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 CNC router is being put to use to produce models that twist and bend in all 3 axes. In this case the blocks are for a window surround in the lantern of the Alberta Legislative Dome. These blocks are ideal for our machine’s 5 axis capabilities as are able to match the surfaces perfectly […]
