Can you imagine the holidays without a Christmas tree covered in tinsel and baubles? Google gets into the festive spirit by placing 3D holiday trees in more than a dozen places on Google Earth 6. Check out the Rockefeller Center in New York City. The only thing that would help make this scene even more festive would be crowds of people and a light dusting of winter snow! And don’t you just love how the ornaments on the Christmas Tree...

3D printing for architects


Posted By on Dec 14, 2010

Initially, 3D printing was not created for architects. In fact, most 3D printer manufacturers probably didn’t even foresee their machines’ potential in architecture. The printers were mainly designed for the aerospace and automotive industries, or other sectors requiring physical realization of elements in order to test their design. Things have changed, and 3D CAD applications are now very much a part of the design process. 3D...

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...
