Museum replicas and exhibition models

From 3D surveying to the exhibition model – full service from a single source. Model building and replica production in museum quality.

Our model making department uses various computer-aided CNC milling and 3D printing technologies (e.g. rapid prototyping, fused filament fabrication (FFF), sand printing) as well as moulding and casting processes. Through manual post-processing and artistic colour finishing, we turn your haptic exhibition and presentation model into a unique object.

Call us for a free and detailed consultation about the documentation and reproduction method, the most suitable material and the appropriate technique.

 

We can generate the 3D data set for you or use your own to produce a haptic exhibition model.

You can choose to add interactive multimedia information through 3D projections, with VR content to appear on smart phones and tablets via programmed tracking or simply 2D information presented on integrated touch panels.

From 3D Scanning to Serial Production

The non-contact 3D survey is usually carried out on site. Objects can also be brought or sent to us for scanning. All other steps and individual intermediate results (e.g. positioning and size of your logo etc.) will be coordinated with you. Before serial production begins you will receive a final specimen in the desired material. Only then, after your ultimate approval, will the serial producion launch.

Custom-made and unique pieces! The objects are captured on site (e.g. in a museum or archive) in 3D without contact. Depending on the object size or surface, different documentation methods are used. After data processing, a detailed digital 3D model is available (current state documentation). When reproducing replicas, we place special emphasis on a high level of detail on the one hand, and on the other hand we strive to achieve an impeccable surface finish through manual restoration painting. This corresponds to the original or the customer’s specifications!

3D Interior Display Models

Your exhibition model is either printed in the original colour texture or manually painted by our in-house artist according to your guidelines in order to achieve a vivid look. Popular models include modern or historical architectural models, models of church, models of sculptures, copies of archaeological finds or museum pieces.

Interior and Exterior Landscape Models

Models for exterior use are produced with weather resistant materials such as bronze, artificial stone or concrete. The most sought-after models include models with Braille, tactile models and relief plates.

High-Resolution-Printing allows us to create landscape reliefs with finest details and in full color. The printed information can replace top-projections or supplement extensive landscape projections.

The surface is made of plastic, weather-resistant and with a silk-matt finish.
