Workshop – 3D Printing & Material History: Historic Artifact Replication 101 (Megan Weiss, Digital Matters Graduate Fellow, Graduate Student in Dept. of History)
March 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am MST
In this workshop, Digital Matters Spring fellow Megan Weiss will share some of her experience in the benefits and pitfalls of historic object replication. Learn some 3D printing basics and as well as how you can recreate surfaces, weights, and aesthetics of historical objects with 3D printing and scanning technologies. This workshop includes a demonstration of the 3D scanning process with different source material, a group discussion about how these reprinted artifacts deepen the public’s connection to Utah’s history, and how new technologies can make museum collections more physically accessible and still preserve them.
