Replicating Small Historic Items

When: 
Tuesday, Dec 05, 2017 04:00pm to 06:00pm

Use some exciting new technology to make rare items more available. 

During this two hour workshop you’ll see how a 3D replicator will scan a historical artifact, and then print it with a 3D printer.  We’ll show you how to do some post-production work to make this look more like the real thing.  This process would allow a replica of an object to be put on display to the public while preserving the original.  You will do the finish work on an item to take with you, like a button or buckle.

Because of the products being used, this workshop is for those aged 14 and up.  Light refreshments will be served.  Preregistration is required and space is limited.  Register here or by calling the library during open hours, 902-679-2544.
