Limited Capacity filling up

While 3D printing continues to rank among the most significant and quickly maturing technologies in the professional world, logistical challenges and perceived irrelevance for many fields have limited its use in the classroom. This is true even in the teaching of art history and archaeology, where frequently the materiality of objects is integral to their interpretations. Our presentation will outline the potential benefits and challenges of using 3D printed objects and 3D printing activities in the study of visual and material culture. Focusing on examples from our teaching and making work, we will consider the practice of 3D printing art historical and archaeological artefacts through the lens of well-established theories of teaching and learning such as critical making and experiential learning. In addition, the value of advances in 3D printing technology (e.g. metal and ceramic filaments) for teaching with, and about, historical objects will be highlighted.
