Preview article on the progress of the 3D scan of the widow Bollmann (Galatea) and her tritons from Brandenburg Havel.

Today there is only a short contribution.

We have moved in the last few weeks and are now back in our old home. Shortly after unpacking the last boxes, I got on my bike and paid a visit to the Widow Bollmann.

In Brandenburg, there is the legend of Fritze Bollmann, a grumpy barber who falls into the lake during a fishing trip and drowns. Shortly afterwards, he has an interesting chat with Peter at the pearly gates.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a statue of Galatea surrounded by four Tritons was erected next to a monument to Fritze Bollmann. This legendary figure of the seas was renamed Witwe Bollmann by the people of Brandenburg because of its direct proximity to the so-called Bollmann Fountain.

The Baroque figure, which was created in the 17th century, now stands on the Dominsel in Brandenburg. There I have scanned her and the surrounding Tritons and preparing to publish the figures. However, as this will take a little longer, here are some preview pictures.

As soon as the processing of the scans is completed, and I have made a test printout, a more comprehensive article will appear here on the blog. Perhaps even with a reconstruction of the former structure of the figure group.

More information will follow. If you have any information or perhaps even pictures/drawings of the original construction of the Galatea in Brandenburg, please contact me:

Bonding resin 3D prints, but how?

Anyone who makes 3D prints themselves is regularly faced with the problem of firmly joining different objects together. Especially miniatures made of resin are sometimes difficult to glue together.
Here are my best solutions for assembling 3D printed minis and other models.
