Smithsonian Institution Offering Virtual (and Printable) 3D Models of Artifacts

Starting Nov. 13, the Smithsonian Institution began scanning and modelling some of their vast collection of artifacts to make them more accessible to patrons.  They are offering them as both a virtual model, able to be viewed through a web browser, and also as a downloadble file that a 3D printer could print from.  The collection is still somewhat limited, but more will follow.

Check it out at 3d.si.edu

(Thank you Dennis, fixed the link!)

Hi Michael,

You need to re-edit the link to the Smithsonian in your article. It's currently this: http://scls.typepad.com/techbits/2013/11/3d.si.edu
