We can replicate it for you wholesale

This is incredible. The video below, from the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Fraunhofer IGD), showcases what the latest 3D digitisation technology can achieve. Their CultLab3D modular scanning system can take a cultural artefact and produce a high resolution 3D model in just ten minutes. Amazingly, this system carries out all the post processing, image colour correction and texture creation automatically; all the curator has to do is place the object on the conveyor belt at the start, and remove it at the end.

Through automation, 3D digitisation can now be carried out at scales previously unheard of, bringing with it a reduction in cost. By bringing down the cost of 3D digitisation, Fraunhofer IGD claim to have made it financially viable for institutions to digitise whole collections.
