    A 3D laser scan uses the power of something called “science” to create a scan of an object which can later be used to recreate the object in 3D. This can be used either for modeling or determining the exact size of a place or thing. We found 3D laser scans of 20 famous buildings that, while we have no idea how to use them to build a scale model, look really cool:

    Mount Rushmore


    Chicen Itza-El Castillo
    Combermere Abbey
    Ancient Merv Icehouse


    Cathedral of Beauvais
    Temple of the Warriors


    Royal Tombs at Kasubi


    Easter Island Heads





    Cathedral of Sao Francisco
