Creating 2 meter tall bronze statue using 3D printing technology

In collaboration with the London Bronze Casting Company, voxeljet UK Ltd used its 3D printing expertise to produce a 2.2 meter high statue called ‘The Green Man’.

A project to commemorate the foundry that formerly operated in Deptford, London where he now stands. The form and shape of the statue is based on foundry worker, Bill.

To create the part, Sally and Vince (technicians at London Bronze Casting) 3D scanned Bill using a photogrammetry technique. The data was then manipulated in a variety of CAD programs to produce a final digital finish and look.

The figure of Bill carries two cast impellers (a rotor used to increase the pressure and flow of a fluid), a fitting reminder of the products that were formerly made on the site.
