The Antikythera Mechanism

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient mechanical computer designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was recovered in the early 20th century from a wreck near the Greek island of Antikythera, but its significance was not recognized until decades later. It is thought to have been built in the 2nd century BCE. Technological artifacts of similar complexity did not reappear until more than a thousand years later. Its degree of mechanical sophistication is comparable to what devices? More...

I wonder do scientists use 3D printers to create the models discovered by means of Computer Tomography images?
