3D Technology & Sheffield Hallam University

Mehdi Sculptures Limited would like to thank Sheffield Hallam University for supporting the project and supplying 3D technical expertise:

We are grateful to Marcos Rodrigues, Professor of Computer Science at Sheffield Hallam University, who has recently completed the task of 3D scanning for the Man of Steel sculpture. This important and complex stage of the development has been handled with considerable skill, resolving many issues along the way and achieving a result that will have an immediate effect in many areas including, design, planning and engineering.

Sheffield Hallam University’s 3D modelling collaboration has allowed Axis Architects to begin modelling a virtual environment that will help explore vital elements that will assist in the final appearance of the sculpture and produce data that will be used in the planning application to Rotherham Council in due course.
