Question:

Is there any halakha that banned the replica of objects and utensils from the Beis Hamikdash?

Answer:

Yes. The gemara says that we may not make a duplicate of the Heichal, Ulam, Azara, Shulchan Menorah, however it is permitted to make a replica of the menorah of six or eight branches, but not of seven. If the replica is made in a way that it would not be permitted to use, even b’dieved in the Mishkan, i.e. Menora of wood or pottery, then it is permitted. This is the general halacha. If you have a question about something specific let us know.

Best wishes
