Okay this is great and all but instead of 3d printing ancient artifacts and buildings, wouldn't it be better properly preserve these buildings.


This seems like a great technology but I would rather have our government
(Plus world governments) and people protect the real thing.

Although this little 3d printed Taj Mahal would look nice in anyone's home:

They should not create giant life size replicas of these ancient treasures. 

Especially with what happened to the giant buddhas in Afghanistan a few years ago
and most recently in Syria. 

These sites require PROTECTION from all of us. 

Appreciate 3d printing but this is by no way a way to protect history.

Agreed, you can't repro Palmyra from 3d printing.

The obvious remains....just so.

So the most egregious offenders need to be reminded...ISIS; and other fundo wacko Islamist extremists and terrorists, for example. And the nation states that sponsor them. Syria, a proxy of Iran, does not give a rats ass if centuries old Christian churches and their worshipers are destroyed. Which means neither does Iran or any of its proxy thugs

But that is a waste of time as they will ignore it.

Solution?

Elimination of the aforementioned.

They cant ignore SLCM's

Capture a few thousand of the morons and make them rebuild what they destroyed.
That is, I believe, what was done with the Buddhas the Taliban blew up.

Never happen as they do not care...only solution is SLCM's on a regular unannounced basis...until they get the message...and then it's doubtful.
