Who You Gonna Call for a Michelangelo Sculpture? Fathom 3D Printing of course!
Thanks to the recent advancements in 3D scanning and 3D printing capabilities, we are now able to recreate objects of the past with much greater precision and accuracy than ever before. Recently, three companies teamed up to take on a project unlike anything seen previously. Studio FATHOM, Artworks Foundry, and Scansite formed a partnership in order to create scaled down limited edition reproductions of some of history’s most recognizable artworks.

Carbon Fiber 3D Printing at Home is Now Possible
The MarkForged Mark One 3D printer uses a crude-looking white and beige filament and is rather similar to other small 3D printing machines. The wrenches and tools demoed by founder Greg Mark at CES this January 2015 looked like any other 3D-printed object – flimsy and unfinished, but.... they are truly strong! Objects are completely rigid but lightweight (think : frame for a drone quadcopter). The secret: the material used in this printer is a carbon fiber reinforced polyamid resin.
