Maryland-Based Manufacturers Produce Busts of Governor Larry Hogan for Manufacturing Day

  1. 1. The Busts of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Maryland-Based Advanced 3D Manufacturers Produce for Arbutus Owings Mills Gaithersburg
  2. 2. Maryland Manufacturing Day Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Direct Dimensions traveled to The State House in Annapolis on Sept. 21, 2017 to 3D scan Governor Larry Hogan. The overall process took approx. 3 minutes plus we had time to discuss about how 3D scanning helps manufacturers solve 3D problems. The 3D Scanning Process
  3. 3. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan After the scanning, Direct Dimensions processed the raw scan data into a high quality 3D digital model suitable for 3D printing and worked out the fabrication design parameters. The 3D Modeling Process Maryland Manufacturing Day
  4. 4. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan The 3D digital file was sent over to Sean Wise, CEO of Repliform, a Maryland-based manufacturer for 3D printing in high resolution photo-cured resin. The 3D Printing Process Maryland Manufacturing Day
  5. 5. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Repliform fixtured the 3D print for plating and applied a layer of conductive material. The Plating Process – Conductive Layer Maryland Manufacturing Day
  6. 6. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan The Plating Process – Copper Layer Repliform then plated the 3D bust with copper to form a very thin yet very strong layer. Maryland Manufacturing Day
  7. 7. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Repliform applied a patina coating to the copper to create a finish aesthetic typical of traditional bronze sculptures. They also mounted the bust on a nice wood base. The Plating Process – Patina Maryland Manufacturing Day
  8. 8. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan The 3D digital file was also sent over to Randy Altschuler, CEO of Xometry, a Maryland- based manufacturer for 3D printing in power-based Nylon material. The 3D Printing Process Maryland Manufacturing Day
  9. 9. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan The fabrication of Governor Hogan’s 3D printed busts was a collaborative effort of three Maryland- based manufacturers: Direct Dimensions, Repliform, and Xometry plus RMI of Maryland. Thank you Governor Hogan! Maryland Manufacturing Day
