a special project on behalf of and in cooperation with the German Castle Museum at Veste Heldburg in southern Thuringia.
One of the highlights in the German Castle Museum on the Heldburg are the “Knights Fighting”. However, since the previous “fighter group” in original armor is being returned to the loaning museums, a similar replica was to be created.
From the 3D surveying of an original plate armor of knights from the 16th century, the processing of the digital 3D models, the 1:1 3D printing and finally to the manually coloring by our artist team – the project included many phases with cross-departmental workflows.
The steps from digitization to installation of the replicas are presented on a separate project page found here…
