Creating a coin from a scanned sculpture in ArtCAM Pro

This sculpture was created by Paul Brown, a Birmingham-based (UK) sculptor.

Unfortunately the bust did not cast well leaving a crack down the side of the face. Using a scanning machine, a high-resolution STL file was created and imported into Delcam's artistic CADCAM software, ArtCAM. Using ArtCAM 2012's sculpting features this crack and other sculpting imperfections were smudged, smoothed and erased from the model.

To show how this model can then be used for other applications, the ArtCAM team embossed it to create a coin design.
