The entire collection of rare objects at one of the world’s most famous museums, the Smithsonian, may soon be readily available for other museums and organizations around the world, thanks to 3D printing! Using oversized 3D scans, the Smithsonian Institute is making a effort to recreate their massive collection, from sculptures to fossils, and make 3D models and a 3D digital archive of each. One of the first specimens, a 3D-printed replica that the Institute made of a Thomas Jefferson statue from Monticello, was just installed at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
