  • “Here be 3D printed dragons” [#geekgirl]

    [From the CSIRO]: “Earlier this week we received a letter from Sophie, a 7-year-old girl, asking if we could make her a dragon. Here is Toothless, a female dragon (Species Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus) 3D printed out of Titanium.”

    So we (meaning Mez Breeze Design) can finally let the (Schrödinger’s?) cat out of the very tightly zipped bag: we’re *extremely* excited to officially announce our latest co-production with Dreaming Methods: “#PRISOM“. #PRISOM is a Synthetic Reality Game where a player is set loose in a Glass City under infinite surveillance. Will you be brave enough to enter?

    The project is making its début at (and is funded by) the “MARart4 Transreal Topologies Exhibition” as part of #ISMAR2013, the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality in conjunction with SA Uni’s Wearable Computer Lab. So if you’re keen to don a HMD (Head-Mounted Display) and throw yourself into #PRISOM, head to the Adelaide City East Campus of the University of South Australia on October 1-4th.

  • When #3D printing meets the Fine Arts

    “It’s clear that there is art in it. If there were no challenge involved in designing for 3D printing, Materialise and the curator would not have had much upon which to judge their contest. 3D printing is not, in any way, about eliminating the artist or his or her hand. By the contrary, especially with desktop printers, a lot of individual personality shows through, even in the simplest of designs, like in the Block Light – designer Stefano Giovacchini says he deliberately works with the marks of the low resolution printer. We at MakeTank emphasize the role of the Maker in every product, for it’s not just the object but the story behind it that is important. The iconic pop art of Andy Warhol will forever be associated with that artist’s name, eccentric character and unique creativity, despite attempts to erase himself from the multiple using technology. Had Warhol had a 3D printer, the result would be the same.” [via maketank]

    “Now the process of 3D printing sugar has been perfected and Kyle and Liz have started their micro-design firm Sugar Lab for custom 3D printed sugar. With their background in architecture and their love for complex geometry, they took advantage of 3D printing to bring custom sugar to the genre of mega-cool cakes. “3D printing represents a paradigm shift for confections, transforming sugar into a dimensional, structural medium.” said Sugar Lab.”
