I just looked at one of the websites Jo gave us, and found this particular website very intriguing. As a double major in art history and design, this kind of serves as a merging point (though not a perfect one) for design and art history. Lincoln 3D Scans allows mass accessibility to the artworks in the Usher Gallery and The Collection in Lincoln. Despite how far away someone is, all models can be downloaded and printed without any copyright restrictions. Of course, there are limitations in the simple fact that it's not the actual object, but it's a close replica. It's great how it's available for anyone to print, especially other galleries/museums in different countries/cities. The website's also super easy to navigate, and I appreciate the clarity and simplicity of the design.
