It's Hard Not to Stare at the Stairs in the Largest 3D Printed Sculpture in Cuba

There are few places in the world that 3D printing technology hasn’t touched in some way. We hear and write about certain areas more than others; for example, Dubai with its 3D Printing Strategy tends to show up in the headlines on approximately a weekly basis. Some of my favorite stories, however, come from countries […]

Made In Space's Additive Manufacturing Facility Celebrates First Anniversary Among the Stars

How time flies. It’s hard to believe, but it’s been an entire year since Made In Space launched its Additive Manufacturing Facility to the International Space Station. Yet while it seems as though the company’s second 3D printer went out into space just last week, the Additive Manufacturing Facility has accomplished so much since then that it’s […]

RIT Students Build and Program Their First Ceramics 3D Printer in Only Three Hours

I envy current college students, to be honest. When I was in college, 3D printing had existed for a couple of decades, but most people I knew hadn’t heard of it. I didn’t know what it was at the time, and I definitely didn’t know of any schools that had 3D printers; mine certainly didn’t. Now, […]

3D Printing in Art and Architecture: Miles Gertler Explores the Familiar and Unfamiliar

Form and function are two important aspects of any design, whether for art or architecture (or anything in between). When bringing that design into the third dimension, 3D printing helps to ensure that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, as sometimes function can follow form, or vice versa — or the two […]

Dutch Designer Uses 3D Printing to Create Large-Scale Deer Artwork

The art of sculpture requires complexity and sophistication to supplement the smallest details of every aspect of the figure. Particularly, 3D sculptures of animals such as deer demand an experienced sense of visualization and particularization to ensure the expression of the animal is conveyed to the audience. Paco Raphael, a graphic designer, pop artist and […]
