Antiques from Syria Revived with 3D Printing


A client came to us with some family antiques of high sentimental value passed from one generation to the next.  They were crafted by silver artisans in Syria.

Some of the glass bowls and cups were broken, so we re-created the designs in 3D that were exactly like the originals and 3D printed them.  We used PLA (Polylactic Acid) a bio-plastic made from corn starch and gave it a fun twist, as this particular plastic glows in the dark!

The client told us: "Restoring the bowls with 3D printing permitted us to return its value and exhibit them again.  A marriage between new technology and ancient craftsmanship! Thank you!"
