The great monument of Jesus Christ in Świebodzin.
Christ the King ( Polish: Pomnik Chrystusa Króla) is a statue of Jesus Christ in Świebodzin western Poland, completed on 6 November 2010. The figure is 33 metres (108 ft) tall, the crown is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall and along with its mound, it reaches 52.5 meters (172 ft)overall.
SMARTTECH had the opportunity to participate in building process of Christ the King statue in Świebodzin. To make this unusual project happen, our company was asked to – by using our most sophisticated device – scan the basic smaller figure and prepare a CAD model. Two meter high sculpture of Christ the King handmade by an artist, was delivered to our headquarter where we made a scan to receive a 3D documentation. Because this kind of project cannot be built as a single construction, CAD model was further processed to obtain the appropriate scale of the object. The figure was virtually divided into easy to manufacture and assemble segments. Without 3D scanning technology, this project would be far more difficult to achieve. 3D scanning made it possible to save enormous amounts of time and funds, and minimized the chances of failure of the operation.
