Seti’s Tomb being 3D printed
Specialist art company Factum Foundation is running a five year project to 3D print a replica of Pharaoh Seti I’s tomb, CNN reports. Part of the replica is already on display in the Antikenmuseum Basel in Switzerland and it is indistinguishable from the original. Three Egyptian specialists have already been trained to use the scanners that transfer the information to the printers. The hope is that the technology will be used for other archaeological sites around the world. Seti’s tomb was discovered by Giovanni Belzoni in 1817 and is considered incredibly rich in its artwork and intricacy (watch, runtime: 2:56).
