Mr Cadbury’s Bust

Market Sector: Art, Fashion, TV and Film

Processes Used: SLA - 3D Printing

Model Type: Exhibition Models

3D data could not be obtained for this project, so the original bust of MR Cadbury was 3D scanned giving Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) a 3D CAD file to work from. This process can also be termed as reverse Engineering. Using the 3D scanned data, MNL were able to produce a full size bust of Mr Cadbury using one of MNL’s large frame 3D print machines called Stereolithography (SLA). This method of 3D printing was chosen for its combination of achieving the finest detail and accuracy/surface finish. The model could be built on one rather than in sections. MNL’s team of skilled model makers then put their finishing skills into practise to transform the 3D printed model into a perfect high gloss finished bust in Cadbury purple. This bust now is on permanent show within the board room of Cadburys in the UK. Key processes used; Reverse Engineering – 3D Scanning 3D Printing – Stereolithography Finishing – To a perfect gloss
