Plastic print

Adam Metalo with the Smithsonian Institution Digitization Program Office holds an ABS plastic 3D print from an affordable printer. The blue head is hollow, but is available with infill. The original head is a life mask of Abraham Lincoln from the National Portrait Gallery. The American Alliance of Museums Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center has displays on 3D printing.Algerina Perna, Baltimore Sun
