The show focuses on the Nohwitz series, and McClure and 23 other, different artists had their interpretations of his designs printed courtesy of Bold Machines.
After Bre Pettis stepped down at MakerBot to take on a new role at Stratasys, he’s been working on the Bold Machines initiative, and shortly after that announcement, the group unveiled a 3D printed feature film, Margo. Since that release, each week or so the group launched a 3D character model.
Now McClure, who designs various pieces for his Rocketboy Customs, has spent a half a year working with Bold Machines and taking part in their 2015 program. We first covered Nohwitz back in March.
The character he came up with for that project, Nohwitz, is a “Cubicle Creature based off of the office know-it-all that absolutely knows nothing. Although his main design incorporates a blue skin tone with fangs and hands, he is constructed, using 3D technology, so that he can assemble into a variety of different versions. Designed with snap on features, he comes with three different hand options and three different tooth options.”
Bold Machines, The Innovation Workshop at Stratasys, are pioneers working at the frontier of 3D printing, use Stratasys, MakerBot, and Solidscape 3D printers and partner up with innovators to “explore new approaches to industrial and personal applications and fabrication.”
A small team, Bold Machines includes Bre Pettis, Robert Steiner, Elizabeth Randel, Nathan Worth, and Geo Salas.
The Rotofugi Designer Toy Store & Gallery was established in 2004, and they’re headquartered in a vintage building on the edge of Lincoln Park in Chicago. Now Rotofugi say they’re “one of the world’s premier sellers of designer toys from artists all over the world.”
For “Nohwitz All,” 24 artists will display their takes on Rocketboy’s original character.
The versions will come from artists going by: 64 Colors, Betso, Davemarkart, DrilOne, Frank Montano, Infinite Rabbits, James Fuller, JC Rivera, Jeremiah Ketner, JFury, kOmega, Malo April, Malo One, Max Bare, Mike Die, Nugglife, One-Eyed Girl, Patrick Wong, Rocketboy, Rsin, Tasha Zimich, TaskOne, Travis Lampe, and Veggiesomething.
The opening reception was held on Friday, May 8, and the exhibit continues through June 7, 2015.
