We worked closely with the Vikings creative team, talking about how to fabricate props and make them look as detailed and realistic. This weeks 3D prophecy item is a metal brace.
It was a very difficult prop to execute. The 3D scanner had a lot of problems dealing with the negative space but was able to capture the form and scale so we could touch up the model in studio. The full size of the metal brace is about four feet tall.
The metal brace is just one more example of vikings ingenuity, from ship building and navigational tools, to things like skis and hair combs. The brace will not hold a persons weight, do not try to use this brace at home.
Watch the reveal
