Women of Steel - right-side headBy MyMiniFactory on November 8, 2019 12:14
This is a scan of the head of the rightmost woman in the wonderful Women of Steel sculpture in Sheffield city centre in the UK. It celebrates the importance of women in the Sheffield steel industry, especially during the world wars when the industry would have ground to a halt without them. If you're also interested in the woman's head on the left side you can see it using the link below: https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-women-of-steel-left-side-head-99788 When I was scanning it I met a local man who told me more about the history. He was interested in the scanning because he thought there should be more souvenirs to buy to celebrate the sculpture, like small models. So hopefully this scan will give someone a nice souvenir of a visit to Sheffield. I printed the head about 40mm high and used a combination of sanding, priming and water-based enamel to give it a nice smooth finish. That let me also make a nice mould in two-part silicon from which so far I've made a resin version with fine white sand filler. I've attached a photo of them so you can see what the model looks like printed and as a resin cast. The scan was done with the Sony 3D Creator app on an Xperia XZ1 Compact smartphone, which did a good job of representing the shape. ¬+ | Download free and paid 3D printable STL files
