The City of Sydney celebrate Chinese New Year with larger than life Chinese Zodiacs – all twelve of them were featured in around the Sydney Harbour and Haymarket.

The Chinese Zodiacs start life as a 2d sketch by the artist, from there it’s up to our animation and 3d modelling specialists to turn those 2d sketches into 3d models.  Our animation and 3d modelling specialists used a combination of animation software and engineering software. This allowed greater flexibility for design changes but the engineering team required a suitable format for engineering analysis and manufacturing.

The original pig was 3d laser scanned and the data used to produce a roto mould so that hundreds of pig lanterns could be made cheaply and quickly
