What can you do with 3D printing ?


Posted By on Nov 29, 2010

3D printing allows designers to manufacture whatever they invent. Obtaining prototypes identical to those made in the traditional way is much more economical with 3D printing, as you cut the high costs of creating a mould. According to Wohlers Associates, there are possibly more than 25,000 3D printers around the world. The possibilities offered by 3D printing are virtually endless. This technology can be used to: – Create...

Design of the Week : Okazaki Zyou


Posted By on Nov 24, 2010

This week’s design was created by 3D artist Noboru. This Great Gate – Okazaki Zyou – is a beautiful structure, and the 3D model of it is artfully designed. I discovered this model while browsing Google Warehouse, Google’s gallery of 3D objects, and used Google Translate to find out what this fine building was called, and Google Maps to discover its precise location. Okazaki Zyou is located on Tokaido (the East Sea road). It’s a...

The Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Cheops, or Khufu) was built in 2570 BC, 4579 years ago. It is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in Giza. It is also the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to have survived largely intact. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered in casing stones forming a smooth outer surface. What is visible today is its internal structure. Some of the stones...

We have collected the impressions of Thibaut Claeys, winner of a 3D print of his work. Could you briefly describe how you got the idea for your model, based on the suggested theme? The idea was simple enough: I kept the concept of the blue caterpillar that everyone knows, but I chose to make it quite long, a bit like a worm, and with a very expressive face… You won a physical copy of your figure using 3D printing. How did you feel...

Sora is the protagonist of Kingdom Hearts, a series of video games developed by Square Enix in collaboration with Disney. Sora is a teenager who lives on Destiny Island with his best friends Riku and Kairi. He is chosen to receive the Keyblade, a key-shaped weapon which he uses to fight the forces of darkness. Ryodo, a student at the Paris Institut International du Multimédia, has created these 3D models that seem to have popped...

This week’s feature is “The impossible triangle”, an object modeled by Patrick Emin, founder of the CADxp and ExMateria websites. Mathematicians among you will surely have recognized this variation of the Penrose triangle, also known as the Penrose Tribar. It was first created by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd in 1934. Mathematician Roger Penrose independently devised and popularized it in the 1950s, describing it as...

3D printing is a form of additive fabrication technology that is used to create physical objects layer upon layer. The object itself must first be modeled with 3D CAD software such as SolidWorks, Maya, Sketchup, Blender and so on. Zcorp’s ZPrinter 650 is the machine we use for color models and works like this: – The 3D file is “sliced” into separate images corresponding to each layer – The printer deposits a 0.1 mm-thick...
