Cosmo Wenman, an artist who has scanned sculptures at such museums as the British
Museum in London and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, has printed and assembled a couple remarkable works life size including the Head of a horse of Selene and the Portrait of Alexander the Great being held at the British Museum. More information is available on a feature page at Makerbot’s web site . They were printed using Makerbot’s original Replicator printer (which can print objects up the size of a small loaf of bread) and fused together before finishing. These projects show that as long as ingenuity is available, the build volume limitations of low-cost 3D printers are not absolute.
