Oakland-based Emerging Objects isn’t your normal design firm. Rather than designing homes, interiors, furniture or products from common materials, the four-person group is trying to create materials for tomorrow’s 3D printed objects
We’re happy to announce we started producing in the US! Since i.materialise is an international 3D printing service, we want to produce more regional to cut shipping costs and delivery times. Recently we started producing several materials in the US but we’re still finalizing the details.
No, we’re not referring to the identically-named giftshop at Kennedy Space Centre where you can buy all the freeze-dried ice cream you’d care to eat; we are instead referring to NASA’s Advanced Digital Materials and Manufacturing for Space initiative at their Ames Research Center. It’s basically a FabLab for NASA makers.
We’re reading a piece from last year by Christopher Mims in the MIT Technology Review, in which he dumps rather strongly on the notion that “any object can be rapidly synthesized with a little bit of energy and raw materials.”
We’ve learned of a new source for comparisons of 3D printers: FindTheBest.com, which is a comparison and review site for products and services of all types. Now they seem to have added a section for 3D printers, at least the less expensive ones.
Get ready for the next i.materialise meetup! We’d love to welcome you to our Spring Meetup 29th of March. WHO Every designer, independant business owner, working professional ,…. that’s interested in 3D printing
At Sculpteo there isn’t a day without getting special requests.
