Petchkovsky took numerous pictures of this chipped sandstone wall from various angles and then fed them into Agisoft PhotoScan in order to get his 3D model. He then used the dimensions to create Lego pieces that give the appearance that the wall is actually built from the brightly colored bricks.
Shapeways printed his piece and then Petchkovsky simply had to slot it into place in the chipped wall!
He created the project for the Instructables “make it REAL challenge” and is drawn to 3D art because “it is possible to create amazing and surprising effects, objects that can seamlessly blend between reality and imagination.”
The most creative use of 3D printing you may have ever seen. Credit: Greg Petchkovsky www.gregpetch3d.com . Music: Final Hour by Sole Symphony
