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?

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. The advantage my eight-year-old self still has is variety.
While the program is designed to recognize these symbols, it doesn’t reject all other marks. Technical Details SketchSynth is built on openFrameworks and makes heavy use of Kyle McDonald’s excellent ofxCv addon, which integrates the powerful OpenCV library into openFrameworks. Controls are detected by finding contours (blobs) in an edge-detected version of the image. 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. 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. Disagreement is preprogrammed. THROUGH A SCANNER, SKULPTURHALLE by Cosmo Wenman. Risks and challenges It will likely not be feasible to scan all of the pieces I’ve listed as targets.
I will prioritize them according to a mix of public interest and practical, on-site considerations as they may arise. Of the 30 or so targets I’ve listed, I will attempt to scan at least 20, and I am shooting for getting at least 12 solid, viable (3D printable) scans. I won’t be able to guarantee that any particular scan will turn out well. 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.
Golan Levin's Free Universal Construction Kit (2012). This series of adaptors allows interoperability among different kinds of children's toys, such as Legos®, Tinkertoys® and Lincoln Logs®. The project is decades too late to have helped me with my own childhood battles with proprietary toy formats, but on behalf of future generations, Mr. Levin, I thank you. 2. 3. F.A.T. Art Institute Chicago Collaborates With Museum Lovers For Ongoing Digital Curation Effort #3dthursday. 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.

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. You should be a good public speaker to present new discoveries to others. Mining Habitat for Miami Projects Art Fair. Marius Watz “Space Filler” At Flux Factory “Not So Silent Auction” #3dthursday.

EmailShare 146EmailShare Picture courtesy of Simon Fieldhouse Tomorrow, the MakerBot Community and the Metropolitan Museum of Art join forces to realize a common dream, one likely to revolutionize how we all think about art and museums. For the team from the Met Museum — America’s most iconic museum, a world-beloved, forward-thinking art institution — the dream is to collaborate with cutting-edge artists and DIY-makers, to discover how one might bring the relevant, emerging art practice of 3D capture and 3D printing to bear on the task of enlarging the public conversation about works in their permanent collection.
For the MakerBot Community — many of us devoted lovers of the Met, brimming with stories for how the institution and its collection have impacted our lives — this is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to clip on our Met Museum entry pins, roll up our sleeves, and do what we do best for the betterment of lovers of the Met world-over.

Laser cut letters say more than words Words are a great way to send a message; to record, document or transfer thoughts and ideas. But have you ever given much thought to the letters that make up these words we use so freely every day? Here is an interesting project that set out to do just that. Caspar Lam and YuJune Park from Synoptic Office created Alphabet Topography, where the physical forms of letters have a direct relationship to how often they are used.
“…we developed it from a desire to explore the idea of language landscapes” The above image shows how the characters W or G are hardly raised at all, whereas vowels and more frequently used consonants tower above.
