Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has created a set of bespoke titanium horseshoes for a Melbourne race horse using additive 3D printing.
By: Jason Brown When you think of carbon fiber, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If you think of a carbon fiber mesh, you’re not alone! Carbon fiber (fibers made from carbon) is made of ultra-thin carbon atoms. These fibers typically make their appearances mesh-like which are then coated with special resins to
The Suspended Deposition Project, Brian Harm’s new 3D printing concept, is built to change the way architects create and design structures. According to Harms, “This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes.”
The possibilities afforded by 3D printing keep expanding. From spider robots to prosthetics for ducks , the sky seems to be the limit. Researchers at North Carolina State University took the technology one step further with the discovery of a method for printing liquid metal (watch above) SEE ALSO: 7 Free Tools for Creating Your Own Fonts Michael Dickey and his team used a mixture of gallium and indium alloy, which remains liquid at room temperature
When I started my career as a professional artist, my first introduction to working in 3D was to create what was then referred to as 3D illustration . Basically, I created physical clay sculptures, built small props, took photographs of them, and then used those photos to create illustrations. These sculptures began to take up a lot of space, and before long I had an entire room devoted to storing them.
