Sarah's 5 Faves: 3D Printing Moments

November 30, 2015

 

I wanted to post a quick shout out to some of my favorite 3D printed works that I hope show you more facets to this amazing process, and inspire you on your own journeys.  Although a small list, I wanted to showcase the diversity of applications out there for 3D Printing, for that is what hugely inspires me as a particpant and a witness.

 

 

Iris van Herpen and threeasfour

 

...Because everytime I see their 3D printed fashion items walk the runway, my creative side is revitalized; the scale, the details, the other-worldliness of their work has inspired me to push the boundaries with my own.

 

 

Neri Oxman’s Wanderers

 

...Because it gives us all a glimpse of Stratasys' groundbreaking printers through an incredibly luxurious and fanciful project that would get anyone’s mouth watering.

 

 

Frank Benson, Juliana

 

...Because it is a striking use of dual material printing, and combined with its unique finishing, created an unforgettable experience seeing it in person at the New Museum.

 

 

"3D Printed" Meniscus

 

...Because it is a straight up amazing feat that almost seems unfathomable.

 

 

The Museum of Arts and Design's Out of Hand Exhibition 

 

...Because it was the largest 3D printing exhbition I have ever seen, and because it hit the nail on the head through showcasing a wide variety of projects that emphasized the process more as a craft or a means to make, and less as a sterile, inaccessible technology.

 

 

What I hope the takeaway from all this is OPTIONS, the amount of options you have at your disposable to utilize 3D modeling and printing, whether as a step to completing your project, or as the sole means for creation.  Also, FANTASY; 3D printing can help realize your most ambitious and imaginative thoughts with some unreal results- so go for it, feel inspired, and work inspired.
