Techno-artefacts: 3D Laser Scanning and Printing
All Roads Lead to Poems/All Odes Lead to Rome
Being Human

We are at a new dawn of design technology where we can create something seemingly from nothing at the push of a button. However, the remit of 3D printing far exceeds the realm of design. Archaeologists are now able to use the technology to recreate items once thought lost to history. At our drop-in event, learn how 3D laser-scanning technology works and see for yourself the 3D printed objects. Alongside this print revelation, however, questions arise: what is the role of printed objects, and how should these be used alongside the originals kept behind glass in museum cases?
