BLENHEIM LIONS RESTORATION
With today’s ever increasing desire for access and information there is often a fine balance between conservation and public display. Museums, art galleries and heritage centres are under pressure to promote their collections (many of which are irreplaceable) while at the same time keeping artefacts secure and in a state of preservation.
Architectural items such as carved stonework, terracotta tiles and plaster mouldings may need to be reproduced to match missing or damaged pieces. Items may be bulky, fragile or just not transportable and so an increasing number of museums, galleries and heritage centres are looking to Quod's 3D scanning services to accurately reproduce these items within a 3D virtual museum. Because we can reproduce any item in 3D printed form and as a fully rotational web visual, the vital work of restoration and conservation can continue while the public see – touch even – an exact replica.
