Experimenting: Routing Out Plaster Backups For Ornate Sculptural Pieces
We have started to experiment with routing out plaster backups for ornate sculptural pieces. In this case, one-fourth of a round Corinthian capital for the Alberta Legislative Dome was derived from 3D scanning the sample. The geometry was then simplified to become conducive for CNC routing. Once the backup was complete, sculptor Paolo Lucente utilized the scan data and laser cutter to cut accurate profiles to use as guidelines while sculpting the ornate parts of the capital.
