Raw project planning

In order to make this project succesful, it is important to test this technique with a glass which is more or less identical to the Boymans en van Beuningen glaswork. Therefore we will scan a glass from the Delft archeological archive next monday. After this, the DICOM scan model will be converted into an STL file which can be used to 3d-print the negative mold including runners. When this mold is made, Maaike Roozenburg will make a porcelain model. After this proces it will be clear if 3d printing plaster is good enough for porcelain fabrication. The molds for the inside of the cups (inner mold) will be made out of plastic, so also for this part we need to do some work to get everything clear. If the 3d-print plaster is nog good enough for a negative shape mold, plan B is needed. In plan B, the glasswork will be directly printed in 3d as a replica. After this, a mold of real plaster will be made around this replica.

7 oktober will be the day for scanning the real glaswork. After this, time will be a determing factor because on the end of october, the porcelain cup has to be ready for the Delft science fair.
