Greater New Orleans, Louisiana Area Model Maker

© 2015-2019 by Rieth Creations llc.

It has been an interesting and diverse month of July at Rieth Creations LLC, from Art to a precision model for a court case.

July 27, 2018


First, is a project in collaboration with Entrescan, of a 3D printed life-size bust of Professor Longhair. Entrescan took a 3D scanned image of the bust and created a 3D print in black plastic. Rieth Creations, in a 3 stage process, made it look like polished bronze. From plastic to faux metal.

Next, is a litigation model of a tugboat dual rudder steering mechanism for a court case. The mechanism moves from side to side when someone moves the rudder. Measurements and photos were taken in the field, CAD drawings were created, and the model was created and assembled with parts made from laser cutting.

I built my first model when I was 6 years old. Unbeknownst to me, the kit box had been opened and the instruction sheet and decals were missing. It didn't matter. I had to have a model of the jet that flew over my house as it approached for landing at the Naval Air Station. I built it and painted the markings using the raised decal locator lines. It was messy, but it was mine. And I have had a passion for model making and thinking "Outside the box" ever since.

I was influenced by the film, Star Wars. I liked movies and I liked model building. I had to find a way to combine both into a career. I worked my way through college as a self-employed professional model maker, building architectural and engineering models.
