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.

3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping by Objet Geometries Ltd Freedom Of Creation | Pioneers in 3D Printed Designs An Open Web-based 3D Modeling Program for 3D Print… and More - SolidSmack There are only a few things that get me excited: mild shocks, alligator punching and web-based 3D. I wish I could say the following combined all three, but two outta three ain’t too shabby. Benjamin Nortier from London, UK has done the unthinkable. He’s taken it upon himself to develop a free, parametric 3D modeling program for the browser, whereby combining alligator punching mild shock and web-based 3D. Putting 3D Modeling in the Browser For a breakdown of what inspired Benjamin to take this on, and why other modeling programs are not adequate, you can read his thoughts at his blog. Benjamin’s goals is for a 3D modeler which: is cheap, free or opensourceis parametric and has variables for complex modelshas a productive UI The only thing I’d add to that is cross-platform. There are three components he’s using to make all of this possible: You’ll notice the creation of the geometry is currently all numeric entry. Onto Something Big Benjamin is onto something big here.

Will 3D Printing Reboot Manufacturing? [PICS] has 17 definitions of the verb “to print,” but none of them conjure up images like the metal cross you see on your right, or other objects such as glass figurines, iPad covers or even shoes — all of which can now be printed with the help of special machines. The process of "3D printing" only loosely corresponds to our common image of printing. It may, however, revolutionize the way we define and interact with manufacturing. Chief among the proponents of this view is The Economist, speculating in a February cover story that the technology “has the potential to transform manufacturing because it lowers the costs and risks,” thus opening it to smaller players. It’s not hard to see this line of logic. Just picture a local craftsman able to make his own customized bicycle using parts created from his printer. "3D printing will for sure be a new mode of manufacturing," says Peter Weijmarshausen, the CEO of Shapeways, which creates 3D objects for consumers. The Cost

About My3DScanner The Grizzly: First Fully 3D Printed Rifle Gets a Shot Off This is an update to the ongoing progress with 3D printed weapons. Activist Post The eyes of the world are on the innovation of 3D printing. Naturally, whenever a new technology is created that offers open-source DIY opportunities to the average individual, it is going to make governments and their protected corporate interests very nervous. Such is the case with 3D weapons manufacturing. So far all 3D guns have been produced from composite materials, which has led to instability in real-world firing situations. The gun printed is an M1911, a single-action semi-automatic pistol, and was made with a selective laser sintering (SLS) process using powdered metals. The gun was produced on a state-of-the-art industrial printer, which makes the cost of the M1911 3D printed weapon slightly prohibitive, but as we have seen with technology, it shouldn't be long before high-tech and cost effectiveness merge.
