Digital fabrication devices exploit basic technologies in order to create tangible reproductions of 3D digital models. Although current 3D printing pipelines still suffer from several restrictions, accuracy in reproduction has reached an excellent level. The manufacturing industry has been the main domain of 3D printing applications over the last decade. Digital fabrication techniques have also been demonstrated to be effective in many other contexts, including the consumer domain. The Cultural… 
A Proposed Framework For Affordable CAM Replication In Cultural Heritage
TLDR
This work proposes a framework to democratize the subtractive manufacturing processes required to replicate digitally recorded cultural heritage artifacts using open-source/license-free software and hardware tools and presents an application of the framework by simulating the fabrication process of a laser-scanned bass relief usingOpen source and license-free CAM software as described in the proposed framework.
REPLICAS IN CULTURAL HERITAGE: 3D PRINTING AND THE MUSEUM EXPERIENCE
TLDR
The aim of the research is to analyse the metric characteristics of the printed model in relation to the original data, and to optimize the process that from the survey leads to the physical representation of an object.
HANDHELD VOLUMETRIC SCANNER FOR 3D PRINTED INTEGRATIONS OF HISTORICAL ELEMENTS: COMPARISON AND RESULTS
TLDR
This research compares different meshes, obtained with different instruments and techniques, in particular a medium and a short-range volumetric handheld camera, with the aim of evaluating the best solution for the 3D printing and providing some guidelines for this kind of operation.
From Historical Silk Fabrics to Their Interactive Virtual Representation and 3D Printing
TLDR
A new methodology to virtually represent historical silk fabrics and produce 3D printouts, also making it highly interactive through the tool Virtual Loom, allowing the studying of silk heritage while avoiding their degradation and creative industries to save money and materials.
Restoration of an 18th century frame: 3D modelling, printing and matching color of decorative flowers elements
This paper describes the application of 3D digital technology to support the rebuild of lost decorative elements of an historical frame. The frame belongs to an 18th century painting depicting the

3D Printing for Cultural Heritage: Preservation, Accessibility, Research and Education
TLDR
It is expected that 3D Printing will not only become vital in the field of reconstruction of objects, but also for research, documentation, preservation and educational purposes, and it has the potential to serve these purposes in an accessible and all-inclusive way.
Interlocking Pieces for Printing Tangible Cultural Heritage Replicas
TLDR
The proposed technique to decompose a 3D digital shape into a set of interlocking pieces that are easy to be manufactured and assembled makes the final reproduction cheaper, accurate and suitable for the reproduction of tangible cultural heritages.
Parametric 3D-fitted Frames for Packaging Heritage Artefacts
TLDR
This paper proposes the use of the generative modelling language in order to produce unique 3D-fitted containers for packaging heritage artefacts which fit tightly the artefact, and can be made to be reusable and more durable than traditional packaging solutions.
FROM REAL TO..."REAL". A REVIEW OF GEOMATIC AND RAPID PROTOTYPING TECHNIQUES FOR SOLID MODELLING IN CULTURAL HERITAGE FIELD
Abstract. The documentation and 3D modelling of Cultural Heritage are now mainly based on digital techniques to produce complete, detailed and photorealistic three-dimensional surveys. The
Automatic Production of Tailored Packaging for Fragile Archaeological Artifacts
TLDR
The main goal is to create an ad hoc packaging software solution by combining the use of 3D scanning and 3D milling technologies, providing a real-time application with visual feedback.
Topographical scanning and reproduction of near-planar surfaces of paintings
Paintings are near-planar objects with material characteristics that vary widely. The fact that paint has a material presence is often overlooked, mostly because we often encounter these artworks in
Shape enhancement for rapid prototyping
TLDR
The contribution of this paper is a shape enhancing technique which allows users to increase readability of the tiniest details in physical replicas, without requiring manual post-reproduction interventions.
Combining X-ray micro-CT technology and 3D printing for the digital preservation and study of a 19th century cantonese chess piece with intricate internal structure
TLDR
This project explores the use of x-ray micro-CT technology to scan the Cantonese chess pieces with a voxel separation of less than 9 μm, and generates 3D surface models of the separate parts to enable close inspection of both exterior and interior sections.
Computational hydrographic printing
TLDR
This work proposes the first computational model for simulating hydrographic printing process, and extends the method to enable multiple immersions, each with a different object orientation, so the combined colors of individual immersion form a desired texture on the object surface.
