How 3D Printing Miraculously Restored The Thinker
The world famous Auguste Rodin-designed sculpture was repaired by the Belgian firm iMaterialise.
The Thinker, one of the best known sculptures of our time, which was badly damaged in a sensational museum burglary a few years ago, is back on display after undergoing extensive repair, thanks to the Belgian firm iMaterialise and its 3D printing technology.
