Museums often decide to make copies and replicas of their exhibits but the process is time-consuming and expensive. Companies like Get Models Now are changing that by using 3D printing to recreate valuable, historic objects. This is why the Museum of Applied Arts, part of the National Museum in Poznan, Poland, asked experts from GMN to create a series of miniature objects and arrange them into miniature interiors.
Using 3D scanning, GMN was able to digitize authentic pieces from Baroque, Rococo, and Biedermeier periods. Once scaled down, the objects were 3D printed with eco-friendly materials using ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer. Post-production was a crucial stage of this project with even the smallest details hand-painted on the models for authenticity. Painted objects were then placed in small sceneries resembling actual historic interiors.
Miniature interiors include 3D printed wardrobes, desks, couches, chairs, tables, and smaller decorations like vases and candlesticks - all with an outstanding level of detail. Sceneries built by the experts from Get Models Now are already at display in the Museum of Applied Arts in Poznan, next to the original pieces. Their role is to give the visitors a better understanding of the period and how applied arts evolved over time.
