Photogrammetry used to require specialist equipment, but now, with a few caveats (eg no shiny or transparent surfaces), any camera or phone can be used to capture multiple angles of an existing sculpture/maquette which I can then reconstruct and tidy up on the computer to producing a digital 3D model. This can then be used, for instance, to create a scaled up version (using robotic carving) for bronze casting. Or as a way of recording work in digital form for a virtual gallery/archive. Or create multiples using 3D printing. Some 3D printing techniques can produce some beautiful and substantial table sculptures or 3D wall art.
