Back in December of last year Direct Dimensions traveled to the 98 Rock Studios in Baltimore and laser scanned Amelia in person.
That 3D data was brought back to DDI, aligned, edited, and modeled to be posed in a classical form.
Once the digital model was complete, DDI sent the data out in order to have a "casting master" rapid prototype created. This casting master was used as a pattern to make a mold for the poured liquid marble.
After the final liquid marble piece was created, it was sent back to DDI to have final hand-finishing work completed.
The finished marble bust will be auctioned on eBay starting Monday, May 22, and going for 10 days. All proceeds will go to the Maryland Zoo.
