We tested the possibility of digitizing objects (in our case we chose the statue, which was made by Mate Hohkrauta. The statue has a very diverse surface with a lot of details and interesting texture).

The results ware above our expectations. It`s also great that 3D model can be also modify with tools like ZBrush. You can processed texture remove or change also.

In the opening page, the statue rotates automatically, but you can turning it by clicking your left mouse button.

Uroš Hohkravt was invited lecturer at the International Conference on Additive Technologies. He was talking about Rapid Prototyping and Jewelry Design. On the conference my friend Dr. Igor Drstvensek also introduced me to rapid prototyping guru and consultant Terry Wohlers.

Using additive technology, we designed a light, which was used for prizes at the conference.

Humanost, preprostost, funkcionalnost, pogum, ekstremnost, preporod, itd. Premnogo je pomenov in še več čustev, ki jih povezujemo s Partizansko bolnico Franja. Znak smo oblikovali tako, da odseva vse bistvene pomene, ki opisujejo PBF.

Prepoznaven znak je oblikovan preprosto, barve so zadržane, posamezni elementi znaka se združujejo v celoto in pripovedujejo zgodbo. Križ, ki simbolizira bolnišnico in zvezda za osvobodilni boj sta celota. Skupaj sta sestavljena iz koščkov, od katerih ima vsak svojo zgodbo. Kontrast med elementi, ki se včasih izključujejo, predstavlja bistveno vrednoto in pomen bolnice.

Hospital Franja represents monument of cultural heritage, which was at the time of World War II., the symbol of the fight against the occupier. It’s one of three Slovenian monuments, which bear the European cultural heritage sign. In 2007, a catastrophic storm, almost completely destroyed Partisan hospital. After that, began the reconstruction of destroyed barracks and its surroundings. KvadratPlus cooperates with the Idrija Municipal Museum and the Ministry of Culture in the reconstruction. We are very proud that we have been entrusted to such an important project, such as the revitalization of cultural heritage, which has a special place in Slovenian history.

Uroša Hohkravt and goldsmith master Bojan Zdovc, led a jewelry workshop in Celje. Students were informed with the basics of goldsmith and traditional jewelry making. The workshop was successful and the results were some excellent products. In the future we will try to organize more jewelry workshops.
