Get Models Now

Challenge

Polish company Get Models Now, undertook a project from a client to design and manufacture a stylish frame for his painting. The client wanted it to resemble antique Baroque frames that can be seen in museums and churches. Their first challenge was to make a unique design, split it into 3D printable parts, and provide proper joints. 3D printing allowed them to create complex and detailed ornaments on the frame.

Solution

Using ZMorph 2.0 SX, 17 parts were printed to make a frame of 700 mm x 500 mm. With so many parts, it was possible to imitate full-scale stucco works carved on original Baroque frames. But the frame made by GMN is much lighter and manufactured in significantly less time, even including post-production. Art historian and an experience antique restorer used a set of professional treatments to mimic the original look of antique arts and the results are stunning.

Result

Specialized in antique restoration and digitization of the museum collections, Get Models Now designed and manufactured a 3D printed Baroque frame that can fit well into vintage interiors as well as into private collections of art for which it was originally ordered. Printing of all parts took 4 days with some additional time needed for post-production, which added authenticity and antique feel to this original design.
