About Project

The Terracotta Army is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE with the purpose of protecting the emperor in his afterlife.
The terracotta army figures were manufactured in workshops by government laborers and local craftsmen using local materials – yellow earth. Heads, arms, legs, and torsos were created separately and then assembled by luting the pieces together.
We made a scaled-down version of one of the famous Terracotta Warrior with DMLS printing technology. There are rich details in the less-than-10cm-high miniatures. And it's printed in one piece, no more need to create the parts separately.

Solution

  • Step 1: There are rich resources about Terracotta Warrior on 3D model platform. We just buy one from the Internet, add supporting structures and arrange the placement in the software.
  • Step 2: Prepare the steel powders, heat the printer chamber to correct temperature, then the laser touches the area as the set route.
  • Step 3: Break the thin supports with pliers, cut the thick supports with wire cutting. Polish to remove the bumps.
