A Dutch design firm Conc3rde has proposed restoring notre dame with 3d printing technology and has already prepared a sample structure of “gargoyle demon”, using the remains of fallen burnt down structure as raw material feed (in the form of new powder mix) for 3d printer.

The sample structure looks very promising and as usual 3d printing would be not only cheap & fast but has also proved its capability of restoring the people’s faith and beliefs in times of need.
