Interactive Fabrication » Fabricate Yourself Fabricate Yourself is a project that documented the Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction Conference. Usually we think of documentation in terms of text, photography and video, but given the tangible theme of the conference we decided to engage the community by capturing and fabricating small 3D models of attendees. This enabled us to build a tangible model of the event and fabricate it piece by piece during the conference. Attendees firstly capture their favorite pose using a Microsoft Kinect. 3D printing cuneiform tablets Published on May 25th, 2011 | by Sevaan Franks Researchers have come up with a cool use for 3D printing technology – making duplicates of ancient cuneiform tablets. Tablets can be copied using latex molds, but this runs the risk of damaging the original, Owen said. The most important recent technological development in the field was digital photography; this allowed millions of ancient artifacts to become instantly available to scholars everywhere. But it is nothing like the real thing.
3D Printers, FDM Prototyping, 3D Models Bring Performance Prototyping In-House The Dimension 1200es features the largest build envelope of any Stratasys Design Series performance 3D printer. Running on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology, it prints in nine colors of real ABSplus thermoplastic. This 3D printer lets you choose fine resolution or faster printing, with layer thicknesses of 0.254 mm (0.010 in.) or 0.33 mm (0.013 in.). Image Gallery Dimension 1200es 3D Print Pack 3D Printers & 3D Production Systems The Stratasys Idea Series levels the playing field by bringing professional 3D printers to individuals and small teams, accelerating creativity. Making the leap to world-class 3D printing at such a low cost is a revolution on its own. If you’ve ever taken a 3D prototype for a test spin before production, you already know its impact. Cut turnaround time and increase quality by building prototypes right under your own roof with Stratasys Design Series 3D printers. Rethink the factory from the floor up. The Stratasys Production Series is built to streamline manufacturing while maximizing your possibilities — handling the largest prototypes and accurate low-volume parts with agility.
Pocket Factory - About In the last several years, 3D printers have become exponentially cheaper and more capable. As these printers become more accessible and ubiquitous, they increasingly answer the question, “How will you make it?” We know how we’ll make things in the future: we’ll press ‘print’. The big question is, “What are you going to make?” That’s the question that we’re trying to answer with the Pocket Factory project: what problems can we solve with a low-cost 3D printer? Additive manufacturing An ORDbot Quantum 3D printer. 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes). A 3D printer is a limited type of industrial robot that is capable of carrying out an additive process under computer control. The 3D printing technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in architecture, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.
Collection News In occasion of its fourth store opening in The Netherlands, Azzurro, one of the most exclusive luxury Dutch fashion shops, has chosen to involve the most innovative Dutch design brand, Freedom Of Creation. In addition to the best clothing brands, the store will also feature some of the most trendy Freedom Of Creation products, including men’s accessories. Freedom Of Creation pieces will be exhibited as true jewels of design among creations of Dolce&Gabbana, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and many others big names from the fashion industry. There will also be on display a Cube 3D printer , which allows people to create their own accessories and designs. Moreover, next fall/winter, Freedom Of Creation will launch new fashion products and try new 3D personalization concepts in the FOUR by Azzurro store. FOUR by Azzurro is located at PC Hooftstraat 127 in Amsterdam.
3D Printing Basics Table of contents: 1. What is 3D printing? 3D printing is also known as desktop fabrication or additive manufacturing. It is a prototyping process whereby a real object is created from a 3D design. The digital 3D-model is saved in STL format and then sent to a 3D printer.
