Produced by machines using economical parts and shareable through online repositories\, 3D-printing and its associated processes such as digital photogrammetry offer the specialist and student of ancient architectural history compelling tools for documentation and analysis. In addition\, their products offer alternatives to intrusive and often irreversible on-site physical rebuilding and restoration measures\, generally known as anastylosis. Case studies for this presentation come from the author’s experiences and fieldwork conducted at the archaeological sites of Sardis and Aphrodisias in western Asia Minor\, modern Turkey. This talk also considers some of the challenges involved in taking on a 3D-printing project for making precise replicas of objects\, big or small. \nSponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America. \nFree and open to the public. \n URL: LOCATION:Rm L140 Elvehjem Building CATEGORIES:Front Page,Lecture END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
