UntitledAs one of the top five emerging markets, Brazil is a giant in South America regarding size, economy, rich natural resources–and a sophisticated and diverse population. In a country that’s rising in nearly every way, certainly 3D printing is not to be left out–and especially with the student and millennial generations.

Living in a busy country with a thriving economy that requires many architects and engineers, 24-year-old Jefferson Bento is using his new passion for digital design and 3D printing to cater to their market–as well as for his own simple enjoyment. While additive manufacturing is certainly geared to transform the industrial and manufacturing arena, artists and designers like Bento are plenty enthused about getting in at the desktop level as well.

After graduating with a degree in computer science last year, Bento decided to go into the freelance 3D business. Interested in art and design, he began drawing as a child, and then later advanced to integrating that into 3D design.

“As design is great to materialize our imaginations and ideas, I have always been connected with technology and since 3D printing exploded all I had interest in [was] having a 3D printer,” Blento told 3DPrint.com. “I chose to acquire one this year due to my high didacticism…”

UntitledWith 3DBlento he has created his own firm that centers around both graphic design and 3D printing, and serves the industries of:

  • Architecture
  • Engineering
  • Arts
  • Entertainment and recreations
  • Medical

Owning his freelance company allows Blento to work on intricate–and impressive–designs like his latest 3D printed architectural sample which is stark white, with a layered and modular design, which allows him to take the fabricated building apart, from the roof down, and display its structure–showing off a working design that would well serve professionals in that field interested in making more interactive prototypes.

In an animated video that shows off his graphic arts chops as much as his 3D printing skills, Bento gives a detailed look at his latest, favorite piece. The Brazilian maker has long been a Blender fan, using it for all his design needs over the past six years unless a different program is absolutely required, and that was no exception for his latest 3D printing project.

“It took two weeks to print everything,” said Blento. “I thought how it would be nice to do a video fast showing all angles while the printer is working, so I made a 3D animation.”

twoNot only does the animation show off a great 3D printed architectural design, Blento does quite a job of showing off the power of 3D printing with lights, camera, and action. Using PLA, Blento was excited about using his own 3D printer just purchased a few months ago.

At 3DBlento, they provide:

  • Animation and vignettes
  • 3D modeling
  • Creation of mobile applications
  • Gaming applications, to include virtual and augmented reality

Not that miniature models are anything new in the architectural world, but with innovative designs like Bento’s, it’s a great example of the services 3DBlento can provide, allowing for incredible latitude and easy edits in design, as well as speed and affordability with 3D printing.
