Smithsonian Making Artifacts Available for 3D Printing


The Smithsonian is making some of their artifacts available for 3D analysis -- even 3D printing. When used for non-commercial purposes you can download the raw 3D data. Some examples of the objects available are Amelia Earhart’s flight suit, a 1903 Wright Flyer, or an ornate 18th-century Italian Pergolesi chair. The idea is to help students, teachers, and people who just love design examine and study some of the worlds most incredibly designed objects in detail.
