the metropolitan museum of art (MET) has made available to the makerbot community the massive sculptural collection housed within their walls to be documented in a user-driven digital database. this storage of information would house the virtual maps necessary to develop three-dimensionally printed recreations of the gallery space’s treasured classic artworks. the group participating in the compilation of the digitized building plan library has posted thirty-four sculptures to the growing database on thingiverse. through the use of 123D catching software and with the assistance of ‘the replicator’ 3D printer, the group of hackers have started their thorough documentation of the MET’s artstore.
