Through a revelatory partnership between FATHOM, Scansite, and Artworks Foundry for Renaissance Masters, a limited edition of flawless reproductions are being created more than 6,000 miles from the home of the originals. Enter the advanced 3D scanning, industry-leading 3D printing, and expert bronze casting. This collaboration of highly sophisticated equipment and technological expertise from these San Francisco Bay Area companies have transformed the ancient art of metal casting. Fusing the traditional with the modern, the technological revolution and the Renaissance, three dedicated California groups – Artworks Foundry in Berkeley, ScanSite in San Rafael, and FATHOM in Oakland collaborated to use 3D scanning and 3D printing to cast perfect replicas of famous Michelangelo works in burnished bronze.
