Freshmade - Model - Design - Company - Replica
Freshmade 3D, an Ohio-based model design company, has unveiled a 9ft 3D printed replica of Pio Fedi’s Liberty of Poetry statue, which resides at the Opera di Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. 3D scan data was taken from this statue, which is said to have inspired the Statue of Liberty, to create 3D printed sand molds on an ExOne system. Freshmade 3D’s AMClad material was also used to facilitate the molds.
The 3D printed replica statue is on display at the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration in New York City in an exhibit, titled “Sisters in Liberty: From Florence, Italy to New York New York”. This is a collaboration between Kent State University (KSU) and the Opera di Santa Croce.
