3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping by Objet Geometries Ltd Products The award winning 3D printed design collection. FOC Collection by Freedom Of Creation is an edition of exclusive design objects, furnishing complements, lighting and accessories, conceived by FOC founder Janne Kyttanen, by renowned International designers and by talented emerging creatives. Ten years of Freedom Of Creation’s pioneering research into the technologies of 3D printing – a process transforming a CAD file into a real object via a printing process adding one layer of matter onto the other until the entire object has been generated – as well as into the unlimited expressive possibilities these technologies provide, have characterized FOC Collection as a trendsetting brand. International architects choose products from the FOC Collection for prestigious interior projects for hotels (such as Hilton The Hague ), stores (such as Kuoni store ), restaurants and other public spaces or for residential environments.

Processing+Ponoko: A programmer's approach to designing for a laser cutter - lucsmall.com Update 21 November 2012: My Ponoko order arrived yesterday. It is proof that the technique works - all lines were cut perfectly, the engraving looks great, and the text is raster engraved beautifully. See below for the ocular proof. I really like Ponoko’s laser-cutting service. The only bit I find hard is capturing my designs in the vector graphics tool Inkscape . A lot of my designs involve repeating elements - equally spaced mounting holes, for instance. Specifying a design in code seemed to bring with it a number of advantages: Point perfect positioning . I’m not saying that these things can’t be achieved with a vector graphics program; rather that I could achieve these desirable things by specifying my laser-cutting design as a program. For about a second, I thought I should approach this by learning Postscript . Create design in Processing. After a bit of experimentation, I found this technique to work really well.
Tech Biz Chinese Scientists Are 3D Printing Ears and Livers – With Living Tissue Specially modified 3D printers use live cells that could theoretically be transplanted. Researchers in China have been able to successfully print human organs using specialized 3D printers that use living cells instead of plastic. Researchers at Hangzhou Dianzi University actually went as far as inventing their own 3D printer for the complex task, dubbed the “Regenovo.” “Xu Mingen, Regenovo's developer, said that it takes the printer under an hour to produce either a mini liver sample or a four to five inch ear cartilage sample. According to Xu, the Regenovo can print in a sterilized environment with temperatures ranging between 23 and 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Xu admits that the science fiction-inspired body part printer is still in its infancy, with much fine-tuning needed to realize the Regenovo’s full potential. “Before printing you can preview the print path of each layer and determine suitable speed and temperature. Here is a video of Dr.

| Syllabus / Designing-For-Digital-Fabrication-S11 Description: The ability to digitally fabricate parts and whole pieces directly from our computers or design files used to be an exotic and expensive option not really suitable for student or designer projects, but changes in this field in the past 5 years have brought these capabilities much closer to our means, especially as ITP students. ITP and NYU now offer us access to laser cutting, CNC routing, and 3D stereolithography. In this class we will learn how to design for and operate these machines. Class No. 1 Jan 26- Introduction Class introductions. Class No. 2 Feb 2 - 2D Drawing Class No. 3 Feb 9 - 2D Fabrication - Laser Homework: Think of a project (1.5 weeks, so not too ambitious ) for the laser. be prepared to discuss in class next week, and show completed in two weeks. Class No. 4 Feb 16 - 2D Algorithmic Design Class No. 5 Feb 23 - Fasteners and presentation of Laser assignment Class No. 6 Mar 2 - 2.5D Fabrication - CNC Router Class No. 7 Mar 9 - 3D design for CNC 2.5D fabrication
Imprime-moi un organe | Monde Académie Sciences 60 secondes : c’est le temps qu’il faut aux chercheurs du Nucleolab de New York (Etats-Unis) pour reconstituer par bio-impression en 3D le corps entier d’une jeune patiente de 22 ans, Leeloo Dallas. L’opération est réalisée grâce aux cellules retrouvées dans un fragment de son bras, après le crash du vaisseau Mondo-shawan.

Freedom Of Creation | Pioneers in 3D Printed Designs BOS academic : The Miura-Ori map The Miura-Ori map by Ian Bain Folded maps are merciless to the user who makes the slightest error in returning them to their compact form. Pt the Tokyo ICA meeting Koryo Miura and Masamori Sakamaki from Tokyo University's Institute of Space and Aeronautical Science demonstrated an application, of space science, combined with a little Origami, which transforms the ergonomics of map folding. Miura and Sakamaki normally work on the problems of packing large flat items, like satellite antennae and solar collectors, into the smallest, most compact shapes with a view to deploying them as rapidly and as simply as possible. They saw three problems with naps folded at right angles in the conventional manner. The key to an alternative system of may folding lies in the ancient Japanese art of paper-folding, origami. Professor Koryo Miura has since sent us a copy of the paper which was distributed at the International Cartographical Association's conference last August. Other related sites include;
