Are you the owner or caretaker of unique pieces of art, history, or other types of artifacts? Would you like to loan, display, or otherwise share this artifact with others but aren't sure about the risks?

Please consider artifact duplication.  Using a combination of high definition 3D scanning and state of the art full color 3D printing, we can make a very detailed copy of your artifact or artwork.  Through the use of 3D scanning, we avoid the side effects of traditional mold-based duplication methods.   This allows us to perform the scans in a secure area of your choice during which the only thing that touches your artifact is a low wattage laser.  Once the scan is complete, you will have a digital ‘back-up” of your object.  With scanning detail in the sub 100 micron range, an immense amount of detail can be captured.  This not only insures an accurate physical representation, but can also be helpful in the study of the object.  Full color 3D printing allows us to make secondary, watermarked copies of the artifact or artwork at almost any scale.

Cahokia Crawfish (Circa 1200 C.E.)

Made of a region-specific flint clay, this artifact traveled almost a thousand miles before being discovered in a Spanish fort and held in private hands for almost a century.  Recently duplicated and with copies presented to several museums, the public is now able to view this lost treasure.
