About Project

Bianzhong is an ancient Chinese musical instrument consisting of a set of bronze bells, played melodically. The Chime Bells can date to as early as 2100 BCE. The transportation of such large and brittle cultural relics costs too much, and some museums would order resin replicas due to the tight budget.

Solution

  • Step 1: First our engineer needs to check the structure and make sure the size is correct. The wall thickness should also be large enough to make the details obvious.
  • Step 2: As it is a display model and has rich patterns, we recommend using SLA 3D printing technology. It can produce models with complex designs, intricate details and a smooth surface. SLA Generic Resin is good enough for making such a display model.
  • Step 3: When printing gets finished, clear the parts and wash with IPA to get rid of excess materials. Sand it to remove the marks. Spray with putties and further polish the models. Color them with golden paint and an airbrush.
