Bust of Vytautas the Great, which is located inside of Vilnius Garrison Officers' Club building, was 3D scanned and then produced a small version of bust.
Object was scanned using two professional handheld scanners of Artec products - "Eva" and "Space Spider" - because statue itself is quite large yet consists of small and rich details e. g. face, relics and other elements. One of the main advantages or perks of using advanced handheld scanners is ability to freely use in any location due to possibility to use battery as a source of power. Artec's battery can be used up to 4 hours of continuous scanning which is more than enough for such object.
A smaller sized version was printed on Mass Portal XD20 3D printer which is one of the best in the market (desktop grade) and helps to achieve smooth surface which leads to easier post-processing. A whole bust was painted and some substances were applied to achieve bronze-alike look.
In short, 3D scanning, printing and post-processing technologies and tools are new approach on producing very high quality and memorable gifts with short amount of time and cost compared to traditional manufacturing.
Vytautas the Great replica was made as a gift of remembrance and gratitude.
