Copying physical items is not as easy as copying a piece of paper, you can't exactly stick it into a copy machine. However, surprisingly technology for how to copy physical objects have come a long way in recent years, and have also become available for those without deep pockets. In this video we're copying a couple of different objects, using different methods, with different rates of success! Enjoy!

This video is light on workshop and hands on making, so if that's not your cup of tea, watch another video.
