Sculpteo participates to the Designer’s Days 2012. From May 31 to July 4, immerse yourself in the Paris design scene. Multiple places and designers are presenting their work and some of them are using 3D printing.
We created an interactive map of places where you will be able to see 3D printed designs in Paris in the next days. Discover the work of Elium Studio at La Rotonde, Patrick Nadeau at Jardins Jardin aux Tuileries and Elise Fouin at Les Ateliers de Paris. They present pieces 3D printed by Sculpteo. Sismo and Made in Design are also showing a photomaton that will let you get a 3D print of yourself and the exhibition Multiversités Créatives is showing innovative pieces made with 3D printing.
Paul Marx, owner of a Sculpteo store that he embedded on his website my3Dscanner.com, is the featured store of the week. Thanks a lot for sharing so many interesting links and advices! This interview will definitively be useful for anyone wanting to modelize easily for 3D printing.
Artist in residence Norwood Viviano presents the sculpture project that he is currently creating at Corning Museum of Glass. He is using 3D printed landscape models as parts of his urban landscape glass sculptures exploring issues related to industry and population shift within manufacturing cities.
Olympic stadiums are complicated pieces. They include outside and inside parts, small details and large flat areas. What kind of other buildings may need to model hundred of seats and large green surface in the same time?
Complicated model means… 3D printing! Ravensbourne college London lecturer Jon Fidler designed the 2012 Olympic Stadium in 6 hours using SolidWorks. It took him only a few hours more to 3D print the model, using FDM technology. Here is the great time-lapse video that came out of the project:
