Croatian company Vectrino used 3D printing to create a replica of the Šibenik Cathedral of St James, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for a new exhibition.
A new multimedia centre is opening in Šibenik, Croatia which will provide information for visitors about the city’s cathedral. And 3D printing plays a big part in providing visitors with a detailed insight into its construction.
The technology has long proven useful for creating prototypes and architectural models. And in this case, the result is stunning to behold; a transparent replica of Šibenik Cathedral of St. James created by 3D printing company Vectrino.
The company used transparent resin to 3D print the cathedral so that visitors can peer inside the model. The new permanent exhibition will provide visitors with details on how the cathedral came to be.
The resulting print renders this architectural achievement from the 15th and 16th century in perfect detail. It’s no wonder the cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
