Eyal Gever: Pushing the Limits of 3D Printing

Eyal Gever is an Isarelian artist using 3D printing to create amazing and complicated sculptures. Entrepreneur in a first life, Eyal Gever is now a sculptor combining his passion for both code and art. Interviewed by the BBC, he shares his passion for 3D coding additive manufacturing.

IKEA Sofa Player: Towards Mass Customization

Mass customization is everywhere! IKEA just launched the Sofa Player, a website with a bunch of great videos about their sofa collection.

You might argue that it has nothing to see with 3D printing… but we think it’s deeply related! More and more consumers want to own very personal objects. We want things that we can play with, hack, make our own. 3D printing gives you this capability by letting you create or enhance all things around you.

What would you do to your couch?
