3D Printing and Education in the Virtual Curation Laboratory

by Bernard K. Means

3D printing and painting of artifact replicas occupies quite a bit of my time and that of the undergraduate VCU students working in the Virtual Curation Laboratory.  Today, AntiquityNow published online an interview that I did this summer on the educational benefits of 3D scanning and printing.  You can find this interview here: http://antiquitynow.org/2014/11/18/saving-the-past-with-3d-printing-an-interview-with-dr-bernard-means-director-of-the-virtual-curation-laboratory/
