Illustration of archeological is a key factor for tourist or lay people to interested in historical monuments. At present, technological plays a significant role in historical monuments illustration. Most of 2D information system, which is only allow users to visualize architectural elements with limitation, compared with real building or physical model is more tactile allowing users to easily understand spatial information. The objective of this research is to create information technology system for historical monuments illustration using augmented reality and 3D printing technology. This method allows the system users to understand archeological information beyond limitation of current illustration system, such as building modification in a period of time and space. Our experimental site is Prasat Khao Lon, Sakaew Province. This archeological site is partially collapsed, which is suitable to our presentation system that can visualize miss part of the building.
