Mirroring the adoption of photography as the new media of the 1800s is the growing availability and early adoption of 3D imaging as a service for museum documentation. This short paper considers the opportunities for 3D imaging and printing systems within a museum or conservation workflow and comments on the best practice that needs to be developed in order to match the available technology to the needs of users of 3D digital and printed artefacts. It is supported with a case study illustrating the full production cycle from an original negative plaster cast to the final product in the form of a physical exhibition replica.
