CASTING CONTEST


WINNERS


Fine Art Awarded to Artcast for WWI Canadian Flying Ace Memorialized in Bronze


Artcast was called upon to produce a monumental sculpture of Canadian World War I flying ace Roy Brown, who was credited with shooting down the “Red Baron,” Manfred von Richthofen, in 1918. Incorporating the use of 3D scanning technology and additive manufacturing, saved their client weeks to months of work. Having the digital file allowed them create the sculpture in any scale for the client. For this project, Artcast made smaller, four or five-inch- tall versions of the casting, which were used for donor recognition. The Scanning and printing process has become a necessary part of Artcast’s process for enlargements, and costs are becoming more reasonable as the processes are being perfected.


PART: Monumental Sculpture Size: 72 inches tall Alloy: Bronze


Notes: Employed use of digital scanning and 3D printing to produce in various sizes.


Artcast, Inc. Architectural Hardware Award Recognition for Aristo-Cast


Purely serving a utilitarian function, park benches are typically not considered anything beyond a functional resting place. Working with customer Autodesk, Aristo-Cast employed generative design to rethink the way we look at and interact with furniture in the public space. The designer wanted to create a piece that causes us to look twice at the humble bench and invite us to engage more, explore the twists and turns, admire the thing that we would normally sit on without a second thought.


The size of bench and the intricacies of the form presented a challenge to addressing this project as a one piece casting. Aristo-Cast took the approach of casting it in six sections and weld assembling to form the final product. Traditionally, benches can be casted or produced as weldments. The cost to produce a customized bench would typically be prohibitive both on the design side as well as the manufacturing side. With the advent of digital prototyping tools, particularly this new breed of Generative Design software, Aristo-Cast can create several designs to suit different form, function and aesthetics by using the power of cloud computing.


Aristo-Cast, Inc. PART: Park Bench


Size: 59.00 x 41.50 x 30.00 In. Alloy: A357 Aluminum T6 Condition Notes: Casting conversion from fabrication/ weldment
