Printing and Re-mixing the Museum in 3D
What is 3D printing and what does it mean for the museum? This webinar is designed to introduce beginners to the concept of 3D printing by defining the basic vocabulary surrounding this emerging technology. Weâll discuss the multitudes of opportunities for 3D scanning and printing, especially in education and collections access showing examples from programs at the Art Institute of Chicago. Weâll consider how 3D can be used to build closer relationships with our audiences by engaging the senses and re-mixing the collection to creatively explore the artworks in new ways.
