In cultural heritage study of 3D modeling has become a very useful process to obtain indispensable data for documentation and visualization. 3D scanning and 3D printing suggest a vital solution in preserving and sustaining traditional folk costumes. 3D scanning and 3D digitizing is defined as the process of using metrological methods to ascertain the size and shape of a scanned object, which may often involve an optical device that rotates around the desired scanned model.

The aim of this paper is to show 3D scanning technology that produces a high-precision digital reference document to provide virtual model for replication, and makes possible easy mass distribution of digital data. We also experimented with 3d Additive manufacturing or 3D printing to show a way to actualize digital forms of folk accessories for the experimental manufacturing and to show a way how to preserve nowadays the original object. The work includes scanning, modeling, and printing of waist coat and of coin handicrafts. Experiments will be carried out on 3d scanning, 3d modeling software, reconstruction and fabrication -rapid prototyping.
