    Project description:

    Despite the fact I have absoultely no knowledge about the opportunities of these new technologies, I dare to make first steps into this new world.

    In this context I post this first project – a work I´ve developed from (partly) felted and (partly) spun and “woven” lamb´s wool on wire, fitted into a wooden frame.

    Before creating a reproducable file of the work itself, in a first step I simply need some proposals how to reproduce something like that with new technologies so it will look similarly to my origninal. Is there any technology that could help copying the texture of the felt or the spun and “woven” wool in contrast to the wire and the wood?

    The size of the frame
    outside:42x36x2 CM
    inside: 32×26 CM
    the wire “cobweb” on some spots is up to ~3cm high

    How similar could the reproduction possibly be?
    How could the combination of the wire structure, the texture of the wool and the felted picture (middle) be reproduced?
    What would it take to reproduce the work?
    Could someone explain the process to me?
    And how much would the making of the file probably cost? As I have no idea, I filled the “Budget” Issue randomly.

    I really hope for some patient assistance along these first steps and some first proposals for my work.

      Hallo, meine Name ist Maxi Möckel und wie Nuno bin ich der Meinung dass Ihre Projekt einige Herausforderungen bietet. Es ist möglich Oberflächenstrukturen wie Wolle in ähnlicher Form als 3D-Modell nachzubilden. Der schwierige Teil an Ihrem projekt sind die dünnen Fäden welche 3D-gedruckt sehr instabil und zerbrechlich wären. Alles in allem könnte man das Objekt aber nachbilden was sicherlich mehrere Tage in Anspruch nehmen würde. Bezüglich der kosten würde ich nur für das Design etwa 1000 € veranschlagen, die Herstellung (je nach Größe) kostet dann weitere 2-3000,-€ in einem guten 3D-Druck Verfahren. Farbigkeit ist im 3D-Druck nicht ohne weiteres möglich, hier würde sich ein bemalen per Hand tatsächlich eher eignen. Wenn Sie weitere fragen haben kontaktieren Sie mich gern. Viele grüße nach österreich,

      Hello. My name is Nuno.
      The project you present here is very, very challenging. To make it very similar, it would be an insane amount of work from 3D scanning the original part (with an industrial grade scanner) – service i cannot tell how much it would cost, but a lot – and then print it in a very specific kind of printer so it would come out with all the “depth” and color – this should cost around €2000 to execute, in my opinion –
      For the record, we cannot do this level of service.
      An much more “doable” form, in my opinion, would be to 3D draw the circular frame as it is, with a flat base, but all it’s form and features around, and along with that, draw a “planified” version of the inside – from the SpiegleinSpieglein_2.jpg Front view. Then, with some artistry – which i am sure you possess – the item could be painted.
      Another alternative, which could be really cool from the point of view of uniting craftsmanship with latest technologies, would be to print the frames and then do the “inside job” the traditional way. That would really be a good conversation point – we do a lot of these “future traditional” stuff and it’s always a success when you talk about it.
      I know i didn’t answer to all of your questions but i hope i have helped.
      Any other questions, feel free to say 🙂
      Best regards,
