3D Printed Hat Block
Design and construction by Athene Wright.
This project was intended to explore the possibility of preserving and replicating vintage and antique hat blocks. The applications of this process extends beyond just replication. Having a digital copy of a block will allow damaged blocks to be repaired and reproduced. In addition the digital file can be resized so that these blocks can be made in any size and to any specification.
