Rotofugi Gallery, Bold Machines and Ryan McClure Roll Out Nohwitz All Show

Share this Article

Ryan McClureThe Rotofugi Gallery has worked with Chicago-based artist, Ryan McClure – also known as Rocketboy – on a debut show of his newest 3D printed figure show, entitled “Nohwitz All.”

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.

nowhitz all figureAfter 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.”

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.”

You can check out this latest set of interpretations of the 3D printed “Nohwitz” figures from Rocketboy and Bold Machines on the Rotofugi Gallery website.
