Visualizing the invisible

Kung Fu Motion Visualization from Tobias Gremmler.

Regarding technical comments/questions: I used C4D for this production, but also did similar work back in the late 1990s with 3DS, or experimented with real-time environments. However, motion visualizations have been created even in pre-digital times with light, photography or costumes. Visualizing the invisible is always fascinating. >

Digital Grotesque

"Digital Grotesque is the first fully immersive, solid, human-scale, enclosed structure that is entirely 3D printed out of sand. This structure, measuring 16 square meters, is materialized with details at the threshold of human perception. Every aspect of this architecture is composed by custom-designed algorithms."

A new 3D device: 3D copy printer named Zeus

What is the difference between 3D printing and 3D copying?
3D printing alone requires users to provide 3D digital files such as .STL from CAD software programs (Solidworks, Sketchup, etc.). 3D copying is a simplified process where you place a physical object into the machine and receive a plastic copy without any 3D drawing software skills required.

One Touch Auto-Copy
Why did we choose to integrate a 3D copy function into our machine? We believe that having a complete 3D machine (scanning and printing together) will provide the best user experience. This simple and intuitive combination will solve device compatibility issues and more importantly, lower the 3D scan-to-print learning curve. Simply press the copy button and the ZEUS will automatically do the entire copy process for you.

Nice compact family friendly 3D printer

"The MakerBot Digitizer quickly turns the things in your world into 3D models that you can modify, improve, share, and 3D print. There's no design, 3D modeling, or CAD expertise required to get started, and the MakerBot Digitizer delivers clean, watertight 3D models in approximately 12 minutes. It's a fast and easy way for anyone to create 3D models! The simple, yet sophisticated software, MakerBot MakerWare for Digitizer, is optimized to work seamlessly with MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers, and also allows you to share your scans directly with the Thingiverse community."

The Art of 3D Print Failure

"This print had several problems. I switched from a 0.5mm nozzle to a 0.25mm nozzle, the 0.25mm nozzle was much more difficult to calibrate. This weird hole/window problem was caused by several things, too low of a temperature, too few perimeter passes, and a imperfect calibrated extrusion. Things I did to fix it: increased temperature from 230 to 245. Increased perimeter passes from 1 to 2. Changed the extrusion multiplier from 1 to 1.05. It took two days to figure out all those changes, but now Yoda prints nearly perfect."    Walter Gordy

Scientists build artificial ear that looks and works just like the real thing - using cells from SHEEP and a 3D printer

Mail Online

The researchers from Massachusetts worked with a plastic surgeon to create the 3D mould.
 It was filled with cow collagen while the team grew enough cartilage cells inside rats to replace the collagen in the mould. 
Wires were then added to help maintain the shape of the ears.

Once the cartilage in the mould had fused and set, researchers put the ear through various stress tests to analyse its flexibility. A layer of skin was also applied to make the ear look more lifelike.

Your kid's first 3D printer!

Printing from your iPad

Play-Doh 3D Printer
"First, some quick assembly (of the snap-together variety) and your Play-Doh 3D Printer is almost ready for action. Add 2 C batteries, plug it into your iPad, and launch the free app: iPlay-Doh 3D. Quickly design all sorts of things on the free app and then send them to your Play-Doh 3D Printer. Add up to 3 different colors (they'll blend like soft serve ice cream) to the top of the Play-Doh 3D Printer and then watch your iPad for directions. The iPlay-Doh 3D app will let you know when the printer is ready for you to start cranking."

"There are two different cranks on the Play-Doh 3D Printer: one to drip the Play-Doh down onto the conveyor belt and one to move the conveyor belt back and forth (to make sure the Play-Doh gets in just the right place). Sure, the overall product isn't as sturdy as an expensive 3D printed object, but it will air-harden and can be painted just like one. With the Play-Doh 3D Printer, you'll learn basic CAD skills, bow hunting skills (just kidding), and 3D printing skills. It's time to stop reading and get one now. Go on. Get!"
