The Turbulence & Technique of Starry Night Translates to 3D Print & Wins First Place at AMUG

The Turbulence & Technique of Starry Night Translates to 3D Print & Wins First Place at AMUG

If we played a word association game regarding Vincent van Gogh, it would be fairly predictable. Van Gogh? Ear. Gone by razor. Best artwork? Starry Night. Turbulence accompanied by nightmarish light, yielding splendid—yet scary—dramatic color. Obviously, from the hand of such an incredibly prolific painter, the world remembers Starry Night in particular with good reason, […]

The Power of the New Stratasys J750 3D Printer Exemplified through Versatile Artwork of Ervinck & Sanchez

Although we certainly applaud the serious innovations being applied via 3D printing to help patients with processes like better medical care and allowing researchers to work toward creating innovations like 3D printed tissue and organs for transplant, one day helping to save what will probably be countless lives, this technology has also had great impact in […]

Include, Not Exclude: Italian Designers Allow the Blind to Appreciate Caravaggio Through 3D Printing

Caravaggio was a painter born in Milan in the late 1500s who evolved to be known as one of the most famous painters, well-known for his use of shadows and darkness to contrast subjects held in the light. At one time known as ‘the most famous painter in Rome,’ when not using his considerable talent […]

Paint By Numbers Inspires Jason Preuss’ 3D Printed 2D Paintings

One year ago, we reported on a Michigan man who 3D printed an incredible dome clock that stands 4 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and 1 foot deep and looks like it has been hand-carved and inspired by antique designs that pay great attention to intricate detail. This designer, Jason Preuss, is a Michigan-based maker who […]

‘Spherical Creations’: Artist Dario Santacroce Creates Amazing 3D Printed Sandstone Sculptures

Traditional artists are turning to using 3D printing in their work, and making some very interesting hybrid art — that is, art made using both 3D modeling and traditional hand finishing techniques. As I recently reported, 3D sculpture seems to be a hot item, especially when it comes to representing classical geometric forms. Italian artist […]

3Doodler Artist Profile: Esra Oguz’s Doodled Designs Prove That Practice Makes Perfect

Esra Oguz first started 3Doodling when her cousin handed her a 3Doodler pen in Dubai in late 2013. At first, she had a difficult time grasping the concept of “how to create 3D objects with soft, smooth, curved surfaces” and she just kept working on it. Within a week, she presented he cousin her first […]

Despite the desire of desktop 3D printer manufacturers to put a 3D printer in every home, 3D printing is often seen as a technology that is reserved for engineers, scientist and inventors. It’s true that 3D printing started out as a way for companies to prototype and even manufacture their products. It has had a huge […]

Designer Creates Incredible 3D Printed Crossbow

When people ask me about 3D printing, invariably the subject of 3D printed guns comes up. Obviously, they have heard of the Liberator and I think it’s only the second most popular question I get asked, the first being “when are we going to have real replicators like in Star Trek?” But for all the drama […]

While we highlight many artists involved in the 3D printing process, a select few are completely unforgettable, like German artist Vincent Brinkmann. Known for his astuteness and passion in celebrating the imperfect—and the glitches of technology, Brinkmann has previously shown us a different type of glimpse into the relationship between man and machine, and the […]

Defiance with a Purpose: Two Determined Artists Scan a 3,300 Year-Old Nefertiti Bust & Share 3D Files with the World

Truly understanding ancient Egypt is a never-ending source of challenge and fascination, not only for archaeologists, but for people around the world. And while names such as Tut and Cleopatra tend to take the top spots for fame, Nefertiti has always held her own in terms of glamor and mystery. It has always been hinted at […]

Vicky Somma Presents Her Multi-Colored 3D Printed Aviary–Created on a Single Extruding MakerGear M2

The name Vicky Somma is becoming synonymous with 3D printing–and sincere, fun inspiration. She taught herself how to use a printer and then became a motivating force for others with her infectious enthusiasm, finally even causing her husband, Ryan, to ‘catch the bug’ and begin making his own newsworthy items. At this point we’ve covered both […]

3D Printed Kinetic Sculpture Pays Tribute to Arthur Ganson’s “Machine with 23 Scraps of Paper”

3D Printed Kinetic Sculpture Pays Tribute to Arthur Ganson’s “Machine with 23 Scraps of Paper”

Arthur Ganson is a modern sculptor working in the medium of machines, or “kinetic sculpture.” His work, which is currently being exhibited at MIT, is constituted by all kinds of obscure and archaic-seeming mechanical parts frequently augmented using everyday household items: an artichoke petal, a Chinese fan, cans, a violin, a wishbone, cat whiskers, and even an […]

ReallyMake App Offers Ease for Designing & 3D Printing Pottery Profitably, Seeks Manufacturers, Resellers & Hubs

Life simply doesn’t get much better than sitting down at the pottery wheel, whether alone or with some like-minded artisan friends, cranking up the tunes, and throwing pots. The potter is often able to experience the joy of creation, meditation, and camaraderie, all at once, via clay in hand. Often, though, the hustle and bustle of […]

Back to Handcrafted Basics: Talented Artists Toss High Tech & 3D Printing Out The Window

As someone who has failed miserably in the art of whittling, woodworking in shop class, knitting, crocheting, and anything that involves using a couple of what seem like unwieldy yet magic wands to spin yarn and textiles into spectacular ready-wear creations, I understand the ‘draw’ of digital tools. It’s easier. We use machines and computers […]

American Gun Show Uses Art and 3D Printing to Start a Conversation about Guns

The United States Constitution for the most part is a remarkably well written document that lays down in clear and precise language the framework for our nation, however, there are exceptions. Whichever side that you fall on in the debate over the Second Amendment, it is hard to deny that it is a little vague and […]
