Preserving our Global Heritage Through 3D Imaging – commentary by tech entrepreneur and art collector John Dodelande

After news of the Notre Dame’s fire in 2019, everyone has been left to wonder if it can even be restored at all to its previous state. Luckily, Andrew Tallon scanned the entire cathedral in 2015, creating a perfect digital copy. With 3D technology to digitize art and landmarks, we now have a way to preserve our global heritage and historical landmarks.

3D printed concrete formwork

Create complex concrete formwork faster and cheaper with digital production
Concrete formwork in construction can account for 40-60% of the total budget, especially for complex shapes like curved concrete formwork. Some designs such as organic geometries, double curved surfaces and voids are simply not feasible as they require highly skilled labour to produce bespoke formwork, resulting in high costs, long lead times and wasted materials.
