At the American Museum of Natural History’s two-week camp Capturing Dinosaurs: Reconstructing Extinct Species Through Digital Fabrication, a group of teens learned the processes and tools used by palaeontologists for studying dinosaur bones and digitally reconstructing them.
And we got to tag along for some of it. It all begins in the deep underbelly of the museum, where campers are given access to an entire library collection of dinosaur bones to analyse. The Free Universal Construction Kit. Ever wanted to connect your Legos and Tinkertoys together?
Now you can — and much more. Announcing the Free Universal Construction Kit: a set of adapters for complete interoperability between 10 popular construction toys. 3D Print: Everyone is an artist!? - Agenda - Kunstcentrum Haarlem. A collective embroidered soundscape of Athens. “Think It. Make It. Share It.” RiAus SALA Exhibition. ‘Think it.
Make it. Share it.’ is a collaboration between Fab Lab Adelaide and RiAus. The exhibition is a collection of beautiful and inventive digitally-fabricated works including 3D printed and laser cut objects from Fab Lab Adelaide. Highlights include a 3D printed relief map of Adelaide featuring scale models of every building in the city centre, Idris the dragon guarding her 3D printed treasure and laser-cut urchin lanterns hovering over a 3D printed cityscape. Hyperform Design Reseach. Hyperform is a collaboration between Marcelo Coelho, Skylar Tibbits, Natan Linder and Yoav Reches with the support of Ars Electronica and Formlabs.
While 3D printers are becoming increasingly accessible and capable of rivaling the quality of professional equipment, they are still inherently limited by a small print volume, placing severe constraints on the type and scale of objects we can create. Hyperform is a design and research project that attempts to address this problem by identifying computational and material folding strategies that will allow large scale objects to be compressed into a minimal volume to maximize the printing capability of desktop 3D printers.
Interactive Art and Computational Design, Spring 2012 » Billy Keyes – Final Project – SketchSynth. SketchSynth: A Drawable OSC Control Surface SketchSynth lets anyone create their own control panels with just a marker and a piece of paper.
Once drawn, the controller sends Open Sound Control (OSC) messages to anything that can receive them; in this case, a simple synthesizer running in Pure Data. It’s a fun toy that also demonstrates the possibilities of adding digital interaction to sketched or otherwise non-digital interfaces. Background Ever since I was little, I’ve been fascinated by control panels. Replicating a 19th Century Statue with 21st Century Tech #3dthursday. April 18, 2013 AT 1:00 pm Check out David Huerta’s write-up “Replicating a 19th Century Statue with 21st Century Tech” over at the Brooklyn Museum blog, and follow through to the full article for details of the challenges he has faced experimenting with photogrammetry tools for creating digital models of real-world sculptural pieces: My first exposure to the world of 3D printing took place in 2009 approximately 500 feet under the Earth’s surface in a former missile silo in the Washington state desert.
There, three founders of a new Brooklyn-based 3D printer company hosted a workshop on building a 3D printer kit as part of Toorcamp, a nerdy version of Burning Man. At the end of the kit’s 4-hour assembly we printed out some tiny jewelry boxes. At the time 3D printing seemed to me like a novel technology for hackers with lots of potential, but not one I had any specific use for.
Alive. Vincent & Emily - Two robots in a relationship struggle and emotional conflict. Created by Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler and Carolin Liebl, Vincent & Emily are two self-willed robots who are in a bizarre conflict between each other and their surroundings.
The robots are designed to explore solitude of a partner relationship and their impulses. Mimicking humans, using sounds and gestures, the robots have speakers motions controlled by their motors. In addition, the creatures capture sounds and movements via sensors and react on those signals with own expressions. Just like in each human relationship it comes to misunderstandings: If Vincent sends positive signals by up and down movements, it is possible that Emily interprets even those signals as negative. THROUGH A SCANNER, SKULPTURHALLE by Cosmo Wenman.
My name is Cosmo Wenman, and for the last year I've been 3D scanning artwork in museums and using those scans to 3D print life-size reproductions.
I've been sharing my 3D printable files online so that anyone can 3D print their own copies too. You can see some of my work here: cosmowenman.com It's been a labor of love for me. I've been doing it for myself, for other art lovers, and for students and educators—for anyone who's dreamed of owning fine sculptural art, but hasn't had the means until now. Resinance - Interaction, smart materials and swarm behaviour. Realised by the students of MA of Advanced Studies class at the Chair for CAAD and supervised by Manuel Kretzer, Resinance is part of an ongoing series of projects exploring the potential use of smart materials in an architectural context.
Influenced by the behaviour of simple organic life forms, in its assembly the project represented an ecology of functional units that could both work autonomously but also in coordination with their neighbouring units. It consists of 40 active elements that are gradually changing their surface color in response to human touch. To make these slow transformation visible, each device is equipped with a second actuator, providing direct response through shivers and vibrations.
Every four elements were connected through a control unit that formally resembled the rest of the objects but without the ability to change color. My Atoms Are Your Atoms. 3 Excellent Uses of 3D Printing from Eyebeam's 'F.A.T. Gold' Exhibition. 1.

April 25, 2013 AT 5:00 am Liz Neely, the Director of Digital Information and Access at the Art Institute of Chicago, has been doing a great job encouraging visitors to participate in capturing digital models of their collection, including the Saint John the Baptist sculpture above, captured by Christian Oiticica and posted just a few hours before I put together this post. While several museums, including the Met Museum and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco have held special events for the purpose of exploring the possibilities of scanning and sharing replicas of work, Neely boldly pushes this curatorial practice into an ongoing collaboration between museum and those who love the museum. Here is the message Neely shared on Thingiverse about this project: Art Institutue of ChicagoThe Art Institute of Chicago is a world-renowned art museum housing one of the largest permanent collections in the United States.
Teaching with a 3D Simulacrum. When Shelley and David brought up the idea of 3D printing, my not-so-inner tech geek and my really-blatantly-outer education geek got pretty excited. As Shelley mentioned in her previous post, 3D printing is a hot topic in the museum world right now, with some exciting experimentation happening around the world.
Just this week I was at a meeting at the American Museum of Natural History, hearing about some of the exciting 3D printing projects they’re working on with some of their teen programs. In our use it made sense to start with the Sensory Tour, our monthly tour for visitors with visual impairments as well as anyone who wants to experience art using more than just their sense of sight. We continually had great success using raised line drawings (they’re just what they sound like; the lines are literally raised from the surface of the paper) to help people feel contours of two-dimensional art. Why not try the same thing with one more dimension in the mix? Grâce à l'impression 3D, l'art passe à l'échelle nano.
My Atoms Are Your Atoms. 3D Printing Is The Future Of Manufacturing And Neri Oxman Shows How Beautiful It Can Be. Neri Oxman's piece Monocoque 2 uses a 3D printing technique that allows parts to be made from multiple materials in a single build. To be on forefront of a cutting edge field like 3D printing, the skill set required is pretty stacked. You need to be a designer, engineer, researcher, innovator, and technologist. Mining Habitat for Miami Projects Art Fair. Marius Watz “Space Filler” At Flux Factory “Not So Silent Auction” #3dthursday. December 13, 2012 AT 3:00 am A new 3D printed work by artist Marius Watz “Space Filler” (2012) now available at the Flux Factory online “Not So Silent Auction.” Watz has been creating limited edition releases of 3D printed work for a couple of years now, created in parallel to the development and teaching of his highly influential custom library for Processing: modelbuilder.
