3D Scanning and Plastic Injection Moulding – Sushi with a Twist

A long time client and subscriber to our Enewsletter Gary immediately thought of 3D Scanning when this project came up.

GARY DEIRMENDJIAN is an artist based in Sydney, his practice encompasses sculpture, photography, video, installation and site-specific intervention. He has exhibited extensively and has received numerous awards and new work invitations and commissions for private and public artworks, as well as site-specific projects.

Gary was commissioned to create a lamp shade in the shape of the famous soy sauce fish. Every one that has eaten sushi  has seen one of those.

To help with this task WYSIWYG 3D came on board. The scope was to 3d scan and design a soy sauce fish lamp and create a file that was ready to be sent for plastic injection moulding with no work in between. The final goal was to have them hanging on the ceiling as lamp shade.

WYSIWYG created the file and sent it straight to one of his associates to be created.
