I’ve collaborated with a miniature teacher on a project. I’ve been messing around with miniature arts for a long time and we planned on making a 3d version of the famous┬áminiature of Fatih Sultan Mehmet. I’ve spent a month to create this model just by looking at the model and of course my aim was to make a model which was precisely the same when you put it in the right angle with the miniature.

The Famous miniature of Fatih Sultan Mehmed the conqurer by Nakkas Sinan bey. Our goal was to model, print and paint it in 3d with great precision with the original miniature.

My main concern was the flower in his hand and since it was my first 3d print project I always checked for errors, holes. Once my model was done we printed it with an industrial grade machine which was one of the three in Turkey.
Luckily the model came out nicely without any flaws;)
The guy over at FSM university, Gokhan was a genius on calibrating and merging the models so I guess %50 of the final output was his success..
The miniature painting will be done by Betul Bilgin, but since this is 3d I guess it will take a long time for us to see it completed. The tricky part is that the 3d model has lots of empty space that is not covered by te miniature and has to be redrawn to match the original.

 

When the miniature is projected onto the model you can see the part which are lacking and some parts that are distorted. The distorted painting needs to be done if we are going to place the model exactly in the same postion and angle of the miniature.
