Defining generative design and its software implementation with nTopology, Frustum, and ParaMatters Breaking announcements in printable materials, hardware, and the latest end-use applications are now standard at major 3D printing conferences. Focusing on the latest parts designed for additive manufacturing, typical explanations for how each was conceived likely include the terms topology optimization, lattice design, and generative design. Although these concepts are well established in an academic sense, their commercial implementation and technical definitions have become the focus of large corporations and startups alike.

Studio H « Project H A "design/build" public school curriculum that sparks community development through real-world, built projects Studio H is an in-school design/build class for 8th-11th grade students. First launched in Bertie County, NC and now based at Realm Charter School in Berkeley, CA, Studio H students apply their core subject learning to design and build audacious and socially transformative projects. Students of Studio H have previously dreamed up, designed, and constructed a 2000-square-foot farmers market pavilion, a pop-up park, laser-etched skateboards, sculptural concrete public furniture, roadside farmstands, and more. Through experimentation, non-stop production, tinkering, and a lot of dirt under their fingernails, students develop the creative capital, critical thinking, and citizenship necessary for their own success and for the future of their communities.

A Simple 3D Scanner - Wikiid There are many ways to scan a three dimensional object into the computer. The system described here is not perfect for every application - but is cheap, easy to implement and works for most small-ish objects. This is a 'HOW TO' - but it assumes that you have some basic construction skills, and that you are reasonably familiar with computer software and image editing. Arno Wilhelm is taking my code and turning it into a proper OpenSourced project over at and - so with luck there will soon be a properly robust and portable version of the code I offer here. Meanwhile, Please do not email the author asking for more help with getting this going!

Competition: five Arckit 180 modelling sets to be won Dezeen has teamed up with Arckit to give away five modelling kits from its new series. Arckit was hailed as "posh Lego" when it was first launched by architect Damien Murtagh over two years ago, as it is made up modular components that connect without glue. It aimed to provide architects with an alternative to the traditional cut and glue architectural working models, but the collection has since expanded to include kits suitable for a wider audience.
