Located in Athens, Zeus, Temple of Zeus at Olympia was created by the sculptor Phidias in 422 BC, was known as "the seven wonders of the world". Now, a team is using Stratasys 3D printer to copy it out of the company, but the smaller size.
Under the plan, the 3D version of the statue of Zeus will be the Millennium gate Museum in Atlanta (MilleniumGateMuseum), a new exhibition organized by one of the main exhibits.
