It's Hard Not to Stare at the Stairs in the Largest 3D Printed Sculpture in Cuba

There are few places in the world that 3D printing technology hasn’t touched in some way. We hear and write about certain areas more than others; for example, Dubai with its 3D Printing Strategy tends to show up in the headlines on approximately a weekly basis. Some of my favorite stories, however, come from countries […]

Artist Builds Ceramic 3D Printer, Gives Over Control as It Builds a Scaled Model of Devil's Tower

The summer before I began high school, my family and I embarked on a road trip with my grandparents, aunt, and uncle, from Ohio to Montana, where my grandfather was born. That is a very long time for a kid to be cooped up in a car, and though my family members probably hoped my […]

Dutch Designer Uses 3D Printing to Create Large-Scale Deer Artwork

Dutch Designer Uses 3D Printing to Create Large-Scale Deer Artwork

The art of sculpture requires complexity and sophistication to supplement the smallest details of every aspect of the figure. Particularly, 3D sculptures of animals such as deer demand an experienced sense of visualization and particularization to ensure the expression of the animal is conveyed to the audience. Paco Raphael, a graphic designer, pop artist and […]

Ukrainian Artist Unveils 3-Meter-Tall 3D Printed "Walking Flower" Sculpture

From the earliest cave drawings to the “Mona Lisa” portrait that hangs in the Louvre, art is an interesting, fluid concept. A piece of artwork that moves you to tears could have virtually no effect on someone standing right next to you and looking at the same piece of art. Art comes in all forms and […]

Glass Sculpture Artifact Replicated in Full Color with Stratasys J750 3D Printer

One of the most exciting prospects of 3D printing technology is the ability to replicate—and thus preserve—ancient and historic artifacts, enabling us to keep a fragile or rare piece of history alive. Still, many of these valuable relics are oftentimes coated in rich colors and tones, and while the 3D printing industry has exceeded expectations […]

3D Printed Sculpture Showcases the Detrimental Nature of San Francisco’s Rising Housing Prices

While the Bay Area’s continuously growing tech bubble has led to a plethora of innovations for both San Francisco and the rest of the world, this boom has also caused a major upswing in the price of surrounding real estate, which has attributed to longtime local residents being driven out of their neighborhoods. In order […]

3D Printed Art: Is it Really Art at All? If Not, What is It?

One of my favorite things to read and write about is 3D printed art. I’m continually amazed at what people are able to create with a printer and a roll or two of PLA, or a CAD program and some metal powder, or a 3Doodler. The medium is gaining popularity in the art world, but […]

While 3D printing and other forms of digital manufacturing are frequently described as the center of the next industrial revolution, the technology is also changing the shape of a very different field – perhaps more quietly and slowly, but just as surely. While painting, drawing and traditional sculpture will never disappear from the art world, an […]

'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 […]

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 […]

Beautiful 3D Printed Sculpture Appears to Move, Thanks to Lighting and Mathematics

You may, at first glance, mistake it for some strange, exotic sea creature – a newly discovered species of jellyfish, perhaps, or sea urchin. Whatever it is, it’s beautiful. Luminous, undulating, it literally glows with life as it rotates in its bowl, beads of white sliding across its surface. It’s not a creature, though – […]

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 […]

Chinese President Receives a Microscopic 3D Printed Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is estimated to be over 13,000 miles long, and, at its tallest, is about 26 feet high. It’s hard to believe that something so massive could be shrunk down to the size of a human hair, isn’t it? Well, in fairness, the actual wall has not been shrunk. But thanks […]
