3D Print of the Week

3d print of the week: Detail from the Santi Luca e Martina cathedral

This week’s featured print is for a Penn Design seminar that looks at important Italian Baroque cathedrals with the aid of laser scans, 3D prints, and drawings. This is a piece of the main dome of Rome’s church of Santi Luca e Martina (San Luca and Santa Martina) which was designed by architect Pietro da Cortona. The project aims to accurately reflect how the church was finished and to reveal hard-to-see details.
