3D scan and print of a Greek Coin
“Of course, people have creating reproductions of ancient art and artefacts since antiquity, but there’s some great potential in 3D printing and scanning. By creating scans of objects in the field, archaeologists can then reproduce artefacts at home, while the originals remain in their country of origin. They can produce multiple copies for use in teaching and, if the scan is of sufficient quality, can enlarge objects and reveal tiny details”
