America’s Veterans and the Virtual Curation Laboratory

by Bernard K. Means

The Virtual Curation Laboratory is working with the Virginia World War I and II Commission and the Virginia War Memorial to help tell the stories of America’s veterans. These efforts focus on 3D printing and 3D scanning artifacts and historic items from World War I and World War II.  Some of the digital models that we have created are available here. We will also be participating in a December 8 event highlighting the 75th anniversary of America’s entry into World War II at the University of Richmond’s Robins Center, Richmond, Virginia, Thursday, December 8, 2016, 9:30 a.m. – Noon. On display will be a wide variety of replicas, including a replica of Russell Scott, a World War II veteran we 3D scanned at the Virginia War Memorial–a 3D printed replica of Russell is also on exhibit at this Memorial.


This week, in the Virtual Curation Laboratory, we began working on another replica of Russell as part of our efforts to highlight this brave veteran.
