REAL OR 3D MODEL?
Museums use high technology to preserve and save precious objects.
The arrowhead to the left is a 3D scanned and printed model. Some arrowheads like the two real Clovis points seen below, are so rare that they can only be viewed at museums in display cases. 3D scanning and printing allows exact copies to be made.
Real Clovis points from 12,500 years ago found on Long Island.
The duck pipe to the left is the only one of its kind. Used in ceremonial rites, the duck head faced the smoker. This example belongs to a private collector and shows the need for 3D scanning. It is not available for viewing by the public or researchers. But if it were 3D scanned, the file could be used by scholars and teachers.
