Integrating 3D Printing in Heritage Design

  This project proposes to offer an alternative approach to the contemporary heritage souvenir experience through the utilization of 3D scanning and printing and online, remote interfaces between the museums, galleries and heritage sites and local 3D printing facilities, without an in-between 'gift shop' provision. It proposes to provide a desirable, customizable, cocreated range of products, based on scanned in versions of artifacts within the museums, galleries and heritage sites,
produced remotely in the tourists nearest local 3D printing facility.
