Cosmo Wenman – Making Art Accessible with 3D Scanning

Cosmo Wenman is a man with a dream. His dream is to allow anyone who has ever wanted a sculpture that can only be found in a museum or a gallery the chance to have one.

In May 2012 he proved his point by taking photos into Autodesk 123D Catch, he created a mesh of Venus Reclining on a Sea Monster with Cupid and a Putto by CosmoWenman and made the resulting model available for free on the diverse and vast model repository, Thingiverse, which just recently reached the 100,000 ‘Things’ milestone, but the way.















Over the last year he has been 3D scanning pieces in museums in Europe and the US and using those scans he has created files that anyone can use to print life-size or reduced reproductions of those very treasures.

“It’s a chance to spread faithful reproductions of treasured artwork far beyond the walls of elite palaces,” says Wenman.
