For those working in the UK and Europe, it is worth pointing out
that we also have 3D scanning technology in the Laser Technology
section of The Conservation Centre at National Museums and Galleries
on Merseyside. This technique can be used to create replicas of a
wide range of objects where direct moulding is inappropriate. We
have used it to make replicas of sculpture, architectural detail and
other works of art.  We also provide this service to third parties.
Please contact David Thomas at NMGM if you would like to know more
about this process.
