I would like to introduce an article explaining how a team cloned a 1000-year-old Viking belt buckle with a Handyscan 3D VIUscan laserscanner and a ZPrinter 650 3D printer.
A rough outline of the process is as follows:
1. 3D laser scanning of the item
2. Scanned mesh objects were joined
4. 3D printing (in full color)
