3D PRINTED BOOK OF BAS RELIEF

We've discussed the ability to print books in 3D, and wondered about the future applications for numismatic books. Here's an article about another example - a 3D printed book of bas relief from Art Institute of Chicago. -Editor

3D-printed book Tom Burtonwood sez, "I have just published Folium, a 3D printed book of bas relief from the Art Institute of Chicago; it's posted to thingiverse for download: 12 pages, 9 scans featuring works of art spanning over 2000 years, from the Ancient Egyptians to Louis Sullivan department store decorations."

Burtonwood's last 3D printed book, a collection of textures and reliefs, was also a free download.

In addition to the scans all the texts have also been translated into braille so that low sighted and visually impaired people can experience the reliefs and identify what they are.
