Atam Academy Insignia
In September 2018, representatives of the Atam Academy School inquired about creating a bespoke insignia design for their flagpole that would be unveiled at an opening ceremony on 13th October 2018.
We produced a few different concept designs in 3D and presented them to the school. Once they agreed upon a design we split the insignia into four parts and engineered keying joints that would enable the part to be securely reassembled once printed. As the khanda would be installed externally and subject to adverse weather conditions the parts were printed in ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), due to ABS being more durable and being able to withstand higher temperatures. The parts took 38 hours to print in total.
Epoxy adhesive was used to attach the parts and gaps were filled using common wood filler and sanded out to ensure a smooth realistic finish. Once assembled the finished piece was primed finished in metallic paint giving it a durable finish and even a magnetic property.
