Digital tools have brought new techniques for recording and fabrication allowing for the augmentation of traditional processes in repairs and restorations. Traditional mechanical and chemical techniques require physical contact to the artefacts of interest, while LiDAR Scanning, photogrammetry and structured light scanning provide non-invasive solutions. Analog recording technologies have always informed fabrication processes, but contemporary digital recording can produce complete geometry for fabrication. In this paper, we discuss recording and fabrication technologies and how they have been applied for heritage conservation.
