A historic places preservation project in digital form.

We are a group of high school seniors from Frankfort High School. As our senior year internship, the four of us are working with the Franklin Center for Innovation’s Makerspace to build and print 3D models of local and statewide historic landmarks. We are working under the business name “3DKY", and our final goal is to 3D print and display a full topographical map of the entire state of Kentucky.


3dKY’s mission is to preserve and educate Kentucky’s citizens on historic sites. By creating tangible, 3D models of historic Kentucky sites and maps, we can help increase spatial reasoning and awareness, aid in preservation efforts, and educate on historic Kentucky sites for future generations.
