The Evaders Garden Sculpture

3D Printing3D Printing

If you happened to attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2015 then we have little doubt that you saw the stunning award-winning garden ‘The Evaders Garden’ by Chorley Council! The garden featured a fascinating sculpture of a World War II RAF pilot, and Central Scanning helped with elements of its creation.

The sculpture is of Stan Everiss who is the father of the Garden Designer and sculptor of the piece John Everiss. Stan’s plane was shot down over enemy lines in war torn France. He was saved by a young local man and aided by the French Resistance. This statue commemorates Stan’s story as his figure appears crouched next to a seemingly dilapidated building where names of those that protected him during his plight are engraved in to the bricks in the wall.

In March 2015 John approached Central Scanning to help with creating the sculpture of his father. Donning original RAF uniform he was 3D scanned by our Application Engineer Tom using the hand held Artec Eva. The Eva was the ideal 3D scanner to use as it picked up both the colour and texture of John’s outfit. The scanning process took place over a course of four hours at our headquarters in Bromsgrove.

Using Polyworks software Tom sectioned the scan data and supplied it to the cutting company who then used this data to produce spaced metal plates which John would ultimately layer to allow light to shine through the sculpture creating a mesmerising effect of the Pilot looking like he is moving in and out of time. The sculpture will be a permanent feature at Astley Hall in Lancashire.
