A firm in the Netherlands that specializes in 3D printing has a plan to rebuild parts of Notre Dame that were consumed by fire on April 15.

Rotterdam-based Concr3de specializes in using 3D printing technology and proposes to recreate the destroyed areas of the over 850-year-old French cathedral, using the building's original materials-- taken from the ashes. One of the stone gargoyles found on Notre-Dame's rooftop has already been re-made as an example.

Concr3de previously made a copy of the 3rd-century Monumental Arch of Palmyra in Syria, which was almost completely destroyed by ISIS forces in 2015.
