What is digital sculpture?

After printing, all the models go through a post processing stage using sculpting techniques in order to give each sculpture its unique character.

Digital sculpting, also known as Sculpt Modeling or 3D Sculpting, is the use of software that offers tools to push, pull, smooth, grab, pinch or otherwise manipulate a digital object as if it were made of a real-life substance such as clay.

Digital sculpting can introduce details and achieve stylized results that would otherwise have been difficult or impossible to create using traditional sculpting techniques.

The sculpture is a digital model created using 3d digital software. We either work using traditional media making a 2D or 3D model and then we digitally design it using a proper program or we work directly in digital media.  Then,  the 3D model (digital data) is divided in layers in g-code and printed using a 3D printer.  

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to processes used to create a three-dimensional object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. There many types of 3d printing. We use a Fused deposition modeling (FDM) printer, the Prusa M2 model. A small sculpture can be printed in one piece but for the large sculptures we divide the digital model in many parts. For example, the big version of Argos Stray is composed of over 50 printed parts that are weld together.

After printing, all the models go through a post processing stage using sculpting techniques in order to give each sculpture its unique character. For smoothing and polishing the final object we hand finish using natural methods or applied materials (lacquers or paint).
