3D Print your own artifact from the Smithsonian
Our new favorite browser experience today is from the SmithSonian, in collaboration with Autodesk. Using 3D scanning and some wonderful innovations, both companies have managed to bring artifacts from the SmithSonian to life in our browsers.
Besides bringing the artifacts to a larger audience, 3D scanning also allows professionals to restore minute details, one fact that brought tears to the curator’s eyes, according to Brian Matthews, Group CTO of Autodesk in this article (There is also mention of Seven Billion people visiting the SmithSonian every year, honest mistake I know, but I can’t help myself. ).
