Factum Arte's Lucida 3D laser scanner, though still at a prototype stage, was used in the Museo Del Prado in April 20122 to record paintings by Titian and Rubens. The results demonstrated that the scanner had overcome many of the limitations that have restricted the use of 3D scanners for the documentation and monitoring of cultural artifacts.
Factum Arte built a working 3D cement printer that can print directly from digital CAD files. Once the plans had been finalised, a prototype was built for GENESIS, an exhibition about genetics that opened in Centraal Museum, Utrecht in May 2007.
This video features early footage of Adam Lowe and Dwight Perry running tests in cement printing.
