When building Conway Hall in 1929, the bronze bust of Moncure Conway went missing and the building’s entrance niche was left empty for 87 years. In 2016, however, a 3D print bronze-effect bust of Conway was unveiled, courtesy of a year-long project to restore this missing piece of heritage. In June 2017, the story continued with the launching of the publically available 3D print software of the bust thanks to Conway Hall, Dickinson College (Philadelphia, USA) and My Mini Factory’s Scan The World project.
